    Yay !!! Just got home to find my puppy all bandaged up perfectly !!!

    He ran at me with his funny straight leg run and then tried to bloody jump up on me !! He's obviously a lot more comfy with this bandage than the last one.
    Someone scored a few treats this arvo for been a good boy......... No cone of shame for my puppy !!!! (touchwood).

    There is an alternative to the cone of shame. It's the big fat collar - like people wear on planes for sleeping.

    They also make the soft elizabethan collar.

    Or there's these

    You know it's weird, I realised today I hadn't taken any photos of Sammy since he got hit by the car, like because I just didn't want a permanent record of this time and how horrible the whole experience has been. And yet, I was thinking about it and perhaps I should take one and stick it up on my door so that every time I leave I am reminded of what can happen if I'm lazy/negligent/give into what Sammy wants to do and I stand a better chance of preventing it from happening again.

    I like the first one but unfortunately I'm 100% confident Sammy would destroy that thing in minutes. He uses his current cone of shame as a tool/weapon to just shove everything out of his way. If he gets stuck, he doesn't reverse or look for alternatives - he turns to brute force (which is just a tad uncomfortable when the object he happens to be stuck behind is you...).

    Glad to here he's being relatively sensible about the whole thing for now...

    We where all excited to get the bandage off today !!!

    However it wasnt meant to be. The drains where removed and there's no infection. The stitches where also removed but just to be safe he rebandaged it so the holes from the drains can heal over and stay clean. If he's leaving it alone it's on for another 7 days.

    The rubbing on his armpit is pretty nasty but he's not showing any discomfort and the vet gave me some cream to start the healing process although we wont have much luck while he's still bandaged. One thing is any pain from the rubbing will keep him off his leg a bit. The rash will heal but more importantantly the wound has to heal and staying quiet will go along way to that happening.

    All in all things are looking good. Hopefully 7 more days should be the end of it all. Seems like a lot of fuss for a little lump.....but ya get that.

    Oh - the 'magic cream' - my vet gives that to me also - and it works a treat ! I am really pleased to hear the pup is going well and stitches etc are out.

    Just think this will all be a fond (?) memory and you will wonder what all the fuss was about !

    Just as an aside note - I hope that this will be the end of it for you and the pup !

    Yay for Mojo

    Best news that the drain is out and there's no infection ... 7 more days must seem like a long time but he's done well this week from the sound of it ...

    He'll be running like crazy once this is all healed ... glad you got the lump out early!

    Hi Sean, forgive me for being so rude I haven't had the chance to say Hi
    and hope your boy is doing ok..
    I have been so involved with these pups and then I got stomach ulcers
    from all the stress I have been under...

    Hows your boy going now ?
    Dogs kids it never ends but we love them all...
