I have been rather invisible since I last told you about little Tucker. However, I have good news! He is nearly mended! His wound
has was scabbed and down to the size of a pea last night. This morning he got to it and the scab is missing…
I’m telling you that little dog has OCLD!
That would be obsessive compulsive licking disorder. He simply doesn’t seem able to stop. (sigh)
What I couldn’t imagine was… How he could get to it at all!
He was outfitted in a cervical collar and a cone device. We started with the collar, and then tried the cone, and finally ended up putting on both. This worked for a bout a week, and then he found out how to get at it again!
Then I saw this: doggie Lederhosen!
Please click the doggie to be magically transported to the original photo at www.blogs.browardpalmbeach.com
Doggie Lederhosen were imagined for the little pup!
They were easily fashioned using my scissors and man-sized, white tube socks! Although, I will admit that it took several iterations and alterations to arrive at the two sock model shown here…
Now that he is well armored he’s miserable, as am I, but at least he is almost all healed, and I’m grateful for that!
Even if he is not.
