Graceful hounds. Not.
Ditzy Sam has scraped his leg—a dime-sized raw patch on the inside of his left knee. He did it sometime yesterday, but I’m not sure when or how. One possibility: when he fell out of bed Monday morning…rolled over once too often. (Oreo has a bare spot on one leg where she fell off the bed—backed up too far, slipped, and scraped her shin on the footboard. This tells you how “hyper” retired racing greyhounds are: they suffer their injuries in bed.) I suppose Sam could have scraped a leg on the bed frame. Or it might have been some other typically-Sam maneuver.
