|I've debated on going into this but honestly I just need to let out some of the emotion behind the whole situation.
About two weeks ago Happy and I were in a car accident. I was riding in the passenger's seat and Happy was seat belted into the back. We were blindsided by a young man who had no license, no insurance and was in the country illegally. I came out without a scratch but Happy ended up with three broken ribs, and several gashes.
Happy's health insurance is going to take care of his injuries, but due to the status of the young man that hit us there is really no recourse for any any sort of money.
This has put me in a bit of a situation, I've been unemployed for several months and having difficulty with getting unemployment and now I am in the situation where it is unlikely that I will be able to get a job. I have been leaning on my older trained 'back up' dog Shay but honestly even if he hadn't just turned 10 there was a reason I never used him as a full time service dog. It's nothing in his behavior or even his task work, it's that we just don't mesh well and as such I have a hard time trusting him.
I had been looking to get a puppy to start training to replace Happy but that feel through when I lost my job. So I'm more or less sitting here trying to figure out where I go from here.
Sometimes things just don't work out.
Now that said the really good news is that Happy Should be alright his stitches will come out shortly and with the x-rays that were taken today his ribs are looking good but I'm not sure that he will be sound to work when he heals, this will be a take it as it comes sort of thing.
I'd love if people could at least send good thoughts his way... He's my best friend, my partner and I don't know what I'd do without him.
