Sable has an ear infection. She's had them before. I always know when she starts shaking her head. So now we are on the routine of ear wash and ear drops twice a day for two weeks. She is so smart when she sees me reach for the bottles she runs outside. And the real kicker, while struggling with Sable Lucy came up and nipped me on the back side. WHAT? I can't believe she would think I would harm Sable or either of them. It seems like Lucy done that to me before when I had to wrestle Sable to give her medicine. See how fast they turn? At any rate, the vet trip cost $162. Is that typical in your area for office visit, express anal glands, check ear for bacterial infection, plus meds?????
Sable Bear turned 8 years old today. She celebrated with her sister Lucy and Uncle Joe with beef ribs which took them no time to whittle down to nothing. I also got her a new red leather collar for her birthday/Christmas. Although it was a warm and rather muggy day here, she was much happier than she appears in this photo. I can't believe my baby is 8 years old. I feel so old.
I thought I was the only one that had or allowed canine family members hang out at the dinner table but after dinner at my brothers over the weekend I know different. The golden lab is Sable's brother Spike. I can't remember my nieces Lil rodent's name under the table.
