Tales (Or Tails) of a Suburban Dog

A week or so ago Todd was cutting Sookie's nails when she jerked her left front paw and he clipped her dewclaw. It bled quite a bit, but he was able to get it staunched. Pretty soon she went outside to play, running around and just being her usual puppyish self. Unfortunately she started bleeding again and this time we couldn't get it stopped. So we took her to the vet and made it with just minutes to spare before after hours emergency fees. They took her in the back and she came out with her pretty little green-wrapped foot.

When we brought her home Todd sprayed the wrapping with bitter apple spray so she wouldn't chew on it. She loathes that stuff and does a little hyper freak out when she smells it, but she doesn't chew on whatever is sprayed.

The next morning when we took it off she was as good as new AND she had forgiven Todd!


Do you know what this is?

Or this?

I'll tell you what it is. It's tiger slipper guts! Poor little tiger slipper was totally eviscerated by our vicious, stuffing-hungry hound.

That's what Taylor gets for leaving his door open.


Last year we had a cute little brown bunny living under our shed. This year that cute little brown bunny is a cute big brown bunny and it likes to taunt Sookie. She goes absolutely nuts because she can see the bunny sitting in front of the shed but she can't get to it. The way she barks and carries on with her hackles raised to attention you'd think it's the killer rabbit from Monty Python and the Holy Grail. (Run away! Run away!) Or maybe a rogue cottontail from Night of the Lepus.
