I Have Rabies!!!!!!!!!

Aren't dogs just grand! Mine put on a fine show today - he may have given me rabies! He somehow managed to catch and kill a woodchuck about 12 inches from me. It all happened in about 10 seconds, if that. When he shook the thing to death, I got SRAYED with blood! It was mostly on my legs, but I got some on my arms and FACE, too. My face. Covered with woodchuck blood. What the f*$%? Here's a pretty picture:

So now the woodchuck is getting tested for rabies and I'll find out in a week if I need to get rabies shots. In the meantime, Hank has been quaranteened by the Lakeville ACO. And to make matters worse, a rabid coyote was found in Lakeville yesterday so they are taking this super, super seriously. I love my dog!

Only a Nelson would endure such a bizarre experience.....Seriously, if i didn't know you I would not believe half of the odd things that happen to you.
