We are trying to save money and budget – I swear!! But this weekend has just been awful!
Saturday – I get back from an errand to drop the dog off before my hair appointment. I get out of the car and hear a hissing noise and turn to see BOTH my front tires go completely flat. One tow from triple A and a trip to Sears later, I’m out a couple hundred bucks but I can drive again.
Sunday – nothing much happens. (thank the lord!)
Today – we take our puppy and the dog we’re sitting on a short walk and then load them into the car to go to Petsmart. As I am signing in the puppy for her pre-spay checkup, the other dog starts vomiting un controllably, with blood shot eye and her tongue going blue! The vets leap into action and within about 30 minutes she’s on IV hydration and stabilized. She has apparently managed to dangerously overheat from the walk. So we have to call our friend, explain the situation and wait to see what happens. Because it’s emergency care, the cost has gone through the roof and there is nothing worse than not only landing your friend’s dog in the emergency room, but then also saddling her with a huge bill.
So we feel horrible, the dog is still under observation and our friend is coming home early. Let’s just call this a terrible holiday weekend and get it over with.
