Puppy had an unfortunate accident today which resulted in the door slamming shut on the end of her tail and getting it caught in the door jam with a shut door. Horrible, right?
It happened while we were coming in to the house with our arms full of groceries and puppy came running over to greet us like she always does. Unfortunately, she didn’t clear the door in time and my hands were full and couldn’t catch the door. The door slammed shut and Puppy yelped so loud. She then pulled out her tail, ripping off the skin and hair and blood went everywhere. I’m sure the tail is broken as it looks crocked as well. It was very upsetting and I just feel awful.
Puppy in now at the vet hospital overnight. They are going to shave her tail to see what can be done. If nothing works, they’ll have to amputate part of her tail. I really hope this doesn’t happen. I seriously feel so, so bad for her. I can’t even imagine the pain she must be in but she’s been very brave. We go back tomorrow morning to check on her and see what happens. Wish us luck and that Puppy’s tail can stay. I can’t even begin to explain how sad we are all tonight. Our house feels so empty without her smiling face. I wouldn’t be surprised if I burst out in tears tomorrow at the vet.
