Part time jobs, sick dogs and a load of dirt

By next week, dirty dogs like this will be a distant memory. I hope.

I heard today from a local animal hospital where I applied for a part time job. Yay! The job is right up my alley – customer service at the front desk, scheduling appointmens, answering phones, checking people out. A couple evenings a week, a couple weekends a month, one holiday a year. I wasn’t sure what to expect for pay; I figured it was minimum wage. Turns out it’s a little more than that. Cool.

Scout stopped in to see Dr. Hawkins today. She’s concerned, as am I, that after time on the meds he’s still having bloody stool. She wanted to see if seemed in pain and decide if we wanted to do an x-ray before or in place of the ultrasound to see if he has something stuck in his intestines. This morning, of course, he had a pretty normal poop and wasn’t up during the night to go out. (Monday, he woke us up at 11:30, 1 am, 3 am, 6:45 am and went again at 8:30 am.) And Dr. Hawkins said he doesn’t seem in pain. So we’ll stick with the ultrasound on Saturday and go from there.

Tomorrow is going to be a big day: we get 4 cubit yards of top soil! Who knew I’d be so happy about dirt? But it’s one step closer to getting the sod on Saturday and by Sunday we’ll have a lawn. Yay for David!

And lastly – there’s a fly in the house. Welcome to summer. Bzzzzz.
