Grunts groans and moans 2014

Post by Helen on Wed 21 May 2014, 9:43 pm

Yes it's May and we forgot to start of a new groans thread back in January  affraid 

I'm moaning and want to rant ........... Dogs.

My poochie is pathetically soft and very laid back as the people who've met him will know, you don't even know we have him with us unless you come over and see him lay there. Anyhow to cut a long story short around 3 years ago we were camping ...... yep with the Dandy and at the time to stop kids bothering the dog we just put windbreaks around ..... he is very fluffy and is like a magnet to kids wanting to stroke him which we don't mind but not constantly all weekend whilst the parents are at the other end of the site.    Cutting that long story short is a doomed ambition now  What a Face 

Bailey ...... our Shetland sheepdog stuck his head under the windbreak ..... just because he's nosy, he loves to just stick his head and two front paws out whilst his back end remains under the windbreaks ...... and that's how he was when someone's dog bit his neck whilst he was watching the world go by.  He ended up with an infection which needed treating and eventually a small cyst type thing formed which needed treating ....... 18 months ago it needed attention and today the damn thing exploded leaving my poor dog in a right old state ..... he has been admitted whilst they decide what to do next.

So to the stupid people who had their really annoying barking all day long dog on a washing line so long it even went across the site road so the dog stopped anyone walking around that end of the site and then had the cheek to tell me to put my dog on a lead or leave it in a boiling hot Dandy following the attack (his neck was injured Doh!) .......  you're TOTAL MORONS. Your nasty dog went for Bailey several times even when he was going for his walk on a short lead and yours could because you couldn't control it and then you think it's okay to stick your dog on a washing line so you can say it's on a lead ....... no it isn't there are stakes with longer plastic type leads that don't tangle the dogs legs and are fit for purpose available for a few quid. We decided not to use windbreaks to keep the dog out of sight following that Easter weekend and he now lie's quietly just looking at the world go by bothering no one.

and to the other dogs owners ~May the fleas of a thousand camels infest your armpits amongst other places Twisted Evil

deep breath and relax  What a Face

We didn't think anything more would come of small puncture wounds Caz and although we bathed it we didn't take him to the vet initially until approx 11 days post bite (puncture wounds looked to have healed fine) but it turned out there was quite a bit of infection under the skin that had 'pocketed' lower down his neck and under all that fluff we couldn't see it. That ended up being lanced to drain it and then he got what the vet said was a cyst at the actual bite site that would probably be fine and it would be better to leave it alone. 18 months later it erupted and was aspirated and treated with antibiotics and although it looked a bit nasty as there was a hole it healed fast and the vet said it may never happen again.
We really should have taken him straight to an emergency vet to have it looked at the minute he was bitten and charged the other people for the visit but we didn't anticipate just what sort of chain reaction could happen.

We went to Fron Farm last year http://www.fronfarmcaravanpark.co.uk/ and he has a notice up that any dog not on a lead will be rounded up and the owner will have to pay a £5 release fee ........ I thought it was a brilliant idea and there were no dogs running riot on that site.

what a traumatic time and bless it must have upset the site owner and thats good

but will say to anyone that comes accross the problem with a dog attack go to the vets asap and get the owners details
hiccups do happen to nice owners but they would offer straight away it's the ones that Helen has come across harms the rest of us in the end
so glad Bailey is better    his fur most probably saved him from more damage
