Sunday morning stroll at Elgin Trail.
Walks are getting tougher for the old guy. He is dragging all four paws these days; needs a lot of coaxing to stay in motion.
It was quite a nice October day, so we took a stroll on Crescent Breach. Stopped for a photo on the grassy knoll on the North end of the promenade. I didn’t notice the goober when taking the photo, but hey, he looks cute anyway.
Basty’s nasal cavity has been experiencing inflammation issues for the past 4 to 6 weeks. Back in August, I though it was just a cold; unfortunately, it wouldn’t go away. Long story short, he was evaluated by Dr Baxter at Canada West. She performed a rhinoscopy, scoping his cavity and taking biopsy’s. The biopsy’s came back negative, but that leaves his inflammation unexplained. We find ourselves dealing with it day to day. I am currently trying probiotics, hoping to boost his immune system. He has been on a lot of antibiotics over the past year. Hope is to rebalance his system. It is too early to know for sure; subjectively, the initial round was followed by inflammation subsiding. It reappeared again yesterday, so working on another round.
I didn’t ‘participate’ as an eclipse ogler, but certainly noticed the eerie light that accompanied the 86% of totality experienced in the Vancouver region. Photos below are of Basty’s shadow during totality. I know, the effect kinda gets lost in the framing of the photo. But hey, Basty is as cute as ever..!!
Basty and I are in Revelstoke for the week. This is a view of the Columbia River. We are staying at the Inn on the River, an AirBnB reservation.
