Every Dog Has His Day...

This apparently wasn't Charlie's...


Saturday is Charlie's Obedience Class day. Yesterday started like any other...but as we were getting ready for class, I was giving him a good rub-down and found a tick the size of a corn kernel on the inside of his leg. I was horrified at this blood-engorged thing burrowing under his skin.

I called the vet and they told me how to get it out, but when I did, the head broke off and stayed in. I had to use the tweezers to get it out and then put peroxide on it. Charlie was a total champ and didn't whine or anything.

Then we packed him off to his second class. The first one went well and the second one started off well. He was teachers' pet and did anything the two instructors showed us. Then during the "recess," this other dog got aggressive with Charlie. Thankfully, he's not aggressive, and just did what he was supposed to...hunkered down and gave a warning growl.

So then class ended and we took him to his pedicure appointment at the shelter where the classes are. Well, this was too much for the little guy...he screamed bloody murder while they trimmed his little paws.

"Not COOL!" he seemed to say.

I went to an appointment and came back to find out that he had thrown up in his crate. He looked so pathetic.

So we left him to nap and went and got lunch, haircuts, groceries and came back home. I also picked up some Zodiac flea and tick shampoo from Smiley's (little local shop where I got Kira 10 years ago).

So we got home and continued the torture of poor Charlie. I wanted to make sure there were no more ticks or fleas on him, since he is getting fixed tomorrow and won't be able to have a bath for a couple of weeks. He was good about the bath, but by the time we were done he basically looked exhausted and spent the rest of his evening napping.

Poor little dude...And tomorrow is surgery...


Not too sure about this...
Um..Is this necessary??
WHY GOD??? WHY HAVE YOU FORSAKEN ME???Dude, Not COOL !
I Give Up!
Damn Reality TV
Can't...Go...On...


ZZZZZZZZ....

Awww, Charlie is such a good pup! He clearly has a "good god when will this be over" look on his face, but handled it like a champ. Meanwhile, I'll take his pedicure if he doesn't want it...

it wasn't dusty's day, either...

i was going to chronicle the eerily similar saga here but i think i'll write it as its own post. i wrote myself a reminder... which i sincerely hope no one else ever sees... because the post-it alone would make me seem completely unbalanced.

she's almost forgiven me for it all. right now she's lying in my bed, munching on her bajingo.
