Vet Visits...

If you can, spare a good thought for Miss Sophie today.  She has been a little under the weather lately and I am not sure whether she isn't feeling well or if it's just a case of jealousy.  Sophie loves puppies and she has accepted Rease into the home with little issue. But, there's still a little jealousy when someone new comes in as it means my attention is spread just a little thinner.  Plus, there's LOTS going on around here with the advent of packing and cleaning. And, finals start today (hope my grade 7 and 8's do ok on their finals... some are looking freaked out and some are refusing to study!) so my attention is incredibly split.

Anyway, Sophie is missing a big patch of fur on her tail, at the tip. And, she's lost some fur around her nose and eyes lately. So, it's to the vet we go because combined with her general lethargy, I am worried.  She'll get her checkup and shots but I'm also getting bloodwork done to make sure her liver is ok with the Deramaxx she takes. And, I'm getting her thyroid checked. I hope she's alright and it's an easy fix....

Lots of NBD (No Big Deal) vibes for Sophie - something that a little tonic or an (inexpensive) medication will fix.
Congrats on the new house, by the way - how exciting! Deep breaths through the next couple of weeks, and you'll soon all be settled in your new place and enjoying the rest of the summer. :)

With everything going on, it seems likely Sophie could be feeling a bit down. I hope it's nothing serious and she's back to her old self soon.

BTW, we just returned from a week's vacation after having all our floors refinished. Honey was a bit down too after all the changes in her schedule. And that was just a vacation and a small construction job.

We will be thinking of her and keeping paws crossed!
