You know I said that the vet says Tilly's teeth aren't in good shape? They feel pretty sharp when your fingers are caught in between them. She really doesn't like those tablets and, most unusually for a polite and gentle little dog, clamped her mouth shut when trying to avoid swallowing them. Unfortunately, my hand was in the way. Still, no harm done, and now I know better than to do them one by one. I open her mouth with one hand and, with the other, shove all pills to the back of her throat until she swallows. Kinder, as that way she doesn't get the taste.
In the meantime, I was working on the central pillar, up to where the next ornamental brick will go. They are four ordinary bricks high, so that's as high as I went.
