Chronicling the life of Clayton and Spenser, with memories of Scooter

February 2, 2009


Spenser has gone just a little bit crazy. The effects of 2+ weeks of daily bandage changes at the vet, wearing the collar 23+ hours per day, and very little exercise has sent Mr. Man slightly over the edge. He doesn't want to sleep in bed with us at night, he prefers this laundry basket in the closet. He'll go outside and just stand and bark. He'll come back in, and just sit and bark. What we thought was his last day in the bandage was the beginning of who knows how much longer, because the wound got infected. So now it's twice daily antibiotics and more trips to the vet. When he is doing something he enjoys, like being out in the woods (we bundle up his leg so it can't get wet from the snow) or riding in the car, he is himself. But this is really wearing on him, as it is on us. Mr. Man, please get better soon!
