Nala made me aware of something today...
I have a steel wire crate I have used for a couple years now. I never had a problem with it.
I got robbed last night...they stole everything. I lost my car keys, my cell phone, my gps outta my car. Why they didnt just drive away in my car... no idea.
I had a locksmith coming over to change all my locks and rekey my car, so I crated the dogs. (and spent every dime I had saved for christmas
a few minutes later I hear Nala screaming. Literally screaming. I go to see what is going on. She had managed to get upside down, with her head flat on the floor of the crate, and her lower jaw wedged in between the bars below the door. She's screaming and bleeding. After trying to free her by hand, I went to get a hammer to try to seperate the bars...didn't work. Went looking for some large pliers to maybe stick in and pry the bars apart. Didn't work either. (shes still laying there whimpering, upside down). I finally got a wood board, and managed to stomp on it enough to loosen the bars and free her. It never even occured to me something like this could happen... she is not hurt bad, just looks like she bit her tongue a bit, and maybe loosened some teeth... I don;t find any lacerations or injuries.
They do the darndest things..... guess I will get a plastic crate ASAP...wich may be a little while, now that a thief has cost me all my Christmas money, and then some. When it rains it pours I guess. I think Karma got it backwards on me.... I've been really good....WHY??
