Lucy was exhausted after a morning at the dog park at Chatfield State Park.
(Apologies for the out-of-focus video. I guess the lens was cold and foggy from the weather.)
NOTE: Apparently the official WordPress app I used to upload this video flipped the video vertically. I’ll see if I can fip it manually and upload again.
Saturday while the dogs and I were playing in the South Platte River, Lucy picked up an old fish hook in her leg. She didn’t act like anything was bothering her and I didn’t find it until Sunday morning while I was petting her. One of the barbs of the hook was underneath skin and I was not sure I could get it out without making a bigger problem. Since the area was not swollen or tender I decided we would wait until today to visit the vet.
The vet also was unable to back the hook out so she decided to numb the area with a local anesthetic and cut the hook out with a scalpel. Once the hook was removed the incision site was stapled shut and cleaned up a bit. Lucy was patient and calm through he whole process. After a week of antibiotics the staples will be removed.
While I was walking the dogs this morning Lucy decided she was too clean. As I was watching Fabi attack a tree Lucy took that five seconds to wallow in some fresh scat. She doesn’t normally choose dog poop to roll in but I suppose anything that smells sufficiently bad (good?) will do.
It’s off to the doggie wash at lunch time!
After the bath they were much cleaner… I still was not able to determine what kind of poop she had found. It could have been hobo poop but there was not any corn in it.
