First I want to say Thank You to all my Pup Pals for the wonderful birthday wishes and gifts. You helped make my Birthday very special.
Daddy has another co-worker who has a big fenced in yard and a dog. He invited me, mom and dad to come over for a play date this afternoon. I was all excited because I haven't had a chance lately to really run. The yard was huge. The other dog was slow and she couldn't catch me. I was running like the wind, when suddenly my left hind foot really hurt. I stopped dead in my tracks and cried. Daddy came over to check on me and I cried again and wouldn't move. Mommy came over and checked my legs and I seemed to be OK. The humans waited for a few minutes and then they started to walk around the yard so I would follow them. Mom and dad wanted to see if I was limping. I followed and started to run again. Mom and dad thought everything was OK. Daddy's friend's wife suddenly noticed blood all over the leaves! Mommy checked me again and sure enough, it was me! I had torn a nail right off my foot! Mom did some quick first aid, but it was bleeding a lot. Daddy got me into the car and we headed right to the emergency vets! We were close so it only took about 5 minutes to get there. My toe continued to bleed a lot and got all over the floor of the waiting room. There was a dog who had just been hit by a car, so they had to take care of her first. Daddy also had to run back to our house because they needed my rabies vaccine records. Otherwise I would have to get vaccinated again!! Please NO!! Mommy stayed with me. After waiting about an hour, the vet saw me. My foot is all bandaged up and I am on pain medication and another antibiotic! I can't run for awhile and I can only go on shot walks for a few days. My cat brothers, Ben and Charlie have their annual check up on Wednesday. Mom and dad are bringing me too so my vet can check the wound and see if I need another bandage. The emergency vet will fax over all m information to my regular vet. My foot hurts!!
