Sweet Mosey!

Josh and Mosey on the grass outside the Orland Veterinary Hospital ...14 Oct. 2010
Seeing this photo on Facebook this morning made me soooooo happy! Mosey (Joshua's Jack Russell Terrier) was hit by a car on Monday (it was a hit-and-run). He's gotten out of the house a couple times and has always headed north away from the busy road. We think this time he and Charlie, Lucie's dog, were attracted by all the kids walking home from school which is just a couple blocks down. Charlie was lost for a while and found 3 hours later and escaped injury. But Mosey was not so lucky. He sustained severe head trauma. For the first 2 days he didn't open his eyes and we weren't sure if he was going to survive. Yesterday he started moving on his own and trying to open his eyes. This morning he is doing even better, tho not out of the woods. He can't see right now and moving isn't easy for him but we're hoping it's temporary. The vet said he might be able to go home tomorrow. I am so thankful for the power of prayer. Josh and Lucie are going to buy baby gates now to keep this from happening again. Cause no matter what some people might think pets ARE family and are just like kids. Mosey is definitely Josh and Lucie's baby!
