|Our new Boston Terrier + Beagle rescue puppy! |
If only she slept like that through the whole night....
|This is what a very sick kitty looks like. He couldn't walk or easily |
lift his head. My heart broke when I saw this.
|Noelle / Charlie! Awww...|
Our new puppy - a feisty Boston Terrier + Beagle mix who we plan to name either Noelle (for the holiday season) or Charlie (as in Chaplin: check out that Hitler-esque mustache!) - has been an exasperating delight as she wiggles and piddles her way into our hearts. Diesel is expected to make a full recovery. Under the watchful care of my sister and the fantastic veterinary staff at Nob Hill Cat Clinic and All Animals Emergency Hospital, he's fought his way back from kidney failure to 100% normal blood-work - "a miracle!" according to one of his caretakers. Just 24-hours after emergency surgery the vet technician "could barely hear Diesel's heartbeat over his purring."
I planned to write a blog post about how my thoughts about appearance change when I come home for the holidays, but I just haven't been thinking much about that topic in the past few days. I suppose it's a healthy sign that worrying about a new baby (puppy) and a deathly ill furry friend took precedence over worrying about my looks. Right now I don't really care if it's healthy or not, so long as they are healthy!
|Diesel, on a better day!|
P.S. - "Noelle" vs. "Charlie" ... Discuss!
