Blood At The Dog Park

I love taking my dog, a tall yellow lab named Lacy, everywhere I go… To the mountain, the beach, Downtown and everywhere in between. But be careful at the Dog Parks, some people are mean and the worst injury my dog has ever gotten was yesterday when her and another dog collided after going after the same tennis ball… needless to say, she got the worst of it.

The other dog (a stockier black lab) had a cut on her lip, but created no where near as much blood as Lacy had. Lacy was drooling blood and dripped it all over the concrete as we were leaving the park.

I had to take her to the pet hospital for some stitches and a few teeth to be pulled out. The veterinarian said she hasn’t seen a case before where the tooth socket got broken. She pulled a few teeth out of Lacy and popped back in the K9 (luckily the blood vessel wasn’t compromised).

A wire now spans from one K9 to the other to hold the loose one in place. Two weeks no rough housing and eight weeks soft foods and then the wire can be taken out. It would have been a lot worst.

My name is Mauri Fabio and I live in Portland, OR. I love being outdoors and traveling to various locations. I even got my geology degree from the University of Hawai`i because I wanted a degree that would allow me to travel and be outdoors. I enjoy everything there is about traveling. The unknown directions a trip can quickly take, making friendships with new people, and the endless adventures there always seem to find me. Visiting new areas of the world gives me something to look forward to in my life. I think constantly about where the next destination is that I want to trek through and the adventures that may await me. So far I have traveled to Beijing and visited the Great Wall, Terracotta Warriors, endless temples and eaten foods that westerners would cringe at the sight of. I've roamed through Perú and Ecuador and stayed in various hostels, camped out in the Amazon rainforest and drove up the Ecuadorian Coast with no clue where we were going just as long as the ocean stays on our left side. I explored The Galapagos Islands and seen abundant wildlife, undertook horrid sea trips to different islands and army crawled through pitch black lava tubes. I've live in Hawai`i and explored the places to go and what the best things are to do, of course on a cheap budget. These journeys are only a fraction of the adventures I'd like to share with you and I have so much more planned for the near future. During my travels I quickly learned that stepping completely out of my comfort zone and into other people's worlds is the most satisfying way to explore.
