Condiment update

Actually, that probably doesn’t make any sense to most of you. Mr Dog’s true name is a condiment, and the cat is named Sugar. We didn’t realize that what were doing when we picked the names. I guess there is a precedent for this because when middle child was showing goats, her goats were all spices and herbs, the herd name was Spice Hill Goats, so they had names like Nutmeg of Spice Hill.Today, we took Mr Dog to the Vet’s for a recheck, his ear is better but he needs to go back in 5 days. Sugar went for a check up, (if you are squeamish you may want to stop reading here and read this instead. What do I cook all day? ) she has a prolapsed rectum and a hernia. The vet who spayed her was supposed to have fixed the prolapse and she developed the hernia after the spaying. The hernia doesn’t hurt her, and we ...

Picture perfect

I paid $200 mxp including tip to have Mr Dog bathed and clipped at our house! Mr Dog hates water,bathes and being groomed. I have been bathing him lately, it’s easier if I do it, I can take a long time and be very patient with him. However my clipping skills aren’t what they should be, and I don’t want to try to import some high end clippers.Since one picture is worth a thousand words, here is a photo story. Here is the groommobile, you can’t see it in the photo but there is an ac unit on top. Another view of the groom mobile. Mr Dog is inside. See the AC unit?Mr Dog is pleading with us….. Mr Dog leaves in disgust.

Where’s the kitty?

I feel like a character in a children’s book.Whenever I go into the guest room to feed or pet Sugar I have to go through the same routine. Where’s the kitty? Is she on the guest bed? (Normally I am not one of those crazy people who put plastic on the furniture. I decided to be cautious since I had no idea what Sugar would do since she is basically still a feral cat). Is the kitty in her bed? No, maybe the kitty is in the cardboard box? Sometimes the kitty is under the bed, but not this time. This time the kitty is on the bedside lamp table! Sugar is improving, she is tiny for her age. Dr Pablo assures me that she will be all well in about 15 days (two weeks to those of you that are nob, a week in Mexico has 8 days and two weeks has 15 days). She is now meowing when ...

Feels like May

Here it is September and it feels like April or May. In case you are NOB (north of the border) April and May are the hottest and muggiest months. Usually we can count on the rainy season to start in July and by now we should be having a daily deluge in the late afternoon cooling everything down and smelling like fabric softener. I keep saying that Gustav stole our rain, and maybe I am correct.Well, all this heat and humidity has been making me sluggish and maybe a little boring. Even the eleven headless bodies that they found in Chichi Suarez (a suburb of Mérida) couldn’t inspire me to blog. If a name like Chichi Suarez can’t inspire me, what can? When I saw the name on the map, I thought wouldn’t that look cool,then my address could be Theresa in MéridaCalle 3 #1 entre 2y4 Col. Chichi Suarez97000, Mérida, YucatánMéxico Now doesn’t that look exotic? Much better than ...

Sugar is sweet

I called the vet this afternoon for a kitty update. First off, Chuey is a girl so I am thinking on a new name, Dr Pablo suggested Botana, jajajaja, I think not. Mr. Dog is not on board with the whole cat thing, so I think Botana (Snack) doesn’t set the mood I want. I have been asking Husband, what about Chimi? do you like Shadow?, hey, what about Che? For right now,I am thinking Sugar, it’s even almost pronouncable if you speak Spanish, I am assuming it would come out Chugar.Dr Pablo is returning Sugar on Saturday, she is getting better. Apparently, there were a whole passle of parasites that passed out of her and she is mending.I asked Dr Pablo how much I could expect to pay when she came back. I mean we are talking, pick up and delivery by the vet, antibiotics and anti-parasitics, and 3 nights at the clinic, I wanted to know if I ...
