An early snowy-rainy start for the day before Thanksgiving that began with the holistic vet coming to see Gus. He really enjoys her visits, that really are helping him. Gus literally turns into jello during treatments. I really need to take a photo of the visible smile on his face that radiates contentment during her visits. Dr. E is kind, caring and compassionate. Those qualities are really needed when your vet practice is solely providing supportive care for dogs like Gus, who on the 23rd passed the six month mark that he's been with us. A milestone that one vet and a few doubters didn't think possible.
After Dr. E left it was time to venture out onto the snowy, wet and sloppy roads to do a few errands.
One stop was the laundromat to wash quilts, blankets and dog beds. With the change machine not working, I decided to go to a bank across the street to get $10 in quarters. The bank wouldn't give it to me because I don't bank there. A single roll of quarters, really? I even had a $10 bill. The teller seemed embarrassed that she couldn't give it to me, and asked another who didn't want to break the rules, and a third that the other two seemed to defer to, didn't want to be bothered by such a trivial request-- Because after all, I don't bank there. I got the roll of quarters from the feed store where I buy bird food. Customer service at its worst. But Todd enjoying the snow, that's not going to last, the best!
To all of you celebrating tomorrow, Happy Thanksgiving!!
