I Have Been Wounded!

Last night it happened. I blame the squirrels you know! They must have had some kind of booby trap on the back door. I was just zooming in from going potty outside and the bottom of the door where it slides open reached up and grabbed me. My toe hurt so bad. I yelped and was bleeding and mommy was like oh no what did you do. She looked at it and my nail came off and was hanging by some skin. I was bleeding and yelping when she put pressure on it so she rushed me to the emergency vet around 11 pm last night. They cut the hanging part off, and then trimmed all my nails so short that mommy has never seen them ever this short. Mommy uses the safety cutters and had just trimmed them, but seriously I do think squirrels are to blame. I have been through that door thousands of times and not one owie. My brother Charlie wanted to go with me, but I made him stay behind and be on the alert for Squirrel attacks on the house. I know they were trying to get me away for some reason, but I just don't know what it is. Now, being layed up, my poor old brother has to do the squirrel patrols without me.








Well, I have to take these weird kibbles that the vet gave my mom. She shoves them down my throat, and I tells her I will take them fine just put them in some steak and cheese. But, she still does it her way. I get cheese or bread or a little peanut butter afterwards, and today. Mommy gave me a bite of tuna sandwich. I think I can get use to this special treatment. But, I still do wonder what the squirrels are up to now.


This blog was typed by my mommy and somethings just didn't translate well from dachshund to human.

Dear Sasha,
You work it girl! It helps if you give them the sad eyes and an occasional whimper and sigh (wink, wink, bark)...darn squirrels anyway!
Puppy kisses,

Sasha - So sorry to hear about your owie, but the special attention and treats aren't bad at all, eh? Thinking your Mom should take you to the dog bakery for some of the SPECIAL treats, you know the ones, with sprinkles and icing and mmmmmmmmm...

Hannah feels your pain Sasha! It must've been those dang squirrels alright. You would never have tripped on your own, too much of a diva for that! Lots of doxies kisses and tummy rubs coming your way. Wishing you a quick recovery with lots of treats :)

They tricked you is what they did. Distracted you just when you were running through.
Your red bootie is very cute though.
Feel better baby girl.

Beau says he hopes your little paw heals fast, although extra attention is nice too.

Sasha - The girls and the pug puppies have upped their squirrel patrol just in case the plot is spreading across the country. Thanks for the warning. We wish you all the best to get better soon.

Smoochie to the poochie. I hope your squirrel chasing can begin again soon.

A dachshund could get used to this nice treatment. In fact, a dachshund could get their human wrapped around their little hurt paw! Enjoy being served for a short time my friend! I'm sure Charlie will do double time for the squirrel patrol!

Linda said...

Dear Sasha, I have long nails, my Mum grinds them, little bit at a time, cos shes so scared, as once when she cut the tiniest slice off it bled. I know how much that must hurt, give your Mom the sad eyes look and I guarantee you get double treats. Love and Licks Prince xx

Aw, feel better soon! You do bring a certain cuteness to the whole cast thing, if that helps. :)
