C’mon Mom, kiss it better…..
Buckles is living through a Twlight Zone episode!
Awwwww, Buckles is crying.
Stephen Gilbert and others that suggested his paw was hurt were correct. Not his tail as I had guessed.
Poor Buckles. Jill needs to kiss it better.
I did that with my puppies tail last week.
Boy, did i feel bad!
Paul and Jill are so inattentive when it comes to caring for Buckles. At least Calvin’s parents pull no punches when they care for him, even if it’s more a case of tough love.
Beagle #2 came to me as a young puppy and had a “kink” in her tail. According to the vet, at some point her tail had been broken. Due to the attitude of the hunter who had bred the litter for his own hunting, I can only imagine it was from a door or something shutting on it. I didn’t ask – he also had a 5-month old puppy tied to the garage door on a fairly short lead that was up for adoption. I should have taken both. Beagle #2 turned out to be a most charming and sweet, but passive, dog and when she later was an only dog I got to know her much better and we had 8 years together. Beagle #1 was very dominant and highly outgoing, so Beagle #2 was my “shadow dog” during the years I had both. Beagle #2 had the better nose, but she was content with the pack order. She really struggled with moving up to management after Beagle #1 was gone.
Yipe, Yipe. Whine, Whine. My heart fell.
I agree with you Buckles. Somebody is always calling 911, then I have to persuade the EMTs that I will not be going to the ER.
On the other hand, last week I drove myself to the Emergency Room and talked myself in past triage. Sometimes you just have to face it.
Poor Buckles…I figured you would have to go to the vet…
PSA: If your dog has an injury, do NOT quickly reach for the injured area or cause any extra pain. Even dogs who love their owners more than themselves are still animals and they might, in their pain and confusion, bite. Be very careful getting the pet to the vet. We want to go pick them up, try to check the injury. Some dogs will allow it. Beagle #1 almost bit me when I was getting a toy off her dewclaw that had wrapped around it while I was at work, and she loved me more than life itself. She would turn her head towards me, I would pull my hands back, and she would turn her head back forward, looking stressed. I know she was in awful pain, but we got it off and she followed me around for hours afterward thanking me. If we get bitten, we are not going to be as useful in helping our pups.
