A 12 week old Chihuahua named Smokey was speared in the brain with a metal grilling fork. I can't believe he survived. Read the full story and view the incredible pictures here.
In a strange way, this reminds me of an incident I experienced with a young hamster I had. I went to pick him up and noticed something was really wrong. His eye was bulging out of its socket. It wouldn't have taken much for the eye to fall out and I didn't want that to happen. I rushed him to the nearest vet, who couldn't do anything for him. He said the eye could be removed and the hamster would live a normal life. What? I almost lost my breakfast. I didn't want him to be without an eye. Instead, I sped all the way to the animal hospital, a half hour away, praying the eye would stay put. There, the doctor preformed surgery. By the time I brought my hamster home, he was back to his normal critter self.
Have you ever had a close call with a pet?
