This is Tippy - as you can see, she is oh so elegant in her Elizabethan collar! Tippy's ear is bandaged here because she'd had an aural hematoma aspirated... yeah, yucky and very painful.

This photo is actually about 2.5 weeks old; she is doing much better now. The bandages are off, the collar is off and she is not digging at that ear like before. It has swelled up again, but the vet tells me that happens often in dogs who have this problem. Poor babies.

Glad she's better. She looks so pitiful in the pic ;-(

they can really make you feel guilty for taking care of them, can't they?

What a sad photo! I hope her ear heals completely, and soon!
