This was great news, actually. I was afraid her heart had already begun to fail because she had been coughing and had an episode of rapid breathing...but the cardiologist says that wasn't because of her heart after all. Surprising, but a relief. The dog is still quite elderly and you never know what health issues will crop up next with an elderly animal, but for today we can relax. I appreciate those who were concerned on my behalf even though it is "just a dog".
So...now what do I talk about?
Um. This pumpkin-raisin muffin I am eating right now is quite tasty. Better than I expected actually. So, yeah, lots of good news. I guess I'm really on a roll again!
