Manly Monday


Ollie: Woof Woof! I have a tale of woe... I am going to the vet today, as soon as Dr. C can see us. I was off my food on Saturday (although I did finally eat), and #1 noticed something gunky around my left ear. She thought maybe I had some kind of ear infection (we spaniels are prone to them) but couldn't see anything in my ear. Yesterday morning, we went to see my Lily and co, and #1 and Ms. C both checked me out. They now think it's either an infected insect bite some kind or else blackthorn. I was running a fever. I did eat, though, and spent time with my daughter (she is a pawful!). So, we're going to get it checked out. #1 says it's a nuisance but better to have it happen now than later in the week, just before she leaves.

Here is a nice pic of me she took on Saturday:

UPDATE: We are back from the vet. I had a huge and really gross abscess. All cleaned up now. I got an anti-inflammatory shot, and have to take antibiotics for six days. And I have to wear a horrible, awful, ghastly cone for at east two or three days! Woe is me!

Vidock: I bet you missed me in yesterday's post. I mean, who wouldn't want to smooch this face?

Benny: Mr. G was here yesterday and took a bunch of cool pics of me!

Have a great week everyone!
