What Playing Sounds Like When Your Kids Pay Attention to Everything

Ramona had two friends over yesterday, and they played Vet.

"I can see your dog now," I overheard Ramona say.

She disappeared into the exam room with a stuffed animal and all was quiet for a moment. Then she emerged and I heard:

"I'm sorry -- your dog has crystals and bacteria in her urine and she'll need to take these two medicines."

Art imitating life. Get well soon, Sydney!

Awww! Poor Sydney! Hope she feels better soon! Crouton had to spend the night in the doggie hospital a couple of weeks ago because of a serious bacterial infection she picked up at the kennel. It's not fun when these sweet friends get sick and can't tell you what hurts.

Thanks, Charlotte! Poor Crouton, too! Yeah, I hate it when they're sick. It's almost as bad as having a sick child.
