It is definitely Monday.
My weekend flew by, most likely because I spent almost all of it either cleaning the house or working in the yard. Except for the time that I spent feeding all the birds that drop by and that’s a big chunk of time as well.
Because, Chopsticks is back,
And of course Charles comes around every morning and every afternoon to eat. If I don’t come right out, he knocks. Boomer and Hank could care less. It’s pretty evident in this picture,
I didn’t run on Saturday, instead I did a simulated hike on my treadmill and then on Sunday I ran 8 miles. I got 34 miles in last week, 30 running, 4 walking. I also did 3 yoga sessions and 2 strength training sessions.
MacGyver treated me to lunch on Sunday at the Little Greek Fresh Grill. So worth it.
And that was the extent of my weekend other than the aforementioned cleaning and yard work, which was just joyous.
This morning Hank is getting his dental cleaning and if this post seems short it is because I’m worried about my little guy. I had planned on writing all about the new training but that will have to wait until tomorrow.
The vet called me on Friday to let me know that Hank’s ALT was high. She said typically it should be around 120 but his was 320. I made the mistake of googling this and all kinds of fear set in. Fortunately I mentioned it to my Mom and she told me the same thing happened to her Pomeranian before he had teeth pulled because he had an infection. I’m hoping that is what it is.
We are going to have his blood re-tested in a month but in the meantime, Hank is at the vet right now and they’ve already called to let me know he needs at least 8 extractions and the bill is already over a thousand dollars. Poor thing’s gonna have some jacked up bubba teeth. So if y’all wanna send Hank a little love, it is much appreciated, cash is good too.
I’ll be back tomorrow with that training plan and some other things but mostly I’ll be glad Monday is over.
What’s the most amount you’ve paid for a vet bill? I hate admitting this but when Ruby was sick I spent 18,000 dollars on her vet bills.
Do you think 1,200 dollars for a dental cleaning and 8 extractions is a lot? It seems excessive to me. Any vets out there? I’d love to hear from you.
