Poor little Jack...

If it can be done, he's gonna do it. Houdini himself. Jackson has been there and done that over the past 4 years. Let's see.. Ate 5-6 chocolate candy bars- Check. Ate 8 chicken wings- bone included, Check. Got out of his crate and hung himself by his collar, Check. Drank a pot full of hot dog water, Check. I'm sure there are other things I'm not thinking of right now, but the latest has to do with his toenail. Apparently he broke his toe nail pretty good at the beach a few weeks back. Long story short, the vet told us to give him an aspirin for the pain until we got him to the vet in the morning. We gave him Tylenol. BIG MISTAKE. It very well could have killed him. After staying up all night puking his poor brains out, he broke his nail again and Zack took him to the vet. 1 surgery to remove the toe nail and bag of fluids later, he was doing just fine. Fast forward 6 weeks. His toe is about twice the size it should be. I took him to the vet this afternoon, and hes back on antibiotics and pain med to get his toe back to normal. Seeing you son walk around like a tripod is no fun, he looks too pitiful. So I hope this works and Jackson gets back to normal- if there is such a thing.
