Chronicling the life of Clayton, Spenser and Scooter

February 3, 2005

With determination and enough spare time, you can accomplish anything.

Spenser had a large benign lump removed from his paw last week. He took the e-collar off immediately and next went for the bandage. PVC pipe, duct tape, and a steel hose clamp made a fool-proof cast for 7 days at which point Spenser ("call me Houdini") removed the entire contraption as well as the remaining stitches. Fortunately the incision had healed and the vet agreed to let the paw remain unbandaged. He also suggested that Phillip ("call me Rube Goldberg") apply for a patent on his invention.
