Nope. I am not happy....

I tried to take it off....

NO!... Is what I heard....


I wonder why I am so attractive to the bugs!
Yesterday in the afteroon, I went out for a short walkie. Everything was ok. But, when we came home, my mom noticed that I was licking my right paw. She did not think it was something important even if I never do that.
This morning I was licking it again.
I got a bath and when my mom was drying me, she saw a big red ouchie between my "fingers". And of course.... a visit to my Vet was the next thing I knew. He checked me and said that something had bitten me. He cleaned my paw with peroxide and applied an ointment. He said I was going to be ok.
But... I kept licking my paw again... and again. And after saying 100 times "No, Lorenza"... she went to HEB to buy a pair of baby socks.... And I am not happy wearing them.

I hope the ouchie will be better tomorrow so I will get rid of this "not funny" sock!

Have a good night

Poor Lorenza! We're purring the paw heals ASAP.

Sallie said...

Oh No!

Feel better, Lorenza!

At least you look cute in your socks. :)

Mr. Pip said...

Lots of nasty bugs in our yard today! My mom got a bunch of mosquito bites! Hope you feel better tomorrow!

Your pal, Pip


Oh no.. but they look so good on you! I wonder if grandma will make matching socks for your dresses now?

PS- stop licking it and momma won't make u wear the socks?

Anonymous said...

Oh no Lorenza, buggies are icky, icky!

I am so sorry, I sure hope that it doesn't hurt!

Don't worry though the sock looks good on you girl, anything you wear looks GREAT!!!

woo woos, Tessa

Lola said...

I wouldn't like wearing that either, Lorenza, but I guess it'll help the ouchie go away sooner. Licking and scratching only make them worse. Of course, I lick and scratch whenever something bothers me, but the Moms always want me to stop. I hope it'll all better by the time you get up.

lotsa lick, Lola

houndstooth said...

Oh, Lorenza, I am so sorry! At least you have cute pink socks that are fashionable to wear! I hope you don't have to wear them for long!

Get well soon!

JD and Max said...

Hi Lorenza,

We seem to have lost you off our blogroll!! We're not sure how that happened so we're gonna add you again - we wondered why we hadn't seen any of your posts for a while, now we know!

We're glad we realised - we've missed lots of great posts and lots of great photos. We sure hope your paw gets better soon. We hear the bugs like to bite girls with sweet blood and everything about you is super sweet Lorenza so you're probably going to be plagued by those nasties always, wish we could chase them away for you!

Love ya lots,

Mango said...

I think your little sock is very cute. I know it is bothering you, but fear not, you look fabulous and your owie will get better much faster covered up.


Frankie Furter said...

I think you have to leave the sock on for it to get better, butt I'm thinkin you should wear BOTH of them. They would look like GLOVES and you could wear one of your Fancy Pawty dresses and go out for and EVENING walkie lookin Stylish!

A MilShelb Mom said...

Our Mom bought us baby socks one time, too... for the winter. Uh, we did NOT wear them! Good luck! We got those things off as fast as we could. Sorry about your bug bite. We get bug bites sometimes, too. Milly gets mosquito bites all the time. She hates those.

Toby said...

Ouchie!!! I'm so sorry to hear you got bitten by a buggie. I know the sock sucks, but it'll make it heal faster.

Just a couple days ago, Mom and I were out walking when all of a sudden I stopped. There was a HUGE bee stuck to my left paw. Mommy freaked out and took it off. I was lucky though, it didn't bite me.

Get better soon ok?


Kari in WeHo said...

you are so good to leave it on when your mom says no!

Oskar said...

The little sock, may not be up to your normal beautiful standards, but if it helps you to heal you should try to keep it on.

Heal quickly!

Koobuss said...

Oh Lorenza! How awful! But it could be worse. You could be wearing a lampshade. Now, that would really be awful!!

Good luck with your boo-boo. Hope it heals soon.

Love and Lots of Koobuss Kisses,

MadameMoiselle said...

I go crazy licking my paws too.. and the socks are not stopping me .

Mom bought a few pairs of socks, but I always take them off in less than a minute..
