and submitted my name for entry into Worst Dog Mama Ever hall of shame. Fillion has had two visits to the chiropractor now. His sacrum, left hip, several middle vertebrae, right shoulder were out, also a few in his upper neck. He must have hurt so bad. He wouldn't let me touch his back after the adjustment. After two days of restricted activity, he was so much better. Second visit, the doc was very pleased, only had to realign a few things and hopes the third will do it. I feel so bad I let that sweet dog hurt for so long. While I will never know what happened that morning I heard him scream, I'm suspicious a coyote got him by the rear. I don't know how they got away from him, or if Benson came to Fil's rescue. The other option is they collided or something running the fence line after the coyote. Fil had no teeth marks on him. But since that happened I had an up close encounter with this particular bastage. (Sharon will know exactly how close I was!) I was standing in my backyard, early morning, all three dogs were out with me barking their heads off at what I thought were the two coyotes I saw across the fairway. Then I saw the one right by my fence--and he hopped the fence, heading in--with me standing there! I ran toward him yelling. If we were 20 feet apart I'll eat my hat. He hopped back out, went about 15 feet away and turned and just looked at me. I was still yelling but now I started chucking gravel at him. He trotted off. So now the dogs are not allowed outside after dark without me. The dog door is closed except during the day. I installed a solar motion activated led security light on the fence. I am searching for a permanent solution because it ticks me off my dogs can't enjoy their yard without supervision.
