Not Talkin'

Here's a fountain...

Here's a wet dog....
You figure it out.

Those who know aren't talkin.
Those who are talkin' don't know.

The joke appears to be on Abbey - while at breakfast after her "misadventure" I noticed that her left ear flap felt like a water balloon - squishy. I called the vet - who said it sounded like a hematoma - caused by violently shaking ones head - and bursting blood vessels in the ear. Yep - now we have an appointment for Monday - where Abbs will probably need to have her ear surgically drained...ALL BECAUSE SHE JUMPED INTO "SOMETHING" "SOMEWHERE" and got soaked...then shook her head so hard in an effort to dry off - that she hurt herself!

Wait a minute - since Abbs doesn't have a checking account and no funds of her own to pay for above mentioned vet visit - I guess the joke's on me. Good thing she's so cute!

Her hi jinx were videotaped by a tourist in the park this morning. We're keeping out fingers crossed that she does not show up on You Tube.

I would have loved to seen her in the fountain. There's something special about dogs who like water :)

Poor Abbey, that doesn't sound like a fun trip to the vet at all. We hope it goes smoothly for your girl.

Sounds like she had a wonderful time! Pure reckless abandon. So sorry to hear about her ear.

Poor Abbey... Girl, that's why I don't swim! I just chase my mom and bark at her when she does. I should add, she doesn't swim in fountains as far as I know!
