Riley is sad because he has an infection on his foot. He can't remember how he got it. Did he step on something? Get stung by something? He just isn't sure. But the vet doesn't like his infection. He said Riley needs foot baths twice a day, a topical cream, and a two-week course of antibiotics.
Oh, and he needs to wear a sock. So he won't lick his foot.
He would like to know if you've ever seen anything so pathetic.
I mean, he is wearing TODDLER SOCKS. From the DOLLAR STORE. It's humiliating.
Riley is trying to be a good sport. But he'd be very happy to take his sock off now, please and thank you. It's just not natural, you know, a dog in a sock.
(I love this last picture because he kinda looks like a pegleg. Is it politically correct to say 'pegleg'? What I meant was pirate.)
