So we have been through 3 bandages so far!!!! One mellow turquoise, one screaming yellow and the other safety orange!!! I licked and chewed on the first one and we had to run to the vet to get it changed out. My days have been full of Mom & Dad constantly saying "Justus not lick your foot" "Justus, NO, not lick foot" "Leave it" Justus Leave it lone" So I started licking just the tape at the top of the bandage - then I followed that up with using the huge bulb of a bandage to scratch my head.
The vet gave Mom this cream to put on my bandage that smells REALLY bad and tastes even WORSE!!!! Well, so, now, I LIKE IT!!!! The whole house smells like it now!!! Even my king size bed that I let Mom & Dad share with me has that delightful odor!!! Hey I wonder if Mom will put some of that on my Frostie Paw today???? Kinda like a Frostie Paw sundae with Stinky Cream on top!!!! This could be the beginning of a new product!!!
So on Sunday Mom had to take my bandage off cause it shifted down my foot and Mom was afraid that it would do more damage!!! Now I have to lay here beside Mom (instead of on my bean bag near my window)!!! I need to be in there guarding the front of the house in case a fly goes by!!!
What's a dog to do ~ I thought we were SUPPOSED to lick our wounds!! I thought we had "MAGICAL HEALING POWER" in our saliva!!!
Mom says if I will just leave my foot alone it would be healed in 3 days!!! So pups, what does heeling have to do with my foot getting well???
Here's a Justus tip of the day ~ Don't ever get a foot injury!!!
I sure hope Mac Macadoo's leg gets well soon - he has a big bandage on his leg, but he got stitches too!!! Macadoo - Not lick it!!!!
