Miles' Second Owie

The other weekend I took Miles to the dog park, and after a couple minutes I noticed he was being very submissive and defensive around this one very playful dog, which is a bit out of character. A little later, after we ran down the beach, I saw he had a rip in his side, and so he must have been bit. His skin tears so easily, and it was a thumb sized hole and a flap of skin, so off to the vet for some more staples!

Miles Wound #2

Luckily he heals quickly, too, so we just got the staples out after a week and a half. For a little while everyone was getting pills in the morning: Miles on antibiotics for his cut, Tobi on antibiotics for her cold, and Nina for being Nina.

Tobi has a Cold

Tobi and Miles both got a cold recently, it was a bit sad and a bit funny. Miles was generally confused and frustrated, which is how he usually reacts to any kind of change. He would randomly go into these wheezing fits and stare at you like "How do I stop this?"
Tobi was just a wet mess, constantly sneezing and blowing gobs of snot everywhere. At this point in her life, though, she takes any kind of medical problem in stride.

Meet Hoa

We got another duck, a companion for Ferdinand. His name is Hoa, which means friend in Maori. They're like two peas in a pod.
