Biting the Bullet

Below is a photo of me with my buddy, Seger (named after Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band). We met when we did some Airedale Rescue work together a few weeks back. After hearing about Maggie the SoCal Airequeen's near drowning I thought it only fitting to share Seger's story.

That's Seger on the right, looking like he's about to tell off the paparazzi.

About a week ago Seger was bitten twice by a copperhead snake and almost died! (Seger stomped on the little sucker a couple of times, I hear). But, his quick-thinking family rushed him to the emergency vet, and in true Airedale fashion, he pulled through beautifully! I just saw him yesterday and he's back to his old self (except with a sleek new hairdo). It just goes to show, you can bite the bullet but the bullet bites back.

I just want to let Maggie, Seger, and everydoggie out there in blogland I've met in the last week know that I'M GLAD YOU'RE HERE! To all of the quick-thinking moms and dads out there, thanks for doing what you do best - loving us. Let's all be careful out there!

All of my goober love,

Hey Stanley!
All I can think if is leave it to an ADT to a) get in trouble and b) survive one of the hardest things to overcome!
Seger is a true hero!

Scary stuff! There are lots of snakes and lots of coyotes here where we walk all the time, it's good for all of us to stay alert!

Glad to hear that Seger is OK :)
