NERVOUS BREAKDOWN #386


ANN CALLED WITH KARMA THROWING UP.

WHICH IS SOMETHING DANES DO FAIRLY REGULARLY-- EXCEPT WITH BLOAT HANGING OVER YOUR HEAD-- IT IS A TOUGH CALL WHETHER TO GO TO THE VET WITH THEM- she did go...

a bunch of pills later the decision was that she had eaten an acorn or mushroom or something.

*************

in the medical venue- we took 3 skin problems to george yesterday

mark is covered with bumps- sammy has a few-- and tucker has a messy goop on his shoulder-

puppy strangles was mentioned-- that is just an unfortunate name-

strangles in horses is just a bad cold sort of thing-- passed aroundd in horsey gatherings-- like the slaughter pens from which janinie gets these horses quarentined in our barn... ?same bug?


why tucker would have that goop--- in the exact spot 2 others have had in the past 2"x3" oval on is shouldder very near where we put the frontline-- and vacines- neither of which they have had lately-


megan set to shampooing the pups-- soaking them wrapped in towels in the warm sun-- a very poetic scene with both earline and ann swaddling pups

i took a picture..



our own intensive care department


the pups are acting better today-- they are certainly cleaner


i wasn't sure if mark's appearence was due to Monday's oatmeal bath- he looked like someone forgot to rinse him-- he looks better today.

it's always something


if it ain't ants, it's fleas-

***************

gay came to pick up heydawg- who was thrilled to see her-- i was a little worried because he spent his 4 days here standing in the middle of the living room staring at the door- depressed- big time- i worried - but when gay came he bounced around and leaped in her car "let me outta here"

*****************

MY SISTER FRAN ARRIVED LAST NIGHT FROM COLORADO- FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO HAVE NOT MET FRAN-

, she is extremely competent -and accomplishes great things-

except her vocabulary lacks "hurry"-- she doesn't even do "quick" -

"rush" is definitely out of the question- she is imperturbable

the family has known this for years-

she stops before she does anything--ANYTHING-- which can get carried to the extreme.----- opening the car door is a 12 minute process..


but she has far fewer accidents than i do..

**************

plan of the day


pulling together the rest of the tower of hope applications-

they are not insisting on iraq veterans-- so we have a few more to include.


put up 4 sheets of plywood on the nuthouse-- it is fairly rainproof now

paul got up drip edge and we have rolls of black stuff to go on next.


when theresa is here we can run to costco-- well--- if fran is going with us it will be a saunter to costco.... to do george's office shopping.
