One of the little italian greyhounds boarding with me has been debarked, was done before current owner got him. She said to me that she has to keep an eye on him as the downside is that if he hurt himself he wouldn't have the voice to cry out in pain - very good point. He does have a teeny weeny voice, when he barks it comes out as a high pitched woowoowoowoo! Actually it sounds quite cute, but yes I do keep an eye on him when he's out running around, I can't rely on hearing him bark to know where he is!
DA, thank dog Logan wasn't hurt, but I have had a good chuckle at the old lady and her poor little dog, sounds like a scene out of loony toons!
