Tommy: Woofs Everyone! It's been quite a week so far for me! On Monday, when we were out in the big field and I was chasing my ball, #1 noticed me sitting at one point and licking something. That always makes her suspicious and she came right over and noticed specks of blood on my front left foot. She took a closer look and there was a poor claw, hanging by one thread, clearly torn. I wanted to continue playing but she insisted we go straight home where I left bloody pawprints all the way to our upstairs bathroom which is where she always administers first-aid care to me. By the time we got there, the torn claw was gone and it was just a bloody stump. She cleaned it up, disinfected it, put wound cream on it and then gauze and a bandage, with a special woofie sock on top, She then called our vet to check that there wasn't anything else to do. All good at that end. So, she has had me on reduce activity since, which I think is very unfair...
I am actually perfectly fit to play!
It's now been three days and it's healing very nicely. I get a new bandage every morning. I also take full advantage of the situation:
And, to make me feel better, # has been giving me some extra-special treats. These are treats she had ordered from Japan and her friends brought when they came last month. They are made from venison ribs, and they are incredibly yummy!
Our other news is that Camp Tommy opens today. Fernant's parents are going on holiday and will be gone until August 8th. Let the fun begin!
