I just got Riley home. She has a pretty pink bandage on her right front paw. Her vet, Dr. Hall, said that new nail had started growing in already, so there wasn’t a lot of bleeding. The bandage can come off tomorrow. Riley’s still pretty doped up right now.
Dr. Hall said that they put Riley on a stretcher in the recovery area and that they usually put two leashes on them and that they didn’t because she was still pretty sedated. The vet tech was right beside her at the sink washing dishes and Dr. Hall was across the room typing on the computer with her back to Riley. Dr. Hall said she heard a tap-tap-tapping on the floor and that it didn’t really register with her. Then she saw Riley stumbling towards the door! Riley was trying to get out of there. She said Riley knows the way out and that she was making a break for it. Crazy girl!
Brooke (Riley’s bff at the vet) said she went and saw Riley before they sedated her and that she didn’t pee on the floor when she greeted her (she usually pees out of excitement when she sees Brooke). She did, however, pee two little drops when we were saying goodbye to Brooke on the way out the door. Some things never change. I told Brooke her record is unbroken!

Poor Riley. I hope she feels better soon. And the pink bandage is very appropriate today.
Glad she is home and all is well, but she sure looks doped up:) Hope you all have a restful night.Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara
Poor Riley, what a rough day. At least she gets a pretty bandage.
Poor Riley we are so sorry about your nail. We love the pink bandage. Callie girl had a pretty pink cast when she was small. We didn't even have her for one day and the boys broke her. She had to wear her pink cast for 4 weeks.. Yepper tell grandma it is quite exciting here in the Heeler den. Lots of excitement and the little girl usually starts it. Then the chase is on.. It is so hard to believe that 3 dogs can shed so much all year long. You would think they were all bald by now… Big Sloppy KissesGus, Louie and Callie
