#90 - Curlicues
We've been having a lovely week thus far, thanks to all of you! We are overwhelmed by the amount of love and support that we've received from our friends around the world who heard about JD's dental issues. His procedure is currently scheduled for a week from Friday. We are a little nervous, but I know that he will get the best care. The reason that the bill is so expensive is because this vet has the best reputation around. It doesn't help that I live in New England, where medical bills in general seem to be more expensive, but JD's vet is the best is the area. There are other vets that charge a bit less and I could save $200-$300 going to some of the other animal doctors, but their reputations aren't as wonderful as JD's vet. I trust them, and that is certainly #1 when you are trusting someone with the love of your life. I know that he is well worth the extra money to make sure that he is as comfortable and safe as possible!
A few people have asked about sending "get wells" to JD. If you'd like to send wishes along, you are more than welcome to e-mail us. If you prefer snail-mail to send your wishes, please e-mail us and we will be glad to send you the address where you can ship cards or whatever you'd like to send to cheer JD up. Our e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you all again for your support!
You are probably wondering what's up with the photo at the beginning of this post. I wanted to recommend this book to all of our pug and pet loving friends. "Curlicues" is a children's book from the 80's by Valerie Worth and Natalie Babbitt. It is an adorable story about two pug dogs wind up on an adventure to find their forever homes and change the lives of the people who they meet. It is a very sweet story to share with kids or to read when you need something to brighten your day. many public libraries have copies and you can also find it on Amazon.
If you do read it or have already read it, let us know what you think of these two pugs and their story :]
