30DOC – Origami Butterflies … THURSDAY Day 10
The Golden Aztec Swallowtail Butterfly.
Yes, it was a real bitch folding that Aztec design on the wingspan.
I also got a late start because I had to take Mlle. Renee to the vet today. I had made her appointment a week and a half ago because she had several vaccinations due. Then over the weekend she had a lot of problems dealing with the neighborhood pryomaniacs who were determined to send their entire month’s food budget up in a cloud of sulfurous smoke. I noticed that she wasn’t her usual happy dog self. Tuesday I noticed that she was scratching her left ear with her hind leg. Something only a dog can do. When I checked it I noticed that her ear was a little puffy. This morning when I was getting her ready to go to the vet, it was a lot puffier.
The vet tech knew what it was as soon as we walked into the exam room. She had an ear infection, and in shaking her head and/or scratching her ear she had broken a small blood vessel. Her vet decided to treat it with meds for a week before resorting to surgical treatment which would involve splitting the ear flap in half. I also got instructions on washing a dog’s ear out and putting in the medication to treat the infection. It took two young lady techs to hold Renee to wash out her ears. Tonight, she let me do it all by myself. Without a whimper, too! I felt like the kindly Dr. Kildare of the dog world. (OK, I confess, I was a food inspector with the U.S. Army Veterinarian Corps when I was in the Army in my younger days. And on the Friday Animal Clinic Day, I assisted the Post Veterinarian with treating the animals.)
After a half day at the vet hospital and several vaccinations, Renee was all tuckered out and spent the afternoon napping.
