The home owner has a security camera in the backyard and there it was on film, showing the Bobcat eating the Yorkie. The husband said it was the wife's Yorkie and it was terrible to see it on film. The other Yorkie was okay.
I have a Yorkie and when I read that, I picked her up and hugged her. I could see a mental picture of a wild animal eating my Yorkie.
Unfortunately, the little eaten Yorkie cannot be brought back. Sometimes we are just fine and the next minute disaster happens.
We had such a disaster happen yesterday. Bob's granddaughter is a sophomore in high school and a professional, at her age, horse trainer and has many trophies to her credit. She owns two horses who won all those trophies. Her desire is to be a Vet and she is a straight A student so she can do that.
Well, yesterday she was in the stall of one of the horses and had something in her hand to give the horse. The horse accidentally bit down on her right hand index finger - she is right handed. He bit down to the bone but did not break the bone or tendon in the finger. She was taken to an emergency room and kept in the hospital over night. She will not lose her finger but will not be able to use it for some time as the tendon is swollen and the tissue, skin, has to heal.
Making matters worse, just the day before she became the first chair saxophone player in the school symphony. Now, there is no way for her to play the saxophone until the finger heals.
She was fine one moment and the next moment almost lost her finger. Thank God, the finger was not completely bitten off.
