Miss Thang


A little over a month ago, we went to visit our daughter, and put that baby gate up for the dogs. The smallest, Baby, managed to get her two front paws caught in the gate and broke both of them. We have had her at the vets for dressing changes every week since it happened. She's really a sweet little dog, but we have discovered how fierce she can be via the wonderful staff at Banfield who have nicknamed her "Miss Thang." Yesterday, she chewed off the bandage on her left leg, just done on Wednesday. So - in the car and back to PetSmart we went. We picked her up later that day, brought her home, and son of a gun if she didn't chew off the bandage on her right leg sometime during the night. The good news is, she's healing. And the good news is, she hasn't bitten anybody yet, thanks to sedatives and a muzzle. Y'all, don't learn the hard way like we did...never leave a small animal behind a baby gate. It's much too dangerous for them. If I haven't made it by your blogs yet, I will. Slowly getting caught up after the last week. Thanks to you all for your comments and support.

Poor little thing. I never would have thought about a small dog hurting itself in a baby gate. I hope she heals quickly -- and that she will quit chewing off her bandages so she can heal quickly! I hope you and your mom are doing well.

Poor thang!

Is it a chihuahua?

We have a chihuahua ..he is 4yrs old...he has the run of the house even when we are gone...but if we know we are going to be gone up until the wee hours of the morning on a night out..we always put him in the kitchen and have a baby gate up...he has a little bed in there and always stays in it...

I hope Miss Thang makes a full recovery soon!

Been thinking about you Mara...
