Poor Miller.....

Im on vacation right now, and today, Miller and I where outside playing, and then he just stoped, lifted up his paw, and refused to put it down on the ground, so I picked him up and looked at his paw. I didnt see anything wrong with it untill I pulled back his paw hair and saw a huge, and when i say huge, i mean huge thorn stuck in his paw. I called our vet back home, and asked her what we should do, and she said to try and hold him down and take it out. An hour later and it was still deep in his paw..... so I finaly decided to take him to the vet, the only vet near by was at a vet clinic in petsmart of all places, so he wanted to try to go down and walk on his paw to see the other dogs... but anyways the vet took him and got the splinter out, and miller got to pick out a toy, and we went home, that thorn was all the way in his paw, and it was about 1.5 cm long, poor Miller. He is now laying beside me with his bandaged paw, and i have to put neosporn on it for a few days.

He is getting alot of extra loving! Im shure he was quite happy, even with the thorn in his foot, because he never gets human food ever, and he got a huge peice of turkey to keep him calm so he wouldn't walk on it to keep it from going further into his foot
