Crikey ... I s'pose you think I've been having a good time. Well that couldn't be further from the truth. I'm here to tell you that since I've been missing in action I've had the WORST
So much has happened I'll have to do this in installments cause Mum is still mighty busy and me and my problems have only added to the stress. You'll NEVER
guess ... so I'll have to tell you .... I got a chunk taken out of me again. It's worse this time!! It's in a bad spot and I've got muscle damage. Wanna know what happened??? Of course you do!!!!! Dad was away working and it was raining in Paradise so Mum decided to take me to a leash free park instead of the beach. It's a great park and I've been there heaps of times before and I know most of the dogs.
|This is where it all happened.|
|It's even got a place to swim.|
|I should have stayed hidden behind this tree, aye?? I'm camouflaged. They'd have never found me here. |
|Spose they'd have got me from this angle. |
There are 2 German Shepherds that I have played with and ran with heaps of times before without any trouble. They are good blokes with good owners ... BUT
...... this day they ganged up on me. One of them was chasing me and the other one hung back and came at me, out of nowhere, and took a chunk out of me. I screamed. Everyone knew I was hurt. The two owners and Mum came up and calmed me down and Mum rushed me off to see Peter, the Vet. Yep ..... you guessed it ..... I spent the night in hospital after being knocked out and stitched up AGAIN!!!!!!!!
|It was a real deep wound. AND in a bad spot. Every time I stretch it hurts. |
|This was the next day. I couldn't stay awake. My Sorry Ass looked after me. Thanks Goose!!! I know you were looking down on me too, aye??|
|Crikey I was tired!!|
|Well its better than those plastic things and it did the job. I couldn't get at that wound no matter how hard I tried. AND try I did!! |
|It was lookin' pretty good here.|
Dad got back the next day and he went and saw the two blokes to see if they would help with the Vet bill (it was VERY
substantial). Would you believe they both blamed the other bloke's dog. Mum couldn't say which one it was that did the biting, as to her, all GSD's look the same. Dad suggested that they each pay a third of the bill and they both said that was a very fair decision and agreed so at least this time we didn't have to pay the whole bill. We had to leave for Sydney just before the stitches came out (Nan's crook again) so I had to go to another Vet to have the stitches out and guess what???? I hadn't healed up real good. They took the stitches out and I was VERY
brave but then ...... they had to put some staples in. Three of them!!!!!!!! Fair dinkum ....... THREE!!!!!!!!!
They got the first one in without much of a fuss. Mum was feeding me dried chicken treats ....... they got the second one in ....... with a little bit of a fuss. I was positively inhaling chicken treats. They got the third one in ...... fair dinkum ..... I was outta there. There was NO WAY
they were going to do that again!!!!!!! Mum nearly passed out. She's as big a wuss as I am. I've gotta have them out in four days time. Yeah ...... like that's going to happen!!!!!!
|Not lookin so good now, aye?? AND get a load of those staple thingoes. How would you like those in you???? I don't like em ... not even a little bit. |
In the middle of all that we had Miss G's birthday. I had a lousy day. I went but I had to stay in my crate. I did get to watch all the action but there's no fun in that, aye? AND
Miss Poppy PooPoo pants got to eat all the left over cake and I didn't get any ICECREAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I HAD A LOUSY DAY!!!!!!!!
I'll show you all the birthday pics in the next installment. IF
I'm still alive!!
Wanna run (I can't) ........ Love, Charlie.
Oh Charlie, we are so very sorry that you got so badly hurt. That's why our Mom won't take us to dog parks. We are glad that those two owners were at least willing to pay something toward your care. Now let's hope this time you heal well and quickly. Hugs.ReplyDelete
Woos - Ciara and Lightning
Yeah ..... well I've probably been to my LAST dog park too. Mum's going to be too scared to let me off the lead from now on. Woe is me!!!!Delete
Eeeew Charlie, those staples! I hope you heal up nicely. Some dogs just shouldn't be permitted to walk around unleashed. Mom was so angry on the beach the other day when a beeeeg dog threatened me - I thought she'd take a bite out of the human.ReplyDelete
I think there's a lot of humans that NEED to be bitten, aye?? Those staples are awful!!Delete
OMD, dat looks painful!ReplyDelete
And no ice cream? What da woof? Dat are addin insult to injury - ya deserves a whole half gallon of ice cream.
I do Whitley ..... I do ...... A whole half gallon. I'm gunna make sure Mum reads your comment. Do you think I could demand chocolate chip icecream????Delete
Oh dear Charlie, you have been in the wars again. I know all about how dogs who are usually nice and have good owners can one day behave our of character and suddenly you're at the vet and having stitches. I must say Charlie, I didn't like the look of those staples. I showed the picture to Gail and you know what she said? "Pah Bertie that's nothing! Just three staples? When I was in my thirties I had to have a rather obscure operation and ended up with 52 (yes FIFTY TWO) staples holding together my thigh. When I was discharged from hospital, they gave me a staple extractor, just like the ones you get in offices really, and told me to take it along to the GP when it was time to have the staples out. So two weeks later the GP takes the staple extractor out of the package, looks puzzled, admits he's never used one before, then asks Gail if there and any bits of the wound still numb through nerve damage he can use for practice …"ReplyDelete
Hope you heal quick mate!
PS We nearly didn't get past the dog in running shorts.
Crikey Bertie ...... Gail had 52 staples and the Doctor had to practise on numb bits to learn how to take them out??????? OMD...... poor Gail. Did she ever recover????? I'm scared Bertie ..... real scared!! Thanks for thinking of me.Delete
OMD Charlie! That was a horrible thing to happen. (Can't believe the owners wouldn't donate SOMETHING to the bill.) We'll keep our paws crossed that it heals quickly, so you can get out and run! (Oh, and also, so you get some ice cream.)ReplyDelete
Hope your nan improves....
It's been a tough week and it's not over yet. The other owners are going to help with the bill though. They agreed to split it 3 ways. It means we have to pay a third but that's better than paying for the whole lot, aye??Delete
I hope I get some icecream too. I deserve it, aye??
Ach Du Liebe:((ReplyDelete
Please just stay on your nice beaches from now on...
Well, at least the bitey pups owners helped out with the $$ part.
I hope you heal up now that those staples are holding things together...
I hope and pawray that your Nan will get better, too.
Hey! Maybe you will let the vet take them out for the price of a big bowl of delis ice cream! Try it!!
That was supposed to be delicious ...BOL!Delete
Mum reckons there'll be no more dog parks for me. Maybe on a lead but where's the fun in that. I'll still go to the beach but I'll only be allowed to run with dogs I know and Mum trusts. I sure hope I get some icecream soon. I'm on a promise again so it will happen. It just takes Mum a bit of time to get round to these things. I know it will be delis ice when it does happen, aye?? Stupid computers.Delete
OMD, you have had the lousiest time, Charlie! We are so very sorry this had to happen to you and we are sending you TONS of AireZen and healing vibes! And then no birthday cake and no ice cream. This is so not fair!ReplyDelete
Love ya lots♥
Mitch and Molly
It most certainly hasn't been the best time of my life, aye?? But it can only get better from here I guess. Thanks so much for the Airezens. They sure do help ..... a LOT ... and are very much appreciated.Delete
Charlie, maaaateee.. that is just horrifurs... there is no accounting for what happens when blokes you knew before suddenly gang up and 'turn'. So glad their peeps paid up though; vets are good but they know how to charge for being good too!!!
Sorry to hear your nan is not so good again. Sending lots of healing thoughts via ether for you, for mum (what a shock), for nana and let's include the world whilst we're here, eh? Yea, with you at that end, and me at this end, we could staple the globe with Love!!! &*>
The neck brace is a great idea and much prettier than the cone of shame...Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx
Thanks Aunty ..... Those healing vibes sure help. I like that you are sending them to the whole world. It sure can use all the help it can get at the moment. I don't know that we want to STAPLE it with anything though. Not even love. We'll just do our best WITHOUT those STAPLE things, aye??Delete
Nan is ok .... not good ..... but ok. Winter time is hard on old, old people. At least I can put a smile on her face.
The neck brace is GREAT. I had one of those horrible plastic cone things last time and it kept getting in the way but this one is soft and cosy.
Love (capital 'ell') MUST become a 'staple' [constant, regular, steady usage] of the world Charlie mate...'tis the only way out of the mess...
Extra strong vibes being included for Nan... Yxx
So very sorry this happened! At least the 2 GSD owners were willing to share some of the bill. I doubt that would happen here. I never go to dogparks as it all too often ends with what happened to you. I hope the healing continues.ReplyDelete
Thankyou!! I don't think I'll be going to dog parks EVER AGAIN!!!Delete
Oh Charley! Major Owwees! Please Try to take it easy so's yu can heal up.ReplyDelete
An' yu Need ice cream! My pawrents say it's medicinal!
Get Charley ice cream! Stat!
Ohhhhhhhhhh Zoe ..... thankyou. I'll make Mum read what you say about the icecream. Wanna flutter those eyelashes at me???? That'd sure make me feel a lot better. You've been awful quiet at your blog lately. A photo of your beautiful face would make everyone feel better.Delete
Dear sweet handsome Charlie this is just horrible and it makes my heart hurt to know that you were cornered and attacked by those GSD. WHAT IN THE WORLD.?‼️‼️ Your mum must have been terrified and bless your heat you were in shock to have been a victim ofthenasy attack. You are a brave matey and I am so glad you are healing. I am sending continues heckling kitty kisses to you and hugs to your peeps. I am also thankful the GSD owners agreed to help w the vet bills. They best keep a careful eye on their pups.ReplyDelete
Hugs Madi your bfffffffff
Purrs for you Nan too!ReplyDelete
Hugs Madi and mom
Please pardon all the typos in my first comment...of course I meant healing kitty kisses...why in the world did auto correct change healing to heckling!ReplyDelete
Crikey Madi ... you don't have to be pardoned for typos. That auto check thing comes up with some funny things sometimes, aye? I wonder what heckling kitty kisses are like!! I'll settle for the healing ones any day. Thankyou!!Delete
You sure were right about Mum. She was a right state but she holds it all together for me. I think, when she finally got home without me, it might have been a different story though. She only just managed to hold it together when they were putting those staple things in. When I got down off that silver table the Vet asked Mum if SHE was ok. She was shaking like a leaf and didn't look too good. I was VERY brave, however.
Nans doing ok thanks Madi. Winter is always hard on her. Her lungs are not too good but she's in very good hands so hopefully we'll get her through another winter. It means we are travelling to Sydney a lot but Mum feels she has to be here for her.
Oh no....I am so sorry this happened to you! I sure hope you heal up right my friend. And thank goodness those other blokes parents decided to help pay the vet bills. Stay well...ReplyDelete
Thanks Oz ..... I'll be ok. It's just taking a bit longer than we would have hoped for.Delete
Oh poor Charlie! We were so sad to hear that you got hurt. Phod says shame on the Shepherds. We are sending you POTP.ReplyDelete
Crikey.... thanks for the POTP. That's so nice of you. It's ok Phod .... I'm sure the Shepherds didn't mean to hurt me. They just got a bit carried away and I'm awful skinny and haven't got a double coat like most dogs. It doesn't take much to damage me.Delete
Charlie, I really feel so bad for you. Just seeing those pictures made me hurt too. We don't go to dog parks. Mom says its because I always want to show the other dogs who's boss. I just want you to heal up, get rid of those horrible, horrible looking staples and have a big dish of ice cream. I may just have to have some ice cream to make me feel better for you. Skittlez wouldn't even look at your pictures. She is just a wimp. My Mom is sending your Mom lots of hugs because she knows this is really hard for her too.ReplyDelete
Crikey Scooter ..... thanks so much!! I don't think I'll be doing dog parks in the future either. My Mum says to thank your Mom for the hugs. That was so nice of her. Mum sure needed some hugs. She was a right mess but held it all together for me. Did you get to have some icecream Scooter?? Crikey I love icecream. I still haven't had any but I'm on a promise. Better give some to Skittlez too, aye??Delete
Good grief Charlie! Don't you have the worst of luck? We're glad your doing OK now and are so sorry your were hurt and had to go through all that pain and misery. Remember our good friend Miss Charlee had a similar experience at a dog park. We're glad you got the other guys to help pay the vet bill. (The vet bill for Joey dog's tummy ache was $300!!!!) Joey and I and the whole family hope you and your family will be feeling better real soon.ReplyDelete
Crikey Chester and Joey I do remember your friend Miss Charlee but I didn't know she got hurt at a dog park. I don't think I'll be going to any more dog parks. So far the Vet bill for me stands at $870. And that's the truth. How funny is that?? Mum didn't realise until she typed this up for me that the bill was EIGHTY SEVEN with a nought on the end. $300 for a tummy ache is a lot of dollars, aye?? Mum says as long as we get better it doesn't really matter how much it costs but I'd rather have $870 worth of icecream myself. That'd make me better.Delete
G'Day Charlie..... OMD what a horrid thingy to have happened. We are super sorry and we Pray that the Staples hold you all back together so you can Heal and be back to having FUN again...ReplyDelete
We are glad that the folks decided it was fair to pay 1/3 each fur the bills..
SO SORRY Bout the NO ICE CREAM on the Birfday... THAT is SOOOO not fair.
No Worries No Worries...
No worries Frankie and Ernie. I'll be fine. Once I get those horrible staple things out I'll be running around again and having fun.Delete
How funny is this??? Mum just told Chester and Joey how much the Vet bill was and would you believe that so far it adds up to 870 dollars. That's fair dinkum too. $870. Bet you find that hard to believe, aye?? Mum didn't realise until she typed it up for Chester and Joey. Funny, aye??
Oh No Charlie! Gosh we are so sorry you got hurt again. Good thing the other owners are going to help with the bill. Mom is afraid of dog parks for that very reason, you just never know. We are sending some special pug POTP for youReplyDelete
and hope you get some Ice Cream
Mr Bailey, Hazel & Mabel
Thanks for the kind thoughts. I sure do appreciate it. My Mum's afraid of dog parks now too. I don't think I'll be visiting any again EVER!!!Delete
OMD Charlie! That looks so sore. We hope you heal quickly mate. Mom won't take us to the dog park because you never know what pups will do. You definitely need ice cream to aid the healing process! Hugs to you and your mom.ReplyDelete
Thanks so much. It's sure nice to know you are thinking of me. AND I'm sure I'll get that icecream soon. Mum's promised!!!!!Delete
Oh no, I'm so sorry this happened to you. I'm glad you're doing better, though. I've had those staples in me, so I know how you feel. Healing vibes coming your way!ReplyDelete
Crikey ..... not you too. They are awful aren't they?? Thanks for the healing vibes. They are much appreciated.Delete
Thank goodness you are okay my friend! That was sooo scary!.ReplyDelete

Hugs for Fast Healing!
Dory, Jakey, Arty & Bilbo
Charlie why would those GSDs do that to you, that is just not right taking a taste out of you. Apparently they don't know the rules of playing nice. Charlie you need that staple gun so if you see them again you could staple their mouths shut!ReplyDelete
Thanks for being a friend
Sweet William The Scot
Crikey sweet William ... What a good idea. Staple their mouths shut. That'd sure fix 'em, aye?ReplyDelete
I am so glad you have the staples out now those look painful :/ Glad ya'll got to split the bill. Mom says those dogter bills are gonna put her in the dog house BOL ;)ReplyDelete
Oh CHARLIE!!!!! How did I miss this tragedy?! Oh dude, Ma almost passed out from those pics!!!! I am so very sorry those doggies hurt you, I bets they didn't mean it. Butts that doesn't help the staple things, does it? AND, getting no IScream and cake!!! Okays, that's just not fair at all!!!! I thinks you need to have a gets well pawty when you are all healed up...with margaritas, of course! ☺ReplyDelete
Oh Charlie, I sure hopes you are feelin' betters now...you do look FABulous in your blue collar!
We had to see what happened. This must have been terrifying! We are so sorry but now we know you are getting better so that's good. We think that bill should be 50-50 with those other owners taking care of it!ReplyDelete
Murphy & Stanley
Oh CHARLIE!!!! Momma takes a few days off from blog reading and look what happens!!! I sure hope you're feeling better now!ReplyDelete
