  1. It must be slow today! Spencer had the lab test for the bloody sore on his rectum. It came back No cancer. Yea. It’s a super bad infection. Something I don’t really understand but involves infected white cells.

    The regular antibiotics didn’t work so the vet was looking for something else that isn’t sold here so she is having something compounded. There is only one place here that compounds medicine and I guess the humans have priority. It sounds expensive. In the meantime last night I started putting anti inflammatory suppositories in his you know what. What a good little boy. He did not like it but he stood still and let me do it

    We are very relieved here. And will be very happy when the infection is cleared up. We are also very happy we tried all the non intrusive actions first and didnt rush into a lot of unnecessary testing.

    Will let you know how the medicine works.

    That is great news! Poor little Buddy.

    I have a question, is anyone else’s beagles CRAZY for cicadas? Mine are so obsessed, they are begging for morning and evening walks in this endless Kansas summer of 100 degree weather. Gunner and Bailey are probably getting a good 4-6 of them a day!

      When we had Cicadas last year in Tennessee my beagles thought they were in heaven. They would take the wings off first so that they could not fly away and then the legs. They must be delicious to a beagle.

      My Shelby2 gobbled them up as fast as she could find them. About 3 years ago, I noticed her taking more than usual interest in the ground. Then I noticed her eating something. Come to find out, these 7-year cicadas were coming out a year or two early, so she was reaping the benefits—GROSS!!!
      Nobody else bothered them or even noticed them. Thank goodness that’s over with.

      We don’t get anything exotic like cicadas in England but ours chase spiders around the house and eat them if they catch them! They also try to catch flies but aren’t so successful with things that can fly away from them!

      Oh yes, Onyx loves Cicadas. Cobalt doesn’t think much of them.

    • A little late, but down here in Texas, Lily hates cicada’s! She is deathly afraid of them to the point where she becomes paralyzed with fear if they are in her line of sight. It’s pretty sad when I have to get out of bed to “rescue” her from the back yard! Now a June bug, she will catch those and torture them until Jake comes by and eats them on her. Jake either doesn’t hear or doesn’t care anything about the cicadas. He’s more into quickly getting his business done so he can get back into the cool air conditioned house.
