First of all I want to start out by saying I'm ok so don't be too sad during my story about what happened today. So the girl next door was looking through the fence huffing and puffing at Brother Bear and me, so I pounced the fence right where her face was to let her know how much I don't like it when she does that. During the commotion I did feel a little pain in my right front paw but I was too worked up by our fence line scuffle to pay it any attention. Then it really started to sting and then it started throbbing. I broke two of my nails, one in half and the other almost down to the skin. Daddy and Mommy were eating dinner so they didn't see my injury until after I left a blood trail all over the patio then into the house across the carpet and up onto the leather couch. Mommy went into panic mode when she saw the blood everywhere she even cried a little with me when Daddy was pouring hydrogen peroxide on my paw. The bleeding stopped in less than 10 minutes. The bandage is big and clumsy so I can hardly walk while wearing it but I will let this one heal along time before I do any thing like this again.
Sierra's Mommy here. Boy, when it rains it pours. It's hard to believe that clawing a fence can break a pup's nails.:( Sierra hates when we clean her wound but other than that she's great. She's playful, cuddly, still loves treat and dinner time. I actually think she enjoys not going for walks. Still, it breaks my heart that my Baby Girl has not one but two owies.:(
