I broke the dog…

So I took the dogs on a walk in the woods and was very busy thinking about my book when Cali bounded out of the woods, blood EVERYWHERE. I panicked and very carefully searched her. She had a hole in her ear. That was it, a perfect little hole like she’d ripped out her earring, which had bled like … well, like she’d been involved in a murder crime scene.

She wasn’t bothered in the least that she looked like something out of a horror flick. We rushed home and I cleaned all the blood off of her and she was happy as could be.

With a hole in her ear.

Later, I get the family snapchat pic from Youngest to her sisters:

Sigh. There are no secrets in this family…

  1. You and your family are sooooo funny. Thank you for the chuckle today; I needed it! ๐Ÿ˜†

  2. Kids! I am happy to hear Cali is ok & doesn’t seem bothered she has a hole in her ear. You may never find out what happened.

    Take care. Enjoy your day.

  3. So happy the fur-kid is okay, but I have to say I would have freaked if that had been my Lacey (a golden retriever pup about the same age as your lab).

    Will she be wearing earrings now? ๐Ÿ˜†

  4. We had a black lab years ago. One day after having gone for a walk in the woods on a trail where there was a lot of running and jumping in through the bush we noticed blood on her chest and that she was licking the spot. On further examination she had a gash/hole. At some point during our walk she had stabbed herself with a branch. There was no yelping or whimpering either when she did it or later. Off we went to the vet to have it cleaned and to get some antibiotics (it was quite deep).

  5. First, you have a great family (including the furbabies). I’m sure you’re proud and happy.

    B. Poor Cali! I can’t imagine what could have done that! Glad she’s okay. Now she can be a pirate for Halloween.

  6. Poor baby. Wonder what she ran into to tear her ear like that. Nice when the kids have your back!! Lol

  7. That just happened me. My daughter told me comes Molly(my fur baby) was bleeding so we check she had cut her club toe so I know how you feel.

  8. It’s a dog’s life to torture their humans.
    Your big holiday family dinners must be a riot with all these stories!

  9. Well, I think Cali broke herself but please hug her for me! Your family is a riot. Take care and watch for bears when you are walking!!

  10. Poor Cali!! Could she have been biten by something? I think there are no secrets in most family. At least in my family too.

  11. Oh my poor little dog .They get injured and most times they don’t care while us humans panic

  12. Aww…poor Cali! In Youngest’s defense…I think the bleeding hole in Cali’s ear would not have gone unnoticed for very long. Just sayin’. ๐Ÿ™‚

    You don’t deserve that – fur babies have a unique ability to find trouble. She likely chased a critter into a bush, and got a branch through the ear for her trouble! :unsure:
