Poor Nico

Well, it has been a long time coming but Nico finally got kicked by Miss Soda Pop. He ran up behind her and tried to bite her on the back of her leg and she really let him have it. I originally thought she dislocated his shoulder just by the way he was holding it back and not putting weight on it at all. Thank goodness, I was wrong. She did slice his shoulder up pretty good though. It was about 2 inches long and about 3/4 of an inch was completly through the layers of skin down to the muscle. We cleaned it up and waited overnight to see how it would react. The next day, we decided he needed stitches and took him to the vet. Sure enough, he had to get 4 staples. They had to knock him out to do it so his recovery was pretty long. He was practically falling off the seat in the car on the ride home and he slept for hours once we were home. Well, this was definetly not something that made us laugh that day, however, it could have been SO MUCH WORSE! Thank goodness it was just a cut and not a broken leg, or worse. Poor Nico )-:
