I have an almost 2 year old that is highly protective over our sheep, horses, chickens and our entire family.
Today, she was licking at her hind feet and I noticed some bleeding. Her double dew claw had done a "bozo the clown" trick and started to grow back into her pad. Yes, my fault I didn't catch it earlier.
Anyway, I am going to take her to the Vet to have them removed. All they do is flop around and get caught on stuff. I don't know what this "shown" stuff is, but if removing them means she can't been "seen," then OK, I can live with that.
I do feel sorry for the Coyote that tries to sneak up on our sheep and gets face to face with an invisible Monster Doggy.
