I was going to attend a conference today. Actually, I was going to meet a friend first, attend the conference and meet up with a colleague afterwards. That was the plan.
What happened is a certain four-footed one got sick this morning. On my outfit. Which meant having to change and tend to the four-footed one. So I had to let my friend know I wouldn’t be able to meet with her. The conference though, was surely still a go. Until that same certain four-footed one was sick again.
A call to the vet and the advisement to bring the four-footed one in meant no conference or meeting anyone after. It turns out the four-footed one is very cuddly when she’s been sick. It also turns out that she had something akin to food poisoning. So medication has been prescribed, the garden has been scoured to make sure nothing not dog friendly was present.
Somehow this day still turned out okay. The dog is going to be okay. We got lots of cuddle time and the garden go a good going over. Which was important because we found moldy peanuts and candies in an area that the four-footed one would love to check out. (That’s probably why she got sick in the first place.)
Sure my plans changed. Sure I missed time with friends and a conference. But all in all, knowing the dog is okay and making other plans to meet up with my friend and colleague for another day, has made it all still a decent day.
