A bit of biological adhesive, and the vein is sealing up nicely.

That needs some time to set. We'll spray the wound with benign bacteria to take up any ecological niche where harmful bacteria might grow.

You're not doing too badly. Your nose is cold and wet.

Doctor, that only counts when all of me isn't cold and wet.

That takes care of the leg wound. Now to get your temperature.

Doctor, I'm intelligent. I'm not going to bite the thermometer. Could you please use the type that goes in my mouth?

No, I don't think so.

Now don't look like that. These ear thermometers are faster and more accurate and you know it.

Do you feel cold?

Not really. I stopped shivering when I was in the water. Now I just feel kind of numb.

Okay, let's get you out of these wet clothes and wrap you in some nice, warm towels until I can get you into a hot bath.

Her body temperature is 31 degrees. At first I was worried the thermometer was broken. Now I'm worried because it's not.

The bath is ready. I've got the water at 35 ℃.

The bad thing about being a dog is you lose body heat very fast in cold water. The good thing is you should gain it back just as fast.

The other good thing is I have a tail I can tuck between my legs. Otherwise I wouldn't have any modesty left at all.

You need something warm to drink. Hot water okay?

F-fine, thanks.

Biologically speaking, being too cold to shiver ranks right up there with being too tired to sleep.

Now I'm starting to feel bad.

Great! That means you're doing better.

What you've been through is kind of like spending a rough day at the gym. You pushed your body hard and now you feel terrible. It's actually a good thing.

I mean, isn't that how you tell someone is in poor shape? Nothing hurts?

Drink up. You need to get some warm liquids inside you.

But I can't drink properly. Not like a person. I'm not built for it.

Oh, well. I'm sitting naked in his bathtub. It's probably a little bit late to worry about embarrassment.

Your body temperature is back up. You're well on your way to recovery.

I'm going to make some dinner. Do you want any?

No thanks. I'm really not hungry.

Too bad for her. I've been using “The Entomologist's Cookbook”. She's missing out on a fine centipede casserole.

If I'm recovering, there's no point in sitting here. First, a quick shower to get the mud out of my hair.

Then I've got to call Sam and Helix. They must be worried about me.

Ha! I win! I've got four kings. You've only got two. What? Four kings beat two kings. Can't you do the math?

Yes, I added a few cards to my hand. What's the big deal?

As soon as I said it, I knew it was the wrong thing to say.
