Ginga last night had a little red swelling on one of his legs, with some plasma coming out when squeezed. It doesn't seem to hurt him, he's playing and running around like normal but it may be a little itchy. So he got a doctor's visit because I don't know what it is. He had a good time at the doctor's, running around smelling everyone and being cuddled by all the waiting people. Eventually he got weighed - he's 25 Kg, which makes him a few Kg heavier than when he last got weighed in August or so. I think it's all muscle ha ha ha. Anyway he finally saw the doctor who thought it was his front foot with the abscess. I told her about the back foot and she looked at it, pulled out a 10ml syringe and a small needle to aspirate some cells from the abscess. She put the needle in, G-man didn't even seem to notice, and aspirated some blood/cells. She was worried it might be a tumour :( so she looked at it under the microscope and just saw pus and cells, no tumour. Good that he saw the doc though, poor little guy. He has some antibiotics to take until the swelling goes down, but if it increases he has to go back for another visit. Very brave Ginga.

Merry Christmas from Santa Boo and Santa Ginga, they are very happy because they went to the park for 2 hours and chased lots of squirrels and rabbits. Also they got a few cheesesticks and big biscuits!

Ginga and Boo-boo are enjoying in the snow! They would be out there all the time if it was up to them. I think they get more active in the -10 weather we were having, unlike us who don't want to do much. B behaved badly in the park today, escaping through a hole in the fence and chasing rabbits in some woods. Well that's understandable, but he wouldn't come when called and eventually had to be caught when he got tired. Bad boo-boo!!!! We also had a Sierra sighting, she escaped again, this time we found the owners quickly.

We had a visitor for a while yesterday - a black and white dog called Sierra. She found our guys on their morning walk and started playing with them and followed them home. With no owner in sight we bribed her with the doggies and cheesesticks :) so we could read her tag and find her owner and so that she wouldn't get hurt roaming around on the streets by herself. Well the tag led us to a phone number and a name (Sierra) but the wrong owner phone number. After calls to animal control and the humane society, we put her in another flat until her owners called us. Anyways we checked on her in the afternoon and took her to the nearby vet to see if they knew her, they gave us another number which was disconnected. So we were walking her back when some girls in a car stopped and asked if the husky was ours! So the owners found the doggie, they had no idea how she got out, but they bundled her up in the car and went away. Hope we see her again, but since we hadn't seen her before, I'm not sure if that will happen. She seemed to like wrestling with Ginga although he was a bit intimidated, I think she outweighs him by quite a lot! the G-man kept running under the living room table after wrestling for a little bit. She also kept blocking him from the people ha ha ha, so the shoe was on the other foot for a while for the Gingster. I'm sure the boo-boo was looking at him and laughing. Schadenfreude anyone?
