cuz except for diabetics and bedtime meds..and since everyone is still sleeping!!!! i have nothing much to do!
i adore bambi...i have a huge soft spot for out and out old homely dogs. and she makes me happy...always up for a funny game of pounce around on a dog bed...and ALWAYS greatly interested in whatever i happen to be eating...she gets her little flabby body dancing for treats...adorable!
anyway she is currently sleeping on the bed down at my feet...and i can see that her not so little and sticking out tongue is stuck to the furry fleece. that has got to be uncomfortable dontcha think? her tongue is all dry looking...how can she possibly sleep?
and it occurs to me that i shamefully never gave this much thought before...that dogs whose tongues stick out could feel dry and uncomfortable.
anyway..in human nursing we have glycerine swabs to keep oral mucous membranes of our patients moist so that they will feel not distressed by a very dry mouth....and i am going to get some for bambi and see if that helps.
it is amazing the simple things you notice when you have nothing much to do...i never thought about the discomfort she might feel from a very dry tongue...but now i am thinking i know how i would feel if it were my tongue...not very comfortable so i am going to do something about this for her.
i just might have some glycerine swabs to trial out in my car with my nursing supplies....maybe she will like it..maybe she will think it is a new kind of human quick swabbing treat!
or maybe even better! i will just give her a popsicle to eat...i have some frozen fruit juice ones in the freezer...and i know she will like one of those...or could she even be one of the few who actually does like jello???? (she pretty much will eat anything!!)
i am full of mindless good tasting theraputic dry tongue ideas tonight...i think this might be why bambi really likes me....food focused minds all think alike... lets fix that dry tongue with something sweet tasting and moist!
