Hi friends! I completed January in the Snowflower Diaries SAL.
I have begun stitching the March pattern by Maja/Snowflower Diaries. It is another sweet one.
Wednesday I gave Murphy a bath. He is good for that. Then an hour after his bath, I gave him 1.5 tablets of his sedative(the maximum dose), so I could groom him. I waited one hour for the drug to take effect. NOPE! He may be 12 1/2 years old, but he does NOT like grooming at all, and it takes a lot to knock him out! So I called the veterinarian. He said we could give him valium the next day instead.So Brian picked up the valium. Thursday morning when Murphy finally woke up (he is not an early riser ;) I gave him 1/2 a tablet as instructed by the vet. I waited 45 minutes and gave him the other half because he was wobbly, but still walking around. WELL I will say this again it takes a lot to knock him out!!! Thank God Brian came and helped me. I just do not even know how I groomed him last time, unsedated and by myself. His clip is not perfect, and as hard as it is for me to accept, it is never going to be. This guy is one heck of a fighter!!! Wow.
Brian told me he will be there to help me in a few months when it is time to do Murphy again. And we are giving him the whole tablet from the start. I am sure I will still have to muzzle him and have him wear a cone/ E collar. Yikes!
Thank you all for your kind words on Madeleine's art. I passed along all your encouraging words to her. Boy, did you guys ever make her smile! :)
Stitching and praying,
