Ear / Better

Note from mum : Smudge’s ear is getting better and he’d like to say a big thank you to everyone who asked after him. He had part of his ear removed by the vet which was hanging off and 4 stitches were put in. He wasn’t happy to see the vet again but he’s now got the all clear – and some biscuits. He finally perked up today – in a big way! – which is nice to see as he’s being very clingy this week. He’s allowed to have long walks again and enjoyed one today, getting into everything, and almost caught a fox (which are the same size as Smudge around here).

Toodle pip!

Ear / Limbo

The stocking wasn’t staying on at all so mum went out and bought some more bandages this morning. Poor mum was getting quite tired of putting my bandages on again and again, for I was constantly pulling them off. By late morning, my ear was bleeding again. By the afternoon it was getting very sore and looking really nasty, or so mum was saying. Mum took me to the doggy doctor (AGAIN!) and he tried to shave my ear but I wasn’t having any of that! I was also told, again, that I’m fatter than my last visit – how embarrassing. How is a cute dog like me supposed to pull all the lady dogs if I’m too podgy? Then he gave me a lovely biscuit and a belly rub. I overheard him telling mum this happens all the time with groomers, as dogs aren’t like people, they can’t sit still like people do, and before you know it, you’ve cut somewhere you shouldn’t.

So I’ve been taken home and put to bed after a *small* dinner. I asked mum for second helpings but she said no, as usual. But it’s always worth a try, isn’t it? In the morning, I’m going back to the doggy doctor and staying for the day. He says I’m going to have a little sleep, and he’ll shave the area, clean out the wound, and put some stitches in. He says it won’t hurt and they will look after me. I can’t wait til all this is over.

Ear / On

Mum took all the tape and bandages off and the piece of cotton wool she had used to stop the bleeding was stuck into the wound. She couldn’t bear to pull it off and called a friend for help. Andrea pulled it off very slowly and I didn’t even flinch. Now I’m wearing a (slightly less cool) stocking leg around my neck to keep my ear out of the way, and let the air get to the wound. Mum has put aloe vera antiseptic gel onto the cut (she said ‘Whoo it’s quite big isn’t it!’ in her ‘I’m scared’ voice) and she gave me a biscuit from my treat jar. It’s a day of rest for me today!

Ear / Off

Mum took me to the groomer today. I not only got a short back and sides, I got my ear cut as well. I can’t help shaking my head and every time I do, it starts bleeding again. The groomer put a bandage on it and it came off every time I shook my head (it’s sooo itchy!) so mum got some medical tape and now I look like I have a white collar. And I’m getting lots of cuddles 🙂
