The Admiral has always had the privilege of playing outside. But over the weekend he came home with two large cactus thorns in the back of his leg. I thought I had successfully removed all prickers, but on Sunday my daughter came to me with my old iPhone (her new toy) and photo of our Admiral's Paw. One pricker which I had never seen was still stuck in the top of his Paw but this one looked bad. So off to the Vet we went. What I hoped would be a quick visit and a small fee turned into a Stay for the Admiral, Minor Surgery, and a WHOPPING bill. It will be a while before he's a back to 100%. For now the Admiral is confined to the Barracks!
