And off to the vet we went, again.
The weather has taken a turn since yesterday and this morning as well. It is cooler and it rains quite a lot at the moment. We went down to the creek this morning and I regret it almost immediately. I didn´t want them to walk in the high wet grass where ticks loves to stay and the first thing Hector did was to walk in there. So I told him to come back just to see Orvar walking in there instead.
So I told Orvar to come back and he simply refused. No matter what I said he just refused and suddenly he just laid down in the grass. I must admit that it is hard dragging a 99 pound dog from a place he refuses to leave 🙂 🙂 I think I might have broken a finger when I tried to lift him up 🙂 🙂 🙂 it hurts like h… at the moment but I can move it 🙂 While I was occupied with Orvar Hector naturally had to walk in there again, so they both had to wear leashes for the rest of the walk along the creek.
I think this might be a reaction towards the fact that I have had to care about Nova a bit more since her ear got bad. Even though none of the boys would like her medicine or me looking in their ears they still probably think she gets way to much attention at the moment.
And that is something I have to keep on doing for a while. Nova started to shake her head yesterday evening again and it was her left ear that troubled her again. So off to the vet we went again and the vet told me that her ear is made to get infected. It looks like a moon landscape in there. Lots of mountains and craters. So she will continue with the antibiotics for ten more days and this time I have to drop the cortisone straight in to her ear.
Nova may not be a big dog but she sure knows how to put up a fight 🙂 🙂 🙂 I´m supposed to drop three drops two times a day straight in to her ears and I tried some minutes ago 🙂 🙂 🙂 I think I eventually managed to get those drops in to her ear because she doesn´t shake her head any longer 🙂 By the way, Orvar, Hector and I are the best of friends again 🙂 As soon as we had left the creek they were released from the leashes and after that they behaved perfectly and has done so all day 🙂
It is time for me to have something to eat now. I haven´t had anything since breakfast seven hours ago. The tea is already by my side and I think I´ll make a sandwich or two 🙂 Have a great day!
