Lampshade Model

I'm planning to get back to work at the Blogville City Offices this week but, I've been injured.  I have something called a hot spot on my toes. 

It goes down in between my toes and is very sore.  I know, it isn't pretty but the worst part is that the V.E.T. says I did it to myself!  I am not very happy that my doctor said that......

....as you can see by my face.
Momma says I have to wear this all the time because I won't leave my sore alone and because the V.E.T. says it would be bad for me to lick the medicine off of it.

I have to go back to the doctor on Tuesday and hopefully I won't be a lampshade model when I get home because my sore is looking a lot better now.

My grandma is home from the hospital and doing better.  She is still on oxygen and her V.E.T. told her that it might be a while before she doesn't need it any longer.  She is still weak but we live close by so Daddy and Momma can help her and Grandpa most days.  Grandma has to get plasma and platelets several times a week due to her leukemia.  

Thank you all for sending her lots of POTP and prayers while she was in the hospital.  She was really, really sick and needed as much help as she could get.  I know she is also thankful for your support. 

For Stanley's eyes only:
I've really missed you but I'm glad to be back to work so I can admire your Monkey Buns!

Good to see you, Taffy, and so happy to hear that Grandma is home and doing better. But that is terrible about the lampshade and the owie. Mom said to tell you about this stuff Mom had for Phantom that she got from the vet. It is called Bitter Orange double strength cream for dogs. It is sort of like that Bitter Apple spray but it is thicker. Trust us, you won't want to lick it at all. It is safe to put on sores like that.

Oh Taffy darlin'... you gave yourself a 'worry-wart'! my Angel Jade once did that to herself when I was going through a bad time...she was feeling my anxiety, it seems. Anyhoo, you are in good paws - as, clearly, has been your granny and it is so good to read that she is doing better. Continuing with the POTP on all counts! Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

Oh boy! We get toe sores a lot but they're usually buggy bites. Mom checks our feets all the time. We hope yours feels all better really soon.

KB Bear said...

It's allergy season around here which leads allergic dogs like R to lick their paws and legs until they get hot spots. I hope that yours heals really really fast. That lampshade is no fun.

Hello friend: I've been visiting your web and I found "great", with good newspaper articles.

I would like to share with you and your readers more information about the Dachshund dog breed.

I hope you like my blog "Dogs and Cats".
