    DefaultSkippy Tail - a picture history

    As many of you know, Skippy had to have a large portion of his tail amputed do to repeated injury on his part. He had a very large, long, heavy tail, usually held happily over his back, unless it was thumping repeatedly against walls, doors, cabinets, tables, or whatever. It started out as 20 inches long (measured from under the tail) and is now 12 inches. So 8 inches was amputated. It appears to be healing well, but it is hard to keep that boy quiet and calm :-\

    The tail, in all it's glory



    With it's bandage on - from the vets



    After the bandage was removed - it looks like a little white stub on the end



    You can tell how short it is by this angle - but he can still wag it to his hearts content

    I'm glad Skippy's happy tail is healing well. I think that a tail of a lab is the one part of its body that has the hardest work, they wag it most of the time and hit hard places with it, yet they dont seem to feel any pain.

    He looks great; I'm sure he'll feel so much better with the shorter tail.

    Weird, I know, but I measured Tucker's tail, after you said Skippy's was 20". Tucker's tail is a bit longer than some...it's 15" from the base to the tip.
