today will be his second cartrophen injection and day 5 of the new meds...i will give this a couple of more days to see if we are getting any significant improvement and if not i will book his euth. he has his own little team of psycho "Misery" type nurses...suzie and squirt are driving him insane at times with their obsessive cuddling, nurturing and licking. right now he is ok with them..they are both curled in and sleeping wrapped around him but when they are awake, he frequently has to tell them to back off and leave him alone for a bit ...geez!...please and thank you so much!!!
today is maudie's last day and i don't want to talk about that right now.
molly is getting close and mandy and bibi are not far away and with the recent losses of lahahnie, little prince, prudence and little mister, i am starting to feel a bit shell shocked.
i could sit here and list all of the reasons why this was a stupid kind of specialized rescue to get into..but i will save you from that.... i think we have all figured this out by now.
i made some minor headway in the shop yesterday thx to the great team of holiday warriors who took care of everything else. i also got the last of the moss killer down...that memorial garden needs some TLC...looks like winter was pretty tough in there....maybe i might have time today for a bit of a clean up if i finish the shop.
dixie was a bit of a prima donna at bedtime last night...she knows what is happening in the feed room and barn already and is getting a little impatient now. i had to laugh when she started banging the gate with her foot to hurry me along..i gave her a piece of apple so now she knows banging on gates works well for being served appetizers while waiting for dinner. this probably was not a great thing to do...but whatever..she has earned the right to ask for what she wants. and... i was glad she was feeling perky and well after her colic the other night.
ellie is a bit pissed at her...dixie has been giving out foot taps and one connected with the pink princess. dixie is much kinder than lahanie was when he first arrived..he whacked out hard and used his foot as a sledge hammer to scatter any and all...she just gives out a gentle suggestion that they get the hell out of her way.
we broke the rest rules on sherlock and let him loose yesterday...he and belle and mystic had a blast being young, stupid dogs....joyful exploding youth is such a treat around here....but the rest of us who are crippled and old try to stay far away from their play...except for joey. he wants in on it and he wants them to knock it off too so he comes across as the school yard bully-cop. sigh...he gets in trouble from me (the school yard moniter) a lot!
well....i have a ton of stuff to do before the vet appointments this afternoon...marvin goes back in also for a re-check...but i am happier with how he is doing so that is good.
