Sheepdog Injury

Roger with Belle
I am so glad that I wasn't there when Belle hurt herself. Apparently she chased a lamb that broke away from the mob, and in doing so she ran into a stick which stabbed her in the chest. Roger didn't think the injury was very serious, but he took her to the vet the next morning and had the wound cleaned and stitched. The vet put in a drain, which will have to be removed by Roger, and he'll also have to take out the stitches in a week or two.
Because I know you love photos of injuries (or is it just that I love taking them?) I took a photo for the blog.
