I got to steam clean pee AND blood today. Oh boy. The excitement never ends.
Brewster is going to a new boarding place and I needed to trim his claws. I did a pretty good job but then I thought, maybe I'll try and them a little shorter... Poor guy. He didn't seem to be in pain as he ran around the house leaving a bloody trail. Oh I got the blood stopped. Out of corn starch so I used flour. His bed, which wasn't all that great to begin with, is now a bloody floury soup. whee! I will get him a new bed, keep your pants on.
Anyway, I called the vet and they said he should be fine by tomorrow. I thought we were going to have to cancel our vacation. Our expensive vacation. Well, expensive for us.
Anyhoo, as I was attempting to tend to the dog, Madi took it upon herself to get naked and give the floor a liberally dowsing of pee. I guess it's like my auntie said. My humor is my strength to deal with all of this. It's like a comedy of horrors. Did I say horrors? I meant, yeah. Horrors.
I've been doing this gratitude thing where I list what I feel blessed by because I feel it's very easy to get caught up in being miserable. Did that make sense? I'm trying to listen for Madi. The tell tale swish swish of a diaper being ripped off.
My point being, I'm not really trolling for sympathy. I think it's important to remember that as hard as my life may subjectively be, it could be worse and I don't think it's a bad thing to count my blessings. Especially when I'm up all night with Madi and I need to do something.
