Paws Crossed for Jake

My foster dog Jake is going in tomorrow for dental work. On a scale of 1 to 4 with 4 being the worse, his teeth are a 4. He is expected to loose many of them. They have to put him out and his system is already compromised by the infection.

He woke me up at 3am with what seemed like trouble breathing and he scared me. He has a sinus infection and possibly some kennel cough. The vet said one nostril was not "breathing" at all and the other not at full force. He was breathing partially through his mouth. Likely this sinus infection is related to the bad teeth.

Thank you to the rescue friendly vet who is giving us a huge break on the fee.

I will tell Jack to keep his paws crossed and I will say a prayer. I hope he will be better soon. Poor thing. I hate dentist visits)-:

We ran an errand early this morning and saw this guy leaving the pond and making his way somewhere else. The Muscovy ducks, more about them ...
