My life continues revolving mostly around my pets. I'm not going to write about the airline pet-transport nightmare until it all get resolved - but suffice it to say that I have been feeling frustrated to no end, and have broken down into tears over it several times. Also, Delta is incompetent. The wonderful Maya from http://www.petairline.co.kr has been helping me, and I truly hope that we will get everything straightened out by early next week.
Mochi is still a little under the weather. Despite the fact that I have a vet just around the corner from my house, I loaded the little fella into a taxi and rode over to Itaewon to take advantage of the English speaking vets at the Chung Wha Animal Hospital. They, too, were wonderful. It was very reassuring to be able to explain his symptoms in detail, and to receive explanations from the vet in detail. (The vet by my house is friendly and conveniently located, but he speaks less English than I speak Korean.) Courtesy of the Chung Wha Animal Hospital, Mochi now has a dog-sized transport crate, antibiotics, and deer antler extract to boost his immune system. (Anyone who thought my honey-citron was strange... take that!) Also, Chung Wha is open Monday through Saturday, and they're open until 8pm, meaning I was able to go after work. Woohoo!
The following photos were all taken with my cell-phone, so they're not the best, but they'll do :-)
