Scruffy and Lacie and Butchy and Snickers gave me this "I LOVE YOUR BLOG" award. Thank you so much, I am honoured. I know a lot of you have received this already. I will pass it onto Oscar's darling Faya.
And little cutie Clover, and handsome Marvin gave me this Halloween themed award. You're making me blush! I'll give this to Mojo, as she is a sweet little Airedale puppy and I know she'll be a great real-life friend to myself and Cassidy.
As you can see, my foot was fairly sore. It looks worse as the vet shaved my hair off as she said that helped control the infection significantly.
The darker area is tough skin. Ma thinks this suggests that I have had this problem for a while and it wasn't treated. The fresher raw bit is where I was biting at it. Looking at it now I am not impressed with myself for making such a mess of my foot! It has healed up lots now though and thanks not the girly pink pills I am much less itchy. I finish taking them tomorrow morning and to be frank I'm a bit sad, as I was getting them hidden in a nice piece of cheese. Note to others - pretend you don't like taking tablets and you too could enjoy the same lumps of delicious fromage! Hopefully this is the last of the infection, but if it flares up again it seem the vet will have to do some investigations to try and deduce the root of the problem.
I went to talk to Oscar to tell him how silly I felt being a big conehead, and he told me ma and pa made him wear one too! Do these people relish making dogs look daft? He told me the looking forlorn thing really works well for getting cuddles and treats. Thank you for the tips little man.
We are hopefully off to see the pups tomorrow or Wednesday, and we should definitely be able to decide which one is Cassidy, or perhaps young Cassidy will choose us. Either way it's all very exciting. I passed Oscar's old training school on Saturday morning as the young puppies were going into class and I had an excellent time playing with a baby Labrador. His owners were astonished when ma told them I was 10 - "10 months?" they said, har har har!
