It was the usual hurried pace at the start of the week for us. However it slowed down by Thursday when I got to enjoy dinner with an out of town friend who I have gotten to know via blogging and facebook. I always look forward to the chance to get together with a friend or two, and I'm so glad that "she" made time on her busy trip to get together.
The week ended with my getting off work early and rushing home to get ready for the holistic vet to come and see Gus. For some reason, this was no easy task. It started when I gave Todd two new balls to play with. I went inside for a few minutes only to rush back out again because Todd and Gus were having a "disagreement" over one of them. Todd takes these disagreements pretty seriously, too seriously actually.
But with such limited mobility, Gus is no match for Tod; and thankfully there were no injuries. But with Cricket and the others on the sidelines taking bets and cheering on the fight, everyone was pretty excited. The scuffle was easy enough to break up, I just picked Todd up. Even in my arms Todd was trying to continue the fight; he's such a Scottie! It did take some doing, but I finally managed to get everyone settled down. All that only to have Dr. E cancel the appointment after she was already scheduled to be at our house. It was okay, another family needed her more, and I understand.
But even today Todd is still not willing to share that new red ball with anyone.
Not even Cricket, and certainly not Gus.
Forget the other new blue ball, he wants the red one all to himself.
