Day off

Things have been so busy this year that I have had to start scheduling time off so I can attend to my own business and have special time with Izzy.

Today, we started the day at the vet for a full health check. We are awaiting some urinalysis to double-check on Izzy’s kidney function but her vet notes tell me that she’s in good shape for a 12 1/2 year old greyhound:

  • Her musculature is ‘reasonable’ despite her arthritic wrists (carpi).
  • She has mild dental wear ‘but otherwise great oral health for age.’
Izzy was ready to go at the vet’s while I paid the bill

Then, we met our friends Marie and Ben for a late breakfast.

Izzy was more interested in watching the wild winter weather out of the window in the cafe than she was in paying any attention to her friend, Ben.

And then, it was time for me to drop Izzy home for a rest. I always leave Izzy with an activity of some type; today was a food toy:

Izzy is a priority for me and it’s very important that we have quality time together; you make time for the ones that you love.
