magikist

Long day...

Mary and I spent most of the day shuttling Milton around so that he could give blood. We found out that he is type B, which that guy needed. We spent a lot of the time waiting while they tested his blood against the recipient, and though they couldn't tell if it was a near perfect match, they took a donation anyway. They also discovered that he has a cavity and heavy plaque buildup, which means he's going to need some dental work. Our regular vet said that they don't want to do it for a month, since he just contributed blood. Oh, well....

Still, it was nice to do a favor for someone. A mitzvah, if you will. (Been reading a lot of Faye Kellerman lately...)
