Good News/Bad News

Bad news - Cooper has heart worms.
Good news - He gets to keep his "berries" a little longer.

Bad news - Cooper has to stay at the vet until Monday.
Good news - I may milk my sick leave to stay home with him next week.

We've only had this dog for a couple of days, but we sure miss him. We went through the heartworm treatment with Buddy years ago and as old as he was, he did really well with it. The vet, Dr. Cutie, says there is a new treatment that doesn't have the arsenic in it, but it still isn't pleasant. David is worried, but I think Coop will be just fine. He and Chris slept on the living room floor last night. The way he sprawls out on the pillows makes me think he is related to David. The way he lays next to the couch and sticks his head underneath it to sleep reminds me of how I put a pillow over my head when I sleep. I think it was meant for him to be here.

Chris fell off of the couch when he and his dad were rasslin' today. The way he and his inner Drama Queen have been acting, you would think he lopped off a few toes instead of just jamming one. I had to carry him to the bathroom earlier. Crazy Drama Queen.

On a brighter note...

Good news - Go Pokes!

By the way...the cow in the "shake that thing" Carl's Jr. commercial...that's not a real udder.

    Damn, I wish I could have been there, wearing orange and black. ;)

    Yeah, but that commercial still makes me giggle every time I see it.


  3. Poor Cooper! I'll be thinking of you :)
