SoCS — Tangled Up In Blue

For this week’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday prompt, Linda G. Hill has asked us to “talk about the first blue object you see when you sit down to write your post.”Our dog, who is fast approaching 14, injured a toe pad on her left rear paw.

We took her to the vet because she was limping and was favoring that paw. The vet found a tear in her pad, and checked to make sure there wasn’t a sliver of glass or some other foreign objected embedded in her paw’s toe pad. Then she cleaned it out and prescribed some antibiotics, and told us to try out best to keep her paw clean and dry. She suggested getting our dog a bootie to wear when we walked her outside.ED1FF6E4-6000-4217-9AFC-59390271009CWhat you see in the picture above is the bootie we got for her. She’s not crazy about wearing it, and it does affect her gate, causing a bit of a stutter-step when she walks. But it certainly does keep dirt and crap from getting into her wound.

The good news is that her bootie is blue, and that blue bootie was the first blue object I saw before sitting down to write this post.

    Wouldn’t it be nice if we could just explain to dogs so they’d understand why they need to wear such things and take their medicine, and look how cute this bootie is! I hope the foot is better soon.

    Hope your doggo feels better soon. One of mine had an encounter with a wasp yesterday that was interesting but didn’t require a vet visit. They’re like little, furry toddlers sometimes. 🙂

      Thanks. Yes, toddlers who never grow up…they just grow old.

      Then I suppose I would have had to find something else blue to inspire me. Maybe the blue sky?

        Yup! I had to look for it. Not readily visible.

    Poor puppy… I hope she mend quickly, I’m not sure which is worse for them, a bootie or the cone around the neck.
