Putting on the dog

Poppy, our  old female greyhound, was pronounced safe for Rimadyl.  The stuff is expensive ($2/day), but it's very effective for reducing joint pain in old dogs.  She's been on it for a week. and tonight she took her little shaggy gorilla toy out in the back yard, and purely romped the hell out of it for about ten minutes.  So $2/day is OK.

I was waiting at the vet's for the results of the blood test, watching people come in and go out with their critters.  One lady came in without any critter, but that's normal, people come in to pick up pets that have been getting treatments.  She smiled at Poppy while she was waiting for the receptionist.  Then one of the vets came out and gave her a little cedar box with a little brass plaque on it.  She turned to leave, and she was trying to keep her composure, and I said, "I'm sorry", and she nodded at Poppy and me, and left.

$2/day is a f*cking  BARGAIN.

Having sent a friend over the Rainbow Bridge while holding her in my arms, I know how difficult that must have been for the good lady in question.

How's Rimadyl for Old Wolves?

A magazine ran a contest for "Underachiever's To-Do List", and the Number One entry was "Win the trust and affection of my dog."

Cats, on the other hand, are here to remind us that the universe is largely indifferent to us ;)
