Poor, Poor Chili

Poor little Chili is not panting because she is so hot; she is in pain and stressed. She was playing fetch the ball with Mike when she had an accident. The ball landed in the patio wire chair; she found it though. She jumped in the chair and got the ball, but when she was jumping out her toe nail hung in the wire frame. Ouch! She ripped the whole toe nail out of her toe. I went home right quick and got the styptic powder to stop the bleeding. Mike put ice in a towel and wrapped it around her foot to help the swelling.

She sat in Mike's lap for awhile and got pampered. Poor little thing.

This is the picture of her nail that was ripped out.

Now four day later this is what her toe looks like. She wasn't eager for me to take the picture, of course she doesn't like having her picture taken at any time. She doesn't limp, but it is still a little swollen.

Ouch. Definitely not worth it even if the sympathy flows from the humans.

Ouch! Poor Chili!

Dogs are pretty amazing - she'll be playing ball again before you know it.

Youch!! That must be so painful! Get better soon Chili, hope the swelling subsides soon and you will be up and about again soon!

Hopefully she heals quickly!
I think animals are pretty much able to bounce back from such things, but it's still stressful!

Poor Chili. She is so brave to go for the ball, never knowing what was going to happen and just going for it!

Nothing like family to comfort you when your goals come with a little pain, we say.
