This Week on the Island 11/30/2014

‘This Week on the Island’ is written by Doug Bennett and is an update to friends about happenings in Key West last week. Everything is true except for those parts that are lies.
Weather: Another cold front. It was 58 degrees by Friday morning but we expect it to be back in the mid 70’s by Sunday.
I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving and ate way more than they should have.
This week was all about Koda.

It started last Saturday morning when we got up and found that she had thrown up twice at the front door. She was fine most of the rest of the day and then Saturday night she started throwing up again. She was a sick puppy.

At midnight we call Dr. Doug, the vet in Marathon. We loaded the dogs in the car and were at the vet’s office my 2:00 AM. The x-rays showed an obstruction in her intestine. They kept her and did surgery Sunday morning. We picked her up on Tuesday afternoon. She was wearing ‘the cone of shame’.

 I went thru her toys and found the tail was missing from one of her squeaky toy.

She has been taking lots of drugs and is doing very well. We will take her back in 14 days to have the staples removed from her stomach.

We leave with the runners starting their run on Front Street next to Hog’s Breath on Saturday morning at 8:00 AM.
Sunday at 4:00 PM is the burning of the hurricane flag at Truman Waterfront. The hurricane season is officially over for 2014.
Key West you have got to love it
