Saturday morning saw me taking Charlie for his yearly check at the Vet.
It's funny how I book him in for his checkup but I don't do the same yearly task for myself.
Anyway, the vet said Charlie was in good health and even had a low rest in heart rate which meant he is a healthy dog who is very active. Really, I didn't realise he was active!
The only thing is that he has a wheat infection in both ears. Particularly the right one. That means for the next 2 weeks I have to put drops in his ears, morning and night. I better make sure I'm stocked up on his favourite treats.
Sunday morning while I was having breakfast on the verandah I was having a look around on pinterest and a particular photo caught my eye about emergency packs for your pet.
In light of the fires we've had recently in Australia and it was almost 2 years ago that Brisbane went under in the floods, I thought it might be a good idea.
The pin took me to a blog called A Bowl Full of Lemons and this post on Emergency Preparedness. The plan is to put together a kit for myself and for Charlie. Hopefully we never have to use them but I would rather know that are sitting there.... just in case.
Have you got an emergency kit in your home?
