Added to that, he is one of the most curious dogs I have even seen, and unfortunately, he checks things out with his mouth. Like I mentioned, normally we can keep it under control, but when we accidentally leave one of the doors of his crate open and he has eight hours of unsupervised time, there was bound to be some sort of damage. Reply Lisa on February 7, 2010 at 2:48 AM I'm so sorry, Michelle. I hope Cullen is feeling better soon. One of my friend's dogs does the same thing, chewing everything. She has chewed disposable razors, hair brushes, shampoo bottles. I wonder what makes some dogs do that? Reply Michelle on February 6, 2010 at 11:59 PM Thanks, Bellezza! I have not heard of that before but it is apt! I think it is going to be a while before he feels better, but I'll take out of danger right now! Reply dolcebellezza on February 6, 2010 at 11:30 PM Oh, I'm sorry to see your dear doggie in distress…he looks so sorrowful with his cone, and I'm hoping for all of your sakes that he feels better soon. (All Creatures Great And Small, The Lord God Made Them All~Do you know that from James Herriot's books?) Reply Michelle on February 6, 2010 at 11:03 PM Thanks, Diane! It means a lot to have everyone's support! Reply Diane on February 6, 2010 at 9:11 PM So sorry you all have to go though this worry. It's sad to see are furry companions suffering. Positive thoughts being sent your way Michele. Reply Michelle on February 6, 2010 at 4:58 PM Thanks, Ceri! He's the first dog I truly consider mine, which makes it even more difficult a situation, as I'm the one most affected by his absence. Hopefully, I'll get to bring my boy home tomorrow night and that his good health will mean a speedy recovery! Reply Ceri on February 6, 2010 at 4:34 PM Aww, poor little guy. It breaks my heart. People who've never had pets don't realise that they're more than just 'pets', they're part of the family. And it's so heartbreaking when they get poorly or sick. Thinking of you guys. xx Reply Michelle on February 6, 2010 at 2:48 PM Thanks, Jodie! So far, so good! He was slightly more alert when we went to see him today, although he was still on morphine. We may be able to bring him home tomorrow evening at the earliest. Reply Michelle on February 6, 2010 at 2:48 PM Thanks, Michelle! He's a boxer/German short-haired pointer mix…we think. We rescued him as a three-month old pup after he was abandoned in a co-worker's neighborhood. He has enough bones that we can keep the chewing at bay. The getting out of the crate was an accident since my son accidentally opened the second door, and my husband did not know it when he put Cullen in his house for the day. It is a mistake that will not happen again (even if we have to zip-tie or duct tape). Reply Jodie on February 6, 2010 at 1:08 PM Oh your poor dog. Hope he will be ok. Reply Michelle @ The True Book Addict on February 6, 2010 at 2:56 AM Oh, Michelle…I hope he pulls through with no further problems. Poor thing! What kind of dog is he? My kids really want a dog, but I'm so used to not having one now. My husband and I had a dog before we had kids (a cockapoo). After the kids were born, he really weirded out and attacked my older son when he was 18 mos. old. Luckily, Gabe only needed one stitch, but he has scarring in his hairline and upper forehead. We had to have poor Zach put down…it was very sad. I've gotten used to not having one. I'm really a cat person at heart anyway, but I do like dogs. I just don't think I could deal with a dog that chews all the time. I don't know how you do it! You must have the patience of a saint…LOL! Anyway, I will be thinking of you and your darling doggie. Hang in there. =O) Reply I read and respond to each and every comment, so please let me know what you are thinking! Cancel reply This site uses Akismet to reduce spam.
