This poor girl came in shrieking in pain with her hips untouchable on exam. We sedated her into a pleasant dream and took the needed X-rays. Peggy has a pellet deep in the muscle of her spine. She has another in her abdomen. Her owners rescued her from down south and are kind and taking wonderful care of her.The Story will have a happy ending, but it's been sad getting there. I will keep you all posted. Empathy comes easier to some than others. Shooting a dog with a pellet gun is a bad thing to do. If you're reading this, and you shoot animals with pellet guns, you should stop, it's a jerk thing to do. And I hope you stub your toe.
