A dog and dental

It was a quiet week in some ways, I tried to catch up on paperwork and laundry but of course there is always a bit of drama.  One day I was coming back from the dentist on the subway and for some reason got off a stop later than I usually do.  It must have been meant to be, because I saw a dog alone crossing Pape, a very busy street.  I followed it and it sure looked like a lost dog, just kept on the move and I tried to catch up with him.  A run around the block and finally I got the dog to stop, poor thing was covered in ice and snow.  Here I was, crouched on the Danforth, trying to hold on to a dog who had no collar and not sure what I was going to do.  Thankfully a nice man stopped to see what was happening and I explained.  He held the dog and I ran off to the dollar store and got a collar and leash and meanwhile Steve drove up to meet me.  

What a good dog!  As soon as we got the collar on he seemed much calmer and happily hopped in the car.  We went to the THS and sadly no microchip so I left my dog with them.  I posted immediately on line and later that night I got a message that somebody saw the post and went to collect their dog! Apparently it was in the backyard and a Rogers guy left the gate open.  I'm so glad I was in the right place at the right time!
OK, back to our normal scheduling program, cats!  Last week I noticed that Lily didn't seem to be eating that well, and at one point she went to eat, cried out and ran away.  I sighed and thought a vet visit was in order.  We took down our new feeding station trap and boom, in she went.  Love that thing!  Poor Lily had to have the rest of her rotten teeth removed but she is recovering well.
