Fudge



No, not Fudgepants. Fudge, the stand-in for the word I want to use. Sola has been hit with a case of pancreatitis. It's causing her quite a bit of pain, and she has become severely depressed.

So little time has passed since her recovery from the stick incident. Nigel just healed from minor surgery for a growth in his mouth and two tooth extractions. Truffles got over encephalitis just prior to that. And on and on it goes. I'm asking our vet to install a revolving door for the sake of convenience. We're beginning a course of meds now, and it is my hope that we can take away the pain soon.


The invoice does not lie.


Truffles: "Hey two-legger?"

Author: "Yes Fudgepants."

Truffles: "When is the last time you went to the beach?"

Author: "It's been at least a year, maybe two. Why do you ask?"

Truffles: "You have all of those big ocean birds hanging around you."





If only they were seagulls. I could feed them my Burger King leftovers and be done with it.


I have scheduled Wordless Wednesday to post automatically. We may or may not be around this week. Sola is my baby girl, and nothing will be right until I see her shine again.

  18. I think it is well past time for that black cloud that's been hanging over Vermont to leave. I hope Sola feels better soon and NO more vet trips for a very long time. I hope your banking account bounces back soon too.

  19. I can semi-sort of say I feel your pain. I recently laid down 300 big ones for a TEETH CLEANING! Plus also, Shar pei have a history of skin, nose, ear and breathing problems.

    I hope your doggies feel better soon, and your wallet, too.

  21. I'm so sorry for Sola. Poor dog. Hope she feels better soon. She looks so sad, she must be feeling miserable. Even your vets must feel sorry for you all now.

    Virtual hugs to all of you. Really hope things will get better and stay better.

  22. Oh, Sola, what a bummer! Take your meds like a good girl and get well fast! Ask your Dad and Mom for some extra affection to help you not feel so sad. I am sending you love from Minniesoda!

    Kisses,

  24. I understand that when the pups aren't feeling well, neither are you...we are certainly connected to our critters, aren't we?

  29. Feast carefully, Sola. I've had many wee friends make their pancreas angry from eating funny feasts. I think you need one of these, STAT:

  32. I hope poor Sola is better soon... nothing is worse than when one of the babies is sick and hurting. Hugs to all of you, and esp two legger due to the vet bills. I feel your pain there. :-(

  33. Ouch, those vet bills can really hurt.
    I had a huge bill one Christmas eve - all for nothing more than constipation and anal glands that needed expressing.

    Fudge. Yeah.

    But we pay for having professional expertise available whenever we need it. The emergency vet crew was there Christmas Eve for crimminy sakes ... I thought they deserved every penny.

    Feel better!!!!!!!

  36. Oh, I'm so sorry to hear about Sola. She looks like such a sweet baby. I really hope her pain will ease soon. Vet bills are not fun, but I like the way you still have a good sense of humor. You sound like a wonderful person!
    Bathroom bills are no fun either!

  37. Rooting for you Sola - and everyone else!

    P.S. - we are convinced that our vet, as good as she is, is paying her mortgage based on The Herd.

  38. Poor Sola. :( My mom's cat had pancreatitis several years ago and I know how miserable she was. So was the cat. I hope you feel better soon, sweet puppy!

  39. Oh Sola, I do hope you feel better soon. It's terrible being sick and it hurts the people you love too.

  42. We joke about having our paycheck direct deposited in the vet's account. It's only half joking. With ten of them there's always something going on.
