My Poor Baby

I had to take my little Zoey poodle girl to the vet today because I thought she might have an ear infection. She has been shaking her head a lot and sometimes when she scratches her ear she lets out a loud yelp. So sure enough, she has an ear infection. They had to pull a bunch of hair out of her ears. She not only had hair that needed to be plucked down in her ear that Petsmart did not take out like I asked them to (never take your dog for grooming at Petsmart. I learned my lesson), but she also had an infection and on top of that allergies (hopefully just seasonal) which are making her ears, belly and feet all red and itchy. She was not a happy camper today. She has been crying a lot tonight because she is in a lot of discomfort. I feel bad for my baby. I did buy her a new shirt from the dollar ($2.50?? Call it the $2.50 spot then, stupid Target full of lies) spot at Target. It is pink and white and says pampered. I "let" her wear it to the vet :-) The good news is when they weighed her she had lost a pound and they said she was now at more of a healthy weight! They told me she was fat last time. No really they said, "You know she's fat, right?" Yay, go me! I was such a proud mama of my little weight watchers baby. Now if only I could do so well myself ;-) Anyway, I feel bad for my baby, but worse for my bank account. That little biatch cost me $160! What the hell? I've already paid for her to see an animal eye specialist for her non-tear-producing eyes and now she has to go and get all allergic and infected. I swear! Well, at least I know who she takes after in the maintenance department. Definitely not her dad.

    Poor little ZoeZoe. I do recall someone saying to you maybe another dog isn't such a good idea. They are expensive. Remember poor Guthrie who had chronic ear and skin issues? Cha-ching! $$$

    Wait a minute... One Pound equals No Longer Fat? Did I read that right?!

    Awww poor baby. I'm sending get well wishes!

    We were totally having a conversation about Target and their deceptive 2 for $5.00 spot. The bastards!

    I am NOT going to say I told you so about taking your dog to get groomed at Pet Smart. I am kind and loving and supportive. You learn from your mistakes. I am proud of you.

    Poor Zoey!

    Oh the poor baby. I would probably cry if I hurt my babies in discomfort.

    Now what the heck is a dollar spot at Target? I don't recall seeing that at our local Target.
