Stinky at the Vet

Yesterday I took Stinky to the vet. He had a big, nasty sore on his hind paw and on his tail that I just noticed a couple of days ago and he needed to get checked out. Stinky never likes riding in the car, but he was a very good lil trooper -- and we were lucky that the vet is only a mile away. In any event, once we got to the vet, he was very well behaved and the staff there loved him.

The diagnosis? Stinky had gotten abcesses on his hind foot and paw. EWW. No fun. What was also not fun: the $400 it set me back to get him all fixed up. That doesn't include the prospect of keeping him indoors for a week... Still, that's the sort of thing you do when you have kids...
