Choppy tore her dew claw for the second time recently. Here she is, all bandaged up on her way home from the vet. I suspect the happy look on her face is because she was heading away from the much-disliked vet.


A close-up of her bandage. I think it says “no chem,” but I thought it said “no chew.” I was very confused because, as far as I know, dogs can’t read. I wasn’t sure who the message was for. Perhaps there are people out there who like to chew on dog bandages? (That is something I am definitely NOT looking up on the Internet.)


And, for those who wonder, she is all healed up now! Her dew claw will grow back, so we can go through all this a third time at some point in the future.
