New Arrival

Things have been really busy around here and it is my own fault.  After a mix up with prescriptions for my puppies, then not hearing anything back, I went to another vet.  Turns out it was a waste of time because he gave the puppy amoxicillin and most of the illnesses that come out of the local pound are resistant to it.  Luckily, they didn't charge me for the office visit but I did pay $20 for drugs I can't use plus I had to take a few hours off work.  Yesterday, I got an appointment with the vet at the pound (more time off work) and she gave me a stronger antibiotic (at least it is free) so I am hopeful that my puppy will get better soon.  I also made a steam room for him tonight for a half an hour.  I should have done that a week ago but I kept forgetting and wasn't sure how I was going to do it.  I tried using my vaporizor but it was too slow so I just turned on the hot shower.  More expensive but much easier.  Plus, I used the water for a bath for me later on.

While I was at the pound I saw the cutest little terrier that looked very similar to my dog.  She needed a foster home for 3-4 weeks because she was recovering from surgery for a broken pelvis after having been hit by a car.  So guess who went home with me?

Hello there.

Why is he staring at me?
 She will get adopted in no time once she gets her staples out.  In the meantime, I have one sick puppy, 3 puppies transitioning to puppy-mush (very messy), and now this little girl who has to stay in a play pen while I am at work because she can't get out the dog door and my big dog would run her over.  This means getting up earlier to feed everyone, clean up, and dole out medicine.  And in the evening I do it again plus a load of dog laundry.  But it is only for a few weeks so I think I can manage.  I didn't need to watch all that tv anyway.

He'll be glad when she's gone though. He's been sulking.
