Today is a story involving odd couples – pairs that you do not normally see hanging out together, but circumstances conspired.
The first pairing – Miss Kiska and Typhoon Phooey. Many of you will remember that Queen Natasha was quite enamored with the Little Prince and welcomed his mischievousness. We suspect that she something of herself in the Little Imp. Miss Kiska, on the other hand, thinks he is entirely too bouncy.
But they shared a Jeep ride and an exam room for vet visits on Monday. Good news for both of them. Miss Kiska is probably 13 years old or more, a guess from her 11 years here at Chez Herd. But her labs and exam all showed a quite healthy dog.
And Mr. Typhoon weighed in at 44.2 pounds, up almost a pound from his last weigh in 2 weeks ago (and 5.4 pounds from his low weight back at the beginning of April). We are continuing with steroid treatment for his appetite, though we did reduce it 25% this week.
(Note – A follow up from an earlier post. All of Qannik’s tests ruled out all of our concerns, so we are treating him for advanced arthritis for now.)
Upon the return from the vet, two brothers we don’t normally see together were hanging out.
Our thoughts were that Landon and Typhoon would be best buddies, but it never happened. Landon adores his big brother Frankie and Typhoon considers Boom Boom entirely too bouncy, a quite ironic turn of events considering Typhoon’s early days here. But here they are spread out on the study floor together, even if Typhoon does think that Landon is invading his space.
