And now that I’ve unloaded some post adoption angst…..let’s get back to talking about my wonderful dog. She’s had some issues of her own lately. DH was all hellbent on trying to convince me that her paw chewing behaviour was due to all the attention on CB (chocolate button) but I kept telling him it was more likely her food. She gets more walks than any other dog I know. During the Christmas holidays, she was doing at least 5 k a day around the park. A trip to the vet confirmed what my instincts were telling me all along…. her eye discharge, ear gunk, itchiness… was due to food allergies. $83 later, DH and I had a new schedule for giving pills, eye drops and ear drops. Had I not been wearing my halo I would have told DH I told you so at the top of my lungs. But I was, darn it.
So back to the food that was working for her even though she crapped a lot. Oh, she is a delicate flower, isn’t she? She’s doing well, walking beside the stroller while leashed around my waist. At 68 lbs now, my back may give out if she finds a squirrel more interesting than me.
