This morning we had to take the dogs to the vet to get their annual vaccinations. Rory suffers from impacted anal glands which we need to squeeze every week (oh the joys of being a former vet nurse), so we talked about getting them removed as they are becoming infected more often. At this point in time, surgery is tentatively scheduled for the 24th November as Rory has to be on antibiotics for two weeks beforehand.
Meanwhile Caleb is losing a lot of hair, much more than normal, which started happening after he came home from the kennels last weekend. At the moment it is suspected to be a stress reaction, so we need to keep an eye on him. If it gets worse or the hair doesn’t stop falling out and he starts getting bald patches, he will need to get blood tests done to rule out any nasty causes.
Oh the joys of owning dogs. Who said that owning pets was supposed to decrease your blood pressure?
After getting the dogs’ medical needs taken care of, we headed off to the mall at Bondi Junction with Glenn and Susan to wander around and grab some lunch. We spent a great deal of time in Borders and there were heaps of books I would have liked to have brought if they weren’t so expensive.
Unfortunately, I really can’t walk around a lot, even using my crutches, so wandering around the mall became a rather painful experience. I am really over this. I want to be able to go and do things with my friends without being in pain.
Plan for this afternoon is to do nothing at all, before heading off to dinner at a Lebanese restaurant on Norton Street for Veronica’s birthday.
