  • Miss Daisy had a small benign thing removed yesterday from her belly
  • Despite my best efforts and a $35 cone she has ripped her stitches out
  • My vet is in Iceland with my middle son at a friend's bachelor party
  • Don't ask

  • He told me that dogs in the wild have wounds and no stitches and not to worry
  • My niece who has done a term of nursing and is a genius says it is too open
  • We tried to close it ourselves with steri strips
  • Booked in to see someone else tomorrow
  • In the meantime I am in bed with a dog with an open wound who is trying to get at it
  • Stupid collar cone thing might as well be in Iceland for all the good it is doing me
  • So jumped out of bed and cut up some of the husband's underwear
  • He is out of town
  • Needs new ones anyway
  • Serged it down to Daisy width and sewed the inseam by hand while it was on her to get a good fit
  • Fruit of the loom dog shorts
  • Kneeling on my bed with a needle and thread
