Good grief. The employee shortage has hit the vet offices. I can't even get Toby in to see an ER vet until around 8:00 am, but by then his regular vet will be open and I'll call them and see if I can drop him off. Holy cow. Thank goodness for online virtual vet visits!
It is raining here. Two solid days of rain. 5 wet dogs. Ugh. Back to work tomorrow and I have a sick day Monday. Getting my eyes rechecked after my floater episode. Last time he put longer lasting drops in. I don’t want to risk driving into work and working outside.
I won a Mother's Day mug at the Orangetheory raffle! One of the other women who won one is 8+ months pregnant (I overheard her say she's due to deliver in a week or two) - she got thumbs up from everyone.
Val - we cross-posted. I'm so sorry to hear about Toby.
Thank you all. I knew Simon would miss him but I'm surprised at how much I miss him too. He was always around, never made a fuss, never copped an attitude. Wherever I was, he was usually nearby. He was so good with Simon, too. Gentle while Simon was little, and even with Simon being almost a year old now, Toby still never used his size against Simon. He was my gentle giant.
Toby would have been 4 next month, give or take a couple of weeks. The vet said she'd seen Toby's symptoms before and it was either toxic poisoning like lilies (no lilies or toxic chemicals in this house) or cancer. She didn't think the treatment options would work, and I wasn't willing to have him by himself in a strange place, being hooked up to fluid IVs for 48 hours before he could even get an ultrasound, and then to find out it was what Dr Campbell thought it was. He was in major pain. I just couldn't do that to him. It also appears the vet ultrasound service only works M-F 8-5.
