Hopey, a 3-year-old Dachshund, is not one for the spotlight. She flinches at the clicks of a camera taking pictures of her, instead preferring to curl up in a dog bed under the front desk of Cherokee Veterinary Hospital in Lodi.
She is nearly fully wrapped in a purple and turquoise bandage. Only Hopey’s legs, neck, face and tail are free. Under the bandage is a terrible sight — a 14-inch long split down her back that a week ago was in some places six inches wide.
