Ok. Those of you who were in the chat room with me know this already but Maverick came home w a bloody paw last night. He had split the pad somehow. Cut it on a can lid or something super sharp. It's almost an inch long and half an inch deep. He wasn't sore and was walking and playing and acting normal. We cleaned him up as best we could (mental note to self, make a doggy first aid kit) and today bf went out and got some gauze and that stretchy tape. I rinsed it with salt water and we wrapped him up. He's fine. There was so much drama because he was wailing on the floor, milking it as he usually does. I mean, I'm sure it hurt but he really loves the attention too. And the weird thing is that Mini (Maverick and Mini are the original two) was obviously upset by Maverick's antics. She flew into a rage. Hid under a table and slapped Mikey's butt with full claws several times. Mikey then had a fit and sat on Maverick trying to get steve's pity. Mini flew across Maverick and attack Steve before I grabbed her and put her in her perch (top of a shelf) so she could watch things and calm down. We had to put Mikey outside because he kept running all over Maverick who was still whining on the floor. Now, Maverick is happily chewing a bone and Mikey is still tied up outside and Mini is cleaning herself.
