DOG GONE BAD VET

I chose our veterinary clinic because it was AAHA certified. I wasn’t impressed with the facilities but the owner/vet seemed competent enough and he was supposed to be available at all times for emergencies. Not only was he not available when we needed him this weekend (See UPDATE), he NEVER RETURNED OUR CALL!

I don’t think that there is anything left to say. He promised a standard of care that was not there. I will not take that risk again. He’s history.

ADDENDUM I think Little-Bit is O.K., but I will be following up with our new vet.

ADDENDUM AGAIN- The vet and his staff called me numerous times on Monday and Tuesday.  Awkward. The excuse given was that the answering service had taken down my number incorrectly. Don’t most answering services have caller ID? I am not changing my mind. Choosing a new vet is never easy, though…

HAPPY ENDINGWell, the answering service sent a transcript of their recording and they had written my number incorrectly as well as my name. I also received an written apology from the operator who had made the error. So I have rescheduled Black Cat’s check-up for this week and we will continue with this practice. Let you know how that goes.

WELL, NOT SO MUCH- Black Cat got carsick in every possible way on the short drive over and then almost escaped. They made me sign something agreeing to pay $25.00 if I cancel an appointment. Then we spent over $300 for a yearly checkup for a healthy cat. We were there almost two hours but part of that was B.C.’s fault as they had to clean her up. I’m sure, if I look closely at my itemized bill, that I was charged for that.

Himself met the vet and didn’t like him either. We really can’t put our finger on why that is. Something about his demeanor.

I don’t see this relationship working out long term, do you?

WHO’S THE BOSS?

White dog (Bebe) trying to dominate Black Cat (B.C.).

Cat says, “O.K. but just for a minute.”

Usually they are great pals.

THINGS THAT MAKE ME HAPPY:

I got this idea from a little friend of mine who blogs with the best of them. Of course, she had her list be links. I don’t know how to do that yet. (Hey, it’s a process!) I was just thinking about making a whole page of lists that I would update on a regular basis. Which I will learn how to do soon-along with adding pictures. So here is my first baby list:

Being a Mom

DH,DD and DS- you know who you are

Friends- old and new

Nice neighbors

Surprises!

GPS- wonderful invention that saves me from (literally) losing a child

Flowers- inside, outside, in the car

Perfume!

Purses

Pedicures- oh, the three P’s!

Daytrips

Tearooms

Collecting crosses

Open source

Babies!

Cooking for people I love- and the people they love

Watching the water- fountains, waves, a water hazard…

Cars that look like they’re moving when they are standing still

Eiderdown

Fur coats- OK, on puppies and kittens (nice save, huh?)

A bird in the breakfast room- cheerful way to start the day

Waking up to the smell of bacon and coffee

Mockingbirds singing to the moon at 3:00 am

Bluetooth- because I love it so much I call it my Boo-tooth

Clouds

Cashmere

Blue ceilings

Cards- especially Valentine’s Day

Cut glass, prisms and leaded glass- cheerful and sparkly. Does not tarnish.

Long scarves

Needlepoint

The orange WordPress logo

Candles

Playing cards

Beautiful boxes

A fire on a gray, dismal day

Books! Well, that leads me to another list!
