puppy


Well for those of you who watch and ask after Duke, he is doing well. Getting better everyday, meds are almost done and stitches are dissolving without problems.

My son was in the garage last week doing some work with the grinder. Duke followed son there. He snook up behind son and as I understand it, went to catch a spark with his tongue. WELLL, his tongue got caught by the wheel. It ripped it right down the center... another sliver and he would be barking with a lisp. Snake tongued.
I got home and rushed him to the vet. He had cut 2 main veins and a bunch of little ones. He was one scared little puppy. Very quiet...
We got him knocked out and stitched up. 12 braided stitches inside. He had 3 gashes, 2 on 1 side, 1 on the other. We let those go, surface gashes. Took a bit to get the bleeding to stop, but after a bit... poor little shit.. his tongue looked like a piece of dried out steak.... My son didn't think that was too funny though...I had to keep sending him out of the room. Blood and stitches and my son do not mix.
vet gave him a shot to wake him up and THAT was funny. Poor baby... looked and walked like a deer after rutting season. Back legs were just a quivering away.... I kept laughing.... son got mad...But pupp looked like he had really tore one on...
We got him home and he was calm for about the next day or so, then back to his normal self.
Son called my at work yesterday. He had gone back to the garage to finish up his project and turned the grinder on.. Pupp couldn't get into the house fast enough or find a perfect hiding spot. He tried my bed but no one was in the room with him. He ended up under the computer desk with my step mom...LMAOOO Guess that will be 1 thing he will never bother with again.....
Now if we can get him to quit eating socks, make his toys last more them a few hrs, eating wood, eating pine cones, opening bathroom doors. He has stopped chewing on my bras though
