It makes me very sad to see Riley permanently scarred. He has a large bald spot on his back from being attacked by a neighborhood dog named Branson. His wound went through several stages, the last of which was a very large scab that took a month to heal. As it healed, large clumps of hair fell off Riley's body. The vet said he will likely not grow hair back in that spot. Thankfully, Riley is a very hairy dog, and he has some "comb over" to cover his bald spot. No one will know about it except those reading my blog.
