Get'n Fixed Up

You know I have this injury on my left hind foot. It was hurt in the terrible accident of November 10th. Its healed over but my foot is very sensitive - all that scar tissue stuff. And the new tissue is still fragile and ouchy.

That is why I have to wear the booties. Mom got these booties at the store but whatever kind she gets me just twist and turn, flop off, and worst of all don't help me on slippery surfaces. Its a real dilemma when you are a go-everywhere, do-everything guy like me!

EXCITING NEWS: The Alabama Artificial Limb Company is making a special prosthetic shoe for me. They've never done a dog shoe before so I'm an experiment. And I am sooooo special!

Here are pictures from Friday when they were measuring me. I wasn't sure about all this, but they promise it won't hurt.


  1. Woo are going to be furry furry famous!


  2. Turke, that shows how very special you are!! The very first!! Lots of love, Holly and mom

  3. Turke, that's fantastic! YAY to the Alabama Artificial Limb Company!! I bet that shoe will feel so good. I'm very happy for you.

    Love, Cupcake

  4. That's pretty cool news! I was going to suggest Therapaws because they're custom made, but it sounds like you have something really special on the way!


  5. Wow! Custom made shoes! Do you get to pick the color?!?!

  6. Oh Wow!!! This is very exciting - I'm glad to see more organizations offering pets a second chance like this. "See a need, fill a need!"
