Poor Foggy!

There was some drama on Monday. Mike got home from work and Foggy was not in the yard. He had gotten out of the fence somehow. I got off work (we had a meeting) and headed home at 8pm. I called Mike and he said he had 'terrible news'. He said that Foggy was gone and he'd been looking everywhere for him for 2 hours with no luck. I held it together for a bit but then I crumpled. Just ask Susan...I called her hysterical. Anyway, I got home and still no Foggy. We were making signs to put out in the neigborhood. We'd already discussed the fact that Foggy was probably gone for good. Mike had left all the outside lights on and the garage open in case he came home. Mike went out to the garage to get something to hang the signs with and there Foggy was, in the garage!!! I hadn't been home more than 15 minutes and he showed up.

He'd been in a fight. He had a pretty nice gash in his side and he was feeling pathetic. Mike carried him downstairs and we warmed him by the fire. We cleaned his wound and wrapped him up snuggly. He didn't move a muscle all night. Mike took him to the vet this morning. They put him under and drained the wound. He's going to make it. We feel very fortunate that he came back and he's alive. We have no idea how or why he got out.

Here's poor pathetic Foggy after we found him:

So glad Foggy found his way home! Maybe he was trying to get back to his old home for some reason. Who knows what they think or what messages instinct sends them? We do love our pets. I just left the vet's office teary-eyed and Rusty is only there for the day to get his teeth cleaned! Best wishes to Foggy for a quick recovery.

I'm glad Foggy made his way home. I hope for a speedy recovery. Give him a hug and a kiss for me.

Sounds like Foggy and crazed dog hada little run in. Glad your pup came on home afterwards and that he will be okay. Nothing like a little doggie drama and it seems you have had your share, huh?
