Like the confusing noisy traffic in Bangkok, Pa was feeling trapped and useless... unable to do much about anything.
Two other senior vets have seen Nigel and both are optimistic for a complete recovery in a month or two. Right now, he would need to be fed with a syringe. A once happy dog has been reduced to grovelling.
Its always easy to give advise when you are not involved... but when your own dog is so badly injured, you sometimes wonder what else you can do to exert justice. Not a very honorable thought... but sometimes, it possesses you.
The husky owner isn't from a very rich background, and he doesn't stay on private property... you know what that means... any complains would immediately have his dog confiscated. The medical bills would likely take several months to recover has his own parent would probably have difficulty in this economic crisis.
Its really like you have had your dog badly injured and yet still have to bend over and take it. As advocates of tolerance, our own lessons can be a bitter pill to swallow.
