CarPawl Tunnel UPDATE

Just to let you all know-I am fine. Mom and Dad did take me to the vet last night and it turns out it wasn't carpawl tunnel after all. It's still kinda embarassing but I guess I pounded the keyboard so hard that I broke a nail. (And I thought only girls did that) But I broke it back in underneath the skin. I wouldn't let the vet look at it so he gave me a shot that made me very very sleepy. But even being sleepy, I was feisty. I think I surprised all the nice people there. It's kinda hard to see but they shaved my toe and the nail is crooked and almost touching my other nail. They cut it back shorter than the rest of my nails and are hoping it will grow out on it's own. They sent us home with some pain meds and an antibiotic, just in case it decides to get infected. I was really sleepy last night but don't worry, I'm feelin' better already this morning, although I am typing very slowly. The only thing that bums me is that Wednesday Mom has off for her birthday and she was going to take me swimming at the Spa again. Doc says that might not be a good idea. Sorry Mom! I still think you're pretty cool for wanting to take me there on your birthday. We'll figure out something to do, won't we?

Chester's Mom: Sorry dude, I guess I was a little harsh on you yesterday. That must have hurt pretty bad.
Chester: Dang Tootin' it hurt! But don't worry, there's a song that says "Only the good die young"
Chester's Mom: In that case, you may live forever.

Woofs and slobbers!

I am so glad that you are okay. I was so worried I almost stole my moms car to come over and snuggle you to help the pain go away. rest up my dear. Love and Licks Mason

Chester's Mom said...

Sweet Mason-what a caring dog you are! Go ahead and steal the car and come nurse me back to health. I could probably use a bath too. Wink, wink. Nudge, nudge.
Yours fur-ever!

Oh my dear sweet lover-boy Chester is hurt? Nurse Sally needs to come take care of you. I'll wait on you hand and paw. I'll bring treats and plenty of dog movies that we can watch together. I'll bring your dinner to you on the couch. My poor Chester! Love, Sally

You'll be fine before you know it, Chester, and lets wish your Mom a Happy Birthday!

Oh, Chester, you really did have a serious owie on your paw and I accused you of being dramatic! I'm so sorry! I'm glad your mom took you to the vet and I hope you feel better soon. Happy Birthday to your mom!

See ya!

Team 3 Dawg Flight: Dear Sally, I would love for you to come over and bring dog movies and treats. How did you know I love treats? Dinner on the couch sounds lovely too. You probably need the rest after your serious jumping this weekend anyway. Which by the way may not happen for me next month since I boogered up my toe. Mom's gonna wait and see how I'm doing before signing me up. Sighhhhhh.....I was SO looking forward to jumping from a regulation size dock. So lotsa couch time would really help me heal. I'll be watching for ya! PS>Don't forget the treats!

You do look pitiful in the pictures...nothing sadder than a pup not feeling well.
Take care and get all the sympathy you can from this-chuckle!
Feel better soon you handsome boy!

Oh hell I got here late and had no idea. Did you ever figure out what did it?

Oh, and by the way - talking to your dog in print is the first sign of insanity ;)

Hi, Chester,
it's me,Nessa:-)Just stopping by to see you...you must be in pain, poor boy. I hope your mommy gives you a special bellyrub and a lot of hugs,

Life With Dogs asked: How did it happen?
We took a walk in the woods and then played fetch in the yard. Soon after he started to limp. We first thought he had a thorn in his paw but couldn't see it. By Sunday he wouldn't let us near it. So off to the vet we went on Monday.

Talking to my dog in print first sign of insanity?
