OH BOY, WHATTA TIME I'M HAVING

AND NOT A GOOD TIME, EITHER.

A WOMAN CALLED AROUND 3:30 YESTERDAY AND SAID SHE JUST GOT MY NAME AND
NUMBER FROM A FRIEND AND SHE'S GOING ON A BUSINESS TRIP AND COULD SHE
PLEEEEZE BRING HER DOG TO ME TO SIT.  AND IF I WAS FULL-UP, THEN SHE'D
HAVE TO PUT HIM IN A KENNEL.  HE'S 12 AND NEVER BEEN IN A KENNEL...HER
GIRLFRIEND USED TO WATCH HIM, BUT GOT MARRIED THIS SUMMER AND MOVED
AWAY.

SO, HOW COULD I REFUSE?  WELL, I SHOULD HAVE.  I ALWAYS HAVE THE PARENTS
BRING THEIR BABIES A FEW DAYS OR A WEEK OR 2 BEFORE THEY COME TO STAY
OVERNIGHT...IT GIVES ME A CHANCE TO SEE IF THE DOG WOULD GET ALONG WITH
THE OTHERS, ETC.  AND IT GIVES THE OWNER A CHANCE TO SEE HOW WE ALL LIVE
TOGETHER.

WELL, SHE BROUGHT HIM, INSTEAD OF 7:00 P.M....SHE CAME AT 9:00!  I SAT
HERE FOR 1 HR. THEN CALLED TO SEE IF SHE GOT LOST...NO, SHE HADN'T LEFT
HOME YET!  SO WE WAITED UP...(WE GO TO BED USUALLY 8:30-9:00)...SO, AT 9
SHE ARRIVES...THE DOG SEEMED VERY HAPPY HERE, SO I TOLD HER HE COULD
STAY.  ASKED IF HE WOULD SLEEP IN A CRATE...SHE SAID NO...AND BY JOVE HE
WOULDN'T...SO I LET HIM "FREE" IN MY BEDROOM...AND AWOKE TO 2 HUGE, DARK
YELLOW PEES ON MY BRAND NEW BEDROOM CARPETING.  OH, YEH, SHE TOLD ME HES
12 AND ONLY EATS MCDONALD'[S HAMBURGERS.  WELL, I THOUGHT FOR SURE HE'D
EAT MY GRANNIE'S STEW!...NOT.  LUCKILY I HAVE A MACD'S NOT TOO FAR AWAY
FROM ME.  

WHEN SHE WAS ABOUT TO LEAVE, SHE SAID, "OH, YEH, I FORGOT TO TELL
YOU...HE'S EPILEPTIC (SP) AND MUST GET HIS MEDICINE 2 X'S A DAY...I'LL
HAVE TO GO TO THE CAR AND GET HIS MEDS, I FORGOT TO BRING THEM IN...

WE'LL TO MAKE A GRUELING STORY SHORT...I HAVE 4 MALES HERE WHO THINK
HE'S A GIRL...I THINK HE HAS A BLADDER INFECTION...CALLED HIS VET TO ASK
IF I COULD GIVE HIM SOME CLAVAMOX...OF COURSE THE VET SAID HE'D HAVE TO
SEE HIM...THAT PRACTICE IS A LITTLE OVER AN HOUR FROM HERE AND MY VET IS
CLOSED ON SAT...SO HIS MOTHER VIA MY PHONE CALL TO HER (TG FOR CELL
PHONES) AGREED THAT I COULD GIVE HIM THE CLAVAMOX.

HE'S A VERY HEAVY, LARGE FOR A BICHON AND VERY, VERY STRONG...I COULDNT
GET HIS MOUTH OPEN, NOT EVEN A ***Y BIT...HE'S STILL STRANGE HERE, SO
IS NOT TRUSTING ME ANYWAY AND RUNS ANY TIME I APPROACH HIM...WOULDN'T
EAT CHEESE, P-NUT BUTTER, BREAD, ETC.  TRIED IT ALL...FINALLY GOT HIM
ANOTHER MACD'S AND WRAPPED THE PILL IN THAT.  LET ALL THE OTHER DOGS
OUTSIDE AND HE DID ME THE HUGE FAVOR OF EATING BOTH HIS HAMBURGER AND
THE PILL.

SO MUCH FOR TODAY!  OH, YEH, SINCE THE OTHER MALES WOULDN'T LEAVE HIM
ALONE, I FINALLY PUT ONE OF THOSE "BELLY BANDS" ON HIM...THAT HELPED A
LITTLE.  

IT'S NOW 7:15 PM AND I THINK THE MEDS ARE BEGINNING TO WORK BECAUSE ONLY
ONE MALE IS INTERESTED BY NOW.  PHEW!  WHAT A TIME I HAD...BUT WOULDN'T
GIVE UP THIS FUN BUSINESS FOR ANYTHING...I LOVE HAVING THE DOGS AND
FIGURING OUT THEIR INDIVIDUAL QUIRKS AND PERSONALITIES...AIN'T LIFE
GRAND???

 GAAA...I WOULD HAVE CRATED HIM, AL LEAST UNTIL I KNEW IF HE WAS
HOUSEBROKEN. SOUNDS LIKE YOU HAVE A WINNER THERE, LYNN.

 ANYONE WHO WOULD TRUST A STRANGER OR A KENNEL TO TAKE CARE OF A DOG WHO
NEEDS MEDICATION IS CLASS "D" IN MY BOOK. THE FACT THAT SHE DIDN'T SHOW
UP ON TIME DOESN'T BODE WELL FOR HER CHARACTER, EITHER.

 BETCHA SHE WILL BE A REPEAT CUSTOMER. DON'T LET HER WALK ALL OVER YOU.

Well, I coulda used you to help me...where were you?  I had to ask a
friend to come over twice a day and hold him, while I merely shot the
meds in his lips.  Could't do it without help...he'd make his lips real
taught.  We had a heck of a time, even with 2 of us.

TG he went home tonight. And absoultely wouldn't eat ANYTHING other than
his MacD hamburgers.  Lord only knows what his mother's going to do when
he has to be on a Special Diet for his UTI, which I think is bladder
stones, not just a bladder infection.
