As I write this, Sadie is sitting beside my chair, looking up at me from the center of the plastic cone she’s been wearing for the last two weeks. Today is stitch-removal day! In a few minutes, we’ll be headed down the hill to the vet’s office. We’re both looking forward to the restoration of regular beagle-dog status!
I continue to recover from my dental surgery, and the bug that attacked immediately afterward. I spent all of yesterday snoozing, with Bernice and Sadie tucked in on both sides, as they always do if I’m sick. Of course it’s instinctive behavior–a pack member is down–but it feels good just the same.
Later today, it’s pre-op for my foot surgery. Tomorrow, I’ll try to get on more cheerful ground!
