An adventure in looking after a puppy until it is old enough to be properly trained as a guide dog for the blind.

The Big Snip - Part IV
I suppose the saga is pretty much over but anyway. I was thinking about taking a photo of the afflicted area but it really does look too awful for a blog. It’s the Betadine that was spread on the incision that makes it look as bad as it does, I think, and they shaved the area too so it just seems worse than it is. In spite of what they said at kennels, he seems to be paying his wound no attention at all. He even did his ablutions this morning and didn’t go past washing the important part.

Instead, here is a photo of his face where the other dog gnawed on him a little. Some scabs formed and when they fell off, so did the hair.
cheek boo boo
So now he has a bald spot on his face along with the other thing. Poor guy! At least he is not vain. He may admire himself in the mirror but this bald spot doesn’t seem to bother him in the least. I know it will grow back and you don’t see it much when you look at him face-on. Let’s hope this will be the most he ever has to endure.
