Script Dog

Seven was feeking left out this morning as I finished reading the script for the film I'm starting soon. This is his way of making sure I don't forget about him.

Auto Dog

We went out to Norco to see Dr. VanCise again last week. Seven loves the car and with the new phone camera, we can actually take a good shot of the pooch. He is not a stick his head out the window dog...... he prefers to lay in the well behind my seat and sleep. The sun was coming in and bouncing all over making him glow. He's finally back to his old self after 5 weeks of seeming sickness after problem after ailment.
The other picture is of him in the afternoon sun.

Old Interior

I found a picture of the old interior on the Ebay page that I first saw the 300cd on. It was pretty dirty and ripped up inside, including the headliner.

New Interior

I got the Mercedes 300cd back from the car upholsterers yesterday and love the job they did. The shop also did a little work on the body inside as well, repairing a bit of the rust damage. For anyone interested, the company is in Pasadena. Perez Upholstery 1129 South Fair Oaks.
When I first started to search for a place to do the work, I went to an official Mercedes place which quoted me about $6000 to do the whole interior. I guess Mercedes has kits made for each seat and section. Each front was going to run $1800. Ouch. Instead I did the whole thing for $1800 with Perez and I picking out some non Mercedes carpet but I like it a bit darker than the original. As ML says, it'll hide my dirt better.

Sunset Dog

Everytime we try to move back our Hollywood digs, something happens with the dog. Now he seems to have sprained his foot. The middle two toes are all swollen and red but he still walks around on it, although haltingly in the morning. Doctor gave us some aromatherapy drops for it. I want to put it in a sling.
Although the thought of leaving him like that with a tall flight of stairs to master is too much.
I just hope everything is fine when I leave for the next job next week.

Weekend Dog

Last week, Seven came home from Wagville with a fever. We took him over to the vets and she prescribed Flagyl for him. After 3 days, Seven was acting as though he was drunk.... staggering around, falling over, eyes rolling around. So we looked up Flagyl on the web and found out it has some nasty side effects. Especially in animals with liver damage. Being on Phenolbarbital for his seizures can tax the liver. I was so angry and threw the stuff in the garbage.
We went out to our holistic vet in Norco (70 miles each way) and got the dog some herbs and his first acupuncture session. Two days later, we finally had a good walk this morning with no falling over.
I would have thought the LA vet who knows Seven and his condition would have been more on top of things. But I guess you always have to be vigilant.

Jaguar XF

The new commercials for the Jaguar XF we did in Spain last year have made it to the airwaves. I saw it for the first time during the oscars.
