Finally–the sun is shining! For a while there, I was thinking I’d better start building an ark.
Sadie-beagle is on some new meds–she has Cushing’s, which is treatable and non-life-threatening–and let me tell you, she doesn’t like to take them, especially since she was already on several other ones. For a long time, I could fool her by hiding pills in pieces of liverwurst, but she’s wise to that (or tired of liverwurst) so now we’re at the wrestling stage. She’s a 29 pound dog, and I’m a — pound woman, but that doesn’t mean I win easily. Beagles can be unbelievably stubborn. I give her the pill, she spits it out. I give her the pill again, she spits it out. You get the picture. Me on the floor in my bathrobe, Sadie doing her best not to swallow.
What some people won’t do for the love of a dog.
I’m working today, and I can’t wait to get started. A new book is always challenging–but it’s bound to be easier than getting medicine down Sadie’s throat.
Wherever you are, I hope the weather is fine and your spirits are high.
Have a wonderful, restorative weekend.
