    BLOODY DOGS !!!!!

    Jinxed myself big time this arvo. Mojo was at home by himself this afternoon and driving home from work i was thinking about how good he's been not touching the dressings. As i drove past the vet a little thought of 'Please dont let me be back there this arvo with Mojo getting a redress'......................welll you guessed it ,he ripped out all the stitching holding the bandage up and had it half off. Grrrr!!!!

    Took 3 of us to calm him down and keep him still while the old dressing was removed and replaced. The new ones not stitched on but taped. The wound looks a bit freaky with the drainage tubes and everything. $70 later........bloody dufus he is..LOL.

    He was super stoked to be at the vets again though !!! I starting to think he's done it deliberately just so he can see the girls again.

    Ha, ha Tough or just bloody silly ?? Bit of both methinks.

    Just reread my post at the top of this page and feel a bit of a ******** for mentioning the $70 bucks. The litte fear/freaking out dude was for the look of the wound not the money. I couldnt care less if it was twice that for a redress today and while i'm far from rich (poor, ugly, happy actually) money's not a issue when it comes to my family.

    The good thing is he dosnt seem to be in any pain, maybe discomfort from the dressing but he even tries to shake hands with his bandaged paw....the big dag.

    Its unavoidable but he will be alone again for about 2 hours tomorrow. He's going to have a heap of frozen bones, a pigs ear, a cow hoove and heaps of toys. Fingers crossed they keep his attention for long enough for me to get home before he decides to repeat todays shenanigans.

    Those dressings get really itchy after not very long. You should try it, like wearing the same pair of tight socks for three days straight...

    Maybe get him one of those terrible collars - elizabethan collars or something I think they are called? Cones of shame? Sammy has one at the moment because he will rip stitches and/or staples out no questions asked. Last time what should have cost me $200 in vet bills cost me over $1000 because he completely opened his wounds up so badly they needed to be closed and re-bandaged 3 times. It was just lucky he never got an infection... Right now if I'm not home Sammy has his collar on and yes he hates it and yes he makes me feel like the meanest person in the world for insisting he wear it but if he just leaves everything alone he will be better in 10 days. Last time he managed to stretch that 10 day recovery time out to over a month!

    He's on his last chance before the cone of shame comes into play. Even the vet dosnt want to do it to him but if he dosnt leave it alone we will have to go down that path. That'll be really interesting.

    The thing is it's wrapped right up under his armpit. It was the only way to go about it properly and it's definently going to rub for sure so the vet gave me a few tips as to how to cut the bandage slightly and also add some cotton wool under there when it becomes a issue. A rash or even a laceration is a given but the pressure has to be applied to the elbow and to bandage it properly theres no other option.

    If it gets wet , i have to cut it off straight away to avoid infection and we will be back to square one. And of course its raining this week !! Oh well, could always be worse....poor Sammy makes me realise that.

    Any chance of a Bucket head photo of the Samster 99 ??
    Promise i wont laugh !!

    Sean, doesn't matter whether you're rich or poor... $70 is $70 is $70... and if you didn't have to spend it, even worse. Don't worry about feeling like a doofus for naming a price - we all do, it's hooman nature.

    Hope Mojo get's used to those bandages... it's funny what a dog will do to foreign things. When Rosie was little, she had eyelashes growing into the eye, rather than facing out, so had to have that little part of the lid trimmed. We started off with an eye pad, cover and small head wrap. Lasted all of 3 hours once she got home. Back to the Vet for a buttoning. Literally. To keep her eye protected while the eyelid skin healed (no stiches because of the position), her eye had buttons attached. I kid you not. I've photos somewhere (this is back before the digital era, so will have to hunt through negatives to find it - will try tomorrow) - she looks so silly with this big plastic button sewn to the top of her eyelid.

    Worked a treat though.

    Do whatever works for Mojo. He'll thank you in the long run, even though he'll make you pay in the short term!

    Goodness Pinkest, that would be really interesting to see the photo of the button on Rosie's eye ...

    Hope all goes well with Mojo today Sean. Sounds like you've left him heaps of things, hopefully he's hungry and the food you leave is more inviting to him than the bandages ... they're buggers aren't they ??

    Beware of Mojo walking into the back of your legs if he does have to wear the cone of shame, what painful memories I have of those things although he'd be taller so it would be the back of your thighs, my small dogs seemed to enjoy their revenge of ramming the back of my calves
