Clos du Bois Chardonnay, unknown year

$9 a glass, unlike its cousin the disgusting Clos du Bois merlot, surprisingly, it's a smooth sweet easy-to-drink chardonnay with some Brazilian fried cod fish for a chilly night on Sunset with my exchange student friend from Provence. Short finish, but hey, it's good enough for a glass over a decent conversation. He's just 22 dude! Get over it!

My dog has just been diagnosed of fatal illness. I should really cut down my outings. Argh..., pondering how to handle the four figure veterinary bill now... A typical evening after my codependent Ex returned her: walked her; made allergen-free dry dog food mixed with human grade raw rabbit meat and soothing digestive relief; talked to her in English, Cantonese and a bit French; an hour later, Prednisone; walked her again; washed her feet, butt and pee holes with clean water; wrote a little bit; before bed, doggy antacid and another infection medicine... I get up at 6:00AM to do the same in the morning... Just like for a human baby... I love my dog's life more than my own life... And she does so too... She won't let anybody touch her butt and nails except myself... I do most of the grooming and manicure myself cuz she hates everybody except me... Downtown Chick is depressed... My bitch really IS me...

I'm really sorry to hear the news about your beautiful dog. I know how bad you must feel. I've been through the same thing, and it was a really dark time for me.

I'll keep both of you in my best wishes and thoughts.

Thank you guys...

Taking her to a board certified internal medicine vet tomorrow and see if there's anything they can do... Sigh...

Bob Pielke said...

Is she comfortable...?

Downtown Chick said...

She's fine when she's with me.

Bob Pielke said...

How'd the vet visit go...?

Downtown Chick said...

They took some samples from her in this couple days and will let me know their findings tomorrow or Monday.

I'm so sorry to hear about your dog's illness- she is so cute (I love Schnauzers).

Wishing you and your "biatch" a happy holiday season.
