Today rated high on the hectic scale! I had to go in to the office for an important meeting, Dory had a follow up vet appointment for her ears, I came down with a sinus infection and I had a doctor appointment and then Dory went with me down to Providence, Rhode Island to visit our friend Michael who cuts my hair!!! I think today met the definition of "crazy busy"!!

Anyhow - BEST NEWS OF THE DAY: The vet says Dory's ears are 95% better than they were two weeks ago. There was only a smidge of the remaining yeast infection on the swab slide and vet said she could see clearly down in the ear canal and everything looked great.


Believe me when I say even Dory audibly sighed with relief when she heard the good news. All that we need to do now is finish up her meds this next week and do weekly cleanings going forward. Ear infections aren't fun for man or beast and the Young family is glad this episode has come to a fairly quick and happy ending.

So, while Dory isn't very fond of what Chris calls "Health Care" activities, ear cleaning will become part of our regimen - joining the already Dory-dreaded tooth brushing and nail clipping.
