one girl's trendy dog
Poor Dooley, my wee one. Something clogged up the fur between the pads of one of his paws and it was irritating him to the point that he'd licked his skin raw! The resident caretakers got him cleaned up and dressed the wound (Jayne, you would be proud!) with antibiotic ointment, a bandage, wrap, and then a sock to keep it all intact. Ha! The little rascal had other ideas. We were mainly concerned that he would just keep on licking (which he has, he's compulsive that way), but a good night's sleep and a lazy day yesterday has made a difference. The sock, which I think he wore for about ten minutes, is a Christmas one with dogs on it. Just another trendy member of the family!
