What I'm Seeing Now

Forlornity

Forlornity noun - the act of feeling forlorn (made up word and definition).
Forlorn adjective - pitifully sad and lonely.

This pitiful and forlorn dog has just returned from the vet.  She is VERY unhappy.

She got an ear infection and scratched her ear to the point of tearing the skin.

The vet asked if she had had a bath recently. 

"Yes, just about 10 days ago."

"Well, they must have gotten some water in her ear.  Where did you have it done?"

"Here."

Yes, we took our dog, Jenny, to the vet for a bath because she was apparently dealing with fleas.  I thought it best to have the vet bathe her to eliminate those fleas. 

It worked.

And $207 later, here we are!  With two weeks yet of antibiotics!

Is this not a picture of FORLORNITY?

I can see her tail wagging.  She will be OK.  A vet visit for me is $600+ with 2 Hounds and LONG EARS

It is amazing how much these little furry friends mean to us. I hope your dog is doing better.

We hardly come away from there for less than $200 no matter what Wallace.

She is, thanks, David.  In addition to the antibiotic, she gets ear drops twice a day and a cream on the skin lesions.  She's still very upset about the cone though!

Good afternoon, Jay. Hm-m-m-m, kinda reminds me of the golden fleece or is that flease. LOL...

Good story, Jay.  I took my dog in to find out why she was losing fur, and they said she had seborrhea.  So they suggested that they bathe her because they didnt think the groomer would do it right.  My poor baby came home so traumatized, she peed in the car!  Now I bathe her with their special soap.   Now, having said that, I should also say that my vet really cares about my dog and me... but every time I go, it's another $100 ...at least!  Oh well, good post!

Michael - well, I know who gets all my gold!

Roberta - they don't like that place, do they!?  Ours didn't like the bath either.

Jay,

I have to cone two of my dogs and that is never fun. They truly hate them cones.  Then they get to walk around and bang on stuff.  Good luck.

Posted by Donald Hester, NCW Home Inspections, LLC (NCW Home Inspections, LLC) over 9 years ago

I'm sure that your dog will be thrilled to get the cone off. Hope everything worked out okay for both of you Jay.

Oh she does John!  And into my legs!  She's very upset.

Don - she is a banger too.  There are a lot of dings in it where she has bent it on something!

Tom - she goes back on Thursday.  Hopefully it's all cleared up!  Thanks.

Cosmo just rid of his not so jeweled collar for the same sort of scratching ....and learned quickly, no matter how we attached it....to take it off...now let's see if cats are smarter than dogs...how long will it take Jennie to figure out how to remove it ?

It's been on for 10 days now S&D, and so far she is unable!

Nothing more sad.  I think the vet has a piece of my mortgage now.

Posted by Jack Gilleland (Home Inspection and Investor Services, Clayton) over 9 years ago

It's amazing isn't it Jack!  I bet you do, with those two beasts.  You should be receiving thank you cards!

The question you've got to sak is howmany viewers turned their heads sideways to seee the dogs face. All of 'em I'd bet.

She is very unhappy, Robert, at any angle.
