Nope, nope, nope....no more pets for me!

--Argh!.. My dad's dog, Peanut (a.k.a. nuthead, nutterbut, buthead, nuttimus--my photo/avatar), seemed a little lethargic and sore. He also was limping/stumbling a bit. We took him to the vet this morning and it seems he hurt his back pretty badly (herniated/slipped? disc). So, the vet gave him a shot of steroids and told us no steps, jumping or running for the little dear or he could hurt himself to the point of losing use of his legs. He also needs to come back for the next several days for shots in the mornings. I am so worried about the little mutt!
--Next....Miss Lucy has a lump slighty forward of her left hip. I have an appointment for her next week.
--And-Rastus (Mr. Cleese) got a bug bite of sorts on his head. He seems okay but if the swelling doesn't go down, he'll be seeing the vet, also. I must admit the effect of the swelling is to give him the likeness of a wild cat's wider nose. Rastus says Miss Lucy thinks it's a definite improvement on his features.
--Seven is feeling a little left out and I'm hoping he doesn't go out and try to catch some illness or break something.
--'STILL smokey outside from the Dismal Swamp fire!
