Luckily the vet could see us virtually straight away, he even came out to the car and he didn't get much blood splattered on him! He bandaged her tail up and then bandaged the tail to Beryl's left hind leg. She managed to jump into the car OK but when we got home she couldn't work out how to stand up with her tail attached to her leg, lol! I had to help her stand up and then lift her out of the car:) She's worked out how to jump on the bed pretty quickly but not how to have a wee, lol! I'm afraid I can't help her with that ....!
It's frustrating because Beryl isn't a rampant tail wagger. She just has a knack of whacking it in the wrong place sometimes. So I'm going to keep it attached to her leg for quite a while to give it the best chance to heal properly and see how it goes this time. But she has gone for about 4 months between damaging it and I would have thought it should be well healed by then! Docking is an option of course, but I'll try everything else before resorting to that. I'm quite vain about Beryl's tail, lol!
On to happier things, some photos from the beach today:)
