Happy Birthday and update on a broken bone


Montague Myles in his "best" coat at the vet today

As some of you know, my dear baby IG broke his right front leg several weeks back. He and Lilly, our rambunctious year-old black lab, were rough-housing near the pond when we heard the scream to end all screams. It was a harrowing event for all concerned. Lilly was freaked-out and guiltily bolted off, feeling badly, no doubt. Our little Iggy had a steel plate and screws inserted to repair the break and hopefully restore him to "good as new" status.


Recovery mode three weeks ago

He has been walking around with no limp, looking exactly the same, except for a tiny, still-healing scar on his leg. (I am applying A&D ointment and Creme de la Mer in alternating doses.)

I am happy to say that today was a real hallmark for him: the all-clear from the orthopedic surgeon, and...

IT'S ALSO HIS SECOND BIRTHDAY!

Happy Birthday, my darling!

We are celebrating later with a small bacon-wrapped filet mignon for him, along with doggy ice cream for all three pooches.

Spoiled? Nah...

Barking happy,
ABL

Slot machines and video poker nowadays bring more than 70% of the total income of casinos. But why they are popular so? This question is easily answered. When the slot machines there are huge jackpots and the odds are huge.
