Took Hans back to the vet Monday had her check out the lump again, it had grown, did another laser treatment, without opening it up or needles to drain it. I felt that was the conservative way to go. Some times the more you fuss with something the worse it gets. Last night it was going down. It slid off to his side, hopeful that it will dissipate, and we can get back to hunting.  Be three weeks this coming Friday that it happen. Hard to slow him down, it doesn't seen to hurt him. That guys been snake bite,can't seen to keep him healthy!!!!

This guy just can't get a break, first day out after a month off with what the wife and I call the lump. We went out in the grass lands to see if we could find some Huns and Sharpies. Weathers been so nice. Took Emma as well, made a big loop didn't see a thing but very nice day, we had just kicked up a cotton tail, was crossing over the top end of a small coulee, Hans locked up on a small Juniper bush 10 feet in front of me, I was thinking another rabbit, he drove in and and I SYN a porky and a month full of quills!!!!!!!!:sad::sad::sad::sad::sad: We were over a mile from the truck, town was 45 miles, he was going crazy, more in the roof of his month then outside, none in his eyes thank God. I got out what I could then headed back. We went to Columbus first nearest town, vet was out. Next town headed west Big Timber, All Creatures vet. Doctor was in and he inducted himself as Kurt. Nice guy, went right back I assisted, he tranquilized Hans, and we pulled quills for two hours, the tough ones were the ones he had broke off. Lost count how many. What a day, but he charged me just 106.00, theirs something to be said about livening rural and small town life. Got home home feed him, this am no swelling eating like normal.:thumbs::thumbs::thumbs::thumbs::thumbs::thumbs:

Good grief! You really deserve a break. So does Hans!

(Only good thing out of it: Hans won't be so eager to close with a porkie again.)

Well it never stops we're just getting settled in the new home and yesterday the wife was working out in the garage the dogs were nosing around and guess who found a box of rat poison under the steps. Hans, so out came the peroxide, it took alot to get him cleaned out, he had eaten the whole dam box, gave some to Emma as well their always side by side and we had to be sure. he is OK this am just so thankful the wife was around to see it happen, and I was close.!!!!!:sofa:

We checked the rest of the house and yard, the folks that lived here before had both a dog and cat.

That was close! I hope you got it all. You should know by now. Jack got into some a coupla years ago but I saw him eating it in time and dosed him up and he's was fine. No side-effects. I hope the same for you!

mtman, You realize that he'll be grown up soon and your woes will slow down. Most any bird dog is still a pup until they are 3 years old. I know that's the case with labs for sure. RD

RD I sure hope so, PM it was real close, the new vet checked him out yesterday, did blood work and it was fine, gave him something to settle his stomach, and some chewable Vitamin K its the anti for that brand of rat poison. but what a start to the new week. Hans turns 3 the 24 of May, he's been thru a lot in three years!!!! :sofa:
