Bailey and Halloween  

Well, we had an interesting evening yesterday. Just as we were about to go to sleep, I noticed some blood under Bailey. She had a deep puncture wound. It was about as thick as a straw and about 1/8'' deep. I put some peroxide inside the wound, then Neosporin, and wrapped it with horse bandage. That prevented her from licking her wounds, and we went to sleep. The next morning, I checked her spirits and they were fine. She ran with the other dogs, had her meal, and was acting quite normal. However, I was still worried about her wound, so I called the vet and took her in to be seen. I am so glad that I did. Apparently, the wound was way deeper than I thought it was. She had to undergo a surgical procedure, sutured, and had a drainage pipe put in. Poor baby. She is the best of all the four dogs. I felt so bad for her.

I don't know what caused her wound. It may be a dog bite. Both vets don't seem to think so. There should have been more damage around her skin. I went around the perimeter of our house, and found a part of the fence sticking out. It is the same diameter as the hole in her body, and lies just as low as her body. I wonder..... I removed the culprit. Hope we won't have any more problems.


We celebrated Halloween at a friend's house. Ethan won for most original. He wore this rebus puzzle on his shirt. Here's a closeup:

See if you can solve it. If not, here's the answer.

She is one of Abbie's friend. They went to high school together. And, she is one of our workers as well. I just loved her costume.

Did you guess Ethan's?

Yeah, I betcha it was that bit of fence! Carrie ripped her ear once on the fence.

Poor Bailey! Give her kisses from me.

Poor Bailey. The bit of fence does sound like the culprit. I'm glad Bailey will be okay, but how sad.

The pictures are terrific. I love the puzzle shirt.

haha Crookshanks and Hermione are too cute. And shouldn't that frog be a tadpole? ;)
