Oh.... Me!

So, Saturday's are adoption clinics and Amelia's day to go in the car with the momma.   It also means its time home with dad for me!  Dad and I were out in the yard playing fetch, it had just started to snow and it was wonderful!  Then, I brought the ball back to dad and dropped it at his feet, but dad didn't pick it up right away. So I looked down to make sure my ball was still there, it was, so I looked back at dad so he'd get the hint and throw my ball.

He didn't throw it. Instead he said "Corbin!!! IN the house NOW!!" I wasn't too happy but I went in the house and dad started fussing over me big time. That's when I realized there was a lot of blood. Dad wrapped my foot up real good to stop the bleeding and called the momma.  Good thing she was on her way home! Once she got home, off to the emergency vet we went. My vet office was having their Christmas party, if I were invited, none of this would have happened!

So the momma and Heather took me to the emergency vet. I had ripped my toenail out of my toe! So, the nice vet lady ripped the rest of my nail out and wrapped my footie up real good! Then she gave me a shot of some happy dog drugs.

Per doctors orders, I was to keep my bandage on for 48 hours, stay calm and no activities.  BORING. 

I thinks momma spiked my creamy cheeses....

It was a long night... dad was out plowing, we got 12 inches of snow!!! I was up every hour... I just wasn't comfortable and if I wasn't sleeping, neither was the momma!

Yesterday the momma,  Amelia and I spent the day snowed in, catching up on some snoozes and televisions. I was still feeling the effects of my spiked cream cheeses

But, the momma enjoyed my extra snuggles.  

 Feeling a little better today, but the momma had to leave for the workplace. So, I'm home with Amelia, testing my inner strength to not rip off my bandage!

Wish me luck!!!


  1. Oooh. Corbin - you gotta not do that sort of thing - not only does it freak out the humans, but it severely limits the potential for snow zoomies! At least you're getting spiked cream cheese, but that's still not as good as snow zoomies. Heal quick!

  2. Are the good stuff - spiked cheese....much better then that spoonful of sugar thing. Now Corbie....come closer and listen, ripping out of toe nails is not a good don't do it again! And leave that bandage alone

  3. Corbin, to know you is to love you! I'm glad the wonky cleared up and hopefully your toe area is on the mend. I loved (and nodded) this part:..."and if I wasn't sleeping, neither was the momma".

  4. Dude! Keep the bandage on... make sure you do some limpy waking so the momma feels sorry for you and give you extra treats!

  5. Oh Corbin! You just HAD to make things more exciting for your momma and dad, didn't you?? But just think of this as an opportunity to show Santa what a grreat dog you are by resisting the urge to tear off that bandage. You'll have LOTS AND LOTS of extra presents for that.

  6. Ouch! We hope your toe heals quickly for you, Corbin! Twelve inches of snow would be so much fun to play in! We got snow but it's all coated with ice. YUK!

    Love ya lots♥

  7. Hurley did the exact same thing to himself last year but he says playing fetch is a much cooler way to injure one's self than getting caught on a dresser drawer in the middle of the night. Hope you recover quickly!

  8. Oh no! Heal quickly, dear Corbin!

    Monty and Harlow

  9. Oh you poor baby. Hopefully Santy brings you extra stuff

  10. Good Luck Corbin. Sometimes being good is the hardest thing to do.
    Love Noodles

  11. No way that bandage is on when the momma gets home from the workplace! We know you, Corbin!, no bloods on the carpet!!

  12. Oh Corbin!! Dude, you gots to be extra carefuls. Them toes don't grow on trees, ya know!

  13. We thought Amelia might be coming back home with the Momma...BOL!

    Sorry you have an ouchie on your foot. It sounds VERY painful.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

  14. Oh, Corbin! Good grief, fella! If it isn't one thing it's another!

    Hope your paw heals fast - leave that bandage on! :)

  15. OUCH, Corbin! Hope you heal up super quick.

  16. Ouchie bigtime - we hope your foot is doing much better today. YOu are very good to leave that bandage on - Mom says we would not be able to resist:)

    Now about that snow, could you spare a couple of inches for us?

  19. Ouch, that's no fun at all, torn nails are just plain awful. I hope you're feeling better soon and can have some zoomies in the snow!
