The day started off normal enough until Scarlet was the only one allowed to go in the car and Zoe stayed at home alone.
ZOE: Hey, Scarlet just left with dad, how come I have been left behind! I never get left behind!
ZOE: Yay - dad came back - but where is Scarlet?? Is she hiding between these chairs????
Zoe tells me that she had quite a few hours of "quality time" just with her dad, and they got to chill and play games together. Zoe was a little concerned over where Scarlet was. Then her dad left and came back with Scarlet.
SCARLET: Hey - I was very excited to be at the vets! I like it there because that's where I did puppy school and whenever we go there - all the nurses and doctors GUSH over me!
ZOE: They GUSH over ME too!!
SCARLET: Anywho, today they did this thing called "cyst removal" - all for my own good - oh and my nails appear to be clipped too! Not to mention that my perfectly groomed coat is now ruined with this shaved patch! It was all a bit traumatic - but probably more so for dad! As soon as I got home I rubbed my back on the furniture and things started bleedn' again, dad was not amused!
SCARLET: So he had to knock up a dress for me to wear quickly - to "protect" my wound!
ZOE: Awww, it's not so bad Scarlie, it's actually kinda cute. It's an old pillacase that he had to re-fashion slightly - you were too small for his T-shirt! Lemon is not bad on ya either!
SCARLET: Yea, but he could'a done a bit nicer job with the cutting, looks kinda rough around the edges don't ya think?
ZOE: All part of todays fashions dudette! You look wicked!
SCARLET: That means good, no?
ZOE: Affirmative Scarlie, look at the bright side - you are gonna be spoiled rotten for a couple of days coz dad's probably gonna worry till you are ALL better. That means TREATS! And that means we BOTH will get em'!!
SCARLET: You got it all worked out little sis, yea we will milk this situation. I wanna just nap first. Then we can start the TREAT campaign! There's just one more thing sis.....
ZOE: Yea what???
SCARLET: YOU'RE haven' the next surgery OK??!!??
Horrible day don't you think? At least the little cyst problem has now been "nipped in the bud".
Let's wish Scarlet a speedy recovery and I will see her and Zoe in person again on Monday.
