to a dog's tail.
Notice anything different about Ralphie? Here's a hint...
his tail used to be about 7" longer than it is now. Yep, it was docked on Friday after MUCH discussion, research and many tears on my part. The end just wouldn't heal and it was starting to get infected. Ralphie hasn't missed a beat since the surgery...I, on the other hand, my need long term therapy.
I'm so anti docking and cropping that it's hard for me to truly be okay with our decision...even though it was for a medical reason and even though I KNOW it was the best decision for Ralphie. Pit bull docks and crops are generally done to make the dog look more bad ass...and that is generally the result. Ralphie still has half a tail...so I guess that makes him only half a bad ass, right?
