Like all men he enjoys his comforts!
And he knows how to wrap us around his little paw! Notice the perfect ears?
But he's not spoiled. He's NOT allowed in the house as he's eaten his way through half our furniture. The flooding got the rest!
Anyway, he's always getting away but, he usually comes back for me. He can't get out of our garden but as the builders moved in he moved out. To our rented house. He KEEPS escaping from this garden despite how much we block up his escape route. He can go for hours.
Last Wednesday...Mad Wednesday....he did it again. As soon as I left the house to begin the heavy afternoon with Snuggles. We'd only started the Social Skills class when I got the phone call. From an itinerant "gentleman" who informed me he had my dog. He was bleeding a lot and was missing some of his ear. He got into a dog fight. Scamp? Fight? Couldn't fight his way out of a paper bag him. He'd mind the dog til I got there. He said he'd meet me at a bus stop.....just along from the Travellers Camp! Only then did I realise! Knew there was something wrong. His parting words? "Hope there's something in it for me"
So Snugs and I legged it from class. Rang Mr Jazz ,of course had just enough credit to do so. I wanted him to ring ahead to the vet. Yes, I was going to meet this pavee...WITH MY CHILD IN THE CAR......no problems. Not very good at hearing alarm bells me!
Hubby went mad, needless to say! Got his Garda pal onto it. So the Gardai rescued Scamp. They went there in twos cos even they won't go in alone! they said the pavee's might have lured Scamp in and set up the fight. Then pretend to be the good guys to get some mulah.
We got Scamp to vet for his operation and got him home that night. I went out for dinner with a friend and got home at 12...with half a bottle of vino in me! Poor dog was whimpering. Couldn't cope with plastic collar so couldn't even lie down. I took it off and he slept on the couch. Beside me. All night!
The next morning I put the collar back on and he thrashed about so much that he got the collar AND the bandage off. Blood splatters everywhere. Couldn't sort it. Hubby had just left. Snugs due in school PRONTO. So I got dog into the boot and Snuggles in back seat. Snugs went into the school all by himself......minus his schoolbag!.....and I went to the Vet! What a couple of days I tell ya!
Home with sick child after HIS op last week, now home with sick dog? Both of them on Antibiotics??!! Pure madness!
Things a bit calmer now. Bandage will come off on Monday so we'll see the damage. It's so awful. His ears are so cute. But, he's getting lots of cuddles as you can see!
Blogies next.....I pwomise!
