I get home from work late and say hi to everyone. The next thing we know, Chris' pants are covered in blood. Apparently the dogs got into a fight shortly before I got home and Berkley managed to pierce Cisco's ear -- he had blood running down from the same place on both sides of his ear. We figure out the source, I apply pressure, and the bleeding slows. I decide to call the vet since they're only open for another 20 minutes to find out how I should clean this so it doesn't get infected. They suggest we come in and have them do it and take a look.
Cisco and I head out to the vet leaving Chris behind to clean the drops of blood we're now finding on the linoleum, carpet and couch. Turns out Berkley managed to nick a vein and the ear is still bleeding. An hour later we leave with 4 stitches (2 on each side) and 14 days worth of antibiotics.
Something had been brewing between the two of them for the last week. We've had a few very tense meal times (they only ever fight over food). I don't know what has gotten into them, but hopefully it's now out of their system.
