Everybody Loves Boyd

Boyd.  Our Big Baby Boyd.   

Our Big Baby Boyd with an ear infection.  Our Big Baby Boyd with the longest lasting ear infection… ever.

Seriously, he’s had this thing for at least 4 months.  At least.

I feel bad for him, because he’s miserable half the time, but I’m frustrated too because no one can seem to figure out what’s going on!

So far we’ve tried 5 different medicines and a prescription hypo-allergenic dog food that costs $80 for a 35 pound bag.  Crap.  Not to mention the office visit fees for the numerous vet appointments we’ve had.  And since he likes to put on such a production, it requires both JD and I be available to take him to his appointments. 

The good news is he just L-O-V-E-S the vet.  Why?  All the attention.  Even if that attention comes in the form of a thermometer up his butt.

Yep, that’s our boy.

Luckily, despite his over-excited wailing and scratching at the floor, they just L-O-V-E him too.  And since they can all hear him coming, we’ve barely reached the check-in desk before they get all gushy.  He gladly eats up the affection.

One vet tech even makes a special stop in our room, even if we’re not on his appointment schedule, JUST because he loves Boyd so much.

I think the ear infections are a ploy.  He’s probably figured out that the sicker he is, the more we take him to the place where everybody loves on him.

Boyd.  Geesh.
