Presenting my new boy Mr. Haute Couture at Riverwood aka J-P Gaultier

Since our local television visted us to film a portrait of the Irish Setter, Scott thinks he's a star and has all the caprice of a starlet; Last Sunday Scott wanted to see if the grass was truly greener on the other side of the fence, and I don't know how, as our fence is rather solid and high. But pass to the neighbours he did;  Once I'd recuperated Scott I of course inspected him to see there was no damage, and I discovered a huge hole on his side where he'd ripped a large piece of skin leaving visible meat and muscle, it didn't seem to worry him at all, apparently no pain.  Not so easy to find a vet on a Sunday but we were sent to the Vet 'on call' and he immediately took care of Scott. He was sedated and the sewing process could begin. Part of the skin, 5mm, had to be cut off and then some 5 stitches inside and 11 stitches on the outside to sew it all up.  So we now have a new boy, less 5mm of skin;

Scott's injury to the vet


Scott's just back home !

Scott will now stay at home, the time it takes for the hair to grow back, and he takes great advantage of the sofa and in being spoilt by 'Granny Catherine';

I just hope that the resulting spoiling by Granny doesn't tempt him into another go at the high jump,Charlotte!
