Happy Tail

Skelly got some snuggle time in bed this morning, which he greatly deserved.

The poor pup has “happy tail” which is somewhat common in greyhounds. He got so excited about his full water bowl last week that he broke his tail when he whipped it against the kitchen cupboard with too much force. Because the skin broke, the bandage has to be changed every two to three days and a splint can’t be used. Of course, this makes it a little more difficult for the bones in his tail to heal. In some cases the tail never heals correctly, and a portion has to amputated. Lets hope that’s not the route we have to take! See his little green bandage?
