You know that paw pad thingy that is up higher on your leg? Kinda like a doggy thumb? Not the dew claw, but that other useless pad? You all with me so far?
Well, apparently there is a large chunk missing from one of mine! Yesterday, Mom kept noticing small spots of really light blood on the sofa. She checked me over and found nothing. Later she found the blood next to me on her bed!! She then saw that place on the useless Thumb Paw Pad. A piece of it was just hanging there. eeuuwww....
She put Neo-sporin on it, wrapped it up, and called the vet. By this time she was about hyperventilating. The vet says this happens all the time!! If the piece doesn't fall off on it's own, then bring me down on Friday and they'll snip it off. Mom then felt kinda sheepish for the panic and all.
I, myself, barely noticed it. Not even a lot of licking! It's much better today and looks mostly healed. (We're going to the vet anyway, though. GAH! I need the heartworm test and a pedicure and flea meds.)
Never in all of Mom's dog lovin life had she seen this happen. Who knew?!

Jarvis - we've never heard of hurting this part of your foot. My mum thinks I have unusually large pads on that part of my foot so she will have to watch this now. THanks for the heads up.
Hope yours heals quickly!
Another neurosis to add to mother's list...
BTW - love the fact that you get pedicures! Very metrosexual.
Mine are really gross, according to Mom, because pawsonally, I don't look at them. The pad is all grainy and bristly, so of course, when I fall asleep on Mom's lap, what does she do? Yep, she picks at it. Next thing I know she'll probably get one of those Pedi-Egg things and start trying to start slicing pieces off. If your Mom suddenly rushes off to Walgreens and brings home a Pedi-Egg, Jarvis, you run the other way.
Mom is on her way home to look and see if I have one of those thumby things :)
Maybe they will take you in that AWESOME car! You would look so great in that vehicle. Explain if they do not let you in what damage your claws can do as you jump at it trying to get in the window!
I've heard tales around my house that my sister Kirby (now at the Bridge) sliced her whole thingy off. And acted like nothing had happened. Mom didn't notice it until there was blood all over the walls. All Kirby wanted to do was eat her dinner! Her's healed very nicely.
The squirrels bit your wrist paw pad thingy while you were sleeping!!! Want me to water board them for you? I already have fashioned some squirrel pawcuffs from a bread tie and Finkmom's mini hoop earrings. And I have an eye dropper to water board the little bass turds with. I'm ready!!!
BTW, I think Neosporin ointment is the best tastin' thing since bacon!!!
