So we all waddle down the stairs, get the wood stove stoked up, dogs all fed and mom's tea brewing. Still a quiet boy. Ok, whats up with him? Then I noticed he was shaking his head around. Then a bit later he started scratching away at his ear. Ahhhhh!!! Dr. Dolittle thinks she may be on to something! So once all of us were settled back in bed I peeked inside his ears and discovered some icky treasures. Ewwww!
Wives...you all know that trip. The trip where you finally crack and you bundle the family loved one up. Your husband's ever loving voice echoing in your head from the previous evening's discussion on how much this beloved animal is actually worth and how its cheaper to buy a bullet to fix the pet then it is to buy medicine to treat it. (guys are sooo compassionate!!) Ha!!
We get to the vet clutching our pet, have them poked and prodded and mildly violated and handed a small bottle of pills and told they should be feeling better in a few days. (um ok..now to get pills into this beast...) Hopefully the bill is less then your mortgage payment, but that doesn't matter, right? Because your little family member is coming home and will be feeling better soon!
The more we share, the less helpless we will feel. And hopefully, if there is a next time, we can say hey! I know how to fix that for my little buddy!! Looking forward to your comments.
