Life has returned to normal after the experiment adding a playmate for Jessy ended yesterday. The dislike from the previous few days degenerated into outright war. Bella ended up with a damaged ear throwing off enough blood that it looked like she was about to turn red. But it was just an ear. However, what decided the issue was when Bella decided to pass on her pain and ran towards the sports field barking furiously across the entire distance. That field had at that moment a coterie of kids out doing their daily P.E. Luckily she arrived to an empty field for the kids had returned inside their classrooms. But she hadn’t responded in any way to my calls and whistles.
I could not have that. Nope, no way. I live too near that field and it would have been impossible to have certainty. Not am I one of those that keeps their dogs inside. I like them out running about.
Anyway, she was into the car and driven back to the rescue place within the hour; with me thinking things weren’t that bad every five of so miles. But coming to my senses and continuing the rest of the fifty mile trip.
Jess is back to her slightly neurotic normality. And I’m proud of her for displaying gumption and sticking up for herself whilst being bullied.
