    Default Wilson's eye booboo

    Wilson decided he wanted to get into a fight with Jack last night and he lost. Wilson has triggers and in the right condition they will fight every single time. I caused this one last night though. Jack was chewing on a new nylabone and I went over to him and sat with him near the kitchen (it was about 10pm and we were all having a good time chatting and drinking a bit). So then Wilson and Emma both come over and what do I do? STUPID!!!! I take the bone to avoid any fights and instead of just keeping it I toss it about 4 feet away. Well Jack turned to go get it and Wilson was right there.......a BIG fight broke out. Jack tried to get away and stopped when we we're yelling at them, but Wilson..... he's too gamey and will not stop until pulled away . He got bit between his eyes but you can't see that since it's all cleaned up, and he has a nice puncture wound on his inner eyelid. He's poor face was covered in dried blood this morning when I wiped him off again.

    I was 100% the reason that caused the main trigger that causes them to fight, excitement and a toy. ****slaps self on the head****

    I thought I'd share this just so people can see how easily eye injuries can happen to Bulldogs....luckily he'll be ok.

    Ouch!!! Don't be so hard on yourself Jeannie, you know the triggers but they are the ones fighting. So it is never "your fault". Hope it heals fast

    I'm not being too hard on myself, but it was a DOHHH moment. I didn't even think about it, I just tossed it and it was game on....but we at least know the triggers.

    Our neighbor Larry asked how do you see the triggers, he's been here a few times when they've fought. I said, I just know, it's in his body language and facial expression.

    Oh Jeannie, don't feel so bad. Your a good mama. Yes, bully eyes do get it easy, Uni's had the same one injured twice! From fights! Darn BULLdogs!
    In order to really enjoy a dog, one doesn't merely try to train him to be semi human. The point of it is to open oneself to the possibility of becoming partly a dog.

    Ack..doesn't look pretty, but glad it's not serious.
    You know, it happens. We can't be constantly aware of every little thing we do 24/7. Sometimes, we screw up. Good thing is, it's usually not serious .

    Aww poor Wilson. Looks ouchy, but don't feel bad accidents happen, and he will heal up fine. Just some normal sibling rivalry. My two have 2 of every toy, and they will always tussle and bite on each other for the same toy. Over the counter Polysporin drops or ointment will heal that right up. Give Wilson hugs and kisses for his boo boo, and I hope it heals quickly. And I'm sure Jack feels sorry, he didn't mean to hurt his brother. Give him a hug from me too.
    LEARN A LESSON FROM YOUR DOG, NO MATTER WHAT LIFE BRINGS YOU, KICK SOME GRASS OVER THAT AND MOVE ON.

    Oh that bully 'never give up' tenacity, so glad Jack obeyed & it got stopped
    before serious damage happened.

    Dear Jeannie...life happens, sadly we can't control everything all the time.

    You do a great job w/all your babies, forgive yourself & move forward.

    Kiss that stubborn Wilson for me and Emma & Jack too!


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.

    He's a hard one to pin dow to put eye gel in. So much so it was impossible even with Mike helping. He's a bit pussy but it doesn't seem to be bothering him if I leave it alone. He has his harness on too now.

    Awwww Wilson baby! He will be better before you know it. Don't beat yourself up, stuff happens!
    You can close your eyes to things you don't want to see,
    but you can't close your heart to the things you don't want to feel.

    Live Genuinely
