Have you ever had an oh no second, when as soon as you finished doing something you cried "oh no!"? Today I had one 😝 So I am giving Miss Molly her afternoon anti-seizure med. I set the pill on the counter with the intention of going to the fridge to get a little cream cheese ~ the magic potion that has her gobble down her pill. The next thing is my oh no second. I picked up the pill, took a swig of diet Coke and swallowed it. I don't think it had even made its way to my stomach when I realized what I had done. So I figure I should be just fine. The med - which is also a human med - is for a 15# dog so I don't need to worry, right? Well, for about a half hour I thought and thought about it and decided the smart thing would be to call the poison help line just to be reassured all is well. I had the sweetest poison control rep. She took my information, asked my age (Gulp! I assured her I did not have dementia), how much I weighed and what prescription meds I was on. Then she tells me that is not uncommon. I say "you mean I am not the only one who has done that?". Thankfully it is a human med and not just for animals. Then she asks how I feel, and I reply, "STUPID"!!!
My new decorating style is "yoga mats". For a long time I have contemplated getting some to put on the hardwood floor and kitchen linoleum to allow Molly traction on smooth surfaces. I finally broke down and got several. And then today, Molly actually started walking a little before falling over. I am hoping this helps her regain some strength in her hind legs. Please think good thoughts and keep her in your prayers.
Other than the bitter cold snap we had at Christmas, it has been a very mild winter. I think today is only the second day we have had any measurable snow. It was such a pretty snow ~ the kind where each flake sticks to every blade of grass and twig. Plus about 32* with absolutely no wind. The downside was that it curtailed my plans for the antique flea market about an hour from home. I got about halfway there before the snow started and since it quickly was sticking to the road, I turned around and came back home.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs 😊
