When Grass Seeds Attack

July 16, 2021 On Wednesday, Nox was shaking her head a bit and scratching at her ear. By Thursday, she was shaking her head and scratching at her ear almost constantly. When she wasn’t shaking her head or scratching at her ear, she was walking with her head at a funny angle. Bruce held Nox […]

Update on Nox’s Foot

July 13, 2021 Bruce took Nox to the vet this afternoon. When the vet was examining the red spot on Nox’s food, the vet was pleased to see that it had deflated. She was even more pleased when a sharp grass seed came out of the red spot. The grass seed was what had caused […]

Hail Storm Pounds RV

June 13, 2021 We had a hailstorm this afternoon. It was loud, almost as if we were in a popcorn pan. Poor little Nox was frightened by all the racket and she wanted a pick up. Bruce held her and she calmed right down. She was no longer frightened as she snuggled into Bruce’s arms. […]
