    Logan our 10 mo. old bassett's wrist has hurt him for over a week..
    Vet say the cartlege in his wrist has separated from the bone. He will wear the soft cast for 2 weeks and if the wrist does not heal, we have to take him to a specialist tofuse it..... poor little guy had puppy strangles when he was 9 weeks old and was sick for 2 mo. He's been through a lot in his short life.

    Thanks, he's a good little guy (45 lbs.) just a little spoiled from when he was so sick. I kept him wrapped in a towel and held him all the time. Did you see the pug, Josie, in the back ground. She's my real baby.

    You know, I had a cat once who got sick at a very young age and almost died. She ended up THRIVING and lived a long, happy life~!

    He's so pretty! Our dog is half bassett. She has the short wrinkly legs and feet of a bassett but the rest of her looks like a lab. Hope he starts feeling better soon. I just can't get over how pretty he is. He looks like he's taking to recovery well though.

    So how much stuff did Loki get into? :)

    Reminds me of a story of a couple who had a black lab. The entire neighborhood told them the dog was getting out. They could not figure out how as when they came back home, he was in the fence happy as a clam. Apparently they put up a video camera somewhere and saw him sneaking out and covering up his evidence, and then sneak back in.

    Dogs name, Loki

    lol

    He is crazy cute! I love bassetts! They are so beautiful! Hugs and cuddles and treats and kisses go a long way in healing little furry-head's hurties! ;)

    I love your pets. SO glad the vet is taking care of him. I have a BLood hound and it takes a lot to wrap his poor foot and then he tears it off. So it healed normally...And the pug looks just like my mom's. So cute. Glad everyone's pets are thriving. Love the rabbit avatar too.

    Guess I should tell you about Josie, our pug. She was 1 yr.old, now age 6. We had doggie door that went into garage and another from garage to fenced in back yard. I was at work and DH calls says he took Josie to vet....why? what's wrong... he said " when I pulled into garage josie ran out into garage and I hit her with truck.....broke her hip...had to take her to Columbus for surgery..but had to wait until Mon. he not in on week ends...I had to carry her out to go potty...oh her pain was terrific..So she had the surgery on Mon., stays a few days at vets. We bring her home and two days later she is screaming in pain again. Had to waite again until Mon. to take her back...well the pin slipped out and had to redo surgery...no charge 2nd time. Needless to say we changed the doggie door.

    Poor guy! Hope the soft cast does the job! My mom had an American Eskimo puppy that fell off the deck and broke her leg in two places. She had to have pins put in her hind leg and wore a hard cast but her leg still didn't heal perfectly. Faced with another surgery, Mom just decided to let it be. That dog lived a very long and active life!
