I have already told you about the boxer pup who makes himself at home in our house whenever he gets the chance. I also mentioned the other two dogs. They are brothers--I call them Big Guy and Little Guy. I told James that I would love to have Little Guy (I'd love them both, but we barely have room for us and Cubbie, let alone even one more dog).
Anyway, early this afternoon I took Cubbie out to go potty and to get some air. We noticed Little Guy sleeping by the area where Cubbie is sometimes tied out. He rolled over on his back when we got near. I noticed that he had a bad gash under his leg, right where his leg joins his body. It is pretty bad--I could see muscle. I went over and told his owner about it. He said (or at least implied--I can't remember) that he would take care of it. Not long after that a friend came by and he left. He told me that his niece is supposed to take him, but she still hasn't.
A little while ago I decided that I needed to do something. Both Big Guy and Little Guy were over at our neighbors' house lying near their dogs. When they saw me they came to see me, Little Guy limping. I picked him up (he's pretty heavy for a "Little Guy!" lol) and brought him in the house. I put him in James's chair, where I hoped he would settle in, and planned to clean his wound and put something on it. His tail never stopped wagging! He stayed in the chair while I took a few pictures of him, and while Cubbie ministered to his wound a little. Then I turned the TV back on (I had paused it while I was out getting him). It scared him to death and he jumped out of the chair! I don't think he has ever been in a house before.
Cubbie licked his wounds a little more, and then the nut (remember Cubbie is young--a year and a month) tried to mount Little Guy. Two problems here Cubbie! Little Guy is a boy, and Little Guy's head isn't exactly the right end! Sheesh!
Everyone has settled in now--Cubbie is asleep in James's chair, and Little Guy is asleep on the floor near him. I'm going to wait until he is rested and more used to being in here to look at his wound.
You would love Little Guy. He is so timid and sweet--he has kind of a Stan Laurel-ish quality about him.
I honestly don't know if I will be able to leave him in the house once he wakes up and gets all peppy, since he may end up chewing stuff. We lost a lot of stuff when we got Cubbie and he went through that stage. But I will see how it goes.
