Floydie's Owie...

On Tuesday, Floyd and I were very excited. My little mate Dylan was coming to visit.

He's grown a lot since I last posted about him. He goes to "big school" now, but it's Easter holiday time, and he needed somepawdy to look after him while his mum was a work.

So, naturally, being the helpful boy I am I put up my paw and said I'd keep an eye on him for the day.

Well, he wasn't here very long before there was a DISASTER! Floyd and I ran outside to bark at the postie (I swear, we only took our eyes off Dylan for a MINUTE). I'm not sure what happened, but the next thing I knew, there was blood everywhere!

I dragged Floyd inside and the peep took a look at him and found this...

She quickly rang the dogtor to get Floyd's claw looked at as soon as possible!!

I was very worried about my big brother (I know, he is a PAIN, but I still love him... Most of the time). Lucky Dylan was here to keep me company...

He likes to pull funny faces, what a clown!
He sat by my side the whole time, till Floyd came home.

I SWEAR that isn't a look of terror on Dylan's face! He was GIGGLING!! I was giving him thank you kisses, for looking after me! (Funny, wasn't I meant to look after him?)

Floyd came home with a bright blue bandage, the dogtor said he was lucky, he hadn't broken his toe, just his dew claw, which they pulled out then wrapped everything up. It should all grow back like normal.

Floyd was a little sore, and spent the rest of the day doing this...

I hope he feels better soon... Although, I won't lie. I am enjoying the more subdued version of Floyd... Just a little...


  1. OMD O M D Floydie.... Buddy that looks SOOOOOO sore and awful.
    We are sooooooo sorry that you had this terrible Boo Boo. Did you get a treat at the Dogtor's?
    OH this is terrible.. How will you Dig and do FUN stuffs with Dylan?
    We don't have Dew Claws... beclaws mom says that she was afraid of somethingy like that happening to one of us.
    We want to Wish YOU and DOUGALL and your peeps a very Happy Hoppy Easter. And we HOPE that you get LOTS of stuffs in your baskets.

  2. Poor Floydie. We're glad it wasn't anything too bad, and Posties have to be barked at. Roxy is the only one with dew claws around here.

    Speedy recovery to Floyd. Hope you're enjoying a great weekend.

    XXXOOO Bella & Roxy

  6. Oh Floydie!!!! Oh noes!! That looks quite painful dude! Butts I knows you're brave and that you didn't bite the dogtor or anythings..right? hehehe

  7. Floyd is a boxer and they're almost as tough as terriers. That is unless he's called Pretty Boy Floyd.

  8. Oh buddy, I had a nail ripped out awhile back. The ONLY treatment is bacon. Nothing else will dull the pain!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

    PS - We decided to have a drawing tomorrow for my date!

  9. Owieeeeeeee! I have to think that hurt so, so much. I can't believe after PULLING the nail out, it will just grow back. Dogs are amazing! I sure hope he's going to be OK - the postie will be back and wonder why you aren't there barking at him!

  10. Aww... poor Floyd! We hope he's feeling much better soon...

    Love from Solo and Krissy xxx

  11. Yikes poor you Floyd. We send healing vibes and POTP. Hope it grows back quick and you can get back to lolling about and mischief making. Have a super Saturday.
    Best wishes Molly

  12. Oh my cats Floyd that looks most painful! Thank goodness Dougall was there to get your peeps for you. Oh Dylan is adorable I bet you had fun!
    Madi your bfff

  13. Feel better Floyd. Shelby feels your pain. Her dewclaw owie wasn't as bad, but she went to the vet to get it fixed. We are glad that Dougall had company while you were being helped.

  14. Floyd, I hope you feel better and take it easy. I hope you got lots of treats.

    Happy Hoppy Easter to all of you.

    Loveys Sashatail

  15. Aww, Floydie, sending you slobbery smooches to help you feel better. No mate, they're from me, Stella, not Rory hehe. Hope your foot is better soon. We gotta say, it was probably worth it cause running up to the letterbox, barking at the Postie, is one of life's great pleasures isn't it! Take is easy and Happy Easter to you all.
    No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

  16. Oh poor Floyd. I'm sure you did a great job watching over him but things happen.

  17. Hope Floyd is feeling better soon!

  18. EEK! Poor Floyd. I sure hope he feels better soon. A subdued Floyd must be pretty interesting :-)

  19. Dougall you and your buddy Dylan look like you were meant to be together. Boy and Dog. Floyd must be programmed to be doomed. First he hurts his tail now he hurts his dew claw. Maybe the carpet is getting back for his chewing the hole. You know what they say about Charma.
    Thanks for being a friend

  20. Oh poor Floydie xxx
