All he lost for Christmas were his three front teeth.



This was from a safe game of fetch, just Bullet and I, in a flat field. When he sees the ball he freezes for a second and then pounces. He must have smashed his mouth on a rock.

This makes me think about the question of passion vs safety. I could keep Bullet on leash at all times to protect him from himself, but the sacrifice would be love of life. That's not an option.

Sigh. Welcome 2009.

Did that require an emergency visit to the vet?
