Blogspot Confessional

Alright, I admit it. The Pennsylvania trip was not as bad as I made it out to be. It was actually a pretty great time.

**Random Interuption** Right now my father is watching TV. He is switching between a History Channel show about dragons and South Park. That's beautiful. Good work, Dad! Oh, and Mom is frowning at South Park. And now, back to the show.

As I was saying...Pennsylvania...really fun. Except for that amusement park we went to. Not so amusing. And Pottsville...damn you and your confusing system of roads and allies! But we got to see some relatives that we don't see nearly enough. Good times.

And then there's Harry. Ah, my poor pup...he's got an infection, as Sarah outlined in the previous post. I think I'm turning into one of those crazy dog people. He's like our furry, four-legged child. In my defense, the huge lump hanging from his neck really freaked my out. So, he's on meds and should be getting better by the day.

I know I had a greater point to make, but my A.D.D. has kicked in and I can't remember what I wanted to...HEY! Let's go ride bikes!

Harry's Summer Vacation

Harry stayed with my parents while we were on vacation in Pennsylvania. Our trip really was fun, despite Matt's most recent post. Just don't ask about Pottsville. :) Anyway, Harry got to spend almost two weeks with my parents' golden retriever, Chloe. I've never seen two dogs behave more like siblings than Harry and Chloe. They play hard ALL DAY. They'll compete with each other for everything! Even a dead weed in the yard! They also like to get dirty...well, more like FILTHY! Harry's never been dirtier than he was while he was on vacation. Take a look for yourself.

Though he had a great time, there turned out to be some consequences to the way that he and Chloe play. Harry has since come down with an infection. It turns out that while they were playing, Chloe got a tooth into Harry and his little puncture wound got infected. He's not really sick, but he does have a large lump above his right shoulder. We took him to the vet last night and had him checked out. Big thanks to Dr. Steffen and TeNisha at the Animal Emergency Clinic in Bloomington, they were great! Harry's on some antibiotics now and due to see our regular vet tomorrow afternoon for another check. Hopefully, everything will be back to normal in a few days!
