I've been absent because...
Maggie's ass exploded, and I fell off a ladder and smashed my head on the coffee table. No shit, people.

Last week, my poor little Magadog was sliding her butt on the floor, so I knew it was time to express the anal glands. (ewwww.) So, I picked her up and went to do just that. What I didn't know was that she had an infection and when I went to squeeze her ass, it burst. In the wrong spot. I was totally freaked and started yelling and crying - and Jim started yelling "What did you do to the DOG?" There was blood and panicking by the humans and an actual look of relief on Maggie's face. After a nice trip to the vet with penicillan shots, antibiotics and a trendy little cone for Maggie's head, I finally relaxed. I felt really guilty, though, even after the vet assured me that I was just trying to help her. I have convinced myself that I am the worst dogmama EVER. My name is now badawfulevildogmama. I did receive my punishment, however.

After much warning from my husband to stay off of the ladder due to my extreme clumsiness and lack of balance - I did it anyway. and fell backward and smacked my head on the coffee table. Ow. It hurt like a motherfucker, I'm going to live, and that is all I have to say about that. I do have some cute pictures of Maggie in her cone (I call her funnel-face.) - I will post those soon.

There you are, and with a new look too! I had stopped checking in when it looked like you took the summer off!

Glad to hear you didn't brain damage yourself.

And oh. my. god. with the dog and her ass. I would have flipped out.
