hi bloggies.

these past couple of days have been the pits. my toe toes hurt.. i can walk..if i step on it in the wrong way, try to do kick backs in the grass after i pee, go up the kazillion stairs to my 2nd floor apartment.. hop in the car.


mom thought i 'stumped' my toe toe on something.
(they are rather large)
and thought i was getting better.

played with my snakey pal.. pushed around my kibble ball..
even got in the car for walkies at the park
so, she cancelled the vet appt. 3 days ago!

until yesterday,
this was me
curled up next to the window for more than 12 hours.

stuck in the same spot!

not going outside!
nope not this kid.

she's keeps looking at my feetsies.
doesn't see anything stuck in there.

back on the phone to call the vet.
they think it could be lyme's disease.
said it causes lameness which can shift from paw to paw and cause joint pain.

my appointment is first thing this morning...
hope mom has tricks up her sleeves for getting me in the car
and load up the treat pouch
for letting the doctor examine my toe toes.

wish me luck (and mom too)!

Oh no Tula! Jesea's dog, Oliver, just had some kind of yeast infection in his paws, which caused them to hurt. Hopefully it's just something like that & not Lyme disease...I do not like the sound of that! Hopefully your Mom won't have to carry you cuz I don't think that is possible!
Hope the vet appt. goes well.
love ya,

Uh oh. Make sure you don't have any warts between your toes. I got those once and had to go to Tufts because it was a symptom of bad things happening with my immune system. I also got the lyme disease. If that's what it is, they will give you medicines to make you feel better really fast.


Lucia said...

Tanti baci!
