|Yes, the Left Leg is Twice as Big |
After a Run in with a Copperhead
Butcher won the Champion Class yesterday at OHBC's Little Pack Hunt so I was really happy. I took him out to run today and he sounded real good until he didn't. I noticed he was going back and forth on a logging road in the middle of the clearcut and wasn't trying to get in the chase. Needless to say I was a little aggravated.
When the chase ended and the dogs came in, Butcher wasn't with them. I could tell by the Garmin he wasn't moving. I started that way and began calling him. I could see him slowly moving towards me. By the time I got him, it was easy to see why he wasn't running.
He ran into a copperhead and got bit on his left front leg. Thanks to some aspirin, benadryl, and penicillin he will be OK. He obviously will be getting a few days off though.
