One day I saw a wound on Scotty’s side, and assumed that it was caused my wrestling with his brothers. Like a good doggy mom, I took him to the vet and found out that he had something under his skin!

A surgery later, the vet gave me the big sliver that they took out of him. We took him back 2 weeks later because the wound wasn’t healing. Rather than another expensive surgery, the vet decided to take him into the back, and gave him Lidocaine. The vet felt around and pulled out another sliver. This process was repeated two more times before the wound healed.

We never really figured out how he got the sliver in the first place,

Though, Scotty was so cute wearing the jammies to protect the wound from the other dogs.
