Chronicling the life of Clayton, Spenser and Scooter.

"Humiliation, thy name is Spenser."

  On Sunday the 20th, Spenser escaped into the woods behind our house, and came back a few minutes later with a 4" flap of skin hanging from his chest. We suspect he ran into some barbed wire. He required 15 staples to close the wound. (He also had a skin tag removed from his belly while he was under sedation). The wound is healing nicely, but Spenser is not a happy beagle. He has to wear a towel around his head in order to keep him from pulling off the dressing. This works as well as an Elizabethan collar, and allows him to fit through the doggy door. The staples will be removed next Saturday. Poor Mr. Man!
