Mr. Wilson.. is just fine and running around like his usually goofy self.. 

Thanks for asking all!!

He tore his front left dewclaw nail on the weekend.. and when he came in I noticed blood, so I cleaned him up and it looked ok to me..   but I noticed on Tuesday night that the nail was still there but it was hanging off and it was still attached to his "quick" .  He whined when we shook paws... Well.. I didn't want to remove it.. so down to the vets we went..  They removed it.. he got an antibiotic shot and we rumbled home... 

He oesn't like going to the vets.. last two times he was there he had lumps removed.. lol  When Dr. Hill came in the room, Wilson got up and came to sit by me leaning into my leg as if to say.. "OH NO!!!  Not you again!!!"


How's Ms. MM today??

Christine.. with Franklin in her heart♥

Franklin, he was the Happiest Dog on Three Legs! Diagnosed 09/26/2012 with Osteosarcoma, amputated 12/4/2012.  Had a wonderful 5 1/2 months painfree until he ran for the Bridge on 5/15/2013.  Always in my heart, and always a guardian angel of my pack...   You can follow his Tripawd Adventures, before and after, in my blog, Frank'n'Farter!
