Perfectly Pedicured Paw

Mama got a call this morning from my vet - he just wanted to check up on me, make sure that all was well since my foxtail surgery. We've never gotten a call like that before, and it was damn nice. Yes I finished all of my pain medicine and today was my last day of antibiotics and you would be proud Mr. Vet, I have not played with my paw at all - not while the spiffy purple bandage was on nor once mama pried it off.

All of my walkies have been fine - through city streets and my local parks. No pain, no infection, just some fine, fuzzy healing.

Behold... the paw:

I am very happy indeed that I didn't get the full shave this time - the last two times I had to have foxtails removed from my poor paws I got a full-on baldie, making my paws look damn silly. The vet here in Portland was kind enough to think of my dignity once the bandage was removed and only shaved my toes.

Thank you good doctor!

Wow! What a great Vet! You should visit him and give him kisses Bogart! Or maybe one of your very best pine cones.

Glad to see you are walking tall, Bogart. You are cute!
We had a paw episode the other day - ran to vet and it was nothing. Thankfully! Just a little trauma. And drama, but not piercing of skin, etc.

Have a great day!

Bogart, you are just as handsome with your purple paw as you are without it! You are just a handsome guy, wish we lived closer to each other, I'd try to talk my mommy into letting me walk with you*pei sighs* but for now, I'll just read about all your adventures and dream about you sweet boy at night.
