a fun walk in the bush and a cut paw

Penny and I walked near Narbethong on Sunday and had a great time, as usual. But I noticed towards the end of the walk that Penny was limping.

We headed home a new way, on a picturesque but bumpy road that crossed the Great Dividing Range.



The weather had held off while we walked, thank goodness, but on the drive it rained, so I took it carefully, as the road surface was unsealed.







You might have guessed that when I stopped to take the photo of the sign, Penny and I stayed snug in the car.


When we got home it was time to look at her sore paw, and I discovered she had a cut in the pad. Next time I go walking I'll take a bandage with me, because it was such a pity that she had to walk the last twenty minutes with a cut paw. I'll take some Glad Wrap, too, so I can keep a bandage dry.

Mitch and Molly, I think it's a lot better already. (I hope.)

It seems you should always have somekind of "surviving kit" with you whenever you are going somewhere, with or without dog :D But how to put everything in enough small place so you wouldn't always have to bring a heavy backpack.

I saw a very useful little bum bag with many little pockets in one of my Disney's The Junior Woodchucks books. But I've never found those in real life :(

Lilli, you're right. Even if it's inconvenient and heavy, we should find some way to carry at least a basic first aid kit.
