It is a NEW YEAR.

Welcome to Friday, the 12th day of June, 2020.

The sky is slightly overcast and there is a cool breeze wafting through our office window.

Alvin is resting on his little bed beside me.

Birds are chirping in the near distance.

 

I am attempting to download/upload my photos from my phone to the computer.

For some reason there is a snag and it does not look like I will be able to post some photos in today’s blog.

There one minute gone the next.

I guess my poor computer is getting old and downloading to add to the thousands of photos that I have saved to my computer is getting to be too much.

I sure hope that my computer can hang in for a few more years.

 

Alvin’s dental cleaning went great yesterday.

He had one incisor root molar extracted.

Not one of the large grinders.

So his appointment went well.

I spoke to the staff at the clinic three times before I picked him up.

First time they called to let me know that his Doctor had found a loose tooth and wanted to confirm okay to remove.

Also to let me know that they had a hard time finding a vein for the anesthesia.

Apparently Cocker Spaniels do not have great veins.

I don’t remember them having to try all four paws until this time.

Perhaps age has something to do with it.

Second time they called was to say that the surgery was over and all went well.

Anyway as he is older they give them a lower anesthesia so I guess he was active.

Mentioned should be ready for pick up between 2:30-3:00 p.m.

Our Jenn called at 2:00 to say that Alvin had woke up and wanted to come home.

I said I am on my way.

They always make a point of saying not much water or food initially.

But with Alvin …..

Another story.

I gave him a bit of water and he wanted more.

I tried but he fussed until he had enough.

One hour later he was eating.

and Eating.

and Eating.

He did not vomit and was not a bit in the least off.

He jumped up easily onto the sofa.

Two or three hours later I went upstairs and he followed.

Climbing with ease.

I am so grateful that he is a tough guy.

Kind of like his Momma.

So grateful to Dr. K and her Staff for taking such great care of him.

He is on painkillers and antibiotics.

Actually think that the painkiller has already dissipated and next time is supposed to be around noon today.

They gave him a shot yesterday.

So we are pretty much back to normal here.

I am so grateful.

He did get up to pee at 1:18 a.m. but then slept again until 4:35 and was hungry.

He wanted a biscuit a few minutes ago so I caved and gave him one.

Stubborn is not his middle name.

But it should be.

Oh, me Alvin.

 

Looks like photos will have to be for another day.

Getting close to time to start work.

I need some of the coffee that is sitting in a to go mug beside me.

 

Wishing you a great day.

Filled with promise and laughter.

Living each day with kindness and respect is the only way to live each day.

I/We shall remain,

As Always, Carol & Alvin

We will need to post a newer photo of the two of us.

This just happens to be one of my favourites.

Thank you to my super talented Photographer Paper Collage Artist daughter.

 

 

Motorbike just started and made both of jump.
