Poor Barney was attacked by a dog he’s known for months and was walking with regularly. It was weird and random and unexpected. Luckily, Barney is not too badly off, but he does have four puncture wounds in his bum. He’s going to be wearing the cone of shame for a while, but he seemed okay with another dog when he was at the vet, so hopefully it won’t make him fearful.

Please look away if you don’t want to see Barney’s wound…

So, while Barney’s ear isn’t bleeding like a stuck pig like before, any time he flicks it, it does begin to bleed a bit.  So in order to try to solve this problem and still allow his ear to ‘breathe’, I decided to use a bandana.  When I had long hair, my bandana kept my hair from flopping about even when running around and diving all over the place…hmmm…maybe this would work for Barney too! 

So I put the bandana on and it covers the ear enough to keep it from flapping but still open enough so that the wound/stitches can ‘breathe’.  I’m quite pleased though right now he is sulking up a storm.  Here’s a picture of grandma Barney:

What happens when your dog licks too much…

Yes.  Poor Barney has to wear an Elizabethan collar because he licked himself too much and caused two sores on his back right leg as well as began to do it in other areas.  So he has to wear this for one week.  Right now he won’t come near me.  He’s look at me as if I am from hell.  Not what you want at the beginning of a relationship.  Poor guy.
