Boo boo ear

Roxy is an in-your-face kind of dog.  She thinks all dogs love her and want to have her hanging off their lips.
On our walk this evening she met one that didn't!
A foxy that didn't want to play and pounced on her, scratching her ear with his tooth.

 She left a trail of blood all the way home.
And on the carpet inside.
 It looks worse than it is.  The other side of her left ear has a long, deep scratch.
After cleaning her up, she shook her ears and started it bleeding again.  A quick trip to the VETs found it was closed.
 So SHE has put antiseptic cream on the cut, bound it up, and bound the ear to Roxy's head in hopes that it will be immobile.
Then we each--not HER, though--had a yoghurt bone to make Roxy feel better.
And now Roxy is trying to get Bella to play indoor wrestling....Sheesh!


  1. Oh no! And a foxy? One of my kind? I am so embarrassed for my breed and and sending healing licks and kisses all the way from Scotland.
    Hope it's better soon Roxy and there will be no septic business.
    Toodle pip!

  2. Awww no, poor Roxy. Glad it's not too serious.
    Happy that the yoghurt bones made Roxy feel better.
    Healing thoughts winging their way to her.

  3. oh my god! poor Roxy. Hope it's not as serious as it looks in the photo (all bloodied!). Please get HER to bring you to the dogtor tomorrow.


  4. Oh dear, what a boo-boo! Hope it gets better soon.

  5. get well soon roxy, and dont talk to strangers next time till youve asked your mum first :)

    Charlene and Stormy

  6. Oooh, we hope Roxy feels better soon! We think she'd get on very well with Trixie - she wants to play with everyone all the time, too! Roxy does look funny with one ear!

    Puppy kisses
    Sasha & Trixie

  7. Oh no - and you were only trying to be friendly! We hope your ear feels better soon, Roxy!

    Love ya lots,
    Mitch and Molly

  8. Sending healing paw and big love to Roxy. I once chased a fox and my peeps was frantic. We hope the wounds heal real quick. Take care Roxy. Have a terrific Thursday.
    Best wishes Molly

  9. Roxy! You poor thing. Ear injuries bleed so much (like I had to tell YOU that).

    A couple of years ago, I came home from work and discovered my white kitchen completely splattered with blood. Thankfully, my brother had called prior to my arrival to tell me that no one was murdered! One of the dogs got another, his ear was bleeding, and he kept shaking his head. My brother was calling from the vet's office...

    Get better soon so you can resume that happy wrestling!

  10. Nooooo. Say it isn't so. Roxy got hurt???? You rest up today and when you get a chance… stop on over and read my blog. I've got something there for you and your gang.

  11. Oh Roxy, you POOR thing. We are thinking of you. It's not very good at all when other four legged ones don't understand that we just want to play ..... Feel better soon Roxy!



  12. The ear bleeds so much really scarey... Do happy all is well

  13. Just popped by from Ranger's to say hello!
    Hope Roxy's ear heals soon xx

  14. That looks terrible ....being on white fur makes it look worse..but we hope it heals fast

  15. Poor Roxy, that looks awful! I sure hope you feel better soon and get one of those yogurt bones!

  16. OMD OMD the RUMBLE ... Foxy vs ROXY... and it looks as though Foxy won round ONE... butt Roxy won the Match because it ended with Yogurt Bones!!! Sorry that this happened to you Roxy.
    Now I have these very FASHIONABLE EAR WARMERS/PAWtectors... From GOOSE. Do you need fur me to send them to you???

  17. ooooooh! poor baby roxy! we hope you heal up fast!

    edgar & his mum

    pee.s. milk it for all it's worth, roxy. use those puppy dog eyes, maybe some whining...yogurt bones will be just the beginning!

  18. Roxy may learn that not all dogs are as friendly as her Scotties.

  19. Uh oh! Poor Roxy. We are sending get well soon wishes to you!

  20. OH NO! I am so sorry for Roxy! I always assume that dogs are my friend too and I've had my ear bleed a time or two. So sad.


  21. Roxy you had an encounter with a fox intent on piercing your ear!!
    I'm so sorry. Pardon my lack of knowledge of things Down Under. Do you all have a problem with rabies Down Under? I know there are places that don't have a rabies problem.

    Over here any wild mammal can have rabies which is why all our pets have to have rabies shots.

    I hope and purr your sweet little ear feels lots better very very soon.
    hugs Madi

  22. Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhh.. that looks nasty. Bad bad fella who bit you. You were only trying to be friendly... we know Roxy... but you be careful there next time ya.

    Hope you heal well... and SHE did a wonderful job with the bandage :)

  23. Oh no Roxy that looks very ouch :( Hope you feel better soon

  24. Hope her ear heals!! Sometimes I have a hard time remembering that not every dog wants to play too. It's ok.

  25. Ouch, ouch, ouch!! Ears bleed a lot. We know because Mom cut Bailey's ear once and it bled all over the place. Hope it heals quickly.

  26. OMD! Poor Roxy!! I'm so glad you okay, girl!! Rumble down under!!! I thinks you can start a fashion trend with that ear wrap! Or, you can head over to Frankie's and borrow their 'ear warmers'....they're quite the rage!!


  27. OMD Hope she feels better soon! There is nuffin' quite like shakin' your head and feeling your ears flop all over da place!

  28. Oh no, Roxy!!! You poor thing!! I'm a big fan of believing that all pups love and want to play with me, but unfortunately that isn't always true! I hope that your ear starts to feel better really quickly and that you too can have a yogurt treat soon! :-D

  29. Oh Roxy you poor baby. We hope your ear gets better. Gotta be careful of mean furry kids
    Benny & Lily

  30. Poor Roxy, bad foxy. Mom says the ear always bleed a lot for some reason. Hope the poor girl will be OK.

  31. Oh poor thing. Ears always bleed so much. Hopefully it heals soon.


  32. Roxy! That looks awesomely gruesome and as boys we must commend you on your toughness! Hopefully it heals up speedy quick so you can take the bandage off your head!

  33. Aww Roxy you poor girl. HOpe your ear gets better real soon. Sending you hugs and healing slobbers. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

  34. Do I see a cone in somedog's future? Poor Roxy. Mr. Fox is the same kinda dog - he can't understand why anyone would not adore him and want him biting and jumping in their face upon the first meeting.
    We hop you feel better very soon.
    Alyssa, Mr. Fox & Scruffy

  35. Oh! I hope the cone of shame doesn't have to come out!

  36. OH no I am so sorry. I hope it heals soon, I am sending hugs.

    Loveys Sasha

  37. Ouchie! Poor Roxy. But I bet all of you having yoghurt bones made her feel much better. And she does looks pretty stylish in her new headdress!

    Wiggles & Wags,

  38. Poor Roxy...hope your feeling better soon!!!! xoxoxo

  39. WOW Roxy that dog gave you a good boo boo. You should zig zag around that dog if you see it again. Hope you are better soon.
    Thanks for being a friend
    Sweet William The Scot

  40. Oh my goodness! How horrible. We hope you are feeling better real soon. I have a chunk outta my ear when I was attacked by another doxie. She took a nice bite outta me and I have to have surgery because part of my ear was hanging off. Now I've got a V shaped chunk missing. I know how you feel.

    Lily Belle

  41. Sorry Roxy....sometimes other doggies just get scared and think that they have to defend themselves. Hope your ear heals quickly and I bet that Foxy dog is feelin' sorry for her deed.

    Wyatt and Stanzie

  42. Oh no Roxie! Hope your ear feels better soon! Ear wounds are so hard to heal! Glad your ear is immobile, but I'm sure it feels a bit funny!

  43. Oh Roxy - I feel sorry for you having to wear that thing on your head..... why aren't you pulling it off like I would be????

    Heal soon girl!
