New Year

This new year is already starting on the wrong foot.  Truffalo attacked Mocha this morning and opened up a big gash underneath her left eye.  Luckily urgent care was open and we brought her over for treatment.  All the work-up, anesthesia, and treatment so far is costing 3xs the roundtrip airfare for 2 from OC to NY.  What’s worse is that she has a fever, swelling in the left hind leg (which is probably causing her walking difficulties) and left lip, with swollen lymph nodes all over her body.  I see the writing on the wall, but am still hopeful that it’s just an infection and not the spread of the melanoma.

I know better, this is not going to be a good year…

      He punishment was in the form of a 5-mile run after we dropped Mocha off at urgent care. We figured if he’s tired he wouldn’t cause any trouble.

    Maybe Truffalo senses something’s wrong with Mocha, but doesn’t know exactly what, is therefore a bit anxious, and reacts by lashing out at her. I don’t know.
