While Kyla was sick

When I first came here in October, Kyla warned me about Them. She said They were good people but were klutzy. He’d starve if He were a handyman and She’s no better as a seamstress. Thank goodness They have other marketable talents. For example, Kyla told me that someone gave Them a gift


They had some guests over and put these out on the table. The first guest used the black one and out came salt. DUHHH-bet you saw that coming.

While I was out of it over the weekend, the vet asked Them to take Kyla’s temperature a few times and record the readings. He went out and bought a good one-it must be a good one because it was quality made in China. Nobody would ship bad stuff for such a great distance and expect it to sell so it had to be good.


They even took Kyla’s temperature successfully twice and They remembered not to put it in her mouth but in the rear! Yay, team. They were feeling really good about Themselves until the time came to take Kyla’s temperature for the third time. He turned it on, the digital screen lit up for a split second and then went blank. There were no instructions on or in the package and He thought the battery might be dead. Ok, time to return it. Before going back to the store to return it, He had to go to the vet to pick up new meds for Kyla. He asked a vet tech about the thermometer. She said that the battery could be changed if you pulled the light green head off. She did that and asked why it was all wet inside. He said He assumed She cleaned it. With water? Probably-She probably cleaned it and put it in the dishwasher to make certain. The vet tech gave Him a look like she just got salt from a pepper shaker. Clean it with alcohol, not water. ย UPDATE:ย She says She didn’t use the dishwasher and did use alcohol. The problem was that She washed off the alcohol with water.

Things need to come with instructions. “Salt and Pepper shakers for Dummies”. “Temperature for Dummies”. It’s a good thing Kyla’s back and helping me to keep Them from destroying the world by opening a can of dog food in one of Their unique ways.

  15. Hi Everyone, we asked the bloggers for help yesterday and they sent us to you. Our Sebastian apparently has pancreatitis. He was diagnosed yesterday and we don’t have any experience with this disorder, so we’re looking for advice.

    He’s taking antibiotics and eating I/D coated with pig pancreas powder. We’re trying to make sure he gets no fat and that’s hard because with ten of us dogs in the house we like our treats.

    It’s nice to meet you and we’ll stay in touch.
    Morgan, Sebastian, the Porties, Syd and Mac
