Indignity upon Indignity upon Indignity. I am far too civilised to suffer this string of unending injury. Woe ! If I was a human, I would look like this....
How much is one little terrier to bear?
Cut me some slack. Really? MPJ what are you thinking? This borrowed Sock-of-Shame belonged to a gigantic Labrador; it's not for a little pint-size like me. How is a girl to maintain her dignity in something as unflattering as this?!
Left - not swollen
Not to complain, but Man this is just PANTS. How am I supposed to chase squirrels with this?!
Right - too swollen to walk
So it's back to the Vets... Oh Joy. Not. The vet says there is a deep infection, and MPJ says no way we are going back on the meds that made me so nauseous and uncomfortable. Vomiting is so not my thing. This time I have an injection of a 2 week course of time release antibiotics. OK by me. Avoiding D&V is top of my priority list!
Then it's off to the pet shop to find a sock I can actually walk in. And now see MPJ screwing up her face with distaste as she sees that the only socks in my size are - you guessed it - PINK. Sheesh. Enough already with Pretty Pink. My favourite colour is orange!
Jokes, right? Was I seriously supposed to wear that giant sock? Well I can tell you for free that I was less than impressed to have to put on that Pretty Pink Sock-of-Shame. Check out my face when MPJ put it on the next morning.
But Joy Oh Joy. We went to my favourite forest and, feeling so much better on the not-sicky meds, I could run! And chase squirrels! Chasing is the best, and after 2 weeks of feeling ropey it was pure joy to rip through the undergrowth.
And I wish you could have seen MPJ's face when I kept losing the sock. And hear her mutter in her pissed-off voice about the price of looking pretty in pink. One package of 4 socks costs $17. I lost two of them in the first 10 minutes.
And now I'm Chillin' It's such a relief to not feel sick anymore. Ohhh, and the Pretty Pink Poo Update? 13 lbs 5 oz Go me. 48 - 27 = 22 ounces to go.... We've crossed over the halfway line!
