I noticed one of Joey’s toes is swollen, so I took him to the veterinarian.
I confess, as soon as I saw his swollen toe I was very worried about Joey. He is 9 or 10 years old and a 100 pound Labrador/Great Pyrenees mix. That puts him in the geriatric range and increases his risk for health problems.
I am glad to report that Joey will be fine. The veterinarian found a small cut on the toe, which became infected. He doesn’t have a fever and there is no sign that the infection spread past his toe. The doctor prescribed and antibiotic and an anti-inflammatory.
Joey needs a few days of TLC and he will be back to his rambunctious self in no time.
I can never get enough books. When I walk into a bookstore or a library, I feel a sense of wonder and awe. I am surrounded by so many stories, so much information, and so many things that I can learn. Where do I begin? How can I pick just one or two books?
