Ahh....Massimo's is only pink on the inside.  Up inside between the pads.  I had to spread his paw out to get the first picture, if I just took it, you wouldn't be able to see it that well.  Other wise his feet are white....well, he's dirty, so they're OFF white.

It looks like the hair on his pads needs to be trimed. That in itself may be irritating him. It will also make him slide and overcompensate. Eventually it may affect his gait. I usually do mine about twice a month.

Hmmmm, that looks similar to what Valletta has, except hers is on top of the paws.  I keep her hair trimmed on the underside, so there really isn't any to turn pink.  It seems to only be pink closest to the skin.  She does not lick her paws at all.  One thing that may be causing it...I usually wipe off her feet when I bring her inside.  I've been using a new baby wipe with shea butter and I'm wondering if that's the cause.

AADB's...I was in Point Pleasant last weekend at Jenkinson's Aquarium.  I just love the boardwalk there.

I'm about 5 minites away. I love it there too. My kids have taken oceanography classes there and they also do great birthday parties.

Like I said....I had't groomed him when I took that pic, thats why I took that pic- to show you what it looked like. I usually do it every bathing, except since I fell and hurt both my arms and injured my rotator cuff, I hadn't gotten to it yet. Actually his bathings are usually once a week along with facial trimming and pad trimming.....

I'm so sorry to hear about your injury. Even with a little guy it must be tough. Maybe he has an alergy to somthing. Has he been around anything out of the norm?
