This week has been super-stressful for me. Besides the usual take-care-of-mom crap, Harley hasn't been doing very well.
Last Saturday his back end gave out. He was fine in the morning, and was fine coming down the ramp out of the truck. But, a little while later when he tried to get out of his bed, he flopped. He flopped and I flipped. I had to dig out the butt sling we used a few years ago when he strained his ACL. Gave him a pain pill (from the vet), just in case. But, I wonder if it did more harm than good. Spent a few hours crying on Sat. over my puppy and gave myself one HELL of a headache. He wasn't much better on Sunday, and Larry came over Monday morning to help me get him into the truck to go to ma's. In fact, Lar has come over every morning this week to help heft puppy butt.
[On a side note - as much as I bitch about working with family and helping to take care of my mom, I am lucky to have this job. If something like this happens, especially with the animals, I can count on help. I don't know what I would have done with Harley if I had to go to a real job.]
Long story short - Harley is better, but still unsteady. He wants to walk too quickly, so I have to keep a hold of his harness to slow him down or he'll fall. If he shakes his head he falls over. He tipped the water dish over twice, partially my fault for not picking it up off the floor. He's been getting fed in his bed with special food I mix up for him.
My morning routine is all messed up because, where I used to just clip him to the run outside, now I have to get up and dressed and go out with him. Takes me an extra 20 minutes. But, I think I have things scheduled better for this coming week.
We'll see how this week goes, and if he doesn't keep improving, I may call the vet to see what else I can do to help him get better.

Speaking of animals - my lips are still blistered. It's almost been a month. I should have stepped on that eft. ;)

Now, for something completely different.
I discovered a few people from LJ are raising dragons on the Flight Rising pixel pet site.
In case anyone is interested, they are having an open registration tomorrow, Nov 17th from 5:30 server time and closing 5:30 server time on Nov 18th. I'm pretty sure that is EST.


I know I've showed some of my dragons before, but I'll show off a few more -

Join to breed pretty dragons and fight monsters.
If you join, let me know and I'll send you some stuff.

time for bed.

[Crossposted from DW. Apparently, I like to spread my boring Spam all over the Internet. And, I paid for both sites, so I should use them like a mad monkey. Comment at either place, I'm easy.]
