White Dog was glad to see him but was a little "iffy" about Tortuga's hospital smell and sutures. She would peek into the box to make sure the poor boy (who had lost his penis to amputation) was OK and then quickly jump onto the chair where she could watch the box without getting too close. For the next week Tortuga must stay indoors, be bathed regularly, receive treatments of antibiotic cream, and take two medications. White Dog will be a non intrusive but efficient nurse. Let's hope Tortuga's a cooperative patient.
