Super Saturday Part II

 

Me, Sheldon, Phoenix and Chesapeake

This is a continuation of my last blog post, Super Saturday Part I.

When we get home from a trip in the car, I always get to go on a little walk around the property. Generally I can go wherever I want as long as Melly and Sheldon don’t think it is dangerous. When we got back from our lunch, I first decided to go visit the horses. I’m not afraid of them as long as they are on the other side of the fence. Sometimes I think I would like to go in there but then I realize that I probably wouldn’t like it after all.

Super Saturday Part I

 

Me and a squirrel eating birdseed

I don’t know whether to love weekends or to hate them. The good thing is that Melly doesn’t have to go off to work in the morning. The bad thing is that Melly doesn’t have to go off to work in the morning. I’ll attempt to explain why I have such conflicting feelings using this Saturday as an example.

Lumpy Gari (Part 3)

 

My butt hurts

This is the third and final installment of the story of my recent trip to the vet at Texas A&M.

There aren’t any photos of me in the car on the way home from the vet. That is because I was miserable. I stood behind Rick’s seat the whole drive. I didn’t eep. I didn’t want anything to eat. I didn’t try to crawl on Rick’s lap. I didn’t watch out the rear window to make sure Sheldon was following. I didn’t do anything. When we got home I continued to stand and not do anything. Melly says Dr. Hoppes gave me a shot of pain medication before I woke up. Either that wasn’t very strong or my pain would have been even worse.

Lumpy Gari

A swarm of vets/vet students invaded my pool

Last Tuesday Melly felt a strange lump in my side while we were swimming. The lump was about as big as a golf ball and positioned just where my right hind leg joins my body. I think that part of me is called my “flank” but I’m not sure. Melly shot an email out to Dr. Hoppes, my vet at Texas A&M University in College Station, and asked her about it. She said she was coming to Austin on Thursday anyway so why not drop in and check it out. (This story has a horrible surprise ending so be sure to keep reading.)
