It's always something...

Yes, we are home! And that's about the only positive thing today. Dixie and I are both under the weather. I started feeling cruddy a few days before we left but pushed it off- it hit me full force Saturday. I couldn't eat anything, was coughing up a lung, and went to bed at 9pm! On VACATION! The flights were miserable, my sinuses felt like they'd explode. So I am home today to sleep and recover... we all know "sleep" isn't happening right now with these wild and crazy pugs. Dixie too is "sick," she's injured herself!

We noticed this last night. After picking them up from their hotel, the pugs all had a free-for-all around our coffee table and Dixie ran herself into it, leaving her with a small face bump. That went away quickly but we soon after noticed this bump between her toes. Here are some closer looks.

It's pretty solid, and I can't find any splinters or bite marks.

So on my day off to "rest" I will be taking her to the vet. I have no idea what it could be. I called the doggie hotel and they never noticed this... it's pretty noticeable by just looking at her (since she's black and it's pink) so I think it just popped up when we got home. It hasn't changed at all in size since we noticed it. Any ideas for what it could be??

Dixie and Momma, I am so sorry you are both sickie! Misery likes company, right?

Momma has no idea about that toe bump. I wonder if she got bit by a... bugg? hehehe Pearl made a joke and it was a bad one.

Hope the vet helps and that both of you spunky girls get back to yourselves soonest!

Oh no girls, hope you feel better soon. I am sorry I don't know what that bump could be ... it kind of looks like scar tissue from an injury... but I don't know.
Love Clover xo

My guess is that she's cut herself and maybe it's infected. Last week i had to rush Herbie to the vet he was bleeding all over from his paw, turns out he just tore a nail and cut a bit of his paw, nothing serious.

We're so sorry you are not feeling well. Mom said if you lived closer she would give you some of her (yummy) chicken soup. (I put the yummy in there). We hope the vet makes Pearl better. Mom has no idea what it could be.

It is an interdigital cyst. if you soak her foot in warm water with epsom salts, it should pop and go away.

Oh no!! You need a vacation to recover from your vacation. :p

Maybe it is swollen from being scratched? I hope it is nothing serious.
