I'm not going to lie - our Black Dog has had a rough week. We had to take him off his NSAID that helps with his joint pain in order to test whether it was causing his low red blood cell count. He has been uncomfortable ever since. Hopefully, after another round of blood tests, he'll be able to return to his NSAIDs.
And, he will LOVE having the blood tests because he gets to flirt with everyone at the vet's office. And they flirt right back!
He hasn't wanted to do much walking or running since the NSAIDs were halted but we stole a brief time in the meadow. I love these simple little moments.
No matter what, this dog makes me grin when I have a few minutes alone with him. His happiness and hopefulness are contagious. He smiles endlessly.
We should all have a dog like R in our lives.
Happy Black Dog Sunday.
