Fridays with Frederick

"Someone" barked empty threats of ripping every pillow in the house to shreds if I didn't post these pictures of him. There was something about a need to get sympathy from others due to the fact that he doesn't get enough of that at home and then I tuned out and forgot to let him back in the house after letting him out to go crap on the other apartment complex's lawn. I think it was the next morning we heard him scratching at the door with a dead duck in his mouth. OK none of that was true, but he did rip his extra toenail right off while running in the park the other day. Let me repeat that, he ripped his toenail off from running in the park. He ran in the park and some how ripped his toenail off. He came running back to us with a grin from ear to ear and blood dripping down his leg. He didn't even notice what happened, thankfully, but it wouldn't stop bleeding for quite awhile. I was nervous because I've heard horror stories about dogs ripping those extra dangling toe things off and bleeding to death. I'm glad it was just the nail but man that nail was all of the way gone. He's got a nice little hole that we have been privileged to nervously watch over like first time parents. That bandage lasted roughly 6 hours till he got sick of it and chewed it off. He's too active to have something like happen. If he would just sit still and look pretty like a nice little pomeranian then I wouldn't have to worry about getting blood all over the house.
hyper dog = blurry pics
if my dad sees this post he' s going to laugh at it
he thinks dogs should all be like rough-and-tough cow dogs

Poor little guy. Glad I've never ripped a toenail off running in the park, that sounds horrible!

Holy - that would be enough to send me into full blown panic mode! I have a hard time not thinking of those little things as fingers...
