bathing paws in epsom salts

We're becoming quite expert at bathing Penny's feet in Epsom salts. Here's how we do it:

Penny doesn't mind standing there for five minutes (though we've never made it to ten minutes, as recommended).

Why does she stand so obligingly? Yes, you guessed it. A steady diet of treats the whole time. I think there might have to be some discussion of her weight after a week of no exercise and lots of treats.

Today she had two little walks, each one just mooching around on lawn for five minutes, followed by a wash of her feet. There are only little spots of unhealed skin now. Maybe in a couple of days it will be back to normal. Here's hoping.
