Live Long and Prosper!
Mom says she is taking me (Reilly) to the vets tomorrow - a few months back she noticed this weird growth on my front left foot pad (it almost looked like a nail growing out of it). Mr Vet said it was a callous and wasn't causing any problems so we would just keep an eye on it.
Yesterday I didn't want to walk down to the mail box with her - something I ALWAYS do and Mom noticed I was holding my paw up. She called Mr Vet straight away but it was his day off and he is in surgery all day today so the earliest we can see him is first thing tomorrow. I must admit it has got very ouchie and now I can hardly walk on it and when Mom checked the callous had changed color (it is now black!), shape and size and was bleeding a bit. Admittedly I have been licking at it A LOT - but hey it hurts - so what is a guy to do?
She is also worried because my toes on that foot have suddenly spread too. Mom says it looks like I am doing the Vulcan "live long and prosper" sign - what ever that means!!!! Hopefully Mr Vet can figure out what is going on tomorrow.
