This card is perfect. This morning I dropped Toby off at the vets he needed a bunch of work done on his teeth, he won't let me brush his teeth and his breath has been so bad. When he went for his yearly check up and rabies shot the vet was like eww, he had some teeth that were really loose and infected. I felt like the worst Mum ever. I mean he is a little 8 pound dog and I can't brush his teeth, how can that be? But it's true, so anyway, I dropped him off and thought how weird the house felt with him not here. We had Sammi for almost 14 years and a few of those years we had Toby too, we always say Toby is the last dog, cause we are getting older too, but it really felt weird with no Toby running around. I mean he goes to the groomer and is gone then, but this was different cause anything could happen really while he was under sedation, and I knew he would not be feeling good when I picked him up, so I unpacked class supplies, and straightened up a little bit with my mind wondering how he was doing. I even got my fun package from my BFF Tracy and that got my mind off Toby…for a bit. Look at this awesome card she made me.
Neat eh? She also sent lots of PA snacks, and gifts too. She even sent me a sign that says "I laughed so hard – tears ran down my leg". I am a lucky girl, she spoils me. I can't wait till she comes out here in February, it will be over a year that we have seen each other by then, geesh, that is a long time. I hope I can lose some weight by then or I'll have to wear a "Hello, My Name is…" sticker.
So the vet called and said that Toby would be ready to be picked up at 5pm, he did good during surgery and was in recovery. So I got there a bit before 5 and they went over everything, pain meds, antibiotics, softening his food, talking about the stitches, my poor baby has no more front teeth or bottom teeth, those little ones, not the long canine ones. How the heck could that be? The vet said that Yorkies have bad teeth, and I know it is my own fault for not brushing them. Again I think how hard can it really be, well you should have seen Jeff and I trying to give him his antibiotics tonight, it took two of us to hold the squirming little guy down, they gave us liquid for both meds, why they didn't give me pills instead I don't know, pills are easy. Should be interesting to see me do it by myself in the mornings while Jeff is at work.
So I am gonna head for bed with my little guy, I have been babying him since he got home, he seems so forlorn.
Have an awesome Tuesday and thanks for stopping in.
