After making my own icing sugar, using fructose and corn flour, I am never going to buy powdered sugar again. This is really so easy to make, and means storing one less pantry item.
I am the type of person who can handle most cuts and bruises. I have had some serious injuries along the way, and have handled treating all of them with ease. And when people close to me have lacerations I don’t mind being a wound nurse. I got a lot of practice with Maxine, our Boxer, when she injured her paw. And then a little more when Dave had a work related injury. So you would expect I could cope with the idea of my dog’s nail having been torn out. Well, you would be wrong! This morning while I was getting dressed she came limping towards me. All I saw was her claw at an impossible angle. And I could not think of how I would deal with this without taking her to the vet. The first thing I did was finish putting on my socks and shoes, as one does.
After that I put my glasses on 🤣 which always helps. And then I opened the curtain to let some natural light into our bedroom. Molly was not complaining or crying as I lifted her onto my lap. I turned the bedside lamp on to take a closer and proper look. And immediately breathed a sigh of relief. Somehow, while licking her paws, she had crossed her one toe over the other. I uncrossed it and berated her, while being grateful that it was nothing serious! I do know she had no clue what I was saying, but it felt good to talk to her about my near panic attack. Has your dog ever done something similar?
