So now I have to Hoggy to the vet!  
 Something must have happened at the dog beach. I noticed he was limping and licking his paws. Between each pad there is pus! His front paws are fire engine red between his toes. The sand was hot but not that hot. My feet got used to it and he was in the water the whole time. Plus Onyx and Clementine's feet are fine. 

Anyone had any expierence with this? He can barely walk and everytime I take him out to go potty he comes back in and licks his paws like crazy. 

I am taking him to the vet tomorrow. 
 
 
I am feeling: worriedworried

Maybe he had an encounter with a jellyfish?

that did cross my mind.. but he never limped at the beach.. or cried.. he just constantly wanted to play

If he on cloud 9 he might not have... Bostons are still Bully breeds and they can override those senses for certain behaviors, usually pleasure or anger.

Our Wilbur didn't cry, yelp, nothing when he had his face bit through at the dog park by a Mastif. Although we know he's hardcore... that still had to hurt!

i am taking him to the vet soon.

is wilbur ok!?! were they playing or was the mastif really trying to hurt him?

They were playing, but he wasn't fixed and Wilbur went to smell his man business and the Mastiff didn't take to kindly to it, turned and bit straight through his face and pinned him to the ground.

Meanwhile, the owner of course wasn't doing anything and I had to pull his dog off mine. Wilbur pranced around for a half hour, staking his claim to every tree in the park afterwards.

didn't he need to stitches then? if he bit through his face?

No, we kept the wound clean and it was just far enough away he couldn't lick at it... although bless his heart he tried. It healed right up and he's back out running with the pack!
