My Sore Foot

Been a long time since I posted, but I just haven't had much to write about lately. Last week Mama noticed I was limping, and when she looked she saw I had a raw spot on my pad. She watched it, and the next morning I was licking it constantly cuz it was botherin me. Well, Mama insisted it was getting worse and my licking was what was doing it (she's so dumb). You dogs know what she did? She put something called Neosporin on it and wrapped it up! That's right! She wrapped my leg from the knee down! I looked like the biggest dork on the planet, because not only did she wrap it, she wrapped it in HOT PINK vetrap stuff. Now...tell me how rediculous I looked being all white with a HOT PINK leg!

I tried to protest by wooing and showing her that there really was no way I could possibly lie down like that. I tried and tried, laying down except for that one leg, and then getting up again and wooing at her. You know what she did? Huh? She ignored me! She didn't even look at me. Well, the dramatic response wasn't working, so I finally gave in and just lay down.

It was sooo embarassing, the other dogs were making fun of me big time! I couldn't even go outside without stupid humans asking what was wrong with me. So much for being incognito in my dorkiness. Ugh.

Anyways, after a couple days of the neosporin she decided my foot needed to dry out, and the neosporin wasn't working for that particular purpose. She started cleaning it with peroxide (ouch!) and then putting gold bond powder on it per one very experienced human's suggestion.

It's been a week now and I've been bandage free for a few days. It's still a little tender, but I'm not licking it anymore and it's healing. She still puts the peroxide on it every day, but it's getting better.

I better be getting mucho dog park time for this!
