A small package arrived the other day. Not an unusual event. My husband put the package and the rest of the mail on the kitchen counter. Both of the dogs immediately stood near the counter, noses in the air. Such strange behavior.
My husband opened the package and the girls stood there as if the contents were intended for them.
He put the opened package on the counter. Lucy is sniffing away. Notice that she is very careful not to put her nose higher than the edge of the counter. That's strictly forbidden around here. As usual, she comes as close as possible without crossing the line.
I have no idea what has set the dogs into high gear. Then my husband showed me. The package contains their heart worm preventative and the company always includes a doggie biscuit. Actually, it's quite a BIG doggie biscuit.
Lucy smiles with anticipation and delight.
"I just know that's all for me, isn't it? We might as well send Ellie downstairs."
No, Lucy. The biscuit is plenty big enough to share.
Both girls watch excitedly as my husband breaks the unexpected treat. They always seem so surprised when they get a treat since they don't get them very often at all.
Relaxed and happy, the girls look toward me as if to say, "There wasn't another one in there by chance, was there?"
We order our medications Online because our veterinarian's office is a bit out of the way. As a convenience to his patients, he charges the same price as the Online company so he doesn't make any profit from them and we don't think we are harming his business. While we order our medications Online, we still take the girls in for annual physical examinations and blood work. In fact, I hate the commercials that tell me I am saving on vet bills when I order from them. Not true at all, and unsafe for your dogs as well.
---------------It's the last Friday in August!!! I'm not at all happy about seeing summer leave us. It has seemed so brief this year.
Make the most of this last August weekend. Forget about the house and yard. Just get up tomorrow morning and decide to do something fun. Stay safe and happy and enjoy your loved ones, human and animal.
