Wordless Wednesday


NOT... I just can't post this photo and not tell you all about it, now can I?   Mom was playing Frisbee with me last night before dinner in a big open snow covered field.  She saw black dots on the snow and realized I was bleeding.  She wrapped my foot and leg up in a towel and drove me straight home and carried me into the house.  She said my Dew Claw Pad was split wide open.  She said I must have cut it on some ice or a sharp rock, maybe even some broken glass?  She put a pressure dressing on it and called the 24hr. Vet.  They said to bring me right in so off we go again.

The Dr. said he would need to do surgery later that night to re-sect the wound and do internal and external stitches and cover it with  dog proof bandage. That she should leave me there and if all went well I could go home in the morning with some pain medications and antibiotics.

I thought mom was gonna cry and I was not going in the back room without a fight!  Well, I did not win that fight but mom gave me her sweater to sleep with while I waited.  

All went well and dad picked me up this morning and brought me home.  He kept taking pictures of me and texting them to mom at work so she  could see how I was doing.  I was really disappointed that she didn't pick me up with dad.  Now I had to wait all day to see her!

Mom came straight home from work and I gave her a greeting she will never forget... gave her another rash on her face from so much lickin' !
I gotta wear this thing on my leg for 3 weeks!  Leash walking only and have to cover it with a bag when I go outside in the snow... we got lots more snow and I can't play in it!  Cruel World!

The good thing is I don't have to wear the "cone of shame", I only lick people! 


I found my better half


I wanted to join the fun!  Mom went to petfinder.com for me and I found Shelby.  She is one of 60+ Aussies up for adoption!  That is so very sad.  I hope they can all find loving homes like mine.  Shelby looks a lot like me right down to the blue eyes.  A very handsome girl.



Shelby is a seven year old Australian Shepherd looking for her forever home. She is located in Bellingham WA.  Shelby loves children and adults and is is energetic and loves to play.  She would prefer to be an only pet as she is not dog or cat friendly.
