All is well. Blue and Cuddles are recovering fine.

New Dirt

leave a comment »

I can’t find a copy online, but I once saw a cute comic showing a dog barking out a car window, happily inviting his neighbor over for play when he returned, because his people were taking him to get “new dirt.”

A few minutes ago here, all the dogs in the back of the animal clinic suddenly began howling – perhaps they just discovered there was no new dirt anywhere to be found back there.

But it’s finally time for Blue and Cuddles to make up the appointment they missed September 13, when Ike interrupted their own new dirt experience. Cuddles weighs in at 5 pounds, 15 ounces, while Blue tips the scales at 7 pounds 14 ounces.

They’ll each weigh ever so slightly less by this afternoon. And be a little bit slower, at least for a few minutes, maybe.

Useless Online Forms

leave a comment »

So tell me, why does the Animal Alliance encourage us to go online to download and print and fill out their forms in advance, then shrug those forms off and require you to fill out the same information all over again from scratch once you finally arrive at their office? Just so we could rehearse? At least I wasn’t the one filling in the blanks.

Early Saturday

leave a comment »

So what shall we make of this Saturday? Up early to get the kittens down to the pet clinic for their surgeries. After a minor spell of insomnia eased by Tony Montana inviting us to “Say hello to my little friend!” After konking out early from a mild but unwelcome relapse of this past week’s flu. After a failed run through Barnes & Noble, exiting with nothing in hand. After fighting the urge to veg, opting instead for dinner out at Chipotle. After a Friday that felt like a vacuum.
