This Fergus Friday update is much the same as previous ones. Fergus continues to torment Emily at every opportunity.
He continues to be a busybody. In addition to watching what is going on in the neighbourhood, he also feels a need to be a part of every activity inside our house. There was no way he was going to be left out of the Crokinole game!
Fergus's love affair with Anita continues unabated. While Anita was making my birthday dinner this week Fergus sat at her feet watching her every move.
Fergus and Jenny are still best friends. Here they are, on one of the rare sunny days we have had this winter, taking advantage of every square inch of sunlit carpet.
I'm sorry to report that Fergus's drug problem has surfaced once again. This past Sunday Jay and I took a day trip to go look at a potential place we might want to move to. Kellen was going to be doing some painting in our house while we were away and very kindly agreed to dog sit. David was going to be home for most of the day as well, so between the two of them we figured we had the dog care thing covered.
Well. As I was slowing down to turn into the area we were looking at, my cell phone rang. It was Kellen, and he was in a panic. I could hear the dogs barking and David yelling in the background. Somehow - I'm still not exactly clear on the details - Fergus got a hold of Emily's bottle of thyroid medicine. When David came upstairs he discovered Fergus in his crate, surrounded by bits of plastic bottle and little white pills.
As I pulled in behind the realtor I was still on the phone trying to sort things out. Luckily Jay knew how many pills Emily had left, and once David and Kellen gathered up all the pills Fergus had licked and scattered on the floor only one pill was unaccounted for. This was fortuitous, since I have had to phone the vet once before when Fergus had snacked on one of Emily's pills. I knew he was in no danger from having a single pill. As if house hunting wasn't stressful enough!
Fergus still doesn't understand what all the fuss was about...
