This weekend was interesting, both good and bad. Friday after work we pet sitted at 4 different places. We stopped at Checker's after that and I finally got my fried chicken sandwich with cheese and fries. I had been craving it for months.

Saturday we went over to one of the pet sitting places and found one of the dogs in very bad shape. Sapp is a Golden (5 years old) who has lymphoma that is managed with medications. Well, when we got there he was unable to get up and he had defecated all over himself. He had labored breathing, edema and barely a blood pressure. After talking to their owners, we rushed him to my clinic and unfortunately had to have him euthanized. It was so sad. We were both shaken up and ended up taking it out on each other. We took a long walk and talked it out and enjoyed the fall colors and weather. After volunteering at the Humane Society we did more pet sitting and them home to eat and sleep again.

Yesterday was the last of our pet sitting, church, football and a lot of relaxing. We laid around all day. It was very nice and something we don't do very often. We also watched House of 1000 Corpses, which I do not recommend.

Prayers for Sapp and his family. :O(
