I hurt my foot!

Last weekend I hurt my foot running around the yard with Winston. It seemed like an abrasion to one of my dew claws (those darn previous owners never had them removed). Mom called the vet who said since there was no bleeding or infection, to just put a cone on my head so I wouldn't lick it and keep it irritated!!! Do you think they were looking to get some special rays funneled down from my head to my toes???? I dunno! Everything seemed ok except it hurt to touch the nail.

Anyway, today I didn't want to chase squirrels, can you imagine that!!! They were coming right up to the back stairs and I just sat there. That's NEVER happened before. Mom trimmed the hair away and could see a fracture in the nail. So off to Dr. Porte I went! I wasn't too happy about that, especially his plan to fix it. They gave me a shot to "relax" me, then they took the nail off. Then they wrapped it up. The worst part is that the dressing is PINK!!! What were they thinking??? Then they put another softer cone on my head! When I got home, dad held me while I told him all about it. Then we both fell asleep.

It hurts to walk on it right now. But mom gave me pain meds tonight and some other stuff so I'm sleeping it off. I have to go back to see Dr. Porte on Friday to have the dressing changed. It sounds like it's going to be a long week!
