Today we crossed off yet another item from Oreo’s bucket list – eating REAL ice cream! So, like any good Rochesterian, we headed to Abbotts!
For those of you not familiar with Abbotts, it’s a delicious family -owned ice cream shop. They have dozens of flavor options and concoctions, and there just really isn’t anything quite as satisfying on a hot day.
Unfortunately for us, today was far from warm. It was a whopping 39* according to the car thermometer! Oreo didn’t seem to mind, though. He was just happy to be going for a ride, and even more happy to be getting a new treat!
Time for a bit of honesty…I ate his cherry. I didn’t feel too bad about it – he doesn’t like them anyway!
Boy oh boy, did he enjoy his ice cream! I got him a kiddie sized plain vanilla sundae with lots of whipped cream. He ate that thing in under 2 minutes (I timed it!) and without brain freeze – incredible!
This has been a pretty good week for Oreo. No upset tummy, he’s been eating better, and I found that when I crush up his antibiotic and put it in baby food, he inhales it without even thinking. His other meds he always takes without a problem, but the Clavamox was always what he would give me a hard time with; so learning that trick has made live so much easier. He was having a good amount of light bloody discharge from his nose; but hasn’t even had that in the past 2 days. Hopefully it’s an indication that his chemo is doing what it’s supposed to do.
For those of you who have been reading this blog for awhile, you may remember my successful attempts at making Oreo his very own doggy ice cream (if you missed it, you can check it out at this link – http://diaryofacrazypetmom.com/127-2/ ). Cold weather doesn’t exactly put me in the mood to make my own ice cream (or to do anything but lay in bed), but after seeing how happy he was with this frosty treat, I think I’ll be starting to make him his favorite ice cream treats again!
