Tar and Abby

Tar's turn....

No, he didn't get skunked but when I let him out this morning he started yelping, crying, whining, shaking and would not touch his food.
OFF TO THE VET! (They recently opened a second location - I think we financed it.)
They poked and prodded him and could not find anything specific. Could be a cracked nail from Dog Next Door Encounters (they scratch the fence at each other). Could be his congenital boo-boo on his knee. Could be emotional fallout from Abby getting skunked. He's on drugs. Abby, btw, is tip-top and still stinky so gets another bath today.
I think there is a skunk under the shed - digging marks, dog attention there recently and the skunking happened there. The Engineer thinks not. So..... I expect if there is a skunk it will take another late night skunking to convince him.
Stay tuned.

we think it happened about 10.30pm in all the excitement of Abby being skunked. He has had good and bad moments all day. We'll see how he does tomorrow.

That ain't good. I hope he gets better. Soon their will be a chain of those vet clinics if you keep this up.
