On The Injured List

Take a look at my nail to the right in the pictures....I realize it doesn't look that bad in photos but it is not a walk in the park either. ;) So, Mom and I went for a walk with my furiend, Sierra, and her Mom, Colleen last night! It was a great walk but when we got back to the car Mom noticed I was licking my paw. Once home and with further inspection, Mom noticed blood and that I had cracked my nail pretty good. She cleaned it up and now I have to take it easy for a couple of days. I tired to pounce on a toy and it hurt so I had to limp for a bit and Mom said I was allowed no more "rough housing" for a while. I hope it is better for the weekend because I want to go for a hike and play with my furiends! Oh, guess what??? I know I got injured on the walk but it was still really fun AND when we got back to the cars we heard REAL coyotes yipping up in the hills! It was super cool as Mom and I have never heard them like that before! Good thing Sierra and I were in the car or we may have gone to find them so we could play. ;)

P.S. My nails are not painted....they are just that black! :)

Ahh poor Nala. It can be so painful to break a nail, that's what mummy say anyway, cos she moan us doggies always breaking her nails!!

I hopes it recovers quickly!! xxx

aww, poor nala. this happened to roux recently, except it was cracked further down and hanging off at an angle... we used super glue and a little strip of medical tape to keep it together until it grew out and that worked great.

hopefully nala's will grow out quickly!

Life With Dogs said...

That makes me cringe. We have seen a few of those and they seem to be quite painful.

Aw, poor thing. A broken nail hurts a lot so you better get some rest for a couple of days... I'm sure you'll be play-ready in no time. ;) Have a great Sunday!

WOOF, I give you lickies for your paw too! I have that black of a nail too! Mommy curses them cause she's too afraid to cut them, but she went out and got this new fangled THING that she has tried to start using on me... PediPaws... can you believe it?! I think the inventor should be bit in the butt!

Oh no! Your poor little foot! I hope it's better by now. No rough housing is the hardest rule to follow!

BARK! I hurt my nails a lot too, especially when I go running with mommy and daddy on their bikes. I dont let them know until we get home, because I want to run and run. Then usually find out when the red stuff on the floor gives it away. I am a tough girl... I can handle it. BARK! Sasha the Princess

Mango said...

I cracked my nail once. It bled a lot and was really ouchie. You have to be careful or it won't get better. You are very good to let your mom handle your dainty feet like that.
