Thank you for all the concern regarding Bandit's leg. It's healing up well but he tends to lick it a lot. He kept the bandages on that first day, but he quickly chewed them off the next morning. I did re-bandage it but it all came off even quicker the second time.
Bandit's going through another barking phase when we're out on our walks, so I've decided to take a whistle with us the next time to see if a loud blast or two will do the trick.
