Pieces of me

I have a very strange anomaly on my right paw...a bi-colored toe nail! One half is black, the other white - and split right down the middle. My mama and pop says that they have never seen such a thing before, and that I am "wicked special." (Yes, they actually said "wicked!" Ruff, Ruff!)

My mama tried really hard to take a picture to show everypup, but I decided to be a bit of a wiggle worm. If you look closely though, you can see the mutant nail - it's the 3 nail on my paw closest to the camera.

I hope it doesn't change as I grow older! I kinda like having a different piece of me.

Whoa Sparky... I'm jealous! That's awesome! There's nothing special like that about me.

Kat said...

Tadpole - your whole "being" is special! Just look at you!

Sparky said...

BTW Tadpole - that Kat is my mama and not a real CAT!

My girl laughed and laughed at your Kat-mom's comment, Sparky. I don't what's so funny about it. I thought it was very nice of her to tell me I'm "special".

Cool! You should be a toe nail model.

The black half must be the pug nail and the white half has gotta be the beagle one!

Cool! We also have a weird doggy foot issue. Check out Porter's weird paw pad!

In the very bottom (winking) picture, you can see that Porter's back paw PADS are webbed, and not just between his Lab toes. He has extra web! The vets all said they'd never seen it before. Anyone else with pad-webbing?

(And also, about Sparky's nail -- we used to see this in our Paint horses. The hoof is the color of the skin pigment just above it, so a brown and white horse, for example, might have a brown and white striped hoof, depending on the pigment at the "nail" bed. I bet it's the same with Sparky, since he has some white on his paws!)

Penny has two black toes & two white toes. Nothing as cool as your toes Sparky!

That's too cool! Even if you're nail was just plain you'd still be super special though. :)
