Dogs really are amazing

Dogs really are amazing. On Friday night somehow my market goat got out who was sick on Saturday when I went out to feed the goat was gone and my Tibetan Mastiff Tashi had broken her tie out cable and was gone too so I called Tashi thinking she was just down by the barn but she didn’t come so I walked down by the barn thinking she was down there playing with the chickens or in the mud but no Tashi so I let that go and go looking for the goat I go to the pasture thinking he went out there to get by the other goats but he’s not there so I look everywhere by and in the barn but I can’t find him or her so I get very worried so I tack up and ride up into the woods I ride for about 15 minutes when I see Tashi but she is laying on\ next to something so I jump off and tie magic to a tree and run up to her and she is with Craig ( the goat ) and a dead coyote is about 5 feet from her.

So I go back up to get rid of Craig’s body and I poked him in the eye to make sure he was dead but he blinked. So I run him back to the house and put him in the

It cut the post off. Bathtub to get all the blood and mud off of him and blow-dried him he had one bad cut on his hip so I stitched and tubed him water and get back. He had hypothermia and was so bad he couldn’t hold his head up now he is eating and running around if not Tashi he would be dead.

that is truely an amazing story! Is tashi ok? No wounds from the coyote? Makes you wonder if she could have easily have broken her chain all along, but she is such a good girl she didn't until it was a dire situation. That dog is definitely a keeper and I think pictures are in order of the hero :)

Touching the eyeball prompts reflexive blinking in unresponsive beings.....to differentiate life and death....lack of heartbeat, lack of respiration and lack of corneal reflex.
