” A man said he saved his dog’s life after sucking venom from a rattlesnake bite out of the animal’s nose. Bobby Jenkins said he began feeling ill after getting his dog, Tank, to a veterinarian. He went to the hospital and received a dose of antivenin.

In all, Jenkins needed four vials of antivenin at a cost of $3,500 per vial.”

I love my two dogs, but if one of my pooches got a tick I would be too squeamish to remove it. Bobby Jenkins has my admiration for his remarkable demonstration of love for his canine buddy, he deserves a medal from PETA.

Our furry friends are priceless, and 14K is a small price to pay if it means saving the life of a dog.

Both man and beast have fully recovered, but I pray that Jenkins managed to kill the rattlesnake.

I hope Jenkin’s wife didn’t give him hell for depleting their bank account. At least Jenkins will always have the undying love and appreciation of man’s best friend.
