As I sat Christmas Eve in an emergency veterinary hospital, I could not help but wonder how we, as farmers, get ourselves into these situations?
It all started back in October when I wrote the blog Don't Worry, The Farmer Will Care For Your Abandoned Dog. Yes, there was a stray dog. This time a black lab broke our perimeter woven-wire fencing system. He interacted with our 7-year-old chocolate lab. Now, our farm family sits in an emergency veterinary hospital the day before Christmas.
