Arkus has blue feet

14 posts in this topic

Yes, my furry idiot has blue feet.

I have no idea how this happened, and I'm not sure I want to know.

I had just gotten back from picking up some food with the wagon (Arkus went along for the ride), when I let him out of the car and took my dinner inside. Zora wanted to eat so I let Arkus stay outside for a few minutes.

Big mistake.

He went through the invisible fence and was gone.

Spent an hour looking, only to get a call from the cops that a neighbor had him. So I went and picked him up ( and got another annoying lecture from another annoying do-gooder). When I let him into the house I looked down and saw that his feet looked odd. In better light, I could see that yes, his feet really were blue.

This dog will be the death of me.

It's not, but his feet are a bright, chemical blue.

Should have a vet look at it if you can't wash it off yourself.

Probably true.

But they will be staying blue for tonight, wrestling a malamute into the tub just isn't on tonight's agenda.

I'm beat.

Camino, I'm surprised at you! You are supposed to dip eggs in the blue dye for easter, not Arkus' feet! :nono:

Every time I see one of these threads, all I can think about is how you could use this.

someone may have had their yard treated with pesticide. there is a chemical that you add to it that temporarily turns the yard blue to show if you missed a spot.

Did he get into someone's pond that the water is dyed blue? Like what you see at min-golf courses.

I don't know what it was, but this morning's dew in the grass cleaned it right off.

Dogs will get into anything, it seems. Last summer after the monsoon storms, parts of the back yard were muddy messes... so the Westies (which are usually clean and white), went out in the yard and came back in the house coated in mud..all over their paws, bellys, faces, etc. Fun, fun...

Even the prissiest looking dog will revert to its true nature when released. I'll bet those little fellas had a blast.
