Roxy is mad at me because I’m making her wear a sock again. I noticed last night that she was obsessively licking one of her rear paws, but there didn’t seem to be anything wrong with it when I checked it out, and it didn’t seem to be hurting her, so I left it alone. Then this morning I heard the licking noise again (horrible noise), and when I got her head away from the paw, I could see that she’d managed to lick ALL OF THE FUR off two of her toes. It’s kind of gross. And again, except for the hairless part, nothing looks weird, nothing looks irritated, there’s nothing stuck in her paw….her nails could use a trim, but I’m fairly certain that’s not what’s bothering her. So I wrestled her into a sock and used electrical tape to hold it on. Now she’s pouting.
Riley is jealous because Roxy got to sit in my lap while I put the sock on her. All Riley has ever wanted is to be a lap dog. All 80 pounds of him.
