I just finished an overnight stay caring for two dogs named Casey and Maddy. Casey is the reason the overnight is required, as he has diabetes, and needs many trips outside to urinate. He also needs nine units of insulin every morning. Unfortunately, the diabetes has caused him to loose his sight. A clever little Maltese, he's learned to expect a baby carrot after each bathroom break. He now tries to finagle carrots by requesting pee breaks ten minutes after the last break. Casey loves carrots.
Casey's not the only one who loves carrots. His sister Maddy also gets excited when the carrot bag leaves the refrigerator. And when Maddy sniffs food, she snorts and wheezes as if having an asthma attack. Since she's a piggy who'll take Casey's carrot if given the opportunity, I have to stand and watch while they eat their treat.
Here's another picture of Maddy. She wants to go out and chase squirrels.
I can't get them out fast enough!
