I purchased another plant. This brings my apartment's grand total to THREE, yes THREE, greenie goodnesses. Their names are Lock, Load and Flea. With the exception of Lock (who was a gift from my parents), Load & Flea are pity purchases from the supermarket...they really need to not sell plants.
Most importantly (but in third position, oddly), Mina went to the vet! She did super awesome with not whining, growling or glaring at other dogs. At one point, there were four dogs in the lobby and while Mina was interested, she was easily distracted with c-o-o-k-i-e-s. She weighed in at 38 pounds, which the vet said is actually an okay weight but would like to see her at 40. Mina's thyroid medicine was reduced (apparently it can cause weight loss) and the vet said I could definitely switch to a generic (is cheaper!) Mina was growled at by a Bichon and she was all wtf and I was all wtf (and the owners thought it was cute, yuck).
That is all.
