Today is one of those days that I would very much like a do over. First thing this morning, I checked on Koira's lip. It was swollen and sort of red as of yesterday morning, and I was hoping it would have gotten a bit better by today. I gave her some benadryl and iced it a little before going to bed. Unfortunately, it appears to be just as bad.
I worked this morning, then headed over to the Friends of the Library book sale at the fairgrounds when I got off work. It was super sunny and clear out, so I didn't spend long there because I wanted to get home and take the dogs out.
Leaving the fairgrounds parking lot, someone backed into my car. It was hard enough to crack the bumper, and my shoulder has been hurting a good bit since then, but overall I am okay, and the dogs were not along thankfully. After getting the other driver's insurance information, I headed home to take the dogs out.
The park was great and sunny, but it meant there were a lot of other people out with their dogs. Most of the people and dogs are regulars at the park, so we knew most of them. This isn't a dog park, but rather, a large park with sports fields, trails through the woods, and picnic areas, most of which allows dogs to be off leash this time of year. It is popular with dog owners around here, and has way fewer issues than designated fenced dog parks. Unfortunately, on our way back to the car after an hour of playing, Koira got bit by another dog. I am pretty sure what happened is that Koira and the other dog were chasing the same ball and the other dog bit Koira's rear leg to get to the ball faster. They were a good distance away across the field, and all I saw was a short spat, and then Koira came back to me when I called her. We went on our way, but noticed a little while later that Koira had been bit. She wasn't limping or giving any other indication of being hurt though.
So, we are basically okay. But, we could certainly be better. I wouldn't mind a do over for the day!
