Rory's Foot.

Hi Everybuddy.  My brother has been bad.  Real bad.
He ate his foot again during the night.   Dad got up for work at 3.00 am and found blood, more blood and oh it was horrible.
Mum is very sad.

As you can see, Rory feels bad and sad now himself. 
(That is not blood on his bandage, that is a plastic bag over the bandage cause he had been outside).

I feel sad and am a bit scared of his cone of shame.

I'm not going anywhere near it.  I'd rather sleep on the cold floor.

Mum and sissy took Rory for a cuppa and scones after the Vet visit.  Rory knocked mum's cream all over the floor with his cone of shame. 

The vet said 15 days of antibiotics, 10 days of pain relief, constant bandage changes (which mum can do herself) and of course the dreaded cone.  Rory has such a huge head and long neck we're not sure the cone will work properly.  We shall see.
Keep Rory in your thoughts mates.
And mum, cause she just feels sad.
We can cope with the wonky leg.  That's fine.   It's the bloomin' nail business that makes us worry.
Sorry this is a miserable post.
No worries, and love, Stella and Rory


  1. OH NOES!!! Oh Rory, dude, sorry abouts your footie!! Oh man, you must have given your Peeps quite the fright with all the bloods!! Peeps freak when they see bloods, just ask my Ma.
    Oh, and sorry bouts the cone-o-shame...I, myself, have to wear a collar to keep me from lickin' my rash. It's no funs. Butts BRAVO on knockin' stuffs off the table! That'll teach em'! hehehehe
    I am sendin' tons of POTP to you, and LOTS of healin' vibes and some AireZens for your Moms (they can be sensitive, ya know?)
    Ruby ♥

  2. Oh Rory, dude! Please don't eat your paw! Blood just freaks the humans out. Lots and lots of POTP coming your way. And love to your mum.

  3. Oh dear. Poor Rory and poor mum. It's one of those times when one wishes it really was possible to explain to one's beloved dog exactly why he has a cone and how you really are doing what's best for him.
    Sending healing hugs to you both.
    Cheers, Gail.

  4. Hi Rory,

    My first comment disappeared so I'll try again. I'm sorry you have to wear the cone of shame, but it freaks our humans out when we start chewing and de-furring ourselves, especially when they see blood. I'm wearing my cone (although I like to think of it as my halo as it frames my face nicely and makes for some interesting head photos) now, as I've been licking my rear end and tail (which is where I get hot spots).

    In the second to last photo it looks like your cone is too small (my first one had that much nose showing so I had to have cardboard taped around it until the vet ordered in a larger size). I'm guessing you already have the biggest one, so here is a thought. I know you are a really good dog, so this may sound weird, especially as you don't need this for the usual reason, but has your family considered (just for when they can't watch you) getting you a wire framed muzzle like greyhounds wear. It would be easier to move around both Stella and your house, you could drink water from a bowl, and your family could sleep at night knowing you couldn't get your teeth or tongue around your foot.

    Anyway whatever you do mate I hope you are feeling better soon and that your humans find why your paw is so tasty to you.

    Love and woofs,

  5. Message for Rory, if you're listening via your satellite dish..LEAVE YOUR FOOT ALONE. Please get better soon as your sis, your folks and all of Blogville are so worried about you. (((Hugs to your Mum)))

  6. We have to echo Eileen. Leave that foot alone. Your poor mum, having to change that dressing, having to worry....and losing her cream. Sheesh!

    Surely that foot has to improve SOON!

  11. Oh Stella - poor Rory! I feel so bad!! :-( I haven't had a chance to visit recently and was so sad to read this when I arrived here just now. But don't apologise - you shouldn't have to just post happy things all the time. It's good to be able to share with friends.

    There's not much I can do but I'm thinking of Rory and wishing him better soon! I can remember how much Honey used to hate the "Cone of Shame" - it used to make her really depressed. (It also used to drive me a bit mad coz she would drool so much that it was always smeared with her dried drool...eeuuggh! And it used to crash into the side of doorways and then she'd get stuck and not dare walk through...

    Anyway, I hope Rory's food heals quickly and doesn't bother him anymore - and he can stop wearing the Cone of Shame!


  12. Dear Rory, We hope you can get this resolved big buddy. Maybe Mom can put something nasty tasting on your foot to discourage you.
    pug hugs to you and your mom
    Mr. Bailey, Hazel & Greta

  13. Oh Rory - that was such a silly thing to do. It sounds like you might have some nerve damabe in that foot and that is what is causing you to gnaw on it...but dude - your own paw IS NOT a lamb shank. You need that foot for walking around you know !

  14. Oh Rory!! Mom better buy you a boot to go over that bandage
    Lily & Edward

  15. Oh, Rory! I agree with Lily and Edward! You need a boot to keep you away from that foot. Good luck to you and Mum in getting you healed up right.

    xoxo Marjie

  16. Oh no! You need to heal, Rory! We're sending tons of healing vibes and AireZen your way! You've gotta heal, buddy!

    Love ya lots♥

  18. We are so sorry to hear Rory is having troubles. We know it breaks your heart.

  19. Crikey Stella ..... poor Rory AND poor Mom. Lots of love and hugs heading your way from downunder. I think the greyhound muzzle could possibly be a good idea for at night. More comfortable than the cone but I don't know. Just sounded like a good idea to maybe try.
    I'm so sad for Rory too Stella .... it must be bothering him a lot if he keeps chewing it. Don't be scared of the cone though. You'll get used to it. Just thank goodness you don't have to wear one too.

  20. Oh my, poor Stella you are worried for your poor brother. Rory mate, you must be confused and dear Carol must be beside herself.
    Let's all collectively wish this foot better!!
    A foot prayer every day I say!
    -woof- -pat-

  21. Hi Rory, Riley had a good idea - a muzzle at night might be a good idea. It's not perfect but at least it might be more comfortable than a big cone and you could drink too. Thank your mom for not showing the blood - my dad still a bit traumatized. Also "vet wrap" for your foot might be good too. Vet wrap only sticks to itself and you can get it from the vet.

  22. We know all too well how sometimes the news can't be all good and fun. So we are sending healing vibes to your corner of the world that the foot feels better, and that the cone becomes less scary! Take care, okay?

  23. Rory, we are sending you love and POTP. You really are having a rough time of it and we just hope that you will be able to resist the temptation of nibbling that bothersome paw.
    Wally & Sammy

  24. Oh Rory so sorry to hear about your troubles :-( Hope things start to get a lot better for you - sending hugs to you and your Mum and healing thoughts from us all - woofs and licks - Magic & family xxx
