Sore Paw

A few days ago, Target scraped his paw pads on his front right paw and his back left paw.  Most of it has healed but the back paw still has a small sore spot - right between the toes.

After a morning's snoopervising on my desk, Target got up to come for lunch and limped.  I panicked.

I toted him to the bedroom, turned him on his back and checked for broken bones, swelling, heat and so on.

Target whimpered beautifully and let me prod and poke him with a martyr-like air.

I'm relieved to tell you it's nothing.  It's a tiny raw patch about 3mm across.  But I'm sure it hurts.  So Target is tucked up on the sofa, and I am going to hover over him for a while.

See you on Facebook!

I hope Target's paw heals up soon - I bet it is one of those things that isn't that bad of an injury but hurts lots anyway.

Oh dear. A sore paw is no fun. Whenever we have a sore paw, The Mum puts baby bum cream on it.
