Mom called the vet's office, and they said to bring him over and leave him for a while until one of the vets could look at him. Later on, Dr. Vodraska called Mom and said that she wasn't sure what caused the nasty place on Tristan's side, but it might be something like a spider bite or else something was stuck in there, like maybe a cat claw. Dr. V thought Tristan ought to have surgery to take the thing off, whatever it was. So Mom agreed, and she got to spend more money, just to prove how much she loves us dogs.

But now here's some other news. Yesterday Mom went to a fancy shoe store to buy some nice, comfy shoes to wear when she is standing around for hours, being a security officer at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art. The man at the store measured Mom's feet, and it turned out that her left foot is a whole size bigger than her right foot. Once before, when she was buying hiking boots, Mom had also found this out about her feet.

had surgery lately, and I want to keep it that way!
This seems crazy to me, because of course Mom should be only spending money on us dogs and not on shoes for herself. Mom says I am probably right, but she was feeling selfish, and she hopes I can forgive her.
