Last Tuesday evening, Lola got to do pretty much as she pleased. You see Wednesday was her birthday and I have to teach on Wednesday nights, so she got to do whatever she wanted.
This included watching the Dog Show...
In fact, I said, "Do you want to go watch tv on my bed?" She jumped off the couch, ran to my bedroom door, hit the door and then howled because I wasn't coming fast enough!
Wednesday was her birthday. We celebrate with presents! (Since she is on the strictest of diets, no treats are allowed...just didn't want you to think I was a bad Mom!)
The rest of the week was uneventful. By Saturday, I had decided that Lola had a skin irritation and a secondary infection. So I called our favorite vet and left him a message with that info and the number to our local Walgreens. The message taker at the vet acted like I was crazy, but a few minutes later I got a call that the script was being called in. Luckily (or unluckily) we've been down this road so much, that I know how to diagnose the problem and Joe, our doc, trusts my diagnosis.
Lo is on antibiotics and her horrible immunosuppresant. This medicine is horrible because (1) it makes her tummy unhappy, (2) it makes her totally Stoned and (3) makes her so clingy.
Basically, we spent the weekend on the couch watching Gilmore Girls with Lola in my pocket.
I think I've timed it and though this medicine is hard to find the good time to give it (2 hours after food, 1 hour before food, 30 minutes after her anti-nausea medicine), I'm going to do it late at night so that she is droopy during the night. Fingers crossed that this will work better!
