it's been an eventful time for the doggies over here.
last week, pouncey was caught like a striped bass by a fly fishing hook in the ankle. he pounced across the river at the wrong time. the hook went through in two spots and i held him down while kevin removed it with pliers. pouncey did not growl or snarl for even one second. he squirmed and whimpered a little but for the most part laid still.
a couple days later the dogs came up from the river and there were bloody pawprints all over the house and deck. (which came right up with white vinegar). pouncey had somehow sliced his back paw open and was gushing profusely, every step he took. we gave him a rawhide chewy and some pain medicine/sedative and kept him in his crate for a day until it scabbed over.
his spirits were not diminished by either of these events.
in great news, nacho has stopped chewing, scratching, and licking! it's like a switch turned off this week. it also coincides with the grass mold level dipping from 'extreme' down to 'moderate' for the first time in months. here he is on his first hike since spring. he galloped and pranced around the fields like a puppy!
behold a new video from guadalajara joe - in which he impersonates freddie mercury. this is *NOT  somehow an attempt to prevent borat from playing mercury in a movie. so yeah!
* Borat is already not playing mercury, this is an attempt to have guadalajara joe play mercury, as queen searches for the right actor. so yeah!
