there are a bunch of emails from both dogs and cats wanting in....two i am thinking about but so far not answering cuz if i answer i will be hooped in again...one is an 18 yr old cat living alone in the house since her owner died. and the other is an elderly mastiff cross with some pretty sad family problems. i think it is safe to think about them as long as i don't try to answer.
the stitch holding yoshi's third eye lid up broke yesterday so he got dropped off at the vets to get fixed up. he bit angelina when she was trying to clean up his eye before his appointment so now she is the walking wounded too. i asked the vets to knock the little bastard out and shave his entire face and head til he was as bald as mr potato head. it is too hard trying to give him meds in his eye and his mouth cuz we can't get past all of his skanky thick hair. they did sedate him but not enough to shave his head down...he was still trying to bite them. yoshi is not one of their favorite saints dogs. he looks like a freak with only part of his face and one ear shaved...he is such a pain in the ass... mr. little hairy crocodile creep...aka... the shit-head finger amputator. the vet did give him a long acting antibiotic injection right into the eye mucousa tho so now we don't have to risk life and limb to medicate him. yay!
dukey (his name is now chester...which i like better!) went home from the vets today. he had ALL of his horribly abcessed teeth removed and a neuter. he was not only a crypt orchid (one testicle still up in the abdominal cavity) but that testicle held a fairly large tumour. the vets sent it off for pathology..i really hope it is beign.
nikko (our old malamute in foster care) is at the vets and quite ill today. the vet said he has a massive hard lump on his neck...could be a really nasty abcess but she thinks it is a highly aggressive tumour. they were just going to aspirate it when i talked to her and then maybe depending on wwhat they find, snap an xray. he will be staying in overnight on pain meds. tomorrow we will see how he is and then decide if nikko is facing an end of life crises or if he can feel better with a good medical plan of care.
esther is driving me nutz...that dog should really start worrying about de-barking.
But I'm head of the SAINTS GLEE club. Here's my favorite ditty ... "Bark, bark. This is the song that doesn't end, bark, bark, until you give me the cookies in a bowl on my bed ... bark, bark. BaARkkkkkkkk."
and i finally gave bibi shit when i got home and told him it was time to stop barking...unlike esther he actually shut up which is why i am only contemplating killing one dog right now and not two.
fluke (another foster dog) and his dad stopped by to pick up some stuff. too bad i didn't get to see him but angelina said he looks really good and happy so that is good to hear.
gwen is finally going home to her foster home with mo tomorrow (mo is taking some time off work to cater to her for the next couple of weeks)..here is me doing the happy dance..one less dog to step over and around..one less dog for me to worry about cuz mo can worry about her and that healing leg now!
Good luck Mo .... (jumps for joy)
larry is in my lap. larry is very quiet and cute. larry never bites and larry goes outside to pee (unless it is raining.) larry is my favorite dog today...i love larry. he can stay here and everyone else can leave.
just me and larry at saints forever..now that is a wonderful dream.
Love, love me do ...
