I made an emeregency dash to the vet yesterday because the humans noticed that I was limping and walking around with 3 legs. When the humans first noticed my limp, paranoia set in and calls were made to the regular vetinary that I go to. They were worried that I had injured my 11 year old bones while leaping off the bed. Other than the limping, I was behaving normally and eating ok.

After giving the whole family a scare, the vet announced that I was limping because my paw was sore... Ummmm.. and it was sore because **ahem**I had been licking and chewing on it**ahem**. When the humans found out, they were giving me the evil eye and dagger stares, which I tried my best to ignore. Anyway, since we were already there, the vet gave me a body check and said that I am doing well for an old man. In fact I had even put on weight, 1kg in fact. The vet also dispensed some tips on what they should feed a senior doggie like me, and I think I like what I heard!

Ok now I need to go and make it up to the humans for giving them the scare...

hahahaha... Jack did the same thing last month! HC gave him a painkiller that she took from the vet long time ago, thinking it was his arthritis... before she realised it was because he chewed the paw till it became red and raw!!

You had me worried there! Thank goodness it's nothing too serious.

Maybe you can ask the humans for extra treats to keep your mouth busy? Yah, I think that is an awesome idea.

Hey! A sore paw is no small thing. Good for your humans for having you checked out. Feel better.

Congratulations on winning the book prize. Maybe you'll get some of those yummy treats. Are there special tips for humans on giving belly rubs?
