AUGUST 14, 2021-
It is with deep sadness that I have to announce that my dogs were attacked by a pack of Coyotes Thursday, August 12, about 10 pm. The Coyotes lured them into the swamp to the east of our property.
Tex came home first with bites to his face, but will recover. Zena came home yesterday about noon with bites to her left shoulder, front legs, and hind quarters, but will recover. Blue came home a couple hours later with various bites, but was also bitten by a snake. She will recover. L'D and Zeus, because of their thick, long coats, did not sustain any significant injuries.
My beautiful Smokey came home about 11 p.m. last night. She was savagely attacked and sustained bites all over her body. Her chest was ripped open and trachea was torn. Smokey was tenacious and did NOT allow predators on her property. She was rushed to the vet and they did all they could do. I had to say goodbye to this beautiful dog about 1 p.m. this afternoon. My heart is broken. She will be missed...
