Full Version: Bruce Has Hurt Himself
Dogpages forums > General forums > The Chatter Room...
We had workmen round this morning and I asked the lady supervisor to hold Bruce's lead while I had to go upstairs to tell them where my sockets have to go but then someone opened the door so Bruce made a lunge for the stairs to get to mummy. I yelled at him to stop (his back legs are too wobbly for stairs because of his epilepsy tablets) and he stopped where he was but before I could get to him, he fell back down the three steps and ripped a nail out.

It looks very sore and he's very sorry for himself. We're off to the vets this afternoon.

Poor Brucie.... err.gif

hi all, sorry for the delay in updating, have been staring mindlessly staring at the tv while cuddling Bruce. He's fine. He went nuts when the taxi pulled up (he rarely goes in a car and when he does it's either the vets, which he loves,or going on holiday so he goes spare when he sees a car pull up) and during the kerfuffle, the nail fell off. When we got to the vet, he said that was good news as it could have been a sedation job to remove it but as things stood, he just cleaned it and dispensed antibiotics and Bruce came home with us - on the bus! Bruce was a brave soldier and let the vet hold his paw and clean it and pull him about and had a general check up and didn't make a murmur apart from the odd whingy noise at us wub.gif

He's very tired and sorry for himself but he's safe and well at home and that's all that maters. Thanks for your support,

Aww Bruce what a super brave boy you were!! wub.gif wub.gif (are you sure you are a proper GSD? unsure.gif lol.gif )
lol.gif tongue.gif yeah he's a proper GSD, he just got more show off genes than wimp genes! He was cuddling me so much that the owners of all the small fluffy dogs were cooing at HIM for being such a mummy's boy tho..... wub.gif
