Dog's Recovery after a Machette Attack | Care2 Causes

I had a dog who was attacked by someone with a machete; he had a huge slice on his side and could hardly stand up. I didn't discover it until many hours later, because I wasn't home when it happened (one of my room-mates had left the gate open), and the vet said it was too late to stitch it and to just keep it clean and watch for infection. The next day, I went for a walk with my other dog, assuming my injured one would want to stay home and rest; instead, he got up and determinedly went with us -- a huge lesson in not succumbing to self-pity and acting like a victim, even when you are one. He recovered fairly quickly, with a large permanent scar on his side, but with no pain from it. Bless these people for saving the dog in this story; every thing we do to help living beings like this contributes to the well-being of the planet and to the good of the human spirit.
