been up fer a while,,,hadda run to the store ,after the health club , to get some baby aspirin fer the ol dog doxie,Oscar,
seems he got into a "scuffle"with the other, younger male,"Buster"
i was downstairs, the wife was just going to sleep b4 working midnites,,and i heard a major dog fight going on,,,i started yelling at them , while coming upstairs,,,i found the styro from some left-over Greek food(gyro's ,YUM
) half out of the garbage can,,,
seems one or both of them decided they'd like to clean the "plate"
both are mini doxies, so this is a feat in itself..both got into fighting it seems,,,Oscar took the brunt of it,,,he was holding his front paw up , so i checked him out,,no response to touching it,no swelling , limb temp was even etc. (geez, i sound like i know a med. person
) found that he had a tear/bite mark on the secondary pad of his foot,(by the dew claw,,,) well by now the wife is up , due to the noise,and we proceeded to clean and wrap Oscar up,with the bandage arsenal we had here,,,the wife's gonna bring mo' better bandages home this am,,,(the doc's at work , got her all worked up , making her think , mebbe tendon damage, ) but it think he's just got a cut/bite to the pad, plus the bandage is still on this AM,,so that's a plus!
Oscar Myron's(Meyer(sp)'member a weiner dog LOL)about 13-14 yrs old,,,
b4 we got him about 8 yrs ago, he used to be a tough ol',roam the neighborhood dog,,they used to have to scour the 'hood to find him,,i think the way he acts , he got a few live and non live meals on the side
the ol boy is now white muzzled,,(ya Shirley, like me , his "Dad"
)and has about half his choppers, but i think he held his own the best he could against the young'un,,
sorry for the long mornin' post,,,but you know how i get,,
well back to my tank work,,,(some vacation)
