Happy Dogs on Thursday, little friday and Thankful Thursday!
Do you see how intently Sis is focused on something? (Gretch is too… on whatever was on Sissy’s foot?)
Can you see them?
Those photos were taken immediately prior to her rough landing as she departed from her perch (aka: our hot tub cover), which resulted in the luxated quick (read: quick popped through the nail) and the rush to the vet’s on Saturday.
That’s my dopey, mopey DIVA, not long after we got home. She’s just starting to feel better, but I suppose that was to be expected. Wondervet had advised that she was giving Sis five days’ worth of pain pills, and she wanted Sissy to take the whole prescription, no matter how happy she seemed. Yesterday afternoon, with just last night’s dose to go, Sis finally began to be herself.
That means she resumed leaping and “mooing” and trying to lick the bacon grease off the hot griddle on the stove top…
Which brings us to the Thankful Thursday part. There just aren’t words to thank wondervet and the staff at the vet’s. I had already called in for FOUR days straight (to check on Gretchen’s Easter travel plan) when I called in Saturday, less than 45 minutes before they were scheduled to close. (Normal Saturday hours on the day before Easter? That’s impressive on its own.)
The receptionist knew who I was, and only took a second to confirm with the vet on duty that they’d still see us. I never asked, as it is a multi-vet practice, but I wasn’t surprised at all when wondervet’s personal extension showed up on my cell, as we were walking through the office door, precisely 10 minutes after I’d promised the receptionist we’d arrive. She was checking to confirm we were going to be there before they had to close…
Then, instead of diagnosing Sis and saying we’d need to take her to the emergency vet clinic another 20 minutes away for the minor procedure Sis needed, wondervet and at least three staffers stuck around to take care of us.
It took us a while to settle with this practice. We had a good vet before, but my girls have special needs, needs that a sweet little country vet wasn’t able to meet to my exacting satisfaction. Even the Knight is singing the praises of wondervet, and he’s never met her!
It’s truly beautiful outside today, even if I am sneezing my fool head off from the pollen. The rain is coming though, and for once, I’m looking forward to it.
How’s your little friday?
