We were playing fetch in the house, and she so loves to play. All I have to do is say, “Where’s the ball?”, and she’s off and running. I have this long corridor from my office to the bedroom, and I throw the ball, and she prances back. This time she slid on the rug in the bedroom, and YELP! And this 3 legged dog came back to me whimpering, and blood was dripping on my floor.
What had happened was she cracked her entire nail off it was sticking into the pad of her foot. That little black thing is her whole nail the Vet said just dropped out of her paw. She’s on antibiotics and pain killers. My poor baby! ~sniff-sniff~ She was a trooper I must say.
She was next to my chair all day asleep. She took her medicine very well that was hidden in a piece of sausage. ~hehe~ Hey, who cares she took it, right? Doctor says she’s overweight, so we’ll work on that now that Spring is here, and as soon as her paw gets better. She weighs 72 lbs. big moose, but she’s my moose. Isn’t she beautiful, and she’s such a good dog!
|She laid by me all day, and all night by my bed!|
I feel so bad for animals when they get hurt, and they can’t tell you what’s wrong!
We’re not sure if the nail will grow back, but we’ll see what the Vet says on the 19th.
HUGS & SMOOCHES TO MY POOCH!!
All get well cards and good health wishes accepted for our baby!
