Day 63


Once or twice a year, Islip offers free rabies shots to dogs and cats. I sat down there for a while this morning, watching, chatting with Pooper Scooper Lady...and picking out my favorite dog. My own Caleb has something wrong with him right now...we spent most of the afternoon at the emergency clinic today, with no resolution. For now, he's just laying by his food bowl in the kitchen, watching disinterestedly as the cats keep stopping by for bites of his food. He's a pretty sad guy tonight...so in honor of Caleb, I offer up today's photo - the most noble and courageous dog of the morning...I can just hear him thinking, "I'm not afraid of no stinking needles! Lemme at'em! Lemme at those needles!"

Islipian,

I hope your dog feels better soon and that they find out what's going on with him.

It's so frustrating when animals are sick because they can't just come out and tell us what's wrong with them. :-(

So sorry about your Caleb.
Hope he feels better soon.

Lovely shot. Hope your Caleb picks up soon. Dogs, when they are sick, are really sick but when they pick up it can be so quick. I hope it is for Caleb.

Your blog has been included in our guide Around The World.

The guide is both a record of old blogs and a listing of new blogs. Although originally arising from the CDPB lists this is an independent publication. Inclusion here does not imply that a blog qualifies for nor is officially a CDPB. Our criteria are that photographs mainly from a specific geographical location (not necessarily a "city" but usually more specific than a whole country or region) are posted at dated intervals (not necessarily daily) and archives are readily searchable by date.

Please keep us informed of any changes to your details.

Oh yeah, he is raring to go. He probably thinks he's going to get a treat...what a surprise he's in for! Nice of them to offer that. The humane society here was offering that and free or low cost spaying/neutering. My vet told me they aren't doing it now because the grant to pay for it ran out. So it looks like I'm going to have to spend over $600 to get all 4 cats fixed. All I can say is I hope people want a lot of their kitten calendars for Christmas...or it ain't gettin' done. LOL

Bettye prayers and thoughts sent Caleb's way. Hopefully it is just a quickly passing bug.
I think you have that dog in your photo pegged!
