We got five inches of fluffy white snow today, which makes it very noticeable how not white the white dog is, and how tiny the tiny dog is.

My neighbors have a new baby, five weeks old and eee! even tinier than the tiny dog! But that doesn't last. I'm trying to remember how old his big sister is, and wishing LJ had a useful search function.

I took Aiko to the vet for a blood draw to make sure he can still take his arthritis drug. There were puppies in the waiting room, nine weeks old, with soft puppy fur; at 16 pounds and 13 pounds, already bigger than the tiny dog, and destined to get bigger than Aiko. The vet wanted a urine specimen too, which Aiko did not provide, so they sent me home with a specimen collection kit: one small styrofoam bowl, to hold in the way of the stream; one specimen cup; one plastic pipette, to transfer the specimen from bowl to cup. 'Specimen' is one of those words I always misspell. Every time I typed it in this post it came out 'specimin'.

That takes a... well, unusual kind and sense of dexterity, doesn't it, to capture a pee sample?

Man. I'm not sure how I'd do that if it were Lily. She simply won't go unless she's on grass or something, and even then, it's like squat-squirt-done. Maybe feed Aiko a half gallon of warm turkey stock?

This whole post, with pictures and the feel of soft puppies and discussion of urine capture has made me smile and giggle. Thank you.
