More than I bargained for

I think it's pretty safe to assume that I got more adventure than I bargained for today.

Mommy and Daddy took me to PetSmart Day Camp today! I was so excited I almost forgot to give Mommy a kiss before I pushed the attendant through the door so I could get to the play room! Well, the kennel. It wasn't quite play time yet. See, that's when things started to get interesting, at play time.

The put me in the play room first, maybe because I got there first I don't know. Then they brought in another dog, a little smaller than me and a little redder. Well, apparently that dog didn't like me much because they attacked me. Yeah, I know! All I did was come up and say Hi in my pei-tastic way. The attendants got us separated in no time and I thought all was well with the world but then they did a spot check on me and noticed I was bleeding. So they took me for emergency stitches. Here's the after picture.

Six stitches went in there. I don't remember much about it, they gave me this funny stuff that made me sleepy. I heard that my Daddy called the vet - it wasn't my regular vet - and he could hear me barking in the background. All I wanted to do was let him know it wasn't my fault and that I was ok and they were overreacting. The vet didn't let me use the phone though. Darn it. I'm sure I could have snuffled something out if they had only handed me the phone!

So I didn't get much play time in today. I only got back to the PetSmart in time for Mommy and Daddy to pick me up. Sigh. We'll try again another day I guess.

Daddy says I have medicine to take, so I guess I'll have to be a good boy about that even though I hate taking medicine. I can tell that Mommy and Daddy were worried about me though. On a good note, I'll be getting oodles of cuddles. They're just going to have to be careful with my side. It's maybe a little bit ouchie. Just a little.

In other news, I saw that I got tagged for an award by Gaia and that Oorvi's Mercury got a pretty good looking pei clock going. I'm sorry guys, I'll look at those tomorrow. I think I've earned a nap today. Sniff ya later.

Hi Bolo,

I'm sorry to hear about the little skirmish you got into! I'd lay the blame fully on the other dog! An unprovoked attack...how uncouth and uncivilized! You were a noble and mature dog to let him off like that!

I am sure that you'll be fine soon:) We dogs have amazing self-healing powers!

Don't worry about the clock...it's going nowhere! You take your nap:)

Love and Licks,
