    I was drying off my Welsh and saw this little black thing sticking out of her belly. It looks like a giant splinter...Something I should be concerned about?

    That's her belly button. [​IMG] Leave it alone, it'll disappear soon.

    Ok....Thank God. I am new to this so I flip out on anything. My fiancee says at least I am getting practice taking care of babies.
