Still waiting on warmer weather. We did have some heavy rain, but the snow is still there and has a good coating of ice. So here are some kitty toes.
As we’re in our, hopefully, last polar vortex of the winter I went through past photos for something springy and sunny.
A bike from the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago.
Today’s photo is of a cake I baked for a family party this weekend. Because it’s so very cold and snowy here right now I decided to add a little bit of springtime to the cake by using greens in the decorations.
I’m a little late today, the moon tonight.
Today’s Monday Photo is also a past photo, a snowy photo from a past snowy day.
I’ll be posting a photo every Monday in 2019. Today is the first. It may be a new photo or one I’ve taken before. Today is a rainy, gray, cold,
I looked some stuff up on the internet and found pet forums. There is a lot of information there. You can ask questions and get answers. They have pages for all kinds of animals, large and small. Of course, always check with the vet!
He didn’t seem to be too bothered by that, but his inner ear was still bothering him.
Yesterday we took him to the vet. They had an “all-day” appointment. With this type of appointment, the dog is brought in in the morning and then they take a look at him when they have a few minutes throughout the day.
He had a hematoma in his left ear. They said this could be from shaking his head or from scratching at it. He also has an ear infection. That’s what was causing the discomfort in his ear that he was trying to alleviate by scratching.
So, they drained his hematoma and used a little steroid to help keep it from refilling. They told us there’s a 60% chance it won’t come back and 40% chance it might. Another treatment option is to just let it be and it should resolve itself in a month or two.
So, for now the poor baby has wear what the vet calls an Elizabethan Collar, but what we (and the writers of UP!) call THE CONE OF SHAME.
You can see his poor ear in the photo. The doctor said that “crinkle” may be permanent. We think it gives him “character”.
