So today has been a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day. Okay, so maybe not that horrible, but you will not believe what I experienced this afternoon.
I always breathe a sigh of relief when I get out of my car and hear River barking. But today, I didn’t hear her bark. I hastily opened the door and threw down my things to find her collar caught on her lower jaw! Who knows how long she had been like that. I immediately took off her collar, thanked my lucky stars she was otherwise okay, and took the dogs out to potty.
I usually throw the frisbee with Einstein while River chases after him. After a few throws, River and Einstein had a sideways collision and he sent her into a 360 degree spin. She yelped, I ran over, and she was lifting her right leg. She was sensitive to me manipulating the limb but tolerated it enough that I just put her in the crate and finished with Einstein.
So we come inside after pottying and I smell an awful smell. After some investigation, I discovered one of the cats had pooped outside the litter box in an act of defiance. So I clean up the mess, scoop the litter, and disinfect the floor that once held the strongly received message. Not five seconds after putting away the cleaning supplies, I hear the cacophonous sound of dry heaving. I walk in on my cat, Ozzy, puking in my bedroom.
So right now River is resting, the house smells like marshmallow candles, and the bedroom floor is clean. Hopefully we won’t need to take a trip to the vet, but that would be my luck. ;)
I can’t make this stuff up. lol
