Bazzy's bent tail

Uh-oh.....I don't know how I did it, but my tail got all bent.

Mum and dad both had a poke around at it and moved it and stuff. It doesn't hurt me at all.

It just looks funny sticking out at 90 degrees. Mum thought it might be broken, but we went off to the vet and vet man says I have dislocated the joint at the tip of my Dale tail.

So now mum has to decide what we are gonna do about it. Bazzy says he don't care, cause it don't hurt.

Vet man says we can leave it alone (it may go back all on it own) or it may just stay bent forever.

The other option is to dock Bazzy's tail - oh noooooo, they gonna cut my tail off.

Mum says tail docking is illegal here in Australia, which is why Bazzy has a full tail.

But a vet will dock a tail for medical reasons. Looks like Bazzy has got good medical reasons.

Mum is gonna talk to daddy, see what he thinks........stay tuned.

Can you wrap it up somehow like in a soft cast and it can repair itself in time, Baz?
It kinda gives you character!

Love ya lots,

Poppy's tail was sort of like that when she first came to live with us. Our peeple were going to have it fixed, but it became part of her personality so they decided not to fix it. It took a couple of years, but it eventually straightened out all on it's own. We hope you have a great weekend!

Hi Ellie and Bazzy, nice to meet you! Wow Bazzy, that tail looks a bit tricky - I'm glad it doesn't hurt. My tail is docked, but it was done when I was really little so I don't really remember. I sure hope it works it's self out!

Mommy and I also wanted to say thank you so much for the thoughts about my Granddaddy. It' been difficult, but all the kind words have helped - thank you.
