    Default Bre Back From the Vet (Caution, Surgical Photos in this Thread)

    My poor sweet Bre came home late this morning. Her bites from Sookie were worse than even I thought they looked upon first inspection. The vet had to surgically go in and insert a drain because there was a lot of tissue damage under the skin. So she has a drain under her chin and one behind her ear that comes out in 5 days. She also has sutures all over her neck.
    So now she is on antibiotics and rimadyl for pain and ordered to take it easy. She is such a sweetheart. She isn't growley or anything even though we can tell she is hurting (even with the rimadyl I'm sure there is breakthrough pain). I sat down next to her and she just licked my hand on tucked her head in to go to sleep.

    Now we have to figure out what we do with Sookie from here. Jordan is thinking that a home with no other dogs might be best for her but I am skeptical. When you "rehome" a pet you can never guarentee that the next owner will be responsible no matter how well you screen them. Bleh...

    The photos below were taken this evening. If you have an easily upset stomach you may not want to view them as there is dried blood and you can see the drain under her chin.

    Bre will be okay...she really is a tough old gal. I do hate seeing her hurt though...I can tell she feels cruddy.

    The sad part will be deciding what to do with Sookie. Jordan has had her since she was a puppy and I think I this is leading up to a tearful goodbye for him. He loves her but he knows that her alpha tendancies are too much for her and for my bullies. Tank knows to stay out of her way but then again she has never had a problem with him...I think it's a female thing!
    He said she needs a person who can exercise her more too...and I totally agree with that part. She's a malamute/husky and needs to get out there and have a good run at least daily. Ever since he got sick he hadn't been able to tend to her as much and I didn't have the extra time either because I had to work extra to hold down the household monetary-wise.
    It's a bummer though...

    I know this is going to be hard on you all! I hope all goes well and everything works out for you and your family! You all did everything that you could but sometimes when a dog wants alpha with other dogs in the home it does become an issue and Im so sorry it happend to you! I pray everyday that I never have a problem but you never know...We train and expect certain behaivor but sometimes things happen! I just hope everything gets better for you both and all works out well!

    I am so sorry you and Bre have had to go through this! You have had so much to deal with lately! I will be thinking of you and praying for a speedy recovery. Just remember "this, too, shall pass."

    oh my hon that is so sad. im glad it was not worse for bre shes had such a hard time but one thing about dogs is they recover very well and adapt so she will be fine. just hard watching them hurt i know. as far as the other dog its sad when things like this happen and you have a tough decision for sure. i was faced with giving sarah up when she put my boston who is at the bridge now in the er hospital for the weekend. i told her she was going to have to go and gave her this long speech as i was crying. well she was not an angel after that but she was good enough we could keep her. i am praying for your family in whatever you decide to do.

    Oh my goodness, poor Bre!!! I missed what happened, so sorry! Wow that has to be a very hard decision. A better one for Sookie though. I had friends that had the same type of dog, except she was a sweetie pie. They rehomed her a year or so ago and I was disappointed at first in them. It wasn't until later did I understand that it was really the best for their dog - they just didn't give him the time he needed. I had the a similar problem with Ace (my snugglebun) toward his end before we led him to peace to Rainbow Bridge. He did not like Jack and all and would only tolerate him for moments at a time. Most the time I always had to be on guard because he was going after him and not in a good way. It was horrible to watch. We made the BEST decision for him as will you two for Sookie! My heart goes out to you all and Bre.
