life with four doggies...

Wednesday was a wild day.

A nasty cold finally caught me. Ugh! Went to Walmart to get o.j., cold meds., and Airborne...

Then I had to take one of my younger pups to the vets.

She evidently ripped the pad on her dew claw. ouch and ewww!

Poor thing, she looked so pathetic. But, she was a good girl, even when they removed her entire dew claw and pad.

When we left the vet's, she had on one of those plastic cones on her head and her paw was all bandaged up and she cowered and limped. She couldn't figure out how to raise her head with the cone thingie, so would would just stand in the middle of the floor with her head bent down and the cone flush to the carpet. It was pathetic.

I felt so sorry for her, I finally took the cone off and vowed to watch her so she wouldn't lick the bandaged paw.

I'm so proud of her. She hasn't bothered the paw at all. all evening all night and today...

You know sometimes it would be nice if God put a big plastic cone on our heads to help us stay on track. Keeping us away from the temptation of nibbling and licking our sin spots.

But, amazingly He trusts us with out the cone on our head.

Here's to another day of not being tempted to nibble and lick.

Sit, Ubu, sit. (Arf) Good dog.
