I want to post the meds that Patches received last week so I have a record of what they were. When I got home with them I saw that the prescription labels on the bottles had someone else's name on them. That was not a big issue except for the Tranadol (a controlled substance). I could find myself in trouble with the law for possessing someone else’s prescription medication. I stopped at the vet yesterday and got the labels corrected.

Patches is much better. She climbs the steps slowly and is somewhat unsteady in doing it but does not hesitate when told to go into Desperado. Last week, and for the prior couple of months, she didn't want to climb the stairs. I knew she must be suffering because she was no longer the Patches that I have known for eleven years. Not much better about peeing in her bed however; she did that again.

I took Patches to All Creatures Veterinary Service yesterday fully prepared to have her put down. She has not been willing to climb the steps into Desperado for a couple of weeks now. A few days ago when I tried to pick her up she squealed in pain. Plus she has peed in her bed twice during the last 10 days and can no longer do our walks at the usual pace or distance. The vet there has given me some meds that she thinks will correct those issues and keep Patches alive for an unknown time yet. We will see.

Erik had a good day at his last Wednesday group training class. He did almost everything that the trainer required that he was to do. He still needs more training with the Down command but he is better with that also. At the end of the class one of the other dog owners came up to me and said that she was impressed with how well Erik had done. I wish Erik could have heard her and understood the compliment.

I struggled to finish reading this book and the customer review expresses my thoughts. I disagree only about the character development. He develops character after character until it is like a clown car at the circus; they just keep coming and keep coming.

This was a good read but is not the adventure book that Severin's earlier books were. It is as much a book about Wallace as it was about Severin's voyage.
