For the most part, Yara’s last trip to Parkside Vet was a very good one. Aside from very nearly being trampled in the mad rush to grab a cupcake by the vet staff and Yara making a huge fuss while getting her nails trimmed. In fact, Yara exhibited a kind of elation that might lead one to believe her B12 shots are laced with LSD. She didn’t stop wagging her tail the entire time and this included the entire purpose of our visit: a rabies vaccine. She did find the lube on her rear-end to be a might disturbing and indulged in one of her less desirable habits.
I’m very pleased to report that Yara is a healthy 63.5 lbs and our vet was very happy with how good she looked, remarking especially that her coat appears wonderful. When posing for the above photo, Dr. Kucskar also remarked that after everything we’ve gone through in the last several years, she’ll really miss seeing Yara. And, possibly best of all, the entire trip only cost me $20. Even though she had a full exam and had her nails trimmed, I was only charged for the vaccine. I guess I should bring a cupcake bribe more often.
Speaking of the little pies, I’ve gotten a few emails about how they were prepared and a request to expand upon the ordeal of their preparation. If I had realized there was so much interest in how the various cupcakes I’ve made are done, I’d have made sure to do a photolog. Though, given the love for my kitchen floor these particular cupcakes had; maybe it’s for the best. But next time I’ll be sure to chronicle the steps with photos.
Anyway, follow the jump for some further details (or scroll down if you’re reading this outside of my website’s main page):
