Ouch

The last two days Reilly hasn't wanted to go walking, weird! Then last night the lady noticed that Reilly and I were licking his foot, and licking his foot, and licking his foot. Yup, I was helping, the lady thought it was gross. Then she looked at his foot and noticed one of his toes was all swollen and red and yucky. So off to the vet Reilly went, and it turns out he broke his nail off right at the quick, and it had gotten infected and was really, really painful. So right now he is getting his toenail cut off and when he comes home he is going to have a big old band aid on his foot. I'll try to get the lady to take some photos of it.

OMG, poor Reilly! This sounds painful! Does this also mean that if our mom cuts our nails too short they could get infected too? Please say yes so she never ever does it again for the rest of our lives!
We hope Reilly feels better soon!

Love ya lots

Ouch!!! I can feel your pain. My nails grow so fast that Momma calls them my talons. And she worries about me doing the same thing.
