I got a Sore Poor Paw!

Hi Woofers!

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret here!

Well, it's Friday and the sun has come back again! We were out walking this morning and Old Two Legs even took his jacket off 'cos he was so warm!

The ferrets were not running, more of a steady amble along sniffing the sniffs and keeping an eye open for mouses!

A couple of days ago I went in for a 'Deep Paddle' and when I came out my back paw was hurting me. I couldn't put it on the ground so I lifted it up and sort of hopped along!

OTL noticed this and took a look at it but couldn't see any problems, so he cleaned the sand out of between the pads and off I went on all four paws.

It still didn't feel right but I was big and brave and carried on walking and even jumping up on OTL's lap.

Yesterday evening I was still limping every so often so OTL turned me on my back and took a good look at my paw again. He was poking about in between the pads looking for any grass seed that may have got stuck but he couldn't see anything, it was then he touched a sore spot which made me yelp!

He thought it may be a sprain or something and decided to keep an eye on me.

Today, down on the beach I was having a roll in a sniff when I suddenly yelped again!

OoooooH! That Hurt!
 That was it, out came the telephone and OTL had booked me into the vet tomorrow morning at nine fifteen for the vet to have a look.

I don't know how he is going to get near my paw if I won't even let OTL near it!

Maybe they will knock me out with some of what OTL calls 'Doppy Pills' the same one that Holly had to have when she first had a haircut!

I'll let you know what happens tomorrow!

Bye bye for now.

  1. Afternoon little maties. Oooooohhhh Daisy, I am so sorry to hear you've got a sore paw. I hope the sore goes away soon. Wot a shame you've got to go to the vets, now I like going but I can understand that you don't. Hope they're very gentle with you, maybe some knock out drops will do the trick, otherwise they might put a muzzle on you, now I'm used to wearing a muzzle but it's not nice. Has OTL tried putting your paw in a bowl of very warm salt water? I'm sure he has tried everything so I wish you luck at the vets tomorrow, you know wot they're like they'll be getting out their sharp stabbing needles ......... don't look Daisy, don't look ........ if they get things out that I don't look my mum covers my eyes so I can't it sneaking up on me. Hope they sort it and you're back on 4 paws very soon. You'll have to leave the guarding to Holly chops in case you have a sprain, they have some nice coloured bandages at the vets these days, just watch out Mrs TM don't try to nick if for her crafting. Make sure she doesn't put glitter on as well cos glitter makes you itch. It's been a much nicer day, sun out but not too warm, mind I've had a lazy day cos I was up very early and guarding while my mum went to work. I've not had the chance of a roll or a lick at a sniff today, it's like walking round with a member of the S.S. Everywhere I go, there's my mum watching with her hawk eye!!! I did try to get my muzzle off cos I did sniff a tasty sniff but there she was telling me off and making sure I didn't take the muzzle off ........... spoilt all my fun. Hope you all have a good evening and take care Daisy, don't get up for mugging, just give OTL a pitiful look and he'll bring some treats to you. Love, licks, wags and sniffs from little (my mum says I smell better) Arch and Mr (thank goodness I can breath again) Nipper. xxxxxxxxx
