Red swelling on paw
We just noticed our dog licking his paw tonight and upon closer examination, one of the "pads" seems to have a red swelling or protrusion on its side. You can get a better look here: http://i.imgur.com/fj2qr.png

Does this look like anything dangerous?

It does not appear serious though keep an eye on it. The pads often heal from small injuries by created what we call "proud flesh". It is kind of like a swollen inflamed callous.
