06:18 pm: Shiva's Ulcers Are Back
He's been eating dry food and snackies that I give directly to him, but this morning he tried snackies and barked three times. I caught him in the towel and looked at his mouth -- the ulcers are back, but not as bad. I called the clinic and a vet was supposed to call me back, but I haven't heard yet. I just gave him about a third of a can of AD as a slurry and he liked that.

We had an earthquake today -- 1.8 -- and I slept through it. Oh well.

I went to vote for city elections today. I didn't vote for Mayor because the incumbent Republican is the only one running. I didn't vote for Council because the Republicans got together and put up only two people for the two slots and nobody else is running. I did vote for two of the five candidates for four slots on the School Board. I voted for one incumbent who seems to have sense, and I voted for someone who has worked for the Board. I specifically didn't vote for a guy who flooded me with brochures using the slogan "It's All For the Kids!" because I think it's for the teachers and other employees and buildings and school buses, too.

He was not happy, but we got more antibiotics and a referral to a vet dentist. They were closed by the time we got back, so I'll call tomorrow.

Oh, dear. I hope you can get something that will clear up Shiva's ulcers for good. How frustrating to have them reappear just when he seemed better.

The vet who called yesterday said he may need steroids, or he may need his teeth pulled -- we're heading out to see her in about a half hour.
