10%

Tzuri dragged me to see the ruins of an old historic church in Sheldon, SC.

Then while I was taking pictures, she left a tithe of 10% on the lawn.

Diamond in the Rough

It wasn’t easy to see, but I spotted what I thought was a growth way on the back of Tzuri’s tongue.

She hates Vet Clinics but Dr. Stephanie Montor gave her an anesthetic and when she looked inside Tzuri’s mouth, it was not a tumor or any kind of growth, just a spot of dark pigmentation.

A second injection reversed the sedation and we went home. Tzuri slept for 8 hours. She had fasted since yesterday so her appetite was enormous. I took her downtown to her favorite waterside park tonight, pictured below from the day before.

But Tzuri hasn’t forgiven me yet. All she did was grumble and pout.

Private Space, Public Place

Tzuri misses the mountains and the West Coast but sheΒ is quite adept at finding play areas in crowded cities.

She has a touch of arthritis now, and I have to lift her into the car, but she’s still got game.

‘Tzuri was here”

Tzuri has enrolled in a sidewalk art class.

When she masters chalk, she wants to try spray paint.

Birthday Girl!

We took a day trip to Tampa to celebrate her 5th birthday. She wanted to play on this rock overlooking the water. I think she thought it was decorated like a birthday cake.

Good thing she can’t read the graffiti.
