There is much more to this story, but to make it short, we ended up taking her to the vet this afternoon where they cut/ripped off the remaining nail and wrapped her paw. Below is the result:
My poor little love :( She's limping around the house... in a cute but sad way. They didn't give any pain meds or anitbiotics. I wish they would have, she is favoring it more now than she did when it first happened. Oh well, I suppose dogs have lived in the wild centuries ago and survived such injuries!
Also, last night the development directly behind my in-laws had four houses catch on fire. From what I heard and saw on the news the houses were mostly destroyed. Luckily there were no casualties, except possibly a dog and one person was sent to the local hospital for burns. Please keep these families in your thoughts. The cause is thought to have been a propane tank that blew up in one of the homes.
On a happier note, K(my hubs) and I are finally going back to Happy Valley! He graduated in '07 from Penn State and I followed him, after completing three years there, and then went on to nursing school. We have been wanting to go back and even made reservations once, but we never followed through. So, PSU HERE WE COME!
