I was so excited to finish up work early on Friday. I was looking forward to coming home, going to the gym and getting ready for my date night with TG. Silly me.
I walked into the apartment to find a cowering golden retriever and the remains of a Tide-To-Go pen. This is a pen like apparatus that is used to remove stains. I thought this was common knowledge. Apparently not. I had to explain what it was to like 5 different people at the Veterinarian office. I also had to repeat myself several times after the Vet technician said "Honey, you're gonna have to say that again. I can't tell because of your little southern accent". (Lady, God talks with a southern accent.)
Sitting in the examination room, I explained to Barkley that I hoped he understood that he would not be getting any treats, toys, or tennis balls this Christmas. This is the result of the simple fact that in the month of November alone I have spent over $400 at the VCA Veterinary hospital.
They gave us plenty of medicine and he should be fine. We will know within the next 2 days whether or not the plastic part of the Tide-To-Go pen has caused an obstruction. Please pray that it does not.
And please pray that he will find it in his heart not to eat anything else with harmful chemicals or have explosive..um, tummy issues.
He's lucky he's handsome.
