Playing nursemaid

So, Hoshi is rather sick. According to the vet, who was kind enough to quell my panic attack, I did not get my dog sick. He did it all by himself.  I watch him like a hawk when we go outside because he likes to put everything in his mouth. Everything. It’s gross. But somehow, the sweet darling managed to ingest something without me seeing, and he’s been suffering from a bad stomach ache.

Now, he’s taking his medications and sleeping. I’m pretty sure I looked pretty crazy when I took him into the vet. I haven’t slept because he’s been needing to go outside a lot, and…well…I hadn’t had time to shower, so there’s that. I’m sure the vet’s office was thrilled to see my at their door right as they opened.

Luckily, he should be back to normal in a few days. You should have heard him when they took his temperature. Try and picture a 63 pound dog whine like a Chihuahua because he feels violated. It would have been hilarious if I wasn’t so worried. He’s only slightly pathetic.

At least I have some peace of mind now, and a whole pot of coffee should help me get through some work before I inadvertently fall asleep.

Happy Friday, dear readers.

It’s been a while…anyone still there?

Yep. I’m pretty sure I haven’t posted in a few weeks. I just haven’t had anything interesting to post about. Really, it would have been an account of me sitting in front of my computer twiddling my thumbs (yes, I do that). I had started my new job, which I really liked, but I was put under review (completely normal when starting at the company), but the review took longer than expected because it came during Thanksgiving break.

So, I’ve just been working on school work, and hopefully I will get an answer back from them today. I’m technically on break from school, but it’s been nice to work on research and writing without the deadline peering over my shoulder. I generally work really well with deadlines. It makes me work faster, and I’m pretty great at time management, but every time I sent it work I was always wondering if it was too rushed because of my timeline. Working without a deadline has also let me work on stuff other than my thesis. I will admit, I’ve become rather attached to my thesis work, but taking a break and writing for fun has been nice.

On a random note, our puppy has been growing and growing lately. I don’t think he’ll ever stop. He’s a little over 60 lbs, and he just turned six months old.

Look at my ears! (Look at this face! How could you resist this face? You can’t. He demands attention all the time. He’s also the biggest snuggle bug ever.)

He’s a couch puppy, and I think he takes up more of the couch than I do. I keep thinking he’s going to level out, and not grow so quickly, but I swear he’s taller than he was last week. He’s a sweetie, and he’s rocking puppy training classes. I’m a proud puppy parent.

Welp. That’s it. I hope you are having a phenomenal Friday, dear readers. You know, if you’re still reading. :3
