Upsetting news from Shiloh when Sally's beloved dog, Derby, was accidently hit by a car at Shiloh. Sandi and John were arriving at the ranch on Saturday afternoon and were driving very slowly past the barn area, and as always, the dogs are so happy to see new arrivals and all came running. Somehow Derby was hit in the excitement.
Derby was taken to the 24 hour emergency animal clinic where they discovered that his pelvis was broken in three places. He will remain in the clinic until Tuesday morning when he will be taken to a surgery center where he will have his pelvis repaired with plates.
This is devastating for Sally and for Sandi and John. It was a horrible accident, one that could have happened to anyone, and everyone just feels awful.
But, because of this I am implementing a new rule at Shiloh- NO MORE DRIVING CARS INTO THE RANCH. There are just too many dogs, pigs, goats, burros, and horses wandering freely, it is an accident waiting to happen. Please park all vehicles outside of the gate. If you have feed that needs to be brought in, the guys can help with the gators.
I will keep Derby's status updated, he is a beloved member of the Shiloh Family and I know how much everyone loves him.
