Tourist Guide

We were two happy collies at our home.  Dad's sister Becky came to visit.  She came in on the 2 March and left 7 March.  Dad took vacation while his sister was in town.  We had two hoomans to watch over, which was pawtastic.  
2 March - Resting Before Visitor Arrives
The week started rough for Dad as he got a huge bump on his neck on Tuesday, 28 February.  It didn't hurt so he gave it day to subside.  He ended up seeing the doctor on 2 March before Becky arrived.  The doc gave Dad antibiotics.  The silly thing started leaking late Friday and Dad saw the doctor Monday.  He lanced the spot and drained out the puss.  Becky played Mom asking the doctor all kinds of question.  The area is healing and getting smaller.  Doc told them it was a cyst.
Dad's Cyst
The week promised to be windy, so the hoomans went on a glass bottom boat tour on Friday morning.  As it turned out that was the only time the boat went out while Becky was here.  High winds kept the boat from going out.  
Six Toed Cat Tracks
Sleeping Six Toed Cats
On Saturday they went on the sight seeing trolley and visited the Mel Fisher Museum, the Little White House and Hemingway's house.  When they came back in we gave them a thorough sniffing as they smelled like cats!  Sunday they went to church, saw the Southern Most Point and visited the Butterfly Museum.  Dad got a blister on his foot. BOL.  Then came Monday and Becky saw the Botanical Gardens and then went to the Doctor with Dad.

Wonder If Any Teenage Mutant Turtles Crossed Here?
Becky left Tuesday morning.  Dad straightened up the house and our world returned to normal.  It was good having visitors.

Always good to have visitors. Sounds like y'all had fun! I miss coming over for Christmas & New Years, but now there's other things to consider that affect visits like that. Sounds like u had a rough go if it with cysts and blisters. Too bad dog kisses can't act as medicine to make it go away cuz you'd b set and treatment would b free! BOL By the way, six-toed cats are called polydactyl, and it's a more common condition than u would think. I wonder if there's such a thing as six-toed doggies too???? :-)

we have heard about the six toed cats - Hemmingworth bred them specifically for their six toes

Always fun to get together with family. Glad you all had a good time. Except, of course, for the doctor part.

Sounds like the perfect visit...other than the doctor appointment! Ouch! Hope Dog Dad is all better now. But very glad Becky got to visit. Looks like you went to lots of interesting places!
