The dogs don’t like the rearrangement of the living room. I think they find it unlivable. Mindy in particular is having a very hard time with it. Now I see how much she doesn’t see because with things in unfamiliar places plus she has to “make do” with the other end of the sofa. She is no longer able to get to the front door in the same way, either and she LOVES the front door where she can go out to the lawn and visit all the people who come by in the morning. She could still go out the front door, but the floor freaks her out. She’s not a happy dog. She had clearly memorized her route. The wood floors are slippery and someone ( dum dee dum dee dum, who?) needs to clip her nails. I don’t mind clipping them. SHE minds me clipping them. We’ll probably go see uncle vet next week and someone will do that for us…
Uncle Vet hasn’t seen Mindy in three years. Last time I called for a refill of her meds I was told, “Uncle Vet says you should bring in your dogs for a check up. We haven’t seen them in a while and they all need shots.”
“OK. How about today?”
“We’re booked solid.”
My vet treats large animals, even bigger than Dusty and Bear. Sometimes people bring their bull, cow or horse to the vet in a livestock trailer. I’ve been there when the vet was outside in the parking lot checking out four sheep in a trailer. I like my vet very, very much. The first visit was in September 2014 and the “patient” was Mindy. The vet lifted her up on the examining table, checked out her musculoskeletal structure and said, “This poor pup was born with one leg longer than the other.” Mindy’s limp explained, and an explanation of why she’s always had a hard time getting around and why she was not an old dog when my friend adopted her, just gimpy.
In other news, though you cannot tell it from where you are, I am writing on a new laptop. I’ve had it for months, but as the other one was working mostly OK, I didn’t feel the need to switch. Yesterday the track pad on the old computer began acting as if it had a mind of its own and the “e” key decided it was done.
This MacBook Pro looks very like the old one (one wants more change when one invests a lot of money) but it is different. It’s lighter. the on/off switch is now a key. The trackpad is more responsive than the old one ever was. I’m sure in time the keys will wear down as they have on all my laptops (and desk tops). It’s faster than the old one ever was. I plan to use it differently, too.
