Seems it’s just a vale of tears for the pets these days. Hope is feeling much better and thanks you for all your inquiries and encouragement on her behalf, but the glass is most definitely on the half empty side for a few of the other pets this week.
While I was languishing in the dentist’s chair (AGAIN!) Victoria and the CE piled a gaggle of highly offended cats and dogs into the car for a trip to the vet yesterday morning. Seems that summer (if you could call it that – the temps are hovering in the high 50’s at the moment) means dog days even for the cats.
Soho and Rosie were due for vaccines. Cody, if you can imagine, is allergic to his own plentiful fur and developed an asthmatic reaction to it, (as Alexandra observed, “So Cody is allergic to cats?) so he has to have the occasional steroid injection. Dizzy has a dermatological condition that embarrasses him, so a steroid injection was indicated for him, too. And there was even a moment of sickness for the CE at the end – when he saw the bill! Yikes!
But life is not all bad. The dogs are getting walked, the she-bird is having baths, and when we aren’t medicating animals, we occasionally slip out for some fun of our own.
What could possibly be better than a dogs-included beer tasting? A veritable Oktoberfest with pets! Leave it to friends Katherine and Dan to come up with such a sophisticated and pet-friendly occasion!
I don’t know about you, but in general, the glass seems more than half-full, and when there’s beer in it, all the better. Cheers, everyone!
