As I was typing in the last entry, Amber came in and said “Comet is bleeding everywhere!”. Sure enough, he was bleeding, and it was everywhere!
Earlier this evening Dasher was showing off in the backyard for me and Bryson by expressing his dominance over Comet. Comet zigged when he should have zagged and came away with a gash in his ear. It didn’t take long for him to stop bleeding, and I let them in to eat and for their routine lounging before bed.
So we just finished cleaning up 31 blood stains in the carpet. There were also splashes of blood on the hall walls, spots all over the kitchen floor, and a pool of blood near Comet’s food dish. I guess I should have known he would scratch his ear as soon as I let him in the house!
