First, an update: Since everyone was so kind during Gus's health scare, I wanted to let you all know the very good news! His spinal tap and other brain tests came back perfectly normal, so he's probably got that weird, but harmless, head wobbling movement disorder.
We're supposed to keep an eye on him and take him in if there's anything weird, but the regular vet and the neurologist vet were both very pleased with all his test results and think that there's nothing major to worry about.
Now, a confession: I can't watch the Olympics.
"let's exclude some ski jumpers just because they're girls" thing, but that's not why. I can't watch because they always, always, always pan the camera to the losers face at the end of the event.
I just can't take it, my heart breaks every time.
Westminster Dog Show instead of skating. (fyi, Gus and Ollie already won Best in World)
Their cameramen still pan over to show the losers, but win or lose the dogs wag their tails, get treats and look generally delighted. And the trainers look pretty happy too.
I thought my heart was safe, until the first commercial. (this isn't the exact one they showed, but it's the same idea.)
Dear Pedigree, just one question: are you trying to kill me?!?!?
foster a dog waiting for his forever home.
He was so not convinced, and suggested we change the channel to the Olympics before the next commercial break.
I can't really blame him, 2 dogs is already a lot and we've got a really busy spring and summer coming up, but I'd really like to find out more and see if it's something we can do sometime.
Gus and Ollie would love it. (I didn't pose them this way, just found them sleeping like that.)
Have any of you fostered a dog? Do you know anyone who has?
