After the lunch with my sweetie, I was able to wash my dirty car and then go home and make an appointment for Tonto at 4pm that same day. He has this scab on his side that we couldn't figure out what it is. My husband was worried about him and we thought it might be cancerous since he had thought that over the few days that the scab was getting bigger. I honestly couldn't tell, but we did shave his side which looked kind of funny. Since he does gets to go over to our neighbors every so often so I was tempted to fix his funny hair cut and shave "Obama" on his left side for now. It would have been cool to walk him with the "Obama" on his side and for my neighbor to see. I didn't but I am still tempted too!
I decided to take Blue Belle with me while I took Tonto to the vet. Last time I took him by himself, he freaked and was mad at me for 2 days. He thought I was picking on him so I took her to calm him in the car. The two just sat in the backseat together and he cried for a little bit at first. They both sat on the examining table together and the vet was able to examine him even though Blue Belle was also on the table.
He didn't have anything life threatening on him and it turned out to be a bee sting and he had an allergic reaction to the bee sting. It makes sense because he does love to chase bugs and eat them too. He does need to loose around 5 lbs or 1/3 of his weight. We just changed his diet to "Wellness" Healthy weight cat food which only has 8 % fat of which most cat foods have around 18-25% fat. He exercises about 40 minutes per day and sometimes we even get him to exercise for up to an hour.
After the Vet visit I took both of them to Pet Food Express for a bath. Tonto cried for a while and then got over it and enjoyed his bath. They both feel very pretty and proud to be clean for now!
Once my husband got home from work we took a friend of ours to dinner at Aqui in Downtown Campbell for some great food on their outside deck. What a gorgeous October night. Blue Belle got to sit outside and show everyone there how pretty and soft she was. We later went over to our friends house (the couple who made me the black and gold bear with love). They have 2 Manchester Terriors. One is around 10-12 years old maybe older and he's partially blind with cataracts. The other is a female (Rosie) and she is about 5 years old. Here is a little something I figured out for myself during this visit.
OLD DOGS ARE SWEET
I just figured out something cool about some old dogs that I have had the experience of being around. These older dogs belong to friends of mine but they have some sort of bond with me where they gaze into my eyes, look at me compassionately, then they will sit next me lovingly and then fart. Some farts are loud and some soft, but they all stink in the worst way! It is unpleasant for all of these old dogs to come over and fart next me. Sometimes, it turns my stomach and makes me want to throw up, but thank god I had just smoked a bowel and was stoned because it really did make it easier for me to sit there while those old dogs farted next to me. Sometimes even old men will fart next to me in the grocery store. Maybe its just me, but its almost as if the world really wants me to be able to fart. Bless their bottoms!
These blocks I sometimes suffer make it where I can barely fart and its so incredibly painful. My bowels will make lots of noise trying hard to get things through but something in there is blocking me. Its frustrating that I have to face this almost daily, but I'm ALIVE!!
Its always a blessing to wake up each morning because sometimes I wonder if the end will be anytime soon. I know that might sound a bit weakening on my part, but I can't help but worry sometimes. I love life that much more!
I actually feel that I get stronger each time I listen Barack Obama speak! He really is inspiring me more and more and its almost as I can forget about the pains that I may be experiencing at the time. It's like a feeling of excitement and a connection to this inspirational leader. I really look forward to having a new future with such an inspirational likable leader. We may even be able travel proudly all over the world without being dogged as stupid and foolish. America smart?
