These are my paws.
(all nicely healed)
I use them for for all sorts of things, ..like jumping on Uncle Gerry, Uncle Neil, and Helen. ..Daddy! too, when he comes home from work. I use them for getting people's attention - when they're lying or sitting on the couch and I'm beside them waiting for a pat, I poke them. I can be very gentle.
I use them for running. I use them for holding down ducks. They help me get on the bed and into sunbeams - where the hounds can't go during the day, when the dog-steps are moved out of the way.
I like them rubbed, and trimmed (thanks Dad!). I hope you like them too. :)
