Thomas and the Vet

I arrived in record time once I left the farm, I thinking I had the number to let the new vet know I was on my way, again, my rock, my friend, my sister saved my sorry hinny, called the clinic and let them know I was on the way. I arrived found huge dog in car next to mine and Thomas and I got in the door. I filled out the form and sat....Thomas poking his head out of the cardboard carrier every now and again. I had the last time been in a vet office to pick up Bulugas ashes and then on the day she died to deliver her in the kind hands of the Pilchuck Vet Clinic and Hospital...Anyway was sitting there hoping to get in and out. A couple brings in a white Shepard and I break into my silent OMG and resisted the urge to say good bye and prayed...And ask God to wish them enough...Nomas understands this...My heart ached I did not know for sure I just KNEW...And there I Prayed....Then another couple comes in and I see the rage and anger of the woman....She belittles and carries on insulting hateful words...How she had to wait for her dog, mean words...And all I could do is feel sorry for her that she did not SEE the hurt someone ELSE was having how another family was about to loss there beloved dog while she stood there hands on hips, high and mighty demanding that anyone with a brain would leave and not see this vet....I wished her enough... I wanted to ring her neck, I wanted to scream at her that her dog would live at this moment while 5 feet away a family had to see their dog go....I wished them all enough. I asked God to take away such anger, I wanted her to regret such a poor human behavior while I watched all the animals live with enough.....

There is never enough....I wish I had one more minute with Buluga, I wish for one more snuggle from Uzi and I wish for enough understanding....Which I never seem to have enough. Tears are pouring down my face...Thomas has enough antibiotics and will be fine ... I have courage and faith more than enough...Love you all, wish you all a good day.....And just an extra enoughs because you all hold a special place in my heart....Please say a little prayer for the family who put their dog down today as you all know what we do for others outlives what we do for ourselves....incliding al the Prayers.....love you all

Breathe Sis. Deep Breath. Thomas is home in the garden shed with you under quarrantine. He may not like you for the moment but when he can see the "enough" he'll come up and scream that the catfood bowl is not full enough.

It's amazing how involved in ourselves we can be...how we can miss the pain and misery around us...how we cannot see past the ends of our noses. I'm glad you saw the family's pain and could pass it on for our prayers.

And glad Thomas is going to get better soon.

So glad Thomas has some medicine. And though this may not make sense, I am glad someone was there to empathize with that poor family.

I am praying for you as you deal with everything!!!!

I hope that nasty person in the vet's office gets cat urine in their car and that the people who had to put down their dog find another one just as great.

Oh those poor folks. We all know that horrible pain of losing a beloved fur baby. You were feeling kindly toward that mean witch - I think someone should have told her: "Enough out of you, already!"

I really want to choke her...then slap her with just a little compassion and a large dose of wisdom...
