He had some kind of cyst on his leg that finally burst but he just can't seem to stop licking it! We finally took him to the vet who gave us a medication to put on it 3 times a day along with some bitter apple which is "supposed" to taste horrible and therefore stop good 'ol Toby....I say "supposed" because the bassett hound in him didn't get the memo and he's still licking!
Luckily (though he might look at it as Un-luckily) we have one of those "Cones of Shame" from a prior surgery one of the fur-kids had so I just popped it on him. Doesn't he look happy?!
Daisy and Guinness are both concerned about him now. Well mostly Guinness...Daisy is kind of freaked out about the whole thing and is staying as far away from him as possible....maybe she thinks whatever he has is catching.
Guiness on the other hand has been going up to him and giving him little kitty kisses. Doesn't he look like he's telling him not to worry, it's going to be all right?
It's funny, but Toby was really the most gentle dog when we first found the G-Pup at 8 weeks old. He was the most loving and nuturing surrogate Dad I had ever seen...Daisy on the other hand is pure squirrel and couldn't calm down or be trusted...she is much better now though.
I think that Guinness really loves Toby and it's nice to see that when Toby is hurting, Guinness is there to kiss him and make him feel better.
I've been watching and the G-Pup keeps going up to Toby and grooming him and using his paws to pet his nose...with that kind of attention things can only get better for Toby.
I'm hoping that his leg will heal sooner than later so that we can remove that horrible cone, but for right now it's really the best thing for him.
That's about it for now, but whenever you start feeling bad about something, just think of Toby and thank YOUR lucky stars you don't have to wear a cone!
