The Cloud Dog

Jingle for my cloud dog, who is suffering under some rather unmulish circumstances today. Poor epileptic Paisley, who had passed a year since his last episode, suffered a grand mal seizure last night. The worst of it is that, during the course of his terrible incident, he fell down a flight of stairs. Paisley, who has a preexisting forelimb deformity due to an old injury, either sprained or broke his right front leg at the knee. It is hard to say which, since the joint was highly abnormal to begin with (he's missing his ulna). After considering the various complexities of the situation the vet and FarmWife have decided to wait a day or two for the swelling to go down before taking x-rays. Considering her wallet, FarmWife is rather hoping for a dramatic improvement before then!

Paisley is splinted, medicated, and resting. No immediate additional harm shall befall him, but surely some happy wishes would serve him well at this time.

Your friend,
Fenway Bartholomule

This old photo, though doing little for Paisley's dignity, serves to show the typical angle of his abnormal forelimb. 


  1. Hey, I call that an "eraser nose!" Perhaps too much attention to farmer Jones recent sickness? Well anyway, get better soon Paisley.

    It's always something...

  2. All my best wishes for a speedy and total recovery!

  3. Oh my - we are all praying for Paisley to be well very soon.

    Your fren,

  4. Feel better Paisley!

  5. I will be praying for Paisley!

  6. Aw, poor kid. How is he doing now? Better, I hope.


Thanks in Advance for Your Mulish Opinion!
