The brushing of the Bear

Looks familiar, I’ve seen that snarl somewhere before….
Herr Bear did not react well to the recent forced (more story later) change of diet.
I’ve been wearing out my oppose-able thumbs on the doorknobs pretty much on demand and we’re still going to have to clean the carpet again. The first 3 days I was getting no sleep, and the next 3 I got maybe 2 hours at a time unless KoTHDL was home to work the doorknobs.
Tired enough now that things are getting strange .. well past the ‘too tired to sleep’ stage …
day 2 we had 2 dogs with the runs and every time I turned my back the damn cat would puke. Add in the fact that Bear needed at minimum a partial bath every 45 min and takes 3 hours to dry out…..
so now we have a trip to the vet, a house that you could use in a febreeze commercial and more pills for the magic fuzzy poopin machine.
Today his appetite came back and we began the brushing and untangling phase of what I hope is the final Bear-Cleaning this month.
final vet visit for staple removal today.
He does NOT like going to the vet anymore.. I dunno why..
weird, only 4 staples to remove .. sneaky bugger lost one someplace.
now he can scratch all he wants .. well maybe not ALL he wants
next BATH DAY!!
After yours truly gets a good night’s sleep… after 3 weeks of constant vigilance I’m a bit behind on the zzz’s
another DoOver moment….
apparently the stitches came out a bit too soon… one wonders how/why a highly trained professional veterinarian would confuse ‘this will ooze a bit’ with ‘that’s gonna come apart as soon as you blink’… She needs more training on how to BuildABear maybe …
one wonders and one gets a new vet to do the new staples and the unhappiness simmers while the bear heals
on the plus side none of his stuffin’s got out…
