Dexter Update

Thank you all so much for your well-wishes!

Dexter is fine now… he’s hanging out under the coffee table chewing on the ginormous bone I gave him as a get well peasant. They removed the offending claw and while he was under gave him a full mani/pedi. He doesn’t have to wear a cone thing (although those things are hilarious!) which I’m thinking is a pretty good sign. So yeah – the poor guy’s pretty out of it and his little legs are all shaky (doggie drugs must be really good stuff) but he’ll be fine.

Seriously why do they even have a dew claw?

  1. Oh, He is so CUTE!!! I love terriers, they are all big dogs regardless of what they weigh. Glad things went well - it's always scary when they are anesthetized.

    guinness came to us sans dew claws but dublin still has hers...all they do is create something for them to hurt and one more stinkin nail to trim, i swear!

  5. Trivia you have no interest in knowing: In lure coursing/sighthound events, dogs with their dewclaws intact win more often than dogs with dewclaws removed. Better traction? I don't know. I also don't know why I even know that. Why would a terrier still have dewclaws? To really dig in when going after rodents?

    I'm glad D-Man is A-OK. :)

  7. Glad Dexter is doing well! My cats have dewclaws and I never thought about why! Good question! Some hold-over from back in their ancestry when they descended from wild beasts!

  9. LOL that bone is as big as him! And look how he is chomping away at it. And the red gives an evil glimmer in his eyes. I would not mess with him while he's got that bone. =)
    He sure deserves it. Poor little guy. I am glad to hear he is doing better.

  11. Yay! Dexter! I'm glad to hear you're feeling better buddy! Nice bone! I have no clue about the dewy claw either.. it must be like wisdom teeth for humans.. we don't know why..but they are just there. If I wished for extra parts it would be spare boobs and and extra pair of hands. LOL Have a good one!
