Hot Stuff

So, my dog is mad at me. We had her spayed this week and she's been pouting under my bed since I brought her home two days ago. I can't say that I blame her.

So anyway, I had her in my lap and was gazing into her precious face trying to apologize for having her cut open when I noticed that her face is not symmetrical.

Her whiskers on the right side of her face are shorter than the ones on the left side. Hmmm...this is odd.

Then I notice that the ends of her shorter whiskers are slightly curled and feel a little, well, crunchy. Why, I said out loud, her whiskers look singed!!! What did they do to you at the vet?!

Then my 8-year-old says, "Um, yeah, about that...I meant to tell you."


She continues, "Yeah, the other day when Emma was here, Tess fell in the fire."

OK. Deep breath. Count to 10.

Using my concerned, but reasonable voice:

A) Why are you and Emma playing with fire?

B) How does a dog just FALL into a fire?

C) You didn't think this was something relevant that I needed to know?!

We still haven't figured out the answers to A and B but I'm pretty sure we have come to an understanding for future reference on C.

Oh Lisa...that is kinda funny and kinda scary.

Well I wonder if which situation she is mad at...

Poor Tess!

Just a quick note to say hi. I saw your link on Amber's site.

Sorry about your dog. Maybe she is hiding for other reasons?

Oh aren't good combinations apparently. At least the whole side of her body isn't singed....;-)
