I remember the days when the thought of a Monday ruined my Sunday! That was pre-retirement times...........This past Monday was so enjoyable I wish there could be more like it! We started out with a trip to "town" (pop. 900) to take the "kids" to the Vet.
This is Patch, the Border Collie big brother of the two. He had to go in to get his Rabies booster for the year. He took it like a champ, as usual. The weigh in didn't really go in his favor though - 69 pounds - and told us he needs to lose a few! Right..............
This is Salli, the Blue Heeler Mix little sister. She had to have some staples taken out below her eye and next to her lower lip. We've been going to the Vet for months trying to figure out what is causing the infection and excessive scratching, etc. with no results. So she had some biopsies done, hence the staple stitches. And come to find out, it's all caused by allergies of some kind. And I cannot afford to have any more testing done so we will just take it as it comes. I'm sure when the steroids are done she will be back to scratching up a storm! sigh I'm sure it is something she eats outside since the "signs" show up around her mouth and face. It's tough being a canine Mom!
Anyway, after leaving the Vet we stopped at the Webbers Falls Park on the Arkansas River and let them romp a bit. Patch even went in the river to retrieve a stick and did some swimming! Salli wasn't about to go in the water so she just watched. It was a beautiful, warm day though, and the river was beautiful. Wish I'd taken my camera!
After leaving there we stopped by Burger King and got us each an ice cream cone, with a dish of it for the "kids". Boy were they lapping that up! Now, what did I say about the weigh in?? lol
It sure proves that it's the little things in life that make it all worth while! Until next time, take care.
