Sharkey Has a Special Bootie

Posted by Sharkey

As you know, we Frenchies are going through a rough patch.  Francesca will have her lid sewn shut for another couple of weeks, which means that she’ll also have her eye button and cone collar.  My dewclaw issue is healing well but I still need to have my paw bandaged, which is an issue if it’s wet outside.

I'm getting restless, Francesca!  What do you say to a romp outside?  Maybe run around with the donks or rile up the chickens?

Sharkey, it rained last night and the grass is wet.  You know you're not supposed to get your bandage wet!

Don't worry, Franny.  I've got it covered!  Haven't you noticed my purple paw?

I have this special latex bootie that covers my bandage so it won't get wet outside!  Let's try it out!

Are you coming, G.K.?

You two go ahead.  I'm quite comfortable staying dry inside!

I was going to say it looks a bit silly, Sharkey, but who am I to talk!

See?  The rubber cover goes just high enough that the freshly wet grass won't disturb my bandage!

Now, let's go get into trouble.  I think I spot a squirrel over there!

  • Good Morning F & S

    I can just see it now both of you getting ready to chase a squirrel and it takes one look your way and starts to laugh so hard it falls over. The lampshade and purple sock frenchies. Girls, don't waste your time chasing varmits rest you need to get rid of those silly outfits. Sharkey you need to relax with your paw elevated and Franny don't take any chances of a stick or something scratching you in the face! Do I need to come up there and be Super Nurse?

    Happy Birthay Cora Belle I hope you have the best birthday ever :)

    I'm happy to hear my little friend Nicole is coming over tonight. I'm sure we'll do some swimming and eat snacks which is my favorite part of the visit. That is also why I'm staying positive about Super Nanny coming to watch us because Nicole comes too which = snacks :)

  • Good morning ladies,
    First things first..HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEAR CORA BELLE!
    I know you'll have a great day!
    Ladies, you must be healing 'cause you're getting around really well. I wonder if Frannie will need sunglasses when her eye gets unbuttoned? It's been in the dark for so long! Mimi was telling me a long story about her Sheltie, Rocky. When he was a pup he took a mighty jump and broke his rear leg. He had to have his cast wrapped in plastic wrap cause of the snow. It made for really tricky potty time! He really needed a purple booty!
    Have a great day everybody, it's quiet & back to normal here.
    Your pal,
    Rebel

  • I'm back! When I get the error 404 message, I just click on the "back" arrow icon and the DW page comes back.

  • I must say, Sharkey, the purple paw cover could become trendy and a style statement, particularly if applied to all four paws in a colorful pattern. Think about it - protective paw covers in various colors, for the everyday walked dog! Hmm...could be lucrative...I think I just saw Martha's face light up. Later!

  • Good morning everyone,
    You poor girls. Your boo boo's are not a quick fix, are they? Well, hang in there and before you know it you will be chasing squirrels and doing chores around the farm again. Martha had booties like that on her show when I won the Breed at Westminster. I put all four on my feet and paraded around the studio. None of the other chows would do it. Big babies. But, I thought I looked rather stylish. I had green booties. I remember at the time Karen said she wished she would have had them for Cyrus, my cousin who was burned badly in the fire. His pads of his feet were severely burned too and Dr. Karin grew the skin back but he had to have protection on his feet all the time. He wore these real big black boots but your purple booties would have been just great.
    Now, on to the important business of the day.
    A member of the Glue Squad has a has a birthday today.
    HAPPY BIRTHDAY CORA-BELLE

    Maddox

  • :-) HAPPY BIRTHDAY CORA-BELLE!!! :-) wonderful that you are celebrating 16 years.... <3

    As far as Francesca and Sharkey, I feel bad the two of you are still under the Vet watch, I hope you both heal up and get better soon...and GK I have not forgotten you, I pray that you will be OK with that Lyme disease...sorry you got it!

    Lynn is so talented, she bakes doggie cookies and makes the most darling handmade cards...we have talent amongst us, even Abby making bead Bracelets.

    One of my grand-dogs a blonde Lab named Ginger gets sore paws when they hike in Colorado, she has to wear booties on all fours...too cute!

    "Everyone" have a Sun-filled day, if not sun... a pleasant day of anykind.

  • Hello Ladies & Miss Sweet 16 Cora Belle,
    Did Cora Belle get the Pumpkin Banana Biscuit recipe? Sorry, I got it on so late yesterday. But better late than never. Now, Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday Dear Cora Belle, Happy Birthday to you!!!!!! And many more!!! In case you couldn't hear it Cora Belle, I was singing it to you. It will be fun to hear of your party later.

    I love the rubber paw Sharkey, and purple, my fav. I'm with Malcolm, start a new fashion trend, so doggies don't get ick from the streets on them!!!All of you just keep having those "cc" days and heal in the nice air conditioning. It is going to be about 90 today, so hubbie and I are planting the garden. Glad things are back to normal Rebel, or should I say, Mr. Sparkle, with those nice white teeth. Have a great day all!!
    Hugs & smiles,
    Lynn

  • Hello ladies, Kirby here.
    Others can laugh about your purple foot all they want. It keeps your bandage dry; a girl has to do what a girl has to do. Right! When I had my foot bandage on and went outside in the wet, I had to put on a rubber bootie too. I looked funny, but it kept my foot dry. It also kept me from licking the bandage. Rebel, using the “back arrow” button sounds like it works for the “error 404” message but Chows don’t do “backups” very well. It’s not that we can’t see very good. It’s we don’t back down to anything or anybody. When I get the error, I’ll have Daddy push that button for me. That way I can save face by not backing up.
    Catch you later, Kirby.

  • Morning Girls, GK & Glue Squad - Sharkey, I must say very stylish with the bootie, it will definitely help to keep the bandage dry and give you the opportunity to continue checking out everything & everybody. With the wet weather recently in our area, bet Mom would try getting the booties on me but think I not!! Frannie, hope your eye is healing nicely, can't wait to get that cone off, right?? GK, hope you are feeling better.

    Happy Birthday Cora-Belle, :) wishing you a wonderful birthday and enjoyable get together with all your friends. You will have to let us know how your party went.

    Although I've investigated a few more things around the house and Daddy has caught me; I must say myself, I think I'm improving on my surroundings. Oh yes, Mom saw paper towels in the hallway the other night, oops, she wasn't suppose to see that but she wasn't toooo upset :) .

    Weather is suppose to clear later today; so may be heading outside to patrol the yard.

    Everyone have a great day.

    Till next time,
    Missy Chow
    xoxo

  • Hello Francesca, Stylish Sharkey, Lynn, Kirby, and our wonder woman Cora Belle, and all-
    What great latex booties! We will keep a look out for them since they actually stay on even for squirrel patrol! Sharkey you are my hero for doing squirrel patrol while healing. I love going after Mr. Squirrel man but the leash keeps me at bay.
    HAPPY BIRTHDAY CORA BELLE!! The belle of our daily wag group. Hope you have a wonderful time at the party and eat lots of Lynn's Warrior Prince Biscuits. Recipe looks like fun. Zoe hope you have fun swimming and eating snacks with Nicole. It is 70 already here so quite warm.. Party and bark for our buddy Cora Belle! Barks and high paws to all.. Abby

  • I couldn't resist it cuties pies! I had to pin picture #7 - both of you are so adorable. Hurry up and feel better so you can start chasing those squirrels again!

  • HAPPY HAPPY SWEET 16 CORA-BELLE!!!!! :smile: So sweetie what kind of car did James and Lucinda get you today? :wink: I hope you get lots of belly rubs and yummy treats today .

    I didn't mean to snicker on photo #7 but the two of you standing there in a stylish purple boot and Frannie's hoodie is cute in its own way. G.K.'s doing the right thing just relaxing inside.

    Again, Happy Sweet 16 Cora-Belle have a great one!!!!!

  • It's the purple people eater!

    Oh Sharkey I just love that covering for your paw. What a great idea.

    Your purple paw, Frannie's cone head.. what a calamity! :)

    Spirits seem high which is great.

    How is GK faring with his Lyme disease? Hopefully, he's following doctors orders.

    It's been a dreary, gloomy few days here in NH. Waiting for the sun to peek out!

    Say hi to the donks and squirrels!

    Hugs to all..
