A couple of days after we arrived in France for our Easter holiday, Lulu cut a pad on her foot. It didn't seem to bother her at all but there was a huge amount of blood everywhere. I was worried that it might get infected so I put a plaster on, then a bandage held in place with the only thing we had strong enough for the job, red plastic tape.

We think she did it running about in the fields behind the château where there are lots of bits of flint lying around. We kept a bandage on for a few days until the bleeding had more or less stopped. She ran around on it as normal. It got her a lot of sympathy, anyway.
