ie...dogs with a few brand new, stuffy, supposedly indestructible..(hah..yeah right!)....squeaker toys.
esther got at her dressing again...grhhh. but i did catch her before she messed up the actual wound but not before the dressing was irrepairable. you win and lose some quite a bit in rescue so you do get used to being on both winning and losing sides...today for once was actually a tie.
i stopped to pick up some special food for georgia..her bloodwork showed significant chronic kidney disease. i don't do the low or restricted protein diets for our kidney guys...especially ancient, emaciated and anemic dogs like georgia. i do high protein, high quality fish diets..they need all the proteins they can possibly get and the fish diet proteins are the easiest and least toxic for the kidneys to break down...plus the diet is full of antioxidents which is great for kidney and liver function in the long run. anyway, i should say...this is a personal choice, not all the vets agree with me (but some actually do!) and it seems to work well for us so that is what i am going to do for georgia too.
while i was in bosleys, i found manny a great new bed and since i was feeling warm and fuzzy towards our dogs (probably because i was no where near them!) i bought them 4 new and cool brand new toys. june and mystic have shared one and together have gutted the poor thing to absolute crap. fergus keeps losing his but then picks up the kong and carries it around instead. and joey has a hold of his like there is no tomorrow..he will not put that thing down for fear that june and mystic will wreck it and the giant squeaker thing will be chewed to silent shit. june and mystic tried to tag team him to get it but joey is smart, he took his fat little self and his precious treasure under the bed where they (the toy wrecking oafs) can't get it. daphne's toy is high up on my shelf until i go to bed. then she can safely play without any of the moronic toy thieves stealing it away. tomorrow someone else can have and gut it to death but for tonight it is daphne's to have fun with...i think that is fair.
i better go do up the diabetics so she can have her play time before it gets too late....daphne LOVES new toys!
