    Or stupid bird, either way you want to look at it.

    One of the PR's got into the dog yard, I don't blame them much the grass is growing amazingly there.

    The victim is sitting in my living room in a dog crate.

    At first I thought she'd lucked out, I found no huge tears or punctures but now she's totally lame on the left leg. I can't find a break along the foot, leg or thigh but the problem may be the hip.

    She put up with being vetwrapped for stability really rather well, and after that began to eat and drink. She graciously accepted an offering of scrambled eggs.

    I'm torn. Hip pelvis is long term. But she's eating, pooping and drinking. Color me a sucker I guess I'm doing live in chicken again.

    For those who send good thoughts and prays, we'll take them.

    Thanks for the thoughts - it helps to have some people who don't think I'm insane to have her in the house and who will wish her well.

    She can shift around and she's calm so here we go.
