First Dum-Dum Stupid misplaced the camera so there aren’t many pictures until we find it again. There was a lot of excitement yesterday. First, we eat breakfast at 8am (by the latest-the Kyla breakfast campaign starts at 7:30). After we finish, Kyla starts the dessert campaign which will not be given until 9:00. Yesterday (Thursday), we had our dessert of green beans. Now you understand Kyla is a vacuum cleaner (Hoover) and green beans don’t have a long life expectancy on the floor. I’ve learned this and I Hoover them up before Kyla comes for them. Kali didn’t know this. She took her leisurely time and when Kyla and I were finished, Kali still had beans to eat. Here comes Kyla-no green bean is safe. Kali tried to protect her food with a warning growl “They’re MINE” but all food is Kyla’s. There was a 2 second altercation and the 24 pound (11.4 kilo) oldster was winning until He broke it up. Kali started limping but after a couple of minutes, she was normal. 15 minutes later she was limping and holding her left front paw up and not putting weight on it. Off they went in the ScottieMobile to the vet. The vet saw a puncture wound on the knee and recommended putting Kali under and investigating. OK-we’ll do that. Still having the camera, He encountered another Scottie entering the vet’s office. A Scottie sighting is very rare. He took a picture of Tabby, a beautiful female Scot and her SUV which had a “I love my Scottie” sticker on it. Kali was ready in a couple of hours and she got bitten in the knee and the vet took out some foreign matter (Kali fur) from the joint which could have left her limping for life. After antibiotics and pain meds, Kali returned. She wasn’t too energetic that night but on Friday, despite leg wraps and a stitch in her knee, she was frapping with Kaci and there was no stopping her. Hopefully she’ll be OK for life and Stupid will find the camera.
Here’s a picture taken about 25 km (15 miles) from our house. It was taken by Lilly, the rescue greyhound next door and for those of you who don’t know, these are real cattle and working cowboys. No, it’s not a vintage photo, it was taken in 2014.
