Mad (Or Just Gross?) Science

Luke got out his microscope last night and had a grand time "teaching" the dog all about it. It was fun for him to look at all the pre-made slides with common items, such as apples and salt.

Luke's interest began to wane quickly, so student turned to experiment and I helped him look at Indy under the microscope. We let Indy lick a slide and examined his saliva. It looked like a rainbow.

We used tweezers to grab some hair. I'm happy to report we saw no fleas.

I left the room and came back to a specimen of Luke's own doing:

"What is it?" I asked.

"Indy's eye juice."

So, maybe he's more Dr. Frankenstein than Einstein.

At least it was just eye juice...having a scientist boy myself, I was worried it was going to be a different bodily fluid! LOL

At least it is an educational activity. It could have been much grosser than eye juice :)

At first I laughed... and then I thought to myself "Damn... that is one patient as hell dog!" I hope Indy got extra treats for putting up with that one!

Ok, it was funny for a second until I wondered how he got the dogs eye juice onto the slide. Maybe some things are better left unknown. :-)

Dear Heather,

Hang in there, it will all be worth it if you can remember it. We just did tics with our grandson.

Congratulations, so far, you are not the biggest WHINER that I have come across this holiday season. Unfortunately there is no prize but keep up the good work.

My book, Thou Shalt Not Whine was just Voted The #1 Best Book to be given Anonymously. As you know, this is really a great year for whiners.

So if any of your readers are looking for a Christmas gift for that someone special, this is it!

No Whine in 2009, however Wine is just fine!
