I’ve been on the hunt for a bar cart for what seems to be a lifetime. While I was driving home yesterday in my “staying up all night with a hurt dog” fog, I spotted what looked to be a bar cart on my neighbor’s sidewalk.
I pulled my car around to park, but since there wasn’t a huge, glaring “FREE” sign, I decided to knock on the door to see if it was really free, or if I was just hallucinating. My neighbor, who I’ve never met before, (he lives pretty far down the road), thanked me for asking and pretty much begged me to take it. So I tossed it in my car and brought it home.
It’s not my dream bar cart (that one has a glass top and gold finishes), but for a free, decorative bar cart, I’m not complaining at all.
I spent the rest of the night worrying over Tucker, who was reacting a little too well to his tranquilizers. I swear he’s a cartoon dog. I was FaceTiming with my mom for about 2 hours so I could keep showing her what he looked like and had her reassure me he was ok.
Fortunately he’s feeling much better than last weekend. We took him to the orthopedic surgeon who told us that he doesn’t need surgery to fix his arm, but he’s recommending a preventative surgery to hopefully stop any future injuries and lower the risk of arthritis and degenerative joint disease in the future. So we got good news and not-so-great news, but for right now we’re just concentrating on getting him well.
