He was still bleeding this morning. I do not know how much blood he lost, but I don't think it was too much. His eyes were bright and he was alert, just tired. I brought him inside by the fire and cleaned up his wounds...just a few bites it appears, though it was hard to tell with all his fur. He was grateful for some treats I had saved for him as well, the fat and bones from some pork chops and he got to lick the pan clean. Then he had a drink and laid down to rest. Once he got too warm, he started to pant and wanted to go outside again. He does not like being inside, but I guess wearing that thick fur coat, it would make him uncomfortable at temperatures I find comforting. He slept most of the day in his dog house outside. The wind had died down, thank goodness, but the temperature is still minus 20 with a drop to -24 tonight. He had a snack of some dog kibbles and a drink and went back to bed in his house.
For the next week I will have to watch diligently for any changes in Harley, in his behaviour and in the wounds, in case they become infected. He has excellent immunity as evidenced from his many previous bites that have healed without incident.
I am just so grateful to have Harley home and thankful that
