We were all huddling around looking at the bug when the earthquake happened. It was pretty surreal. There were quite a few people in the office still and we were making jokes. Nothing fell down, and building shook a little. I didn’t think it was that serious.

As I was driving home, I heard on the radio that it was 5.6 earthquake and the epicenter was close to a mall. According to one of the callers, there were panics at the mall. I think the last place I want to be at the Mall with a whole bunch of people screaming and running for their lives.

On the home front, Chester went in for his annual teeth cleaning and a blood test. He’s been having some problems with his hind legs and when the Mister took him in yesterday for this, the vet thought he might have arthritis. But now, she found that his spine is fusing together. Though it’s not cure-able it’s manageable with meds.

That bit of news is expected because we knew he was having back problem. But here’s the other shocking news. He is in the early stage of kidney failure. I guess it’s been going on for a while now. But the vet said with diet and meds, he’s going to have a long long life. Oh and he lost another tooth and had a huge chunk of ear wax taken out of his ear.

Poor dog, he’s on so many meds. First are meds for his dry eye and conic ear infections. Now he has meds for his back and for his kidney. But he is a spry and scrappy little dog.

Just check him out!
