Yesterday we had to make the most painful decision ever. Our beloved Tally dog bit me very badly on the arm. Her aggressive behavior has become a scary pattern in the past year and after stitches, dealing with animal control and many phone calls to pet specialists, breed association people and a very kind breed rescue person, we decided that it is in the best interest for both Tally and us to allow the breed rescue find her a new home with a family that is well-trained with aggressive dogs in her breed. My arm is extremely painful but my heart hurts even more. Not sure when I’ll run next. All work-outs and running has been scrapped this week and replaced with many tears and Advil for the arm pain. Nothing I can really do about the heart pain. Only time will heal that. Right now she is at our vet for her 10 days of Rabies quarantine, but we will not go pick her up because that will only delay the healing and make it worse if we see her. We will have the kind rescue people take her then.
For now, it just hurts and I feel a little broken.
