An Update on Bo the Brave

October 1, 2008

Bo seems to be making a full recovery from the Brown Recluse bite he received in late August. Here is a letter from his owners…………

“Yeah….he can be a BIG baby!  He whines while the girls run the cold water on his leg in the bath tub.   He puts his head on their shoulder and just whines…then he whines when they have him lay down to put bandages on.  It is cute.
Oh…one time I was having Justice, my 3 year old, help pick up the front yard.  There was a stuffed animal in the yard and I told Justice to go get the little elephant as I didn’t want it outside.  Bo knew exactly what I was saying because he went over, got the stuffed animal and brought it and dropped it at my feet…HE IS VERY SMART!!!
When it was hot out he would come in and immediately go to where the air came out.
He is a sweet dog!
The flesh on his leg is almost completely covered w/ skin now, we are almost done with the bandaging!
Feel free to make another blog post.
He is funny because we had his balls put up for a long time because he couldn’t play sooo….he would bring us his water bowl, a toy of the kids..ANYTHING for us to throw..ha!
I’ll get a pic of what his leg looks like now.

The leg with the spider bite about two weeks after the incident. Healthy pink flesh! These guys did a GREAT job tending to Bo. Washing his wound and bandaging it every day.

Here is Bo with his e-collar…………to make sure he didn’t chew on his leg.

Our dog friends sure know how to milk us for pampering after being hurt! 🙂 Here is Bo basking in front of the cool air vent.
