Oreo went into the bushes looking like this.
And came out looking like this.
Fortunately nothing broken, but no long walks for him for a while.
Usually he sleeps on the bed, but he couldn’t jump so last night he made his bed inside a rifle case.
I did get a few bird pictures too.
Update : Oreo has made a miraculous recovery this morning. No idea what happened yesterday.
About twice a year, either one of our dogs or me looks like Oreo in that photo.
A small native tree, the Washington Hawthorn, has thorns of up to 1.5 inches.
I hope he gets better and can start taking walks again soon.
Tony u likely know this but doggy massages can work wonders on the sore joints but be gentle on the tiny limbs. My cavalier / cocker cross would hurt his right shoulder leaping off our deck chasing squirrels etc and the shoulder massages really seemed to speed the recovery.
Hope he’s all better soon. Could it have been a venomous critter or plant?
Tony, with all this running about for the little fellas..
I hope you are doing daily checks for things like ticks, seeds in pad of foot, ears etc.
Looks like he’s not going to let it slow him down. Great to see.
Hope Oreo stays healthy.
As we know, each year alarmists make a big song & dance about walrus haul outs as proof that ice is melting in summer. Here is Round Island. The walrus look exceptionally content, well fed and are relaxing as well as cleaning their skin on the pebble beach.
Glad he is ok. Took my dog on 2 hour walk today, really enjoyed it.
Love the bird photo’s too Tony.
