My poor pup.

Happy Monday everyone. Today was beautiful! Sunny and a breezy 60 degrees. Perfect for a light jacket, jeans, and flip flops 8-) The little girl I nanny for took a nice long watch. It just felt so refreshing to be outside after such a long, dreadful, and rather harsh winter. I'm hoping the snow is gone for good.

(via: here)

I was supposed to start the 2nd week of Couch to 5k but sadly, my poor little fur baby hurt her paw. Last night, I decided to give her a bath because she was out playing all day and she was dirty. As I was drying her, I noticed that the little paw pad above the big paw pad was cut and a part was hanging off. Being the crazy, caring dog mom I am, I called the vet right away and asked what I should do lol. I have no idea how she did this and she was walking normally so I don't think it hurt too bad. I think that since there has been so mnuch salt on the sidewalks from the snow, it dried her paw pads out and that's how it happened. Who knows. They said to put neosporin on it and cover it with gauze so that she can't rip the rest off. If it still looked bad today, I should bring her in. They didn't have any appointments so I'd have to be a walk in. So after work today, I picked up Snugs and off to the vet we went. We got there at 4:45 and weren't seen until 6:00. She was so good though unlike the other crazy, barking dogs lol. When we were finally seen, the vet just numbed the area and cut off the hanging part. He said it will heal by itself and she'll be back to normal in no time. She's such a trooper.


Tomorrow, I'll be starting the 2nd week of C25k. I did it 4 times last week and I really enjoyed it. I'm glad I'm sticking with it too. I feel great after I finish.

This week is a stressful one. I have 2 HUGE midterms as well as other homework. A lot of studying is in my future. Wish me luck! I need to pass them lol. Then next week is spring break! Thank goodness. Even though I'm not going anywhere, I still need a break from school. So, I may not be around to read or comment for a day or two :-(

For those of you still in school, what are you doing for your spring break? If you're not, any fun events coming up?!

The poor darling! It must have really hurt. I decided to do Tuesday Thursday Saturday for my C25K. I did the Shred today with my friend. I'm going to visit my parents next week, and then I have to come back to Jackson for Friday.

Poor Snuggles. I feel so bad for them. They can't tell you "mommy it hurts"! You are going to do amazing on your midterms and you are GOING to pass! I have spring break next week! The joys of working in the schools!

Risley said...

poor baby! hope she is better soon and you 2 are off running :)

Poor pup! Bauer has hurt his paw multiple times and it always breaks my heart to see him limp around - but your vet is right, it is an injury that has to heal on its own. Hope Snuggles is all better soon!

Alissa said...

Aww your poor doggy. I would have done the same thing calling the vet right away. I hope he heals up fast and soon.

Aw puppy! My lab actually has this happen kinda often. We play fetch with him in the street of our dead end and he gets so excited by the ball he does the same thing his pad on his foot ripped then we notice him limp.. Needless to say we play on the grass field now instead of hard surfaces. But neo does the trick!
