I called the hospital at 8:30pm and was told that Lorenzo is stabilized and resting comfortably. Oh, and stealing all the techs hearts. He is still stating his case as usual.
DH went over with Sammie to the neighbor to let them know what had happened and to give them the bills. The wife claimed that they didn't know the dogs were out until her granddaughter reported that she had seen the attack. What happens next depends on what our neighbor does. I want to report these dogs to Animal Control and the Sheriff Department while my DH wants to allow the neighbor to act. Neither of us want the dogs put down...we just want to have the neighborhood safe again for walkers, bikers, and small dogs.
All the dogs are missing Lorenzo especially Ama. She ran around outside looking for him in all the usual places like under the VW and then tried unsuccessfully to play with Leeapaul, Lilly, Lulu, and even Kole.
Finally, she saw a little white dog in the field next door and tore off to go play. I think she was very disappointed when it turned out not to be Lorenzo. (She has learned what the switch means but doesn't 'state' her case like Lorenzo.) Sammie had to console her by holding her like we do Lorenzo and rubbing her belly. Funny sight!
Tomorrow we travel back to BR to find out if Lorenzo has to have surgery for the ribs or if some other treatment is necessary. I really miss that little backtalking mess!
