Last night I walked into the house late, went to the bedroom and commenced to start playing with Cam, whom, of course, jumped on the bed and demanded attention. I then shrieked and recoiled in horror! It looked like an alien worm was coming out of his foot!!! Ewwww! Of course, I had to make Keith come over and get a good look at what it really was. We then surmised it was his dew claw, way over grown and curling into his flesh... which he clearly licked and licked and licked...

Poor baby! Needless to say, I called the boss man this morning and let him know I needed to head to the vet's office. Being the sweet people they are, they got us right in. And guess what? Our diagnosis was right. He left with all his nails trimmed and the crazy alien worm one fixed up. He got blue vet wrap and a surgical glove taped over it to protect it from getting wet. Needless to say, he was a pissed off puppy! It was hell trying to catch him to get the surgical glove off... and I may have to replace his blue vet wrap with purple... just sayin!

But our sweet rescue Cam is back in action and ready to dig and eat and wag his tail! Oh yeah, get your dogs nails trimmed regularly or you'll end up with a $119 puppy pedicure!
