Two days ago my daughter was petting the neighbors dog through the fence, she loves him, and he took a very small toy from her. I ran over when my daughter started crying because she wanted her duck back. The dog dropped it but as I tried to get it he grabbed it again and I couldn't get it out of his mouth through the fence, he swallowed it. We went and told the neighbors but thought it would be small enough that it was not a big deal. It was one of those little tiny Pet Shop figures.
The next day the neighbor came over crying. The dog was rushed into emergency surgery. The ducks beak was causing problems and obstructing. The dog thankfully is okay now but it has created a lot of stress. We just moved here and the surgery was over 2K. I am so sad and stressed and feel so unlucky. My parents offered to work out something and pay for it because they know we are just getting on our feet, but I feel so bad. My daughter was there when the neighbor told us about it and was devastated, she is only five. I am trying to stay positive, I just wonder why these things have to happen? Especially when things are already tough enough.
