    Well, BooBoo has to go stay at the vet's this weekend, as I'm going out of town and she needs med. But she also is getting a teeny operation on her eyes--her eyelashes keep turning in and irritating them terribly. I feel like such a wuss, but I just wanted them to keep her there anyway for a few days after the surgery, so she's getting it while boarded. I am terrible at rassling her so as to get the eye drops in....I'm sure it will be ok, they do it by laser and there is generally no bleeding, stitches, or whatever. And if someone has to get hated for doin eye meds, I'd rather it be them than me.
    You give BOO BOO an ear skritch for me and little sandpaper licks are coming her way..

    Congrats, PGM, great news! I wonder if that is what my dog had. He had a cyst or something on one of his feet that had to be removed when he was about 2. I think I heard something about it may be reoccurring and promptly signed him up for pet insurance in case we would be doing this again in the future. I wanted to get it for my cat as well, but she was too old. Those of you with younger pets might want to think about it; it's not horribly expensive. I use VPI Veterinary Pet Insurance (VPI) - Dog Insurance, Cat Insurance, Pet Health Insurance

    QB, hope everything goes well with your cat's surgery!

    Assuming it's still bandaged, duct tape might do the job! If not.... yeah, I don't know. There was nothing we could spray to deter the dog from eating something that she wanted. You wouldn't believe the things we tried to keep her out of the trash (failing efforts, all. Except putting the trash can on a kitchen chair, or when desperation set in, the table. I found it gross.)

    So glad to hear that Jaxi will be ok!!

    Queenb, I hope everything goes well with BooBoo! At least she won't be bothered by it in the long run. I bet she will be glad to see you when you pick her up and take her away from that place.

    I've taken to a new nickname for my Dez. I call her "Thug Muffin" because she is such a thief, albeit a cute thief! Right in front of my face. And she has determination to try over and over and over again. And she looks at me like I'm the crazy one when I yell at her!
