No pun intended.

Reality has sunk in. I can't afford another doxie. As much as I want one. As much as I think Tulip would love to have a companion. She'll have to remain an only child. Or the youngest child of the family.  Vet bill was almost $200. Though she got every shot and medicine known to dogs. She's all caught up and also got some Advantix ( that shit is EXpensive).  I like advantix because it includes mosquito protection.


The good thing is we tested her for heart worms because she had missed a couple of months of heartworm medicine and everything came out negative.  Yay! Also, everyone remembered her and there was a "oh look its Tulip, hi honey". :   )  I like our vet she is very personable even though she's the only doctor in the practice and its very hard to get appointments.  Her and her husband have another larger building and practice across town but she does her own in this building. Kind of complicated. She works and co owns both clinics but this one that Tulip goes to is exclusively her own.   Like you care.. .right.... TMI.

But even though the money hurt I'm so glad she walked away with a clean bill of health.  I have to accept that double that with another dog is plainly undoable.

I'm a little heart broken at the moment.

I've been up for two hours. Tulip woke me up trying to cough something up. Her stomach is making a horrible rumble sound. She's got something in her stomach that needs to come out. I'm worried about her. Though she is alert and not whimpering. Can obviously walk around. But every time I woke up and went back to sleep I had these horrible realistic dreams. One of my parents arguing and me hiding from them. One where Maryann went outside at night to get something out of our car and then never came back inside the house. Each time I woke up very disturbed. So around 5:00 am I guess I just gave up and said I'm getting on the computer.

the children want to go to Savannah today. I need to buy Maryann some clothes. She has camp coming up and also she just needs clothes anyway. I was fit to be tied because she needed clothes before school got out. She wore long sleeved shirts right until the last day of school and that drove me crazy.  Mom just got back from a trip with friends so I haven't been able to talk to her about keeping Tulip. I don't like going to Savannah unless Mom can keep her. Now with her stomach problem I surely don't want to leave her.  She has a appmt with the vet on Tuesday anyway.  Just heart worm medicine, and a check up.  I wish it were tomorrow now.

Anyway.  Hopefully every one will be happy today. Yesterday was good. We had a good time at Splash in the boro.
