feeling like a bad mom
Well, last night I took DJango out for last call. I closed the screen door to keep the bugs from getting into the house and as DJango finished doing his thing he ran up the deck stairs and right into the screen door. Didn't realize I had closed it. Bounced pretty hard off the screen. As soon as we got in the house, I noticed a small trail of blood, picked him and his back paw was bleeding a bit.
I got a warm wash cloth and tried to clean it, couldn't tell if it was the pad or nail. He didn't seem to bothered by it. We went to bed, got up this morning and went for our usual walk. All was good. Came home and soaked his paws in warm water to make sure they were clean. When i was getting ready to head out for the day, I poked a little bit by his back paw to see if I could see anything and he growled at me while pulling his leg towards his body. Obviously it hurts. I got him off his pillow to go outside to pee and he couldn't put any weight on his back paw.
Of course i feel terrible about this, it's my fault he ran into the screen door. Taking him to the vet at 2:00 hopefully it's just a bruised paw or maybe a broken fingernail.
