Tidbit: when a dog’s nails get too long, neurologic input from the nail touching the ground gives feedback to the brain, making it think that the foot is standing on an incline - this results in a compensatory posture that causes excessive weight-shifting on the limb and unnecessary stress on the joints/muscles. The right nail length? Short enough to touch the ground when the paw is on a level surface, but long enough to provide traction when digging or climbing.
The first time she's ever fallen asleep in a book. She's so in love with the language and rhythm of Michael Rosen's poetry for the very young. We have one from each column of the contents page before bed each night and she loves to choose. #tippytappy#michaelrosen#bookworm#cantactuallyreadyet#love
So tragedy struck. Something stained Tappy's chin down to the backing. Bless her maker for making her armsleeves super big so I can basically graft fur from them to fix her (because her fur color is discontinued). Anyways she'll be fixed by FWA, but before then you won't see a lot of her D: #tippytappy
