Two point oh

Well, hello!

It’s the weekend happy dance

September 12, 2014 Pete 2 Comments


Some days I think the weekend is never going to get here. We all let out a big sigh of relief at 5 pm on Friday nights.

So many things to see and do, The real question is, how many things will actually get checked off of the list. Before we know it, Sunday night will be right back.

Still ticking away

Flo’s new cocktail of cardiac meds seem to be helping. She’s not as logy as she was, she’s eating really well and her heart rate seems to have slowed some.

I’m not sure when she gets her next ekg. I’m so glad she is so easy going. It makes it so much easier to go to the vet clinic.

We changed her over to the Darwin’s food and she really loves that. She is a pain in the butt to get pills into though.

We are scheduled to go on vacation in three weeks. All the dogs except Flo and Flocko will go out to the boarding kennel. These two will have their very own private vet tech staying with them.  I just felt better knowing that they were going to be close to the vet clinic.

The mid-week stretch

Chances are pretty good we will make it through the week, but right now, the verdict is still out.

I think I’m losing my marbles now

Danny Bleu   

I walked into the living room the other day and I swear I saw Danny Bleu laying on a cushion. I looked away and he was still there.

That night as we were watching TV I saw a shadow running into the house from the back yard into the kitchen and that happened two or three times.

We have said good bye to many of our greyhounds and things happen around the house all of the time that are remnants of behaviors past, but I have never ever been wide awake and at the same time see one of our dogs.

I guess everything that has happened over the last few months is starting to catch up in my brain.

It’s probably a good thing we are going on vacation in a few weeks.

Sara vs the spider

Our vet thinks that Sara was probably bitten by a spider or some other bug.

I felt much better with that diagnosis, but that doesn’t help the panic it put us through last night. My only hope is that she squashed it the bugger in the process!

She’s still limping just a bit tonight, but she is so much better. The vet sent her home with antibiotics and benedryl.

Guess we’ll be keeping a closer eye for spiders this fall. I think it’s a little early for them to be moving in though.

Oh Sara!

Yesterday when we got home, Sara was having a harding time walking so of course, we raced over to the vet clinic with her. I am bordering somewhere between panicked paranoid and frazzled.

There wasn’t anything unusual on the tests. She was doing much better this morning and we thought we had jumped the gun.

Tonight when we got home, she has a huge swelling on her shoulder.

We need a break. This worrying is horrible.

She’ll be at the vet clinic as soon as they open their doors in the morning.

So many things

Our little monkey is doing really well. She tolerates her eye drops like and a champ and although we still see some evidence of the pannus, we really hope we have it under control.

Flo is doing really well. Her heartbeat is still irregular and fast, but she’s happy and barky and eating well.

Sara gave us a bit of a scare today when she had a hard time walking on her left side. We made our way to the clinic and there wasn’t anything remarkable, her xrays looked good and tonight we are keeping a close eye on her.

Yesterday marked two weeks from the day we lost Crystal. My heart still aches for her, I miss her so much.

We have so many things to be grateful for and yet… I long for one more day, just one.

Sunset Sara

September 5, 2014 Sara 2 Comments


This time of year is always bittersweet for me. I am hardly ready for the leaves to fall from the trees and yet, I welcome the beautiful sunsets.

We are definitely enjoying the warm days and cool nights and mornings are the dogs. Sara is our little huntress. She loves the menagerie of squirrels and birds that frequent the acre. The evenings seem to bring the best times to search out the varmin.

Once the rain and the colder days return, the hunting won’t be as enjoyable.
