    Sorry to see that Piper got injured. Hopefully, she gets a full recovery quickly. These things happen . At least it was the last hunt of the season and not the first. Thanks for posting on the site.

    Not clear, to me, how the dog was injured...leg trap?

    Glad she is doing OK.

    She ran into some old sheet metal in the field. I think it was from and old shed or trough. I sent her out for the retrieve because thought the bird was going down...she plowed right into it. No leg trap .
    Thanks for watching

    That is a nasty injury. I am glad to hear Piper is ok. Tough to see a dog get hurt when you are in the middle of nowhere. Heal quickly Piper.

    Thanks Walk213,
    Not the way I wanted the season to end but it could have been a lot worse. Dr. Eaton down in Lamar was awesome. Thanks for watching.

    Thanks for the videos Kiva. Tears me up seeing a dog get hurt. Glad she is on the mend.
    Old homesteads with abandoned farm equipment/ trash piles scare the heck out of me for this exact reason.

    My Brittany ripped open the inside of her rear leg the opening weekend of the South Dakota season and I had to sit out the next two weeks. So better it happened to you at the end of the season. I'm surprised there wasn't more blood. Not sure what my Brittany ran into in the field but she was a bloody mess. Looked like someone had shot her, blood from nose to tail but didn't slow her down a bit. After we got her back to the vehicle and cleaned up it was just one big gash. I carry a surgical stapler in my first aid kit to we stapled it shut and bandaged her up. Took her to the vet the next day and they added a few more staples. Healed up just fine. Good luck with you dog.
