|01:51 pm - More Stuff, Post #17|
17 points for the 17th post:
1) So unbelievably tired, la la la.
2) Wednesday started it: the landscape guys put in my new plants in the driveway-adjacent beds (yay!), at the same time that Master Danger decided it was the Perfect Day to start throwing up (boo!).
3) The plants are already starting to take root, especially the powderpuff mimosa.
4) I'm anxiously eying the redbud tree, however. I find myself going out a few times a day and saying hearty words of encouragement. "You're going to do just fine! Grow on, little tree!"
5) Anyway, Master Danger was apparently just 'stressed,' according to his veterinarian.
6) She also diagnosed him with back pain (which is a recurring thing with him) and did acupuncture.
7) Let's just pause to contemplate Master Danger having needles stuck into him at various points.
8) He was chill, apparently. I find it hard to believe, but anyway. This might have to become a regular procedure.
9) Today I am list-making and hoping for rain. (See: new plants, the establishment of.)
10) I also watched this BFI panel discussion on the TV adaptation of Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell.
11) Marc Warren (who plays the Gentleman with Thistledown Hair) reports that he did a spell in order to get the part. Bless 'im.
12) In other British television news, Rebecca Front is going to guest-star on Doctor Who this season. She is fabulous, and I am super-excited to see her reunited with Capaldi, with whom she worked on The Thick of It.
13) One hopes his character will be nicer to hers than in TTOI, however.
14) Let's see, can I actually make 17 points?
15) If I cheat, I can.
16) So that was cheating.
17) Happy Friday, with good times ahead for all.
I'm so in favor of cheating to stretch the numbers!
Hmmm. acupuncture and Master Danger. A vision to contemplate, to be sure.
Just back from a walk on the beach below the romantic lighthouse keeper's B&B. The fog and tide are rolling in together and after the 8 course breakfast* I may need a nap...
*amazingly, no cheating required to reach the complete course list. Am boggled.
Cheers and hugs for the upcoming weekend with good wishes for so e rain to settle the new plantings!
Oh, your walk sounds so WONDERFUL. And holy wow, an 8 course breakfast!
Poor Master Danger! Keeping you in line is apparently quite the weight on his brave little shoulders.
His life is so very hard. (HA HA HA.)
Happy weekend to you!
We did! Am now hoping for another round this afternoon. :)
Happy Saturday, T!
Master Danger's composure in regards to acupuncture is fairly impressive!
I should rather say it's unbelievable, but the vet seems like an honest person. I will choose to believe. :)
Cheers and hugs today!
Mimosa and redbud! Sounds lovely!
As does an acupunctured dog. Hope the mellow lasts and last.
The powderpuff mimosa has already got a few pink globes peeking out of the green, which is v.v. pleasing. :)
Cheers for your day!
Poor puppy- is the stress related to the back pain? Is this something you can tell with a dog? I hope he stays chill during future procedures.
Grow little tree!!
I actually think that the back pain might be more of an issue for him than I'd previously imagined. But the stress was because there are Other Dogs and People Who Invade His Space in the world. ;)
Hugs hugs, and a green cool Saturday to you, S!
I don't think I'd want to stick needles into Danger.
But I hope it helps.
I was skeptical when the veterinarian suggested it, but apparently she has Great Powers!
Wow, I didn't know dogs could get acupuncture. That's an expensive treatment for humans. Is back pain a thing with corgis? Anyway, I hope he feels better. If he needs more acupuncture you should find a place that will do both of you. :) Acupuncture is good for a lot of things, apparently. I'm going to try it the next time I'm not having a medical crisis and have time to explore new treatment options. In other words, possibly never. :-/
Enjoy your landscaping! ((Hugs))
My veterinarians mix Western and Eastern medical practice (so the vet said to me last week, "Well, let's try the acupuncture, and if it doesn't work, we'll do an x-ray." The acupuncture for a one-time treatment isn't too expensive. I'll try that with him next month.
We have several local acupuncturists for people in my small town, and I've considered it!
Hugs hugs and a good day, my friend.
