Here we are. I look good, right?? There was another doggie there that wasn't put any weight on one of his paws either. We found out he tore his ACL when he tried to jump off the bed! Ouch!
Turns out I have some allergies, and I had been licking and licking and licking a rash in between my paw pads and caused a little irritation. So all weekend long I had to lay down and RELAX. It was so darn hard!
I have some pre-posted posts (you know what I mean) for this week, but know I am laying low, keeping my paws clean and being served like the princess I am! Have a good week folks!
Oh dear, we hope you feel better soon. Our Norbert had a similar issue once. He scraped his paw pad at a concrete dog park and licked and licked it until he had a big ouchie and was limpingReplyDelete
Play it for all it's worth Finnacles!!! Of coarse now the folks have to work out what you are allergic too!ReplyDelete
Awww, sorry to hear you're not at your best, Finn. Taking it easy is hard work but very good for you so you do what the doctor ordered, okay? We want you to feel better soon. :)ReplyDelete
Hope you feel better soon! Milk it for all it's worthReplyDelete
Paw licking is better than nail biting! Be careful, they'll put a sock on you ;)ReplyDelete
We hope your itchies heal soon, Finn. Maybe you could get some booties to wear.ReplyDelete

Finn, we're sorry you got an ouchie from your allergies. We hope you're feeling better soon.ReplyDelete
I hope your paw will be much better soon!
The itchies are not funny, right?
Kisses and hugs
My dad's beagle has allergies too, and he chews on his paws.ReplyDelete
I hope your paw is feeling better, Finn. Be sure to take advantage of all the extra loves and treats you're sure to get at a time like this.
We hope you feel better soon! Allergies are no fun!ReplyDelete
You take good care of those paws. And no more licking...ok!ReplyDelete
Glad it is not serious!! Take care of yourself!!ReplyDelete

You do look beautiful. Hope you heal up real soon. Make sure they cater to your every need AND want.ReplyDelete
Oh Finn, I am so glad it is nothing more serious. (Not that allergies and rashes aren't serious) but at least it wasn't a broken bone.ReplyDelete
Feel better, Finn! I hope you get lots of treats. :)ReplyDelete
What could have caused the allergies? Poor Finn. We hope you feel better soon!ReplyDelete

Oh know! Not allergies! We know how tough it can be to not touch your itchies Finn. Lay low and get better sweetie! :)ReplyDelete
Finn! Get well soon! Do they know if it's a food allergy or what kind of allergy it is. I hope whatever kind of allergy it is -- that they find a way to get rid of whatever is making you lick your paw. Get well soon! I know laying around the house doing nothing is hard work! Humans just don't seem to realize how hard that is!ReplyDelete
Oh No Finn! I'm sorry that you have some issues with your paw! We know how that feels! Hope you get lots of rest and your paw feels better very soon!ReplyDelete
Fell better soon!ReplyDelete
Sorry to hear you have not been well BUT on the upside (and we like that you saw the silver lining) you are being waited upon as all loved furkids should be!ReplyDelete
Feel better soon!
Wally & Sammy
Oh dear!! Get better soon!! Allergies are no fun!! :-(
Love, Raelyn.... And Rose, my BEAUTIFULLY UNIQUE "Mystery Dog"!!
I do hope you get to feeling better soon and your paw heals up! Trudie licks her paws everynight before she goes to sleep, I will need to tell her what happened to you so she stops it...also mom told her daughter who is going to have a girl grandmonster about yur name, and she turned her nose up...mom thought it would be cute...she didn't ......I am sorry I thought she would choose Finn......
Get better soon!
Finn bless your little sweet itchy paw...we hope your meds cure it lickety split and you are up and about soon. Mom prepares my week's post ahead too so lots of times I'm actually sleeping when I say I'm jumping MOLReplyDelete

Ouch! Keep taking it easy!ReplyDelete
Hope your paw feels better really soon!!!ReplyDelete
Maybe you can help me out? I CONSTANTLY lick my paws and "bite" my back (it's not fleas) and so do you think I have an allergy?ReplyDelete
I hope you is doing better!
Finn, I am sorry to read that. I am also a paw licker and bite at myself. I have all kinds of allergies and have to take benedryl, but it doesn't help much. I hope you are soaking your paws and restingReplyDelete
Hey Finny. Are you all better now? I caught Buchi licking his little boy area a little too much and we had him use the cone of shame. Good that the vetty didn't have you wear one.ReplyDelete
By the way, I was hoping you could do me a favor and help me reach out to your bloggie friends for the giveaway I have posted in mydogslove.me. This will be very much appreciated.
Huggies and Cheese,
It's definitely that time of year! Wilson licks and chews his front legs a lot, it always starts around the end of July into August, and goes away after a good frost. Fortunately he has broken the skin. It went away while we were in Myrtle Beach last week so I know it's something local.ReplyDelete
Hope Finn is feeling better asap!
We hope you're starting to feel better sweet Finn!ReplyDelete
I had the same thing happen to me when we were in Florida a while back. I got a bacterial infection and had to take yucky pills and even wear a sock! Hey a sock is better than the cone of shame any day!!
Sorry you gots a hurt paw Finn. I'm sure it was hard for you to sit still. I tend to lick my paws excessively too. Mom has an anti-fungal spray she puts on them.ReplyDelete
Just catching up on my blog reading and am sorry to hear about your ACL and your itchy paws - here's some instructions for Mom and Dad to help you with that issue Finn ... first - have them cut away as much of the fur between the pads of your paws as possible with some blunt-end scissors - this will cut down on the moisture that gets stuck in there - don't worry Finn - it doesn't hurt ... next we need to kill that bacteria and/or yeast that has a nice little warm home there - plus if your little paws smell sweet - that's a sure sign something is going on between those cute little pads ... the simplest thing to do is to put Gold Bond Medicated Powder between the pads several times per day - this will keep them dry ... here are two topical sprays which can be ordered on line - Vet's Best Natural Health HOT SPOT SPRAY which is tea tree oil and aloe this will take longer to heal the feet - the other is PET'S BEST HEALING AND PROTECTION SPRAY which is an antimicrobial/antiseptic spray - this works like a charm - go to www.vetsbest.com for the tea tree spray and go to www.qbased.com for the Healing spray.ReplyDelete
Keep me posted - Katie
Oh gosh, that does not sound like much fun at all, but thank goodness it wasn't YOUR ACL. Yikes. I sure hope you're all better by now.ReplyDelete
