As a kid, I was sometimes told that I had a very thin skin - I'd get pissy at the drop of a hat ...
Now I'm a bit older and I have very thin skin ... Avalanche will jump on my lap (front paws) and sometimes hits my arm instead ... sharp claws, thin skin, instant blood! (and I know that he doesn't intend to draw blood, and it doesn't really hurt but sheesh, I've got so much blood to spare!)

Hope that hand heals up quickly ...

The antibiotic is helping.  Less red, less heat and less sore.  More swelling.  Apparently, I not only have cellulitis but lymphangitis...and did you know there is a lymph node on the outer side of the elbow. Epo something.  Which thankfully is not involved.  I knew something was up when I showed him the hand and lower arm and he made me take my shirt off outside, lifted my arm and started palpating everything.

Weird.  The wound itself looks fine.

Thank you Amy! I may let Kohdi get away with murder but I'm not lying when I say he is really one of the best behaved huskies ever. Like any husky, he just gets too excited sometimes.

Hope your hand gets better!!!

Glad to hear that your hand is feeling better. I'm not sure about having a doctor in the family, it's either a good thing or it would drive me up a wall ... "Here, let me take a look at that!"

We did it!!!

Traveled 6 hours in the PawRunner with Z'ev tethered in the back separated by Ami behind the front seats. Z'ev was a champ. As was Ami. One very funny moment...Z'ev got excited about something, forgot what, and started to try and climb over the stuff separating him and Ami, Ami sat up, gave one firm "Ruff" and Z'ev promptly lay back down followed by Ami who went back to sleep.

I've got too much crap to do but will later post how great everything went with the 2 dogs.

Aw, Amy, that bear was just thinking about lunch .... okay, that was form the other thread, sorry.

Dog to dog:
Ami: "What's your problem, behave!"
Z'ev: "Oops, right, ma'am!!"

So I promised a more detailed report of Z'ev and his progress.

As most of you know, I was really anxious about getting the two dogs in the car together - fortunately, camping, whether 2 nights or 20, requires lots of equipment. The PawRunner has a cargo cover that mounts just under the windows and a roller shade like thing that pulls out. I didn't use the shade thing but left the whole thing in place and packed the two camp chairs, tent and pillows underneath, covered the whole thing with a moving blanket that protects the bottom of the tent from Ami's nails, then leaned Z'ev's crate against the whole mess leaving enough room over the top for rear view mirror visibility. Essentially, it formed a crate for Z'ev. I then used a harness on Z'ev and tethered him to the rear cargo hold-down. With this set-up, he traveled beautifully...until we stopped and when I opened the rear hatch, he bolted out and suspended himself hanging from the tether. Took both Wayne and I supporting him, to find the snap buried under his belly to rescue the poor pup...which he patiently allowed us to do. No snapping, growling...just a worried expression while we untangled him.

That's the travel news. What was really so wonderful was how the two walked together, we met my sister with her little terrier mix ball of wool and he just sniffed noses. While we were cooking in the pavilion, the two dogs spontaneously lay about 2 ft away from each other and went to sleep. At the campfire, Z'ev curled up on one side of my chair and Ami stretched out behind. On walks, the tangled their leashes, bumped into each other and often walked side by side brushing shoulders, bumping butts. Very occasionally, while tethered to the picnic table, if Ami would come a bit too close, Z'ev would give a low warning growl, nothing significant and Ami would back away.

At home, Z'ev wants to guard the water bowls...I have one for him and one for Ami about 10 ft apart in the kitchen. When we got home, Ami went immediately to his water bowl, Z'ev started to lunge, all I needed was a verbal "eh eh" and a step on the leash and he immediately stepped back and went to his mat. That is HUGE.

Last night, both dogs were quietly sleeping, Wayne had gone up to the garage, came back and rang the doorbell. Both dogs leaped up, ran to the door, side by side, tails wagging...my jaw dropped, Wayne's eyes were huge. I had grabbed the remote but nothing was needed.

And, finally...there have been several occasions in the last few days where I got Ami leashed up and attached to my waist, approached Z'ev and he greeted us with "woo woo woo" and once, even, when both were tethered, Ami was a-woo'in about something and Z'ev returned the "woo"

I am thrilled.

Now...if he would just stop with the biting. Knock on wood, the hand is healed. I finished the antibiotic yesterday, Wayne examined the hand and all the downstream lymph nodes, everything appears fine.

Camping is a bonding experience. Get everyone out in the world and off each others 'territory' where the new is more interesting than old spats and the status quo and amazing things can happen. Glad it all went well and no set backs to be had. If anything you got more movement forward. Good call on taking them.

There is light at the end of this tunnel! Everything sounds great! Maybe just some changes in scenery once in awhile can speed up the process a bit. So glad you took this trip with them and that everything went so well Smile
