So this morning I get up to let the dogs and AND THERE IS BLOOD ON MOLLY'S FUR. And there is a gash on her chest, and it's smallish but it's big enough to need stitches.
So I've emailed Kapono to let him know I'll be late or a no-show, and I had to email Dennis and Lisa on their vacation in Italy and tell them everything, and I'm waiting for Dennis and Lisa's vet to open so I can call them, and then I get to load Molly into Lisa's minivan and drive half an hour down to Kea‘au so she can get stitched up.
And I didn't take the dogs on their walk because I didn't want Molly to exert herself when she's BLEEDING FROM AN OPEN WOUND ON HER CHEST, and I didn't want to take Belle without taking Molly because that's not fair to Molly and also BELLE DOES NOT DESERVE A WALK. So Belle is all hyper and sad and confused because she didn't get a walk and I cannot explain to her that I'll walk her later and also IT'S ALL HER FAULT BECAUSE SHE ATTACKED HER FRIEND, A HELPLESS OLD HARMLESS SWEETHEART OF A DOG. DDDDDDDDD:<
...Belle has problems, okay, and it's not entirely her fault, I think she was abused before Dennis and Lisa adopted her, and she's apparently doing much better than she used to, and 95% of the time she's a real sweet dog and I love her, but... ARGH. VIOLENCE IS NOT OKAY. I am very displeased with her right now. D:<
ETA: Called the vet and they suggested that since the wound is smallish, I can try keeping it disinfected myself and letting it heal on its own. ...Should be okay, I guess, because I don't think Molly can reach it with her teeth to make it worse. But I need to go buy some Betadine, can't find any in the house. So I will go find Betadine, and clean Molly up, and then I will think about going to work.
Belle's starting to catch on that I'm upset with her, but of course she doesn't know why. *sigh*
