Yesterday, two members of The Herd had vet appointments and one of them executed a great escape. We will let you guess which one and reveal it at the end of our post.
As we discussed a couple of weeks ago, Typhoon had, once again, hit a streak of food finickiness, essentially refusing meal after meal. We took him to the vet (again), his blood work checked out fine (again), and we changed his diet (again). Yesterday was his weigh-in and he had gained from 40.3 lbs to 40.8 lbs. Ok, we were hoping for more, but at least it is directionally correct. And he has not skipped a meal in days. Next weigh-in will happen in about two weeks.
Ever since having a massive mass removed from her liver in July, we have celebrated Natasha’s enthusiasm, energy and zest for life; but we have also monitored her health very closely. Yesterday was one of those check-up days where we had an ultrasound performed. Details to come (we promise!).
And that leads us to the question – which one of these rascals executed the great escape effort at the vet’s office.
Yes, yes, Queen Natasha the Evil decided she had had enough. The fact that she has had two major surgeries in the last year is not relevant. The fact that she was partially sedated so that the ultrasound could be done is not relevant. The fact that she is twelve years old is not relevant.
She was tired of being in her recovery crate so she opened her door and tried to go for a walk-a-bout.
P.S. – No worries. The staff caught her within a couple of steps (that sedation might have slowed her down by a step or two), but they were all amused at her crate opening skills. Hu-Dad just shrugged and muttered something about Siberian Husky Escape Skills.
