This is James. He's running all the controls.
You can see the chainsaw bar in the upper R of this photo. When it's in this position the chain is not running.
In this photo James has lowered the bar and the chain is running. And James is attentive to the task at hand.
According to James
"Don't put hand on chain saw while running. Hurts!"
Next photos are a little graphic. Not for the faint of heart.
Two weeks ago James somehow managed to bump the bar pushing it forward enough to start the chain.
Here we are, all sewn up. He was wearing kevlar gloves. Truly amazing. Not only does he still have his thumb, but he missed all tendons, nerves, and major blood vessels.
I looked at his stitches today. They will come out tomorrow.
And we now have a James Guard on the bar.
"Oh geez humans!
No dog would get caught in such a fix. Not even Pickles!
And I think I need some better pics of Pickles!
Tomorrow Miss P.
