Poor Emmi—today was her first real veterinarian appointment—she had her puppy shots but this was much more traumatic. She wasn’t impressed, she growled at Kirk, our vet, when he took her temp and yelped when she got her shots. We also had to draw blood to do the heart worm test before we can start her on heart worm meds. I discussed the rattlesnake vaccine with Kirk, too. I wanted to discuss it with Michael before we went that route but I think we will probably give Emmi the vaccine—Kirk said I was right that a rattlesnake bite would probably kill a dog as small as Emmi.
If my poor Michael is any better it is only by a slim margin. We are going to the little clinic in Big Timber tomorrow to discuss other options and to get a prescription for more pain meds.
Gina, Rollie and friends of theirs—Dale and Mark came up for dinner—Gina even brought the dinner, taco soup, with her, now what more could I ask for?? We visited for a short while then they all headed off to show Dale and Mark our Natural Bridge State Park.
This morning before we went into Big Timber I took compost out to the compost pile and noticed that the whole cantaloupe I tossed in last week was no longer whole—most of it was missing. As I began my walk back to the house a large “pile” caught my eye—YEEKS—bear poop with chokecherry seeds, very close to the house.
Calli came and picked up her quilt today, she was very pleased and so was I.
We are hoping for a better day tomorrow.
