More Doggie Woes

He just finished his antibiotics last night. The lump on his neck is gone and he's been doing very well.

Tonight I'm petting him and realize he has a friggen tick on his neck. I got it out, head and all. But what is with him?? I think he's trying to drive me crazy. I told DH, no more unsupervised running around in the yard. They keep getting into these bushes that need to be trimmed back.

And people wonder why I don't have kids, my dogs keep me busy enough.

People don't realize that being a pet parent is like having an 18 month old child.

Poor pooch.

I agree with seeking solace... being a pet parent is a lot more involved than people think (especially when they do thing like eat plastic!) But I'm glad you got the tick out. Poor thing.

LOL! we live in the country and ticks are a daily event for one of our cats. The other one is oooooh so fastidious and doesn't collect filthy things like that (instead she collects cat litter in her little pads and sprinkles it on our bed)

I was thinking the other day that I should track hot much time I spend on my pets, daily. Some days I think it's as much as I spend on school! I already know how much money I spend... heck, just their grocery bill is bigger than ours!

Glad the lump issue is resolving.

Yeah they DO keep you busy! I've told N.A. that dogs + kids must be less than 4. We'll see how we do on that.
