Pecan Toe Strikes Again!

This is Hannah, and I'm the foster puggy at the Medina Foster Home for Wayward Pugs. I've been living here with Howie and his minions for almost a year now, so I am pretty sure I'm going to be a permanent fixture, something foster mommy says she just cannot do without, even more so than chocolate or whippy creme on her coffee.

Yesterday I was afflicted with the dreaded Pecan Toe. I made foster mommy promise not to tell anyone, and she agreed we would never speak of it again. When I walked into the house, my little pinky toe felt so peculiar. Mom took a look and she had these wise words: "Wutt the heck???" She reached down and extricated a little empty pecan husk that had neatly wrapped itself around my unsuspecting toe. She let me sniff it thoroughly before she put it in the trash, calling it names and berating it for cramping Her Hannah Banana's style.

I felt much better after my toe was de-pecan shell-ized. I could hop around without making a clickety clack noise on the hardwood floor, and Howie stopped making comments about how much he liked Pecan Pie fresh out of the oven with ice cream on top. Foster mom said she thinks it's cute that a little southern gal like me would be the only puggy she has ever known to come down with a distinctly antebellum malady such as Pecan Toe. It's just one more reason I am special.

Hi Hannah! Oh that sounds like it would hurt! I'm so glad your mom knew what to do and fixed you right up. Oh, and happy leap day!
Ps. Tell Howie to stay away from the pecan pies. A relative's dog ate my Gampy's pie at Thankgiving a few years back and then couldn't stop making pies of his own in the back yard. Yuck!

At first we thought this was a new toe disease Mom might have to worry about. But then it was just an actual pecan shell. Bol.

Glad everything is ok.

Lots of licks,
Swisher and Oakley

Does that make your toe smell like Pecan Pie? Sounds funny.

We too thought that maybe pecan toe was some new Puggy affliction we would have to brush up on, yikes! But we are so glad that it was just a silly incident.

Happy Pug Dancing!

oh hannah banana!

your pecan toe story made our whole day!

i am so glad you let the story slip out for us all to enjoy!

r-chee is your biggest fan and says he is perfect for you to walk in the park with since he is a big nut.
good news... he is too big now to get stuck on one of your dainty toes although he cannot promise he won't step on them by mistake. :)

We have been afflicted with a similar disease, acorn toe. It happens a lot since we have an oak tree and an active squirrel colony who set up camp on our deck.
So glad you have been healed of this affliction.
Kisses to you,
Tallulah, Petunia and Isabelle
