Stressed Up


So happy – and calm – together

Today was the local six-week eye pressure exam.  The Tonopen readings ranged from 12-21, which is a little concerning, as we’re to stay under 15.  However, I don’t expect Eye Care for Animals to want us to come visit; we’d been warned the Tonopen reads 2-3 parts per whatever higher than the preferred Tonovet.  Additionally, Sis was STRESSED.  I think Gretchen is the key to a calm Sis.  They really don’t like to be separated.

We do love our new vet.  Dr. D. has an interest in eyes, but she never fails to plop down in the floor and put her hands all over Sis too.  Sis’s weight is fluctuating a lot, but Dr. D. says she considers Sis an athlete, based on our weekly walking mileage, so… it’s all good, but Sis is about at her top end of optimal right now, so if the heat holds us back on walks, she’ll have to cut back a bit too.

Now, to squeeze in a walk before it’s too hot and humid.  It’s already 17 degrees warmer than it was at dawn, and we have roughly another 15 to go.
