Breaking my silence

Posted on

I haven’t been blogging much lately and I blame the weather.

We’ve had snow and freezing rain almost every day since November. It’s been brutally cold since November. There have been about 5 sunny days since November. Okay these might be slight exaggerations but they’re not too far off. People who actually like winter are fed up!

If this keeps up I’m going to throw myself under a snowplow and end things once and for all!

Dentist the Menace

Posted on

As my dog is always chewing something (sticks, dry food, biscuits…) it never occurred to me that his teeth would be bad.  So I was really surprised when his vet said he would have to have some teeth removed as well as cleaned.  I felt terrible!  But it had to be done.  He seemed fine when I took him in on the day and actually trotted off with the technician without a backward glance.  That should have been my clue to how he was feeling towards me.  I knew he was in good hands, but that didn’t stop me from worrying.

I was so relieved when they called to say he was resting comfortably and could be picked up later that evening.  I thought for sure he would be happy to see me but when they brought him in he made right for the door with a glance my way that spoke volumes (of swear words)!  It wasn’t until just before bedtime that he acknowledged my presence and that was only when I gave him a little snack.

Well it hasn’t been that long and he’s already finding sticks on our walks and happily chewing away as if he hadn’t lost a single tooth.
