Simon is about 2 year old. I took him to the vet first thing this morning. His ear (or whats left of it) had to be amputated. It went from looks like it will be okay to really bad so quickly and it looks like he might have started chewing on his toe. What a mess! Poor thing. His health otherwise was okay eating, drinking, excercising. Didn't even bark once through this whole ordeal. I have to call the vets at 3:00 pm to see if he is ready to be picked up. One good thing that came out of this is that he is so much more attached and cuddly towards me. I walk into the room and he just stares at me waiting for my attention. Even my husband noticed it! I'll see if I can get some pictures when I bring home the little Frankenstein!
