The last week has been a trying one for the family – and everyone has suffered. Especially the dog.
He’s in a cone of shame. My bank account has suffered too, but at least I get the airline miles out of this triple threat trip to the vet last week. Really, Huck is fine. It’s just part of the routine costs of keeping the broken animal, but this cone business is getting us all down.
That is when I’m not laughing at the ridiculousness of it all. Gold Star Future Parent right here!! So we needed Dutch Chocolate Walnut Frosted Brownies.
It really was a routine visit to the vet. A doggie dental, aspirating a lump on his chest, and removing a cyst from his eye. But one stoned dog later, nearly $800, a cone of shame, and enough pills to make me look like a pusher, and the crashing sound at every turn with a dog who has absolutely no spacial awareness – we’re ready for this cone to come off.
The trash has been knocked off, walls run in, I’ve been taken out at the knees by him zooming by to get his breakfast, and parked cars have been run into.
The only good thing about this cone is perhaps that he figured out he can “snowplow” the three inches of snow we got last night right into his face when we were out for our walk this morning. No need to go get the snow himself, he figured out he can make the snow come to him! He was thrilled.
With all the haphazard messes from this last week – I really am glad the dog is healthy-ish. And that I got dutch chocolate walnut frosted brownies.
Let’s not get carried away and give him a clean bill of health… He’s still allergic to everything under the sun, including himself. His hip dysplasia is still alive and well, and he’s in the cone of shame for another four days.
But what we would do without this kid is beyond us. And incase any one is really worried about how hard his life is with this cone one… I can assure you, the one thing he can still do is make it all the way up onto the bed himself. So don’t feel TOO bad for him.
There was one other person who was lamenting the last week, too. It was Ben, for nary the reason that I made a batch of cookies and took them all into work leaving him with only a half dozen to himself. So I made him brownies yesterday. It’s not often I have a craving for nut loaded brownies, but this weekend I sure did. I topped them off with a really delicious and EASY, whipped chocolate frosting and sprinkled a little powdered sugar over them for kicks. The dutch chocolate makes them super rich, you will love them.
