So already on day #2 of boot camp I missed!!!! But at least I have a good reason…………

One of my weenies Oscar gets real bad ear inflammation due to his severe allergies, we try to medicate him to keep it at bay but with this weird moist weather it is awful on him. When I got home yesterday he was whimpering and rubbing his ear on the ground so when I was able to get a close look I saw that the inflation had caused his ear to swell twice it’s normal size and the poor thing was blood red! So I called the vet and they were going to wait for me as I rushed him in…..they worked on his ear for over 30min to clean it, medicate it and soothe it! They sent us home with a ton of medicine … the poor baby was so scared and upset he fell asleep in my arms like a baby on the ride home. I was really upset that I already missed boot camp but I was not about to let my baby suffer for another minute. You see with Matt working nights now I am a some-what single animal parent! Today his ear was a tad better and I hope that throughout the weekend it will continue to improve!! Funny thing is today we are scheduled to take in our big dog Ralph for a shot so they are gonna let us pay all at once tonight and I am dreading that couple hundred dollar bill!!!!

Happy Friday Ya’ll!

    Poor Oscar! Owen's had his share of ear issues – he Haaates having them cleaned. Lately all the salt and chemicals they put out for the icy weather have been giving him hot spots on his toes – its driving he and I both crazy! Hope he feels better – ear aches are the worst!
