I Am Injured!!!

I have a battle injury. I was out guarding my yard this weekend and while making sure the squirrels stayed in their trees I hurt my footie!!

This is my pathetic look. I mean seriously, aren't you suppose to get extra breakfast when you are injured?? If you are my Mama the answer is NO...Leave it...and that is BILBO's. Sheesh...Bilbo isn't injured Mama.

I am trying not to chew on my footie...but sometimes I can't help it. Mama said something about going to the 
V-E-T later this morning because she doesn't know how to fix it and it doesn't seem to be getting any better.

There are squirrels ALL OVER my backyard....cause I can' get out to chase them!!

They are eating all the birdie food.....

AND...putting their dirty squirrel feeties ON MY BACKYARD!!!

...and I am stuck on the futon.....Hope that the V-E-T can help me feel better quick....

From the Mama: We are not sure what is going on with Miss Dory's foot. She doesn't like when we touch it, but let's us anyway...she isn't crying when we touch anything in particular. But she is not putting any pressure on it and is staying in her bed or on the floor and is not interested in going outside which is VERY against her nature. We will see what the vet says and keep you updated.

Oh no!! Did you step on one of the acorn landmines that those stupid squirrels put out?!? I'm calling all dogs to arms to fight the evil tree rats! They've gone TOO FAR!!

I hope you feel better soon! Crossing my paws for a speedy recovery!!

ScrapsofMe said...

Oh NO! A BATTLE injury! You need a purple heartie bandaid on yer tootsie. BLASTED Squirrels! I got a nailbed injury scrabbling after squirrelies myself. Had to wear that dang cone of humiliation till it healed. I had licked it so much it was infected. Be BRAVE at the vetties office. I am packing up my hunting supplies...new hunting t-shirt, squirrel catch bag, tiara, nail polish...and will be right over to dispatch those squirrelies for you while you are laid up. Is it just me or are there WAY more pesky squirrels than normal?


peesess...Momma should be giving your more foodies while you are hurt. That's why they call it comfort food, right?

Benny and Lily said...

Oh poor baby
Do you believe what the squirrleys are capable of. They should be shot!! We will keep all our paws crossed for you
Benny & Lily
Pee.S We just love your pathetic look.

Ruby and Penny said...

Oh no. We feel sad for you Dory. We hope your footy is feeling better soon so you can get those rodents.
Love Ruby & Penny

Tank said...

I have no idea who you are, but your paw must be very painful. Eat the blue kibble, not the red.

Remington said...

Oh no! Please let us know what you find out at the vet. Take care, my friend....

Martha and Bailey said...

Oh poor Dory, we are so sorry you have an ouchie paw!
We bet you hurt it seeing off those pesky squirrels.
We are not keen on the v_e_t!
That was supposed to by a hyphen but never mind!
Look after yourself little Dory and Dory's mama make sure you give little Dory extra treats!
We can be such bossy little bassets!
love and kisses
Martha and Bailey xx

Abby said...

Hi, Dory...

I hope the VET can fix your foot...

Don't worry about the squirrels...They will still be there when you feel better...

Get Better Soon!!!

Abby xxxooo

Gnomebody said...

Oh no, Dory! We hope your hannie feels better soon! We know about those nasty critters - they don't come into our yard anymore...they just sit up in the trees or on the roof of our house and laugh at us and drive us nuts (BOL!)with their teasing.

Can't Bilbo help you out with guard duty?

Poor Dory! Those squirrels are EVIL! I for one would likes to express my Most Deepest thanks for sacrificing the body to keep the world free of Squirrel Invaders. I bet the V.E.T. will fix you up and you'll be back on patrol in no times at all!

Wiggles & Wags,

Deborah said...

OMD, I hope you get outside soon. We will have none of those pesky squirrels running around!
I hope all goes well at the vet!

Fred said...

Poor Dory! Hope you are all better soon!

Santa and Minnie said...

Oh no, Dory, you got to get well soon, those squirrels are taking over your backyard!!

JD and Max said...

Oh Dory, we hope your owie is nothing serious! We wish we were there to be your personal bouncers and guard your backyard against those dasterdly squirrels whilst you're out of action. We'll be back to check up on how your owie is doing the second you post about it.... Healing schnauzer snuggles - JD and Max.

SquirrelQueen said...

Aw Dory, I'm sorry you have an injury. I hope the squirrels don't get too far out of control while you are recovering. I hope the vet can make you feel better soon.

Fiona, as typed by Dr. Liz said...

Those nasty squirrels just Don't Fight Fair! (And no extra breakfast?!? I think that you should talk to the Geneva Convention people about that - I think that those who are wounded in battle automatically get extra breakfast - it's in the Rules of Combat. Or something.) Keep us posted on what the V-E-T says - hopefully you'll be on the mend soon (and back on the front lines!)!

*kissey face*

PeeEss: Mom's been 'writing' all weekend - she's going to email your Mom when she's got something back from her editor and posted. Sheesh... Mom's been watching this dude with long blonde hair all weekend. I think he's a drag queen, myself! *grin*

Yoda & Brutus said...

Oh No!!! You have to get better soon - the squirrels can't win!!!

Hope you feel better soon Dory!

Pugs & Kisses,

Yoda & Brutus

The Devil Dog said...

Oh Dory, you poor thing. Please keep up updated on your injury. Do you need me to come help you chase the squirrels? I chase cats and birds, so I can certainly do squirrels. Let me know.
In the meantime, I suggest you stay on the sofa and let your mama wait on you paw and foot.


Madi and Mom said...

Dory yes you are supposed to get treats and comfort food when sick and THEY ARE TO BE SERVED TO YOU in your bed!!!
Please let us know how you are doing...we don't like our friends being sickly.
We are so sorry about the squirrels.
Madi and Mom

sandy said...

Sorry to hear about the foot, know what you mean about those squirrles. I have lots of squirrels and rabbits in my yard. They eat everything. When you're feeling better you come run and chase them all.


Kira The BeaWootiful said...

Woooos! It must have been those evil squirrels, first Tank has lost his memory, now this! I hope woo foot feels better soon, but I am now believing in a squirrel conspiracy theory....

Tucker said...

oh no! The ouchies are terrible. I hope you foot gets better soon. I hate to say this but the vet may shave your beautiful furs away on the foot to get a better look! Maybe you have a thorn or something in it?

I sure hope you get fixed up soon.

woof - Tucker

The Army of Four said...

Oh Dory! I sure hope your footy-foot is OK! Please let us know what the vet says!

Frankie Furter said...

Oh NO. Poor Dory. I think you might have squirrel germs on your footie. The VET will know how to get rid of them. YUCK!!!
In the meantime... you need FOOD and TREATS to prevent more infestation. Tell your mom!!!

Jazzi said...

Oh no Dory!! That is terrible, I hope the DR can fix it fast. The squirrels may be there for now but watch out when you are back! They have no idea what they are in for then.


♥♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥♥ said...

Poor Dory, you sure don't look too happy. Maybe you have a thorn or something stuck between your pads or a broken nail? Hope the vet can fix you all up so you can get back on squirrel patrol.

Woos - Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

houndstooth said...

Oh ouchie! Mom says we've had a few cracked pads before that were something like that! Hopefully it's nothing serious!


P.S. You didn't get some weird squirrel disease, did you?

Mack and Sally Ann said...

Oh Dory,
We hope your footie feels better. It is no fun to have a hurt foot. I think more treats are in order, so that you can feel better.
Sally Ann

Mango said...

Oh dear! I am so worried about you. Injury in battle. I think you get a medal for that.

Let us know what the vet says. Hopefully it includes words like pizza, steak, and cuddles.


Khyra The Siberian Husky And Sometimes Her Mom said...

I hope woo just bruised it to make your ouchie -

It so looks like your skhwirrel and my skhwirrel are one in the same when it khomes to sitting at the base of OUR trees!

Paws khrossed woo are feeling better!


Lorenza said...

What happened??
I hope the Vet found what is wrong with your leg!
Take care
Kisses and hugs

Samantha said...

You sure look totally adorable in those pix and especially that last, but we are so sorry your footsie is owwies. I sometimes limp a bit and Ma worries and then it goes away. I think we get "hitches in our getalongs" occasionally from doing so much exercise and turns and twists that like my booboos, get better with rest. I hope that's the case with you, dear one. Looking to hear about you!
Hugs xoxoxoxo

hero said...

Oh Dory... your adorable poor expression says it all, you're in no mood for squirrel war at this moment. Hope you'll have a speedy recovery.

Licks, hero

Chewy said...


I am so sorry that you are injured! : ( My momma got injured when she went to drill (my momma's in the army reserve) and broke her knee. Now she cant go to OCS (officer candidate school) till next year! But I digress....that is good because she spends more time with me and is bad because she walks really really slow and I cant chase those evil squirrels now!!
Well anyways i hope you feel better soon so you can tackle those squirrels!

Paws and Licks

Dear Ms Dory's foot. Please heal right now or your are going to the v-e-t's and we won't have any of that. Too many of our furiends are currently visiting the v-e-t's too often and you better spare our furiend. Hear me???
Kisses on your footsy Mona
