Funny Frankie

This morning I went to get something in my Mom and Dads bathroom. Our big washing machine is connected to the shower, where all the water from the washing machine is let out into the shower, anyway, Frankie and George followed me in (they follow me everywhere). The water from the machine was being emptied into the shower. It was swirling and swirling around. I called Frankie to have a look at it. He came over and just jumped right in. He ran around and around, sloshing in the water. It really was sooo funny! He jumped back out and ran off down the passage with me chasing after him with a towel. hehe a good laugh! :)

A Sting and a Fluffy Paw

Yesterday I had to take Georgie to the vet because he had something stuck in his paw. I was just making his food and as I took the bowls through, with him following behind, I saw him suddenly start jumping around like a monkey and licking his paw. I tried to get him to calm down so I could see what it was. I called someone to help me hold him down to have a look. I could see something small, but didn't know what it was. Looked like a sting. So, rather to be safe, I rushed him off to the vet. He cried the whole way :(. The vet couldn't see properly either and said he would sedate him and then look. I had to leave my little boy there, not knowing what was wrong! I was so anxious the whole day! Later in the afternoon, the vet phoned and I was told I could fetch him. Whatever was in his paw had fallen out aparently.

I got him home and noticed his left front paw had been shaved, not the right one which had the sting in it. I turned him over,(he was still very drowsy) and had a look. There was the sting!!!! I got my sister to help me and we got it out. His first bee sting! Turns out the new vet working there had done the wrong paw. He phoned and apologised and we didn't have to pay the bill at all.
I'm just glad Georgie is fine. He is bright eyed and bushy tailed this morning!
