I mentioned a while back that Penny had been to the vet.
I came away from that visit with a little collection of medications and potions.
She is already on a daily dose for her arthritis. The new bunch consisted of a goo that I had to inject into her mouth for three days. That was a disaster but never mind. She survived. The next was a tablet that I have to give her once a month which is no problem. I also got a medication consisting of two large metal blister things, obviously containing two pills or capsules. One was to be given to her two weeks after her visit and the next one six months later.
Yesterday I remembered the two mystery blisters. I reckoned that it was around two weeks since the visit and if it wasn’t then the medication hardly had a built in timer [though nothing would surprise me these days]. I popped the first blister in anticipation. There was a chunk of stuff inside that looked like half an Oxo cube. The problem now was how to feed it to the dog. Do I crumble it over her dinner or do I say a prayer to the gods and hope she takes it as a treat?
I offered her the “tablet” or whatever you want to call it. She sniffed it and took it. She chewed it and rolled it around her mouth. She swallowed and then looked for another one. Success!
Now my problem was how I was going to remember to give her the other dose in six months time. Six months from June the 25th?
Happy Christmas Penny.
I have your present already.
try using a decent computer diary
I don’t need one. I’m sure people are going to start reminding me that Christmas is coming. In fact I’m expecting them to start any day now. After all, it’s less than six months away.
You may indeed remember that it’s Christmas from all the clues everywhere, but will you remember why you need to remember it’s Christmas, other than just sending expensive festive gifts to all your regular commenters?
I read the post title and thought you must have a spy camera in my kitchen. I made a batch of mince pies yesterday.
Merry Christmas*, indeed.
* “Merry Christmas” because it’s often used along with a New Year greeting and “Happy Christmas and a Merry New Year” isn’t quite right. 😉
