So my poor puppy (he's actually old) spent the day at the vet. It was so sad to leave him but with a trio of problems (respiratory ailment, sore leg, and tender tummy) he needed some tests and observation. $700 later he came home with lots of meds to keep him comfortable and get him on the road to recovery. He is like a 4th child to me and when he doesn't feel well, I know it and will do anything to take of him! It was probably just bad luck that everything happened at once but it totally worried me and stumped the doctor. I'm glad it was nothing more serious, especially after I was led into a different 'consult' office before I could take him home! (Just wanted to go over instructions with me before leaving but I let my imagination take over when I was sequestered like that!).
Over the past few days I've been keeping busy starting my Christmas baking (made three gorgeous fruitcakes that need to ripen for a few weeks), exercising (had some fun getting the old Wii sparked up to use the Wii Fit), and doing a bit of shopping (Costco runs take a day but I got a lot of great stuff!).
