Our dog U has been a convalescent this week. He had cryptorchidism so he had to be castrated. I was prepared for a sad and tired puppy for several days. But the hardest part in his recovery has been keeping him calm enough, so his stitches won’t rip.
The second hardest thing is preventing him from licking the wound. We got a plastic collar from the vet, but this mister wasn’t pleased with it. The first thing he did after waking up from anesthesia was to paw at the collar and try to make it disappear. Thankfully they make these “wound overalls” nowadays that dogs can wear that cover the wounds. Of course I wanted one.
U has to wear it at least 10 days, so of course I needed an extra piece so I could wash the original once in a while (this dog tends to get everything messy…). So I found a baby’s body from the flea market, just his size. 😀
Now we just have to make sure we won’t barge into the chihuahua-girl next door in 10 days with this outfit. It would totally wreck U’s cool image and bad boy charm. 😉
It’s done. Ready. Finished! My THESIS. The reason I haven’t got Budapest-pictures edited yet, is that I’ve been sitting by the computer, making the last corrections, changes and modifications to my thesis. It took longer than I expected. I kept founding new mistakes all the time. The most annoying ones took hours to clear up, because I had forgot some small info from few references and of course the library is closed for the Easter… But thanks to the amazing world of internet, everything should be in place. I’m sure there are still mistakes hidden all over the text, but after reading the same pages for days I just couldn’t read it all over again.
My shoulders are stuck, I have tic in my both eyes for staring at the computer screen and I have a tendency for migraine when a reason to stress disappears. But otherwise, mentally, I feel great! Assuming my thesis is approved, I have only maturity test in front of me, and then my academic career is all done. At least for now. Awesomeness.
Happy Easter everyone!
I’m enjoying my first day of paid winter vacation ever! It’s only three days in total, but that’s better than nothing. The days off combined to being surrounded by such beautiful things and great people, life couldn’t be more perfect just now. The reason to this momentary euphoria might also be because of the fact, that this week I’ve only waited for feedback about my thesis sketch from my teacher, so I’ve actually had a good reason not to do it at all! I can’t even start to describe how relaxing it has been. Can’t wait for this thesis and studying thing to be finally over sometime in the near or far future, depending on that feedback. 😀
Flowers and more flowers! Just can’t get enough of flowers so I’m trying to fill the house with them.
Eating caramel cheesecake as breakfast because it’s vacation and because I can.
Got my first dance hula hoop yesterday! It’s so beautiful! I started on a beginners hoop dance class in February and the only bad thing about it is, that I didn’t know about this sport already 10 years ago…
Birthday surprise from the worlds best mom and dad. Found my favorite chocolate inside. 🙂
And tomorrow off to Budapest! ❤
