Shadow and I went to the church parking lot and I was roller blading with him on his leash running with me and he got too close and got caught up in one of my skates and let out a big cry! I noticed he is missing a little bit of fur on his leg and he doesn't like me to touch it. I feel so bad for hurting my buddy! :( Is there anything i can do to help it heal faster?

Sorry your pup was hurt. When our dog gets little scrapes like that I wash the area with a little bit of liquid hand soap and warm water, making sure to rinse it well. I pat the area dry and then apply a thin coat of an antibiotic cream or ointment, which you can get at any pet store. Keep an eye on the wound to make sure it doesn't get infected. Keep it clean and reapply the ointment as needed. These scrapes usually heal in a couple of days on our girl. She'll sometimes try to lick the area if she can reach it. I discourage that by distracting her with a kong or another toy.
