Guess what happened yesterday? Brudder Ranger’s butt exploded!!!!!!
Okay, mom says I’m being over dramatic. It didn’t REALLY explode BUTT (heehee!)…one of those glands on the side of his (as Frankie calls it) poop-shooter got infected. And it was SUPER gross and it was all bleedy and stuff. (Between you and me, it was kind of awesome-looking but I DID feel sorry for him cuz he didn’t feel good.)
So mom rushed him over to the V.E.T. and they gave him a butticure and some Auntie Biotics and some stuff to make his butt less hurty and then sent him home.
Anyway, mom felt sooooooo bad cuz Brudder Ranger has never had any problems with his poop-shooter and other than one or two butt scoots, he didn’t tell mom that it was hurting or anything. And the V.E.T. lady said that Brudder Ranger was one of those Stow-Ick Dogs, which I guess means that when they have an ick, they stow their feelings about it way down deep inside. I know this for a fact cuz I tried to ask him what all they did but he didn’t want to talk about it.
Most happily, Brudder Ranger is feeling MUCH better and his butt is getting back to normal. I’m real sorry that I didn’t have any real pictures BUTT (haha!) mom said that would just be gross. And she actually said that like it was a BAD thing. Can you believe it?
Note from Ranger: I agreed to let my sister blog about this deeply personal and rather embarrassing matter today as a reminder that extraordinarily brave dogs such as myself may not let on that they are in discomfort. Therefore, one must always be vigilant for the slightest behavioral changes for insight into your dogs’ health. It is my sincere hope that by allowing my story to be told, no other dog will have to endure the
horrors indecencies I did yesterday.
