INJURY

MOM SAYS I'M HURT

Heya Hounders,
Jack here with today's post. Mom says that I'm hurt. Seems that sometime late last week, most probably while I was speed patrolling the perimeter of the paddock (doing zoomies) I evidently cut, sliced actually, a pad on the bottom of my right forepaw. It didn't slow me up much but mom noticed me gnawing on it to clean it up and lick off the dried blood. Friday night dad cleaned it up and filled my pad space with Neosporin and bandaged it up. He checked it again last night, cleaned it again and changed my bandage. I've been wearing a protective snow shoe over the bandage since Friday. Mom and dad both think that I might need a stitch or two so I've been more or less confined to the house all weekend. Tomorrow I'm going to work with mom and one of the vets at Confederate Ridge Animal Hospital will look at my "wound" and fix me up. Maybe I'll be able to limp around the house and work the sympathy angle for some extra treats or chewies. I'll let y'all know how it goes.

STEP UP TO ADOPT A PET

If you can, please consider opening your home to a homeless animal, preferably a dog or cat or other domesticated animal; livestock does better on farms and wild animals do better in zoos and parks. Your local Humane Society or SPCA or Animal Shelter has a wide selection of could be, should be, pets looking for new homes. If you can't adopt, perhaps you can at least become a sponsor. We'll show you how to help out Almost Heaven Golden Retriever Rescue and Sanctuary (AHGRRS) on our blog page, but you can help out any organization of your choice, but please help; contribute or volunteer.
