We had our only decent snow of the season last night and so I thought I'd let Jes enjoy it. First, he bolts straight for the lake. I figured that would happen and I brought towels for that. What I didn't plan on was him ripping a toenail off. Luckily, it wasn't the whole nail, but it was about a quarter of an inch behind the quick. It came off cleanly and probably due to the snow it stopped bleeding pretty quick. It looks painful, but he wasn't limping and wanted to keep playing. I brought him home anyways, figured it wasn't good to have all the dirt getting into it.
It doesn't seem to be bothering him at all, but man it looks painful. I'm pretty surprised he let me put a band-aid on and he's not even bothering it. There's enough of the nail left to use one of those small band-aids (like the ones for warts) to cover the quick and sticky part is on his toenail.
Poor Jes finally gets to play in the snow and gets hurt right away. I'm glad it's not bothering him though hopefully it heals up quickly without him opening it back up again.
How much snow did you end up getting? We got about 7-8" I would guess more or less in areas as it was really windy so it drifted a lot.
We ended up getting somewhere between 6-8". It's really hard to tell because of all the blowing and drifting of snow. We have a drift on the side of the house that comes up to my waist, but up front you can see grass.
Ooh, that hurt. Hope it's better soon. Hub clipped Tucker's nails today, and accidentally got too much of one; poor Tucker was bleeding a lot. We packed it with flour, and that stopped the bleeding. Luckily, I had a nice marrow bone to give him, so he'd stay down awhile.
