I got an ouchie last week. Look at my poor toe...

The peeps shaved the hairs off my toe and pulled a nasty grass seed out of it.

They took me to the dogtor, who had given me some tablets to take to make it go back to normal size.

You know what the worst part is...?

Not the sore toe...

Not the shaved foot...

Not the trip to the dogtor...

I've missed out on FIVE DAYS worth of walks because of it...

This makes me a sad Dougall...


  1. Hey Dougall! First, let me say, for some reason, the peeps just found LOTS of comments from you in Our spam folder. I HATE THAT. You're not spam! So, thanks for writing and sorry We didn't see your notes.

    NOW. About that ouchie. THAT HURTS! I hope it's better - all better - so you can walk around again.

    Arooo! Stuart

    1. Oh, I thought that might have been where my comments were going...

      I hope my toe gets better soon too!

  2. Oh man, Dougall, that's so sad!! I hate missing out on walks because of illnesses!! :-( Boo! Hopefully your toe will be almost better and you can get on with enjoying your outside time!!

  3. Ohhhhhhhhh, I can't look, thats a bad place for an ouchie, you take it easy and play it up big time for some treats, milk it for a long time. If you need training on that, write to Bites he can carry on for the longest time over nothing!!!

  4. oh no, poor baby, hoping it heels soon and your back to walking

  5. Aw, that stinks! Feel better soon!

  6. Oh, Dougall, that sucks, dude. Wells, since you can't go for your walkies, MILK IT for all it's worth! Looks all sad and pathetic, and at least you'll get some extra biscuts out of it.


  7. We KNOW about those grass seeds....there should be a law..! Five days without walks...bummer!

    We hope you're up, running around by now.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

    We have Stuart's address if you want to send a card.

  8. Oh dude, DAT looks awfully painful! Maybe your peeps will take you on a piggie back ride.

    I hope you gets betters real quick.


  9. OMD-we have those grass seeds here also. They're called foxtails. I had one and the (former) vet butchered the job big time and I almost died. He overmedicated me and I had liver problems and I had to have water injected under my skin (twice) to super-hydrate me so I could pee the medications out. ARRRRGH-bad memories. You take care of yourself.

  10. Awww - if it makes you feel any better - I haven't had time to walk Blueberry because of the puppy. I know - I am a horrible dog mom. But I just couldn't bring myself to crate him yet again to take her out. But we have 5 blissful days of no work so I will be able to divide my time more equally between Blueberry and Linus. Until he has all of his shots - he cannot go anywhere, hence the no walks.

    Hopefully you will get back to your normal walking schedule soon so you don't get the cabin fever! Gosh - a grass seed did that kind of damage???? That's just crazy! Hope it is better soon buddy! :)

  11. Oh Dogall you poor thing! Five days of walks???? Horrible stuff. I hope your first walk back is an extra long and fantastic one!



  12. We're glad that you are okay and hope you're back on normal walks soon!

  13. Oh, we know what kind of grass got you. We are so sorry you missed all those walks! Hope your owie is better real fast!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  14. We've heard about those nasty grasses before, Dougall. We hope your toe feels better soon!

    Love ya lots,
    Mitch and Molly

  15. We hope that mends pretty quickly, life passes much to fast for you to miss it for too long! :-)

  16. Oh poor baby, hope your toe feels better
    Benny & Lily

  17. Dougall, I am so sorry that you have a booboo paw. I will cross paws for you so that you feel better soon. I would miss the walkies also, I love them.

    Happy Thanksgiving

    Loveys Sasha

  18. Oh no...shame!!! We hope your paw is all healed...try not to lick it too much - even though it soothes us to do so.

    Make sure your mom compensates for the lack of walks with extra cuddles, treats and maybe a new toy.

    Wally & Sammy

  19. Oh no Dougall pal. We hope your ouchie has healed now and you are back walking and romping. I got a grass seed in my ear once. I had to have saw-gery. Healing paw sent to you from us. Have a terrific Tuesday.
    Best wishes Molly

  20. Dougall, we hope that ouchie is better soon. We wouldn't like to go without walks.

    Lilly, Piper, Ivy and The Sweet Buglets

  21. Where's the toe? We wanted to see it but couldn't. :(

    Don't worry, we still love you no matter what.

    Huggies and Cheese,


  22. No walkies....so sad!! I hope your ouchie gets much better really soon!


  23. Oh no! That is not good! I hope you heal quickly, my friend!

  24. Oh Dougall, that's so sad. We hope you get double walks when you're ready for them.

    Oink oink,
    Katie and Coccolino the mini pig

  25. Get well Buddy. Try real hard not to lick it. Licking may bring on the cone of shame. Just saying.

  26. Aww poor Dougall. We send you hugs and slobber to make you feel better. Hope you get to walk soon mate. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

  27. Oh I feel for you Dougall ~ I stepped on a bee this summer and my toe doubled in size and I lost the furs on it. You got to take care of your paws.
    Thanks for being a friend
    Sweet William The Scot

  28. Poor Dougall Dog!!! We hope you are all better and that easy harness helps you walk like a champ.
