toughing it out

a couple of days ago, Jesse came in from our afternoon walk w/a bloody paw. the neighborhood has really been a mess since the recent thaw, & when I say a mess I mean that I've never seen so much trash on the streets & sidewalks as I have over the past week. it really is disgraceful & makes me so angry. try as I might to watch where we walk, I obviously missed something
& Jesse got a bad puncture wound on his right front paw. I had been diligently washing & applying Neosporin over the course of 3 or 4 days, but he was still limping badly. so, today we went into the vet & luckily the wound was clear. he did come home w/that big, bright bandage on his foot. it was all I could do not to laugh at him openly. poor guy. he's resting quietly & hopefully healing well.

Get Well Soon, poor Jesse! A pox on broken bottles and piling-up trash. I agree: the city is a toxic place after the snow. And I hate that the innocent have to pay the price.

(He does look pretty cute with that bandage, though).
