Be careful pt. 2

Postby go get the bird » Mon Sep 16, 2013 3:48 pm

I'd like to remind all of those afield to watch for barb wire fences. My gal got a Little slice on one this weekend from a wire hidden in the grass. I only noticed it after she'd been back in her kennel licking at her leg. She made no sound, and kept on running like nothing happened.

I was fortunate, it could have been her belly or face.

Keep an eye out fellas.

Oh gosh, you're sooo irresponsible Go-Bird :lol3: :devil:

B.S. aside-
Vegetation over many years can completely engulf those old fence posts and wire. Can definately spoil a dogs' weekend if he tangles in it with some momentum behind him :eek:

Glad pup will be ok :smile:

Dogs are tough, they don't give up their injuries easy. I deal with this a lot while upland hunting, I always keep a razor, medical tape, styptic powder and super glue in the truck.

You must be a dog hater to allow your dogs to hunt in a field with barbed wire fences. :nana:

Hope she heals up quickly -- the hunt season is upon us, brother. :beer:

they are tuff!!! Had one run a stick through his chest couple months back!! Nice hole, hanging piece of skin... Just running around like nothing happened Took to vet, put him under, got him home... Never once acted like anything was wrong.. Never once licked it I kept him out of training for a week and he was pissed at me!!!!!!!!!!!

I initially felt that the term 'murderer' was a bit harsh ..... but if this so called fence was encountered on an especially warm day, go get the bird is a MONSTER!

My older dog did the same thing! Stick went in the side of his chest and out behind his leg. He made one little yelp but kept running and acted like nothing was wrong.

Amazing what they can handle. While phez hunting, at the end of a field my lab laid down and started rolling in the snow. When he got up there was a huge puddle of red bloody snow, he acted normal. Had a 1/2" hole where his leg creased while running, 4" of a stick was broke off inside.
