Aha! Mommy just got the basin out and is getting ready to soak her feet.
Let me inspect them. Hmm, the nails look a bit long and
when I look closer, I see some dirt too, so it's high time for a good soak.
Maybe I should help to rub them clean.
No, Mommy didn't like that idea, so I guess I just lie down and wait for her feet to get a good soak. Let her do all the scrubbing if that's the way she wants to be. I'll just relax and pretend I'm at the spa.
Now she's done with one foot and she lets me lick it a little. I bet that felt real good!
Then I go and fetch a nice big towel for her, so she can get good and dry.
Mommy tells me that people with diabetes, like her, must dry carefully between their toes. And then they have to put on a special cream so their feet don't crack! A lot of fuss as far as I'm concerned, but good doggie that I am, I go fetch the special cream.
Mommy loves these samples she gets for free at her Diabetes Support Group meetings. She tells me they're called Neoteric Diabetic Skin Care, Oxygenated Advanced Healing Cream. (Boy those were some looooong words for dog like me!) Woof, woof, I'd say, I'm glad I got it right, cause Mommy recommends this cream for anyone with cracked skin or diabetic feet. She says it's wonderful and healing. So I got to plug it for her.
That's all for now. --- After all that hard work, I'm off to take my nap. Thank you for visiting!
