Rascal had been sleeping last evening and when I went to take him out for the last time he couldn't walk across the floor. He would take a step and then sit down and look guilty.
Leonard and I went into panic mode. We just didn't want to deal with something awful. We picked him up and started looking him over. I discovered a cockleburr which had stuck in his tail hairs and then it had stuck to the back of his foot!
After trimming out the burr we all let out a sigh of relief, even Rascal!
