Mel again. The animal hospital says we can have Buffy back a day earlier than expected. We had planned to keep her in the middle bedroom (the baby room), but I still have one more coat of paint to put on the walls in there. I thought I would have tonight to finish it. The plan right now is to go up to Anderson after work and get her. She’s probably going to stay in our bedroom for the night. I’m worried that Rosie’s going to be very upset about this turn of events. She already expressed her displeasure that someone’s been riding around in her mama’s car by taking a big dump in Vanessa’s backseat on the way to doggie daycare this morning.
I went to Menard’s at lunch and got more green paint since I didn’t have enough for a second coat. Menard’s had Milkbone brand dog toys on sale, so of course Rosie and Buffy each got one. One’s a pig, and one is a sheep. Is it favoratism if I give Buffy the sheep?
The grand total for Buffy’s care so far: $1582.80. That’s not including the follow-up visit she’s going to require for removing the plates on either side of her leg and getting her spayed. It’s also not including the $200 we paid our vet to look her over, do an x-ray, and put a temporary splint on. Buffy’s shaping up to be well over $2K. We suppose she’ll prove herself worth it. We’ve barely had an opportunity to get to know her yet, since all the time we’ve known her she has been in pain or doped up. In any event, we love you all, but do not expect Christmas presents this year. 😦 I hope you all like pumpkin and banana bread.
