I think it was Rich - or possibly Ryan - who first started calling Aggie indestructible. So, a hefty bill (ouch) later, we find out the dog has an UTI. A little medicine and she'll be fine.

At 13, anytime something seems a little off with her, I think, ok, this is the beginning of the end. So tonight I asked Rich what else the vet said, and he said, do you really want to know? Of course! Well, her bloodwork was perfect and the vet said she's in excellent shape.

This dog is going to live forever. Or maybe it will just feel like forever.

(I kid, I kid. But you try sleeping while she's yipping her fool head off for 40 minutes every night. She's still in lockdown for a few days - we hate to do it, as she is generally great at sleeping in E's room or ours, but you try stepping in a cold puddle of pee after you're awakened at 3 am by a crying child and see how you like it - seriously there's only so much we can handle, and we are maxed out right now.)

If the dogs have an accident in the house while David is gone and it's been a rough day - it is seriously enough to put me over.the.edge. seriously. I hear you and agree that Aggie needs to be crated until her UTI clears up. (and sometimes I think it feels like forever, too. Like when I spend 20 minutes vacuuming dog hair off the couch that they are NOT supposed to be on.)

I am so glad she only needs medicine!

I can totally feel your pain. Chloe is 16 now and when she has an old lady need, it's often what tips the sanity scales in our house. We just got her Cushing's Disease check up today. It's like having 3 kids already!
