Good Deed Punished: Tuck Got Hooked

Good Deed Punished:  Tucker Swallowed a Fish Hook

My good friend, Amber, and I decided to do a good deed this morning and pick up all of the garbage, dog poop, fishing line, old bait and dead fish at Horseshoe Lake (Chico, Ca) this morning. We collected 80+ lbs of trash. When we were finished I loaded Tucker in the truck and went to wipe some drool from his mouth but it was fishing line. My vet took me in right away but couldn't remove it (stuck in a fold in the larynx) so I had to take him to another vet that had the tools to go down deeper with a camera. This price does not include any actual surgery which the vet is hoping will not be needed (I turned down the blood work for $400). Tucker is still at the vet right now. Please share this request, especially with the people that fish and walk their dogs at Horseshoe Lake. Thank You

Tuck had his first walk today. I kept him on the leash and away from the lake. Thank you for all of your support. We got a good write up in the Enterprise Record today from David Little, editor. I also signed up for the volunteer clean up group through Park Services. p.s. When I posted the amount, it was an estimate from both vets. The final cost came down a little to $1,285.

I picked Tuck up last night. They got the hook out without surgery. The vet said it was tricky but it came out with little damage to his organs. Then... we got home and as I was lifting him out of the truck, unknowingly the truck keys slipped out of my hand and dropped on the floor as I locked the door and shut it. Kim is out of town. I'm looking forward to today.
