I still can't play in the snow very much. Lizzy did take me for a walk, but she didn't let me run around after my ball in the snow. Do you have any idea how horrible it is to stay inside, day after day, and watch the snow slowly melt away? We got a lot of it, over 12 inches, but now it's half gone already!
We found out what was wrong with my paw. I actually didn't cut it on a piece of ice. And it wasn't my toe on my paw that hurt, but it was actually my nail on my toe on my paw that hurt. Turns out, last time I went for a haircut, the groomers forgot to clip one of my toenails. So my nail was really long, and it curled around and kinda dug into my paw, and it was all crushed and cracked near the top where it grows out from my toe. My humans decided to trim my nail back to it's normal length, and then let the crushed and cracked part grow out, and then trim it off again. So Lizzy and her dad held me down, while Lizzy's mom got out the doggy nail clippers. She put the clippers around my claw, and got ready to squeeze. Lizzy and her dad held on to me very tight. I had a feeling this would hurt...
Yes, it did hurt. A lot. I had yanked my paw back just as my nail was being clipped, so my whole nail ripped off from the top where it had been crushed. Now I have a very short, funny looking nail.
I do feel so much better now, though! I can walk comfortably again! But it'll take a while for my nail to grow back in, and I have to stay inside most of the time so that I don't get dirt inside my nail, so it doesn't get infected.
Here's a picture of me, from my short walk the other day. I wish I could play on the pond behind me before it melts, but I think I'll have to wait 'till next year...
Oh well. I hope you're all having a great week so far!
