Today started out as a nice 70 degree day
What a lovely day I thought!Then in rubbing my dog"Peter Pan"on the belly I saw raw skin.He has been itchy and scratching.Mostly when I am trying to sleep.We do the flee meds monthly,sprayed the house when we saw a flee...So now I panic and take him to our vet.$300 plus dollars later and a couple needles,and a thermometer up the butt a blood test and 4 daily meds to give at home(one being PROZAC)he is looking less irritated "down there".
So now the dog and I are on anti depressants together.The reason for this med is the dog bites randomly,but mostly me.He is a 17 pound "pekepoo"that thinks he is a pit bull.This attitude of his started after my sisters much larger dog attacked him when we visited.I am sure it was a case of "Spencer" protecting his property from my dog "Peter Pan".
So we came back from the vets all happy and on the road to being cured.He got a treat and I treated myself to an afternoon of artsy stuff.We sat out on the sunporch together,him snoring,me cutting and pasting a collage.(see above pic)Now all we have to do is figure how to hide all these pills,to get them swallowed.We all know how they can spot a pill in the middle of anything they eat and spit out the pill after.This should be fun,mostly I can't wait to not be embarassed by my surly little darling.I had wanted a doggie for so long, paid "a grand" after getting a house with 2 seperate fenced in yards.He looks nothing like what I imagined,more like a mutt for a grand.He is small but much larger then they predicted.He came with ring worm that I also got from him.When he was fixed he came home and promptly chewed out his staples.
But ya know I love him! I remind myself of that on days like this.
