My Toe and the Snow...

Guess what? It finally snowed again! And it's supposed to snow a lot more! We got about 4 inches right now, and we're supposed to get tons more tonight and tomorrow. This is so exciting! However, there's just one problem... I can't play in it.

You heard me right. I can't play in the snow. And it sucks. Why, you might ask? Well, my humans say I need to "rest" for a few days. Excuse me? I can't rest now! There's fresh snow on the ground, just waiting to turn yellow and get played upon! I mean, just look at it all! (This is up at the frozen pond)

Okay, so I need to rest. The reason is, I hurt my paw. Actually, I hurt one of my toes on my paw. We're not sure how, really. I might have cut it on some ice. There's been ice everywhere for the last week. Lizzy tries to feel my toe, or at least look at it, but it's too painful to be handled, and I have to much fur on my paws so she can't see what's wrong. My humans said I have to rest for a few days, and I can't play on my paw very much. And if it doesn't get better in a few days, I'll have to go to the vet. Man, I hope it gets better real fast!

Do you have any idea how hard it is to stay inside, and not play in the snow?

I hope the rest of you are all having a good week so far!

Hi Sparky, so sorry about your sore toe. we had snow too and we played and played in it. that's a big stinkin' bummer that you can't play in the snow. a dog waits all year for snow and it's pure torture to have to stay inside and not play. poor Sparky. poor toe. we hope you get better really fast before the snow melts.


Lenny said...

Hey Sparky, I really hope you don't have to go to the vet! Hopefully the snow will stick around long enough for you to get to play in it.

Your friend, Lenny

Ferndoggle said...

Sparky, I know not playing the snow sucks...but think of how bad it is to go to the V.E.T!

Get your rest.


Toby said...

Sparky, so sorry to hear about your paw. But Mom is totally right in this case, you must rest and make sure the paw gets better. Don't worry, there'll be more snow to come.

Oh, Sparky, we're so sorry you can't go play in the snow since you want to. We've never played in the snow, so we don't miss it, but it sounds like fun.

Poor Sparky! Are you sure there isn't something caught between your toe pads in amongst the hairs?? Otherwise you're probably right, hurt it on the ice. Mama told us it's easy to hurt your toes on that nasty stuff. All of our snow that was soft the other day when it was warm is now rock hard. Very hard to walk on. Be sure to get to the vet if it's not better. Keep us posted!!
Luv & Wirey Hugs!
