Nyx ingested a piece of sago palm root, which none of us knew is often lethal to dogs - and humans - if consumed (the damned dog seizes every opporunity to eat indiscriminantly - we haven't been able to break her of that behavior). Internet references place the canine mortality rate around 50%. Our emergency room vet said that, in her experience, the mortality rate is more like 80%. I had to sign a piece of paper acknowledging that Nyx would likely die even if we expended all the medical effort and corresponding money to save her - heavy stuff!!
|Cayley wanted a cake that was "exuberant" because "Nyx is exuberant". I myself have been called "irrationally exuberant", but not lately.|
|Celebratory dinner. I love Lawrence's face in this photo. It's the face that says, "My ass has officially been worn out by all this stuff."|
|Drug regime. The dog is now officially a junkie. Incidentally, the term "MT" is an old environmental waste management shorthand. It means "empty". In this case, take that pill on an MT stomach.|
