A and I took Arnold to the vet today. Arnold had a lot of fun on the ride over; he has decided he likes car rides. He waited until we were in the parking lot of our destination, and then threw up in the front seat. The really fun part was that there were bits of undigested Q-tips in the vomit.

While he was at the vet, A and I went to a nearby mall. I had a great time hanging out with him. We bought him some shoes, two single player video games (the bribe), and one video game that we could play together. We went into Sharper Image and tried out all the massaging chairs. We ate lunch at the food court. A found some Chinese food that he pronounced not up to the quality of the dingy cafe in our neighborhood. I was glad he had not tried the Japanese sushi place.

We picked up Arnold, who was fairly good at the vet. He is up to 16.5 pounds, and has to go on a diet and a Q-tip abstinence program. However, he was dying to get out of the office, and was only mildly perky on the ride home. Once home, he slept hard the rest of the afternoon.

"undigested q-tips". Why do they EAT this stuff? My dog used to drag Tripp's shirts out of the laundry hamper and bite the buttons off. You'd hear it in the night: gnaw, gnaw, CRACK!

Eew. The crazy thing is Arnold is so picky about food but will eat anything he can knock out of a trash can.

He is fine. I don't have much sympathy for him because he knocked down our trash can and rifled through it to get the Q tips.
