Riley's Injury:(

I took Riley to the vet last Thursday night because he'd had red splotches on his belly for a few days an I figured it was an allergic reaction of some sort. We got home and started playing with the ball and he suddenly started limping but he still wanted to play. Chris went over to look at his paw and there was a nail sticking out of it! He stepped on a rusty nail that went in the bottom of his paw and out the top. Poor thing never really knew anything was wrong (thank goodness) but we had to rush him to the emergency vet so they could take it out. He had to go into surgery and now has to wear a cone on head which he is NOT happy about. He runs into the wall and chairs like he has no idea he has a big satellite is around his neck. I would post pictures but my camera is sent off to hopefully get fixed. Riles is a tough guy, even for two vet visits in one day!
