question for dog owners - re abby

One of abby's nails came completely up from the quick and then fell off. never have seen this before. she is at the vet, will be sedated and the quick trimmed all the way back. then the plan is for the quick and the nail to grow back together.
she wasn't anywhere new - just patrolling her backyard. so now we are going to have two recovering from surgery around here. luckily the engineer was able to come home and has the next three days off to deal with us...
anyone seen this before?

i hope it's just a nail that sustained an injury to the bed and fell off-

Carlos says it could be just that, too, a nail that got snag in something and was pulled out. It should, and probably will, grow back.
