Daisy's doing better...

I should probably post another photo here, and still might tomorrow, but I wanted to get the word out that our dog, Daisy is doing better.

As I posted previously, Daisy was bitten by a rattlesnake last week. We rushed her to the vet and hoped for the best. It seems she is going to get past this with little consequence. The swelling is almost completely gone, just a small amount in the saggy skin below her mouth, and she seems to be healing. She seeped blood for several days but it wasn't anything serious. The bleeding stopped for good over the weekend, probably around Sunday, and she is stealing food again. I think it's safe to say our little girl is going to get past this.

Her lip where the snake bit her is still healing but is scabbed over. Now we just have to worry about necrosis, which is common after a snakebite. However, the vet thinks given her youth and health, that she should make it through with no necrosis either.

She was a very lucky doggy and I love her all the more for her strength.
