No, it's not a color challenge....

.....just my colorful foot !

So, you are really gonna get a good laugh about this story. Last week Digby was finally feeling better and had lots of energy so we went to the back yard to play some fetch. He brought his favorite Orka toy. It's a heavy rubber toy that resembles a jack and it bounces all over the place. My big boy loves chasing his Orka and bringing it back and leaving it at my feet to go again. Usually he just sets it on the ground but this day he was especially energetic and he was throwing it back to me (I'm sure you know where this is going but I'll spell it out anyway)

I was checking out my roses when he came bounding back and dropped the toy on my right foot. It hurt initially but I didn't realize anything was really wrong until several hours later I noticed a large goose-egg on the top of my foot.  I iced it and didn't think anything of it because it still didn't hurt too badly. Well it's been a week and it still looks like this:

(desperately in need of a pedicure)

I suspect it may be broken. The irony is that since the veterinary hospital has all my money my injury will need to heal on it's own. I'm sure there's a moral to this story, I'd love to hear your theories...and feel free to use my festive foot as color inspiration :)

  1. Oh, Nancy! That looks like a mixture of distress inks. Wear a firm shoe for awhile! I know what you mean about the vet bills!! Take care and hugs.

  2. That's insane!!! I can't believe that a DOG TOY did that! OUCH! So sorry. :-(

  3. Glad to hear that Digby is feeling better...and oooh ouch!! that must be so sore have now I think gone out in sympathy with him..hugs

  4. Oh, my goodness! I'm trying not to laugh, really I am! :) Wow, what a crazy thing to have happen, Nanc! I'm glad Digby seems to be feeling even better than normal, but maybe you could go buy a "look-alike" Orka that doesn't weigh quite so much?!

    Seriously, I'm really hoping your foot heals soon! It looks sooo sore! Sending hugs to you!

  5. oops digby you are in the doghouse...but I'm sure Mom will forgive you for giving her such a colourful pleased to hear you are feeling better...hugs to you both from kath & buddy xxx

  6. LOL... poor Nancy. I'm sure Digby is sorry he hurt his Mom! I bet it was sore. Very colourful
