Meet Dr. Curad...


I have to share this story about Junior... or I guess about my husband...


If you read earlier this week about my Silky Terrier, Junior and his "d.a." parents, well the whole e-collar about killed us putting it on him. Soooooooooo, since my husband thinks, and this is the honest truth, that band-aids heal everything, he(a.k.a. Dr. Curad) decides to put a band-aid over the wound because "Junior won't be able to lick it and it will heal faster". Now, in the back of my mind, I'm thinking that the vet would have done that if the band-aid had these mystical powers.


Friday am at 6:30 I am looking at Junior's surgical site. Uh huh, it has now opened below the 2 staples. I yell for Dr. Curad and here he comes thinking there is a fire or something. I say, GET THIS BAND-AID OFF OF HIM. I AM TAKING HIM BACK TO THE VET and they will probably have me arrested for practicing medicine on this dog without a license.


Dr. Curad now tells me that he can't get it off. It's stuck because these are the new and improved ones. So we cut it down the middle and now my poor puppy has this band-aid dangling and off to the vet I go...


The vet looks at his wound, decides since he is already on antibiotics, it is probably okay. I quickly explained the band-aid - she looked at me - smiled - and said ... we have some stuff to get it off with... My poor Junior ... As I leave the vet for the 3rd time in a week, I look at the receptionist lady and say ... at this point, it's a parenting issue...
On the knitting front.... More Duet sock yarns arrived and are flying off the shelves. Check them out today ... Oh yeah, I have almost finished my J-Knits socks - one with heel flap and one with short row. So far I believe I like short row best...

They really do ok with those collars on them. We've had a couple of dogs that needed to wear them for various reasons. They just look pitiful, and in our house they have to endure the dumb "Hey, your lamp's running away!" jokes. :)

Mom,

Even with a collar like that on, Junior is still cute. When is his other ear going to pop up? Love you.
