While I was taking my son to his trumpet lesson tonight, my wife took over son's chore, of walking the dog. We got home, and I noticed blood stains on the front steps and on the matt in front of the door. I pointed them out to my son. Inside, my wife tells us that the dog, bounding up a little hill, apparently rammed his foot onto some sharp object, and was bleeding all over the place. Call the vet. Take him in to see what's up. Part of the pad was sliced off. A wound went something like an inch and a half up the paw. Fortunately no major arteries were cut, but he had to be sedated, sown up, literally carried out to the car then back home. Five hundred bucks later, the dog's ok--a little on the drugged side, but ok--and wearing one of those tubular collars so he can't undo the stitches.<br><br><br><br>Great wits are sure to madness near allied.--John Dryden, "Absalom and Achitophel"
