Took China to the vet's this morning. We love our animals, but lemme just say that there is a hierarchy here. Humans come first, furry animals second, scaly animals third.
So, unless it's for routine vaccinations and checks, things have to get ugly for us to hang out at the vets. It's ugly.
See the thing on her ear? She's had it for a while. It was originally about the size of a grape under the skin. At one check, the vet said it wasn't anything serious, just "something old dogs often get". She drained the grape, and we were on our way. I was tempted to take a Xacto-knife to it with a bit of vodka.
In the last few weeks, it's gone from dry grape to sweaty cherry tomato.
You know it's gross when even the vet says, "Eeew". I'm thinking that vets see a lot of gross stuff, so to get an "Eeew" is quite an accomplishment for a dog. That's our China - classic overachiever.
It doesn't seem to bother her much, but she's not much of a complainer in general.
She's got a surgical table with her name on it reserved for next week, for nearly the price of that third bicycle I can't justify buying...
... because she's not a fish.
