I'm also touched that so many readers understand how hard it is too loose a favorite vet. I actually didn't use Dr. Gaylord for long but he is by far the best vet I've worked with in 13 years. Dr. K, the vet Dr. Gaylord turned his cases over too, seems good too and I've spoken to him about Norbert. He is in agreement that Norbert is probably just dealing with an infection.
I wanted to start turning my blog back to its usual more cheerful format with today's post. I blog to make myself and, hopefully, others happy and there's no better time to try and do that then the See Beautiful blog hop. Of course there is no better example of See Beautiful then the support I got in the kind comments about Norbert, but I do think another example comes with my one of my favorite entertainers: the incomparable Fred Astaire. Fred brought beauty to millions of audience members with everything he did. In particular the delightful Astaire and Roger's movies lifted audiences out of the struggles of the great depression into a glamorous dream world. Of course they are escapist entertainment, but I think we can all do with a bit of escape. The following clip is one of my favorite scenes from any Astaire film, I think its pretty obvious why. Fred does appear to be quite the dog walker. I also love the song, Beginner's Luck, since I married my college sweet heart and first real boy friend it always reminds me of my own relationship, and that like Fred I am lucky through and through.
