So I take Brinkley in to the vet to be groomed & weighed only to discover that he has a yucky ear infection.
Sadly I must instill these drops & cleanser into his big floppy ( what I thought were rather clean) ears twice a day. Now my once "follows me everywhere--velcro doggy" refuses to hang with me. If I'm up stairs, he's downstairs & visa versa. If he sees me coming towards him he sort of ducks in case I have the medicine. So I've been trying to follow him around & give extra tummy rubs.....our relationship may never be same.
On a good note, he is up to his desired weight. He needed to gain about 15 pounds from when we adopted him. The vet encouraged me to go easy on the treats & feed him raw broccoli, carrots & canned green beans---who knew?
For Christmas, the big guy got a Vera doggy collar ( yes its blue ) & these spiffy albeit pink tennis balls. Surely after all this medicine is over he'll remember who loves him, right?
I hope to get he & I ready to volunteer with Happy Tails. Happy Tails is a group here in Atlanta that these awesome dogs volunteer to visit children's hospitals and others that could use a slobbery sweet doggy hug.
See, even Brinkley has new years resolutions!
