Passed out

passed out in the vet's office
her leash still attached, she's not going anywhere
until she can at least walk out on her own 
four paws.
so stoic with a foxtail stuck deep in her ear
no wonder she wouldn't even move her eyes
to look at me
sedation and a long tweezer to pull it out.
now everytime she scratches her ears or
shakes her head, we will worry about foxtails,
we will dream of foxtails
tenacious sticky foxtails
and the poor animals to whom
they stick.
