Good morning friends.
Before I dive in and tell you all about the Run Through the Meadows race at Spruce Meadows next weekend, I wanted to give y’all a bit of a Merlin update (just in case you don’t follow me on Instagram stories, Snapchat, or Facebook…). 10 minutes before I was supposed to pick him up, I got a call from the vet saying he was having trouble peeing again, so they were going to keep him overnight. 10 minutes after that he let me know he reinserted the catheter for the night (I still haven’t spoken with him this morning). I mentioned yesterday my step-dad ran a vet hospital for years, so I chatted with my mom last night and their recommendation is to proceed with with perineal urethoscopy surgery as blockages are very likely to occur in the future.
While it’s not the update I wanted, I’m very glad this happened when he was still at the vet, and the care he’s received from Calgary North Veterinary has been excellent. If you’re in Calgary and are looking for a wonderful clinic, I can’t recommend them enough.
Obviously if Merlin undergoes surgery he’ll need some special care for the next week or two, so I’ve decided I won’t be going to SeaWheeze. However, this means I will be able to participate in the second Spruce Meadows Run Series event on August 14, Run Through the Meadows.
The Heroes Behind the Heroes race had military on site, and this race will have firefighters (guys! firefighters!) and, as usual, there will be food served by Cravings after the event.
