Hopalong does good

I don't have a photo of Kizzie with her foot bandaged.  Brian was cutting her nails, I was shovelling treats in her mouth to take her mind off it.  I didn't shovel fast enough, Kizzie wriggled and Brian missed.  Loads of blood!!!  It wouldn't stop so we had a trip to see Sam, the nurse at our vets.  Kizzie was as good as gold and allowed Sam to inspect, cauterize and strap her foot.  And.... miss K kept the bandage on without trying to chew it.  What a good girl. 
The sad news was that we missed our first week of fun training.  We did good on Wednesday though and Hetty complimented us on a well behaved labradoodle.  I understand they are not always as focussed as my little darling.  Not that I claim the praise for Kizzie being such a greedy hog that she will do anything for food :)
The really bad news is that Kiz can't go walking until Monday.  We are keeping her busy with playing, training and doing puzzles, all for food of course.

  1. I'm so far behind on these posts with being so busy. Dog boarding always takes off in the June/July/August months.

    I'm really really pleased that you seem to be enjoying the experience with Hetty. Bad news about the paw though. All part and parcel of owning a live-wire Kizzie Whizz Bang I fear. :)

    Will pop back for a proper read later on! Hope you're all well and enjoying the sun.
