tomorrow norton goes in for full sedation to get his nails and ears cleaned. i am soooo looking forward to this. he is slow as molasses and as cooperative as a freaking rock and as patient and peaceful as a kamakazi pilot. he is going to make me late for work and he is going to piss me off with his trigger happy defensiveness long before we even make it into the van. jean, you think murph is a pain, he is a snap compared to old norton. i do find it mildly interesting that both radar and norton bite first and ask questions later (or not at all). i am so glad i refused to even look at the 7 yr old shepx from the same family, i am sure the old boys taught him some pretty good tricks over the years. sigh, old dogs are not dead dogs, and old dogs aren't necessarily always nice. norton is a good guy unless you are pissing him off, tomorrow he is going to be choked. lol, i might take it personally and think it has something to do with the poor old guy ending up at saints except i saw his owner trying to get him out of the back of the truck with his muzzle on his very angry face! no hidden secrets here norton ole boy, i got your number and you have always been a sometimes jerk. now lets see if i can get you to the vet and the really good drugs with all my fingers and various other body parts intact. i hope the vets have a blow dart, they aren't going to be too happy with norton or me tomorrow. i better get them some timmy's.
he did fine with the vet, some heavy duty meds, a muzzle and he now has normal feet and a slight yeast infection in his ears...BUT he ratted me out by puking up evidence! i picked him up and the vet who is quite by the book and into doing it right, looked at me and said..."were you feeding him cheese whiz this morning?"
errr..., no...just a third of a cheese slice to get him happily into the van.
so which part of "fasting" did i miss?....that part that means the difference between a happy norton and a biting norton! thx for barfing me out buddy, see if you ever get near a rum ball after that!
