The bad news is that the gash is infected and is oozing nasty stuff so Mommy will have to keep is wound clean. Aunt Susan called in some antibiotiks as well as pain medication for Sam so that should help lots. The good news is that Sammy is not acting hurt and the shivering and shaking has stopped so he is not in as much pain as before. He is still wanting to play and seems to be in good sprits. Thank you for your purrs and purryers - all of us really appreciate it. We are sorry that we are not getting around to all of our friends lately but Mommy has lots going on on top of the doggie illnesses. Please do not forget us pirates!!

Update on Samwise
We have an update on Samwise. Last night when Mommy got home she felt a lump on the very top of his head and realized that some of his head furrs were matted with what appeared to be dried blood. Further inspection showed a head injury so Mommy and Daddy called Aunt Susan. Aunt Susan had the beans give a sedative to Sammy with some drugs they had leftover from when Beau was hurt and needed sedation. After he was sleepy, they were able to clean his head and cut the furrs really short so they could see what was going on. Sammy has a boo-boo, a puncture like wound on the top of his head that is just the right size to have been made by one of Beaux's teeth. Yep, when the doggies got into their fight, Beaux bit Samwise very hard on the head and hurt him.
