Days In the Life of a Non-Herding Herder

Poor Pitiful Paw

Well, a couple weeks ago, Ma and Dad noticed a cut on my front right ankle. It seemed to be healing so they left it alone to see what it looked like in a couple of days. I wouldn't leave it alone, so the first cut healed, but another one opened up from me chewing on it! Dad took me to the vet on Friday and now I have antibiotics and some anti-itch pills and spray. I try to be good and take the pills, but I'm never happy about it. After Ma puts the spray on me I usually go hide in a corner for a few minutes. BOL!

Oh, Shula sweetie, take care of that paw. You don't want it getting infected! Maybe that spray stings a little!

Ma was wondering that, too, Hanna Belle! She always feels bad about putting it on because I'm so good and hand her my paw and everything. I do get lots of extra snuggles and belly rubs though!

Oooh Shula, you take care of that paw. I bet that spray stings just a little bit. :)

Thanks, all my pals! It seems to be getting better already. Or at least I'm not messing with it as much!

After trying everything(and I mean everything !) I have found good old fashioned Bag Balm is the best thing to heal Flicka's paws. He sheds his pads sometimes.. but using that stuff(and Mushers Secret) seems to be the key to healing.

Hugssssss for you !!!!
