Crusty Paws

Sometimes when I feel like cuddling, I climb on top of Mom's lap while she's watching TV. As sneaky as I can, I scoot myself up all the way up to her chest. But sometimes on my journey, I hear "Ow Swish!". Now I know I'm not the skinniest dude, but I'm not that huge, so I know it's not that I'm too heavy. I finally asked Mom why she kept 'ow-ing'. She said my paws hurt her. They're crusty and rough against her skin.

Mom heard about BAG BALM from another blog and that it was good for crusty stuff. Like dry noses and paw pads. She found some at the store and thought she'd try it out on us. The other night, it was time to experiment on me.

These were the tools.
 Yes, those are dog socks.

Mom tricked me! She asked me to lay down on the bed like she was going to give me a belly rub, but rubbed that stuff on my paw pads instead and slipped on these silly socks!
 Even used masking tape to make sure they wouldn't come off.

 It's kind of hard to walk around in these.
 I'm high stepping like a Champion Clydesdale!

Swish: How long do I have to wear these things?
Mom: I'm going to leave them on all night. I know you, you'll just lick your paws clean. We're going to bed now anyway.
Swish: All night?! What if they cut off my circulation?
Mom: They won't. I didn't put them on that tight.
Swish: Not to you. 

Wish me luck furiends.

Lots of licks,

Pee.S. She put some one my nose too, but I licked that off. Bol.

Pee.pee.s. In the morning, I only had one sock one. Bol!


  1. My CRAZY Mommy #2 does this kinda thing to me sometimes. I don't know if it works since I, too, am very good at getting the socks off and my nose licked clean and DRY. But if it makes the 'rents happy, I endure.

  3. Oh Lawdy! I do hope my Mom doesn't see this. My dear, you deserve some major treats for that kind of torture. It is funny to see you high step, but I feel for you. Let's hope this treatment lasts for a while cause that is a huge tin.


  4. Yep mom used that one Sammers nose and he licked it clean off.....our feet are not bad she couldn't just cover his face with a sock..hehehehehehhe

  5. Oh gosh- I have a feeling moms will try this too.
    You sure look cute with those sockys on- but I know they are bugging you,
    Sweet dreams with the socks on and I just know your little paws will be so soft very soon,

  6. I hope it helped your skins. I don't like wearing socks ever!!
