The Puppy is Just Fine

Got the call back from the vet... the lump turned out to be a MASSIVE inflammation of the cuticle that manifested itself in a VERY odd way! YEAH! He probably stepped on one of the wasps that keep trying to make nests in our yard (on the ground) or stepped on a stick.

I never thought I would celebrate a massive inflamation. Guess there's a time for everything. And, at least it's gone? Though, surgical removal does seem a little bit overkill...

Thank you all SO much for all your kind words and thoughts as we worried about this this week!

Here's a quick picture of the puppy, with his anti-chewing sock:

Five more days of light walks until we can remove the bandage for good and let the pup run!

I am so glad. I was worried about your puppers. I know when my first yorkie broke his little paw I was in the vets balling like a big old baby. So i am guessing you are relieved.

Oh, that's wonderful news!! So glad he's okay. I like the anti-chewing sock, too. My little Pom needs a pair of those; he gnaws on his little front legs til the fur's gone.
