Minor surgery on our dog, Nala

Living out where we do I never really know what I am going to do in any given day.  I could wake up to find myself doing any number of things that I’ve never done before.  Wednesday morning I woke up and went outside to find a big gaping wound in our dog Nala.  She had gotten into a dog fight and I found myself playing the part of a surgeon for the first time.  Since there is no vet nearby, I grabbed a needle thread and soapy water to clean the wound and started stitching.  Evidently the stitches are working because it is almost a week later and the wound is healing nicely.
