hi everybody. well, this weekend was okay except for the fact that on sunday shambles began to show me that she had a UTI. these dogs are very stoic, so you often don't know something is wrong until its fairly well developed. she felt like she had to tinkle even when she didn't and spent several hours asking to go outside, whining and worrying. we finally got her calmed down and comfortable, only to have it start up again around midnight and last until 2 am. of course this started on a sunday, and we considered taking her to the emergency clinic but when she quieted down we decided to just keep giving her cranberry and extra fluids and wait until she could see her own vet today. rob is en route to the vet with a urine sample and will make an appt. for her when he gets there. hopefully they can get us in early this morning so she can start on her antibiotics and feel better quickly. once she quieted down at 2 we both managed to catch a little sleep until she wandered in wanting her breakfast a little after 5. then we all laid down again until 7. not a typical morning schedule by any stretch. fortunately today is my day to do 5 leslie miles, and that is pretty easy to fit in even if i don't get to it until tonight. i think my shoulder is healed to the point where i can start week 6 of podrunner tomorrow--i will officially then have gone farther with the 10 week program than i did last time i started.
we got stuff put away outside so there are just a few odds and ends left there. but its a very disjointed morning and is going to take me awhile to get my bearings.
hope everybody got more rest than i did and has a lovely monday!
