Hi Peeps! So it’s another rainy day here in my part of Virginia…….it was dreary yesterday but that was OK because Mom wasn’t home much of the morning/early afternoon since she was at the dentist. Dad and I were on our own. He spent the whole morning in the library reading and I was in the basement in a comfy chair
snoring snoozing. When Mom got home we “resumed our regular programming” and I followed her up the basement steps and popped up on her lap for some quality Mom time.
Next week I have to go to the vet to get my bloods checked again – it will have been 3 months since I started taking my medicine for hyperthyroidism and he’ll want to see if one pill a day has me within normal range. I was WAY over when I had my last checkup. We’re ALL hoping one pill is enough because Mom is having a fit getting the one pill down me (tee hee) – she crushes it into smithereens and mixes it with yogurt as a treat – I love that yogurt but I can taste that medicine most times. I’m getting smart about it too but once in a while she fools me and I get MOST of the pill down. Anyway, Mom’s going to talk to the vet about transdermal medication. There are places where you can have the medicine compounded with a cream and then it’s just rubbed in our little ears and we absorb the medication through our skin!!! Amazing? I think so and Mom figures THAT will be easier than the pill crushing/yogurt hiding thing anyway. So wish us luck on that one!
What else is going on? Well today is sheet changing day – that’s always exciting. In my younger days I’d help Mom with that (well I called it help but she called it distracting tactics) but I don’t do that leaping about any more – I’m a senior guy who tries to behave in a dignified manner at all times (giggle giggle). Mom will also do some other laundry perhaps…….that means an empty laundry basket and once in a while I get a ride in the laundry basket courtesy of Dad. He attaches a rope and pulls me around on the wall to wall carpet in the laundry basket – now THAT’s fun!!!
What’s up for you today? Anything exiting? Just about ANYTHING you do today will be more exciting than MY day that’s for sure.
