Shoe of Shame

I have cracked paw disease. Imagine not being able to walk without pain. It’s been very good the past few years because I’ve been taking a daily statin pill that addresses this and my pads on the bottom of my feet have been normal. Last night, there was some irritation between the pads in my front left foot and I started licking it. They were watching humans doing stupid human tricks in London. Then They noticed I was really licking plus there was spots of blood on the sheets and the wet spot on the bed was the KylAtlantic Ocean. Oh no, booty time.

They put Bag Balm on it then encased it in a booty. I’m so mortified, I can’t even look at you in the eye and that’s not like me at all

Now that it has been posted, I’m afraid of what my friends will say.

Kenzie update


We’re taking Kenzie off the critical list for the time being. The last three mornings he ate all his food. In the evenings, it’s been the same few tablespoons worth so he’s still on the concerned list! No, Kenzie, you can’t run the marathon in the Olympics.

    Pees; the green bean sales are out of control!!!!

  4. Better a bootie than MESSED UP PAWS my friend Kyla. Just don’t confuse the booty with food. That’d be bad. Really bad.

    Now. On to Mr. Kenzie. You give him a big ‘ole pat on the head, K? Sooooo glad to see he’s EATING. I can’t imagine not eating. Really. It’s only 2:00 PM here and I’ve already had breakfast, a pre-lunch snack and half of my dinner for lunch.

    Really, peeps? And you wonder why I have a weight problem????


  5. I get cracks in the first toe pads on both feet because of the way I walk. Lee puts Corona on my toes pads. I love when she rubs it in because I know it makes me feel better. I like your lttle boot Glad Kenzie is being upgraded.

    • Happy paws? I’m not a quarterback. Oops, I just realized you are Australian and wouldn’t get the American football reference.

  7. We won’t say anything about the….um…footwear…how embarrassing. However, if it helps….

    Good work, Kenzie, keep it up! Paws still crossed. Hummmmm, did you get cracked paws from crossing them so much?

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

  8. I do cross paws for others but that’s not the cause of this. I can’t blame anyone else.
