did you know


We took Spanky to the vet for his ongoing foot saga yesterday. He is maintaining his weight at 17 pounds, but he still has bad allergies and licks his feet. I guess the goals, since he is almost 14years old, will be to keep him happy and frisky; keep his weight up; minimize his licking; and keep infections away. Well, his infections are cleared up, but he has a fungal infection from the antibiotics on his paws now. Kinda like when we women take an antibiotic and then get a lovely yeast infection. Well, the vet gave me a script for a med and I looked at him and said" do I get this filled at Walgreens or something??" Yes, he replied. (Okay, did anyone else know that you could get your DOGS prescriptions filled at walgreens too???) We usually get all his meds right from the vets office.... I haven't dropped it off yet to get filled. I am a little scared to, because I know insurance won't be stepping in and picking up most of the tab, like on our scripts!!! I'll let you know the final bill when I'm brave enough to do it!

Now that is love right there, if Spanky only understood what all you are doing for him, I am sure he would give you a big thank you! Dogs are like kids aren't they you do just about anything for them. They say that a dog is a man's best friend, but I would have to change that to women's after all we are the ones that take care of them right?
Thanks again for coming to the pool with us again today, Claire always enjoys playing with Brooke & Chase.
