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

Awww... poor Chief! The dreaded "Cone of Shame"
Both mine are like bulls in a china shop with that thing!
I'm glad he's ok and there won't be any permanent damage

WOW ......Chief is one big boy for 6 months old and a very handsome one too although they always look so pathetic in those dreaded cones.

Sorry to hear about his misfortunate encounter with the Rottie but glad there will be no permanent damage .......speedy healing Chief.

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.

Oh, I'm sorry he had such a traumatic weekend! Glad the ear is going to heal with no problems!

And don't you listen to them, Chief--you look just as handsome as ever, even in the Dreaded Elizabethan Collar.

awwww poor chief! That must of been very scary! Poor sweetie. The least daddy could do is put some motorcycle decals on the cone to make it look more manly.

Six months is usually what vets recommend, TQ.

How is Chief doing, exkalibur? Is he following doctor's orders? Sending 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.....

Getting better

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...
