I had to go to the vets on Saturday. I know most dogs don't like going, but I usually love it! It's so exciting with so many people and animals.
But Saturday...grr... I have an ear infection so what did that mean? A whole lotta pokin' around at my ear.
See my ear? See how it's unhappy?
*A note from Mom: Hamish was a bit of a drama queen at the vets. The vet wanted to swab his ear and he screamed in agony. Then he'd start grumbling in pleasure. Then back to crying. He kept going back and forth between happy and very upset while she was doing stuff to his ear. I know I shouldn't laugh but it was kinda funny. The vet assured me it wasn't as bad as he was making it out to be.

Don't believe her! Agony!

Oh my dog, was it hot last week or what?? Well except for Friday which was surprisingly chilly. Mom just kept asking me how do we go from 38F/100C to needing a sweater. Dunno! I handled it all very well, but I don't know about the Fluffies...under all that fluff and all..

This is Wil lying under a fan.

Mom offered to give them a lion clip so they'd be cooler, but they politely declined.
I don't know why that photo uploaded sideways...but let's just pretend it didn't goblins maybe...
And yes that was still the Christmas tree behind me. I supervised while Mom took down all the decorations yesterday. LAZY!

We hope your ear feels better soon, Hamish!
Our kitty cousin gets lion cuts all the time and mom says it's fun to pet him because his shaved fur is sooooooooo soft!

Love ya lots

Hi Hamish.

We hope your ear gets better very soon.

Have you got cold ear drops? They tickle!

Yep we had a couple of really hot days last week. It is weird how it just changed so suddenly but we're due for more hot weather in the next few days.....yuck!
Hope your ear infection goes away. My ears often get muck in them. I've got small ear canals...sigh.

Hi Hamish!
I'm sorry you had to go to the vet! They are soo rude there sometimes! Poking around in ears and taking temperatures and things like that! I'm glad you survived! Your poor kitties musta been hot with all that fur! I can send some snow for them to cool off in, I have plenty of it at my house!

Hamish, I pull that same expression when I get sore ears! Just the sight of the ear medicine sends me running - not because I am a wuss, but because I have a very important prior engagement somewhere other than near the ear medicine. You understand.

love Bertie.

PS. I laugh at him - Oliver
