Wounded in Action

It's a great hike when Turbie finds a tennis ball on the trail. Proudly she prances around with the ball she found. She loves to put the ball at the edge of a ravine, give it a nudge and go barreling down after it. Remo has no interest in running down the steep ravine after a ball. He has better things to do.

I never heard a peep out of Turbie, but I'm guessing she went flying over a branch that maybe caught hold of her. When we got home from our muddy hike, I put the dogs in the shower. When I was drying Turbie I noticed some blood on the towel and I found the wound...another trip to pet emergency in San Rafael. It seems as though everything happens after our vets office closes for the day.

Turbie's wound wasn't too bad, it just required a few staples and some antibiotics. She was back in action the next day, but has to wear a t-shirt until she gets the staples removed.


  1. oh no- poor girl! She looks adorable in her custom T-shirt, even the color is good on her :) Hope she's back to 100% soon.

  2. Turbie is so much like Chloe and her balls. She loves finding them and self entertains by tossing them over the banks and retrieving.

    Chloe chased Bailey through the open space a couple weeks ago and ran into a section of barbed wire that sliced open her face around her right eye. She was lucky but never really slowed down as we continued our walk for another hour.

    These are tough red hunting dogs.
