Oh, oooooooooh; the pain, the PAIN! I can't stand it! This is my foot. Do you see anything different about it? Like how my two middle toes are BRIGHT RED and SWOLLEN?
Yes, my friends. There was a tragedy in our house last night. Massah came home from work last night and then immediately left again. She put me in jail, as usual. Well, somehow I shredded the towel that was in my jail, and some of the threads got wrapped around the two middle toes on my back right foot!
When Massah got back - THREE HOURS LATER - I was crying and crying because the threads were cutting off the circulation on my toes and I couldn't feel them any more and I couldn't put any weight on them and I was shaking because it hurt so bad and I wouldn't let Massah put me down!
Massah had to perform a delicate operation to cut it off my foot. I was so scared!
That is the blanket that I tore up, and next to it is the cluster of threads that were trying to cut off my toes. Please don't ever leave me alone again, Massah!
Note from Massah: I feel SOOOO bad! Holy CRAP this little boy was freaked out! As was I, when I saw what was wrong! The emergency vet said his toes would be bruised for a couple days, and even if they were broken they really couldn't do anything. She said I could give him some baby asprin for the pain, but it would most likely upset his stomach. So that was out of the question, since I think we all know what happens when his pancreas gets upset. I have learned a couple things - first, don't put anything in the crates unless it is specifically made for DOGS (special blankets that can't be shredded) and secondly, this is what happens when I try to have a life and do something other than take care of my dogs. Talk about GUILT! Never again will I go to a movie after work! ;-) My poor little naked Chinese man... he made sure his neck was pressed up against my nose and mouth for a couple hours. I'm not sure why that is comforting to him, but okay....
I'm going to be okay, but I'm sure enjoying all this extra attention. I'm going to try my luck and see if I can't get some extra mumpkin tonight for dinner!
