Hurley has proven himself to be the model patient following last weekend's toe injury. I was pretty concerned about all the pill-taking, bootie-wearing, cone shaming & bandage wrapping that would have to occur during his healing process but I shouldn't have been worried. Hurley Badger Don't Care 'bout nothing but his mama taking care of him and patiently allows all of the above to happen without a protest. I think he's just a giant baby who loves being babied by his mama.

The other hiccup to his recovery happened on Wednesday. Twas the first morning that I let Hurley out in the backyard to do his business and didn't actively watch him. Of course, this would be the one morning where he kicked the bootie off and proceeded to somehow re-injure his toe. Said injury produced 100 times the amount of blood as his initial injury. I could not get the bleeding to stop, freaked out about the puddles of blood all over my house and rushed him to the vet. It's a good thing because as the vet said in reference to the pool of blood filling his bootie "Oh wow. Just wow. That is not a normal amount of blood." When the Badger hurts himself, he certainly doesn't do it half-ass.
