Bad week-end for Chief..

Poor Chief....What was suppose to be a good week-end turned not so good.
We were at the mayerthorpe Fair for the gymkhana event and on the first night, Chief had an encounter with a not too friendly Rotty. To keep it short, Chief's ear got ripped and he ended up spending the night at the local vet clinic. Now he has to wear this huge cone for the week.....Good news is that there won't be any permanent damages and he turned 6 months today.
Oh ! We had to put him on the scale before sedating him and he his 75 lbs now :eek:

Yeepp ! He's figured out pretty quick how to use that cone to his advantage...he runs straight into us to get attention...The funny parts is with the horses : they stare and "snort" at him, then start running all over the place.

And.....to add insult to the injury, I've come to the painfull decision :( to get him neutered this coming Friday (that's when the cone cone off).

Is a dog suppose to get neutered at six month?

Six months is usually what vets recommend, TQ.

How is Chief doing, exkalibur? Is he following doctor's orders? Sending :goodvibes: for a quick and easy recovery!

He's doing OK but his area is sensitive and it bugs him a lot. We had to put the cone back on him to keep him from licking his wound. The vet re-stiched his ear (it was only stiched on one side and the other side was open). I'm looking forward for him to get back to his usual devious self.....

Well, this morning DW took the cone off and watched him for a while and he didn't appear that his "area" was sore anymore....So after his breakfast he got a fresh femur bone as a pick-me-up kind of treat. It's hard to describe the excitement and how he's devouring it, but he's happy right now.

Don't worry, DW's hand didn't get chewed off...
