I have a contractor (handy man) coming this morning to give me an estimate on building a dog lot/run for Lucy. She loves just sitting or standing and smelling the wonderful smells. I walk her, but this would give her more time to just enjoy the outside during the day.

Looks like we are going to get rain today. My job is to vacuum the house today as she sheds and track in leaves, etc.

I hope all is well with Janet too.

Lucy looks like she has been with you for years. Didn't take her long to settle in. Dogs just know when "they find a home". It's amazing.

I wonder where Janet is? Maybe spending a lot of time with her Dad. I think this time, losing the goody, was my fault lol. It wouldn't be so bad it I only had a sentence or two, but I had a long note.

We did end up having a good bit of rain and thunder, Zoey wasn't happy, but then it cleared up. This is really crazy weather these days! Didn't think about humidity being good for fighting the fires, I'm glad it's good for something!!!! Too bad about losing the Spark goodie!! I just hate when that happens!!!

It's about bedtime, talk to you tomorrow!!

Janet, hope all is well, we miss you!

About an hour ago, I swear I heard thunder. I took Munchie outside about 1 am and I saw a lot of white puffy clouds. I just thought "what a crazy 3 days we have had" Humidity is good for fires though, so I hope they get a bit of rain. It sure will help. Glad your Daughter was ok. It is scary.
We had one that close a few years ago too. You can still see the scars in some of my pictures when we walk in the hills. But in general, the life has been coming back to the hills. I had a long note written to you (spark goody), and I accidentally closed out the web site. Jeez. I need to refill my Tea, then I will try again lol.

Good to hear some people are getting to go back home, hoping this is not a summer filled with fires in so many areas. A few years ago the fires came fairly close to our daughter's in Colorado, it was scary for sure.

Jeanne, glad you were able to sit outside for a little while!!!! emoticon

I'll have to see if I can find Zoey a hound costume!!! We didn't get to walk today, she had her vEt appt. and by the time we got through it was too hot. Then this evening after dinner we went to see friends that were here from Tally on vacation. Hopefully we will go in the morning.
We are still very warm here!!
Praying for the fires and firefighters out in your area,Jeanne. That is so bad again this year.
Hugs to all your furbabies Jeanne and Janet!

Are you still warm there Sandi? Hope you and Zoey took a walk today. Giver her a kiss for me.

That's great. Lucy is getting spoiled with love and attention. She deserves it. You need to submit a good picture of her. I need to start changing the team pics again. Henley has been the team mascot for a long time.

Sandi, put Zoey in a Hound costume for our team pic lol. It is still very smoky here, but more Fire Fighters have arrived from other areas. That will help. The poor Fire Fighters in Calif. They have to be exhausted. Please keep all of them in your thoughts. The winds keep changing directions, so it has been a hard fire to battle.

Hope ya'll have a good week!

Bless you for adopting an older dog. The set of dogs we have now were ages 5 for the Weimaraner and 3 for the Lab mix when we adopted them. Prior to that we'd always adopted dogs when they were about 1. I like skipping the puppy stage but I really enjoy the calmness when adopting an older dog.

We are having a thunderstorm this morning and expecting rain again this afternoon. We sure do need the rain!! I'm going to Dad's today. The neighbor girl is coming with me because her family is going to be gone and she needs to stay home so she can get to work at 5. I'll let her drive if it isn't raining too much.

So glad Lucy got a clean bill of health except for the dry eyes. Zoey has a problem with one of her eyes but it tears alot. I have drops for them though and it does help. I'm sure Henley and Lucy would get along great together!!!!

Janet, that is too bad about Hospice not helping out, also about your concern for your sweet pup getting up in years. Zoey is our first little dog and it sure makes it easier with us traveling but I love big dogs!!!!!!

Hope everyone is having a good Saturday. Zoey and I got our walk in. We had a bad storm last night and it knocked out the dvr so the one TV isn't working but there's still one upstairs so that satisfies hubby!!!

To bad we don't live closer to each other. She sounds like a dog Henley would enjoy being pals with. Glad she got a clean bill. I have dry eyes too. I know how that feels. What are the name of the eye drops?

Morning. I took Lucy for her first vetís appointment and to see what the vet thought about her age and the eye issue (lack of producing tears). I didnít think the medicine the foster gave me was helping. The vet says she is between 6 & 7 years old and in good health other than the dry eye which is fairly common and can stem from several things and she does want to try another medication. Lucy got her nails trimmed, microchip, rattlesnake vaccine, Lepto Recombitek4 vaccine, came home with Nexgard & Heartgard, ear wash and a new harness rather than the collar (because she wants to pull when she catches a sent she canít resist. She had a wonderful time meeting a couple of other dogs and now is laid out on the rug taking a nap.

It sounds like Lucy is fitting right in. You are so lucky to have found each other!!! I agree that the hair, drool, nose prints, etc. just make a house a home.

I can't imagine life without a dog. I think, since we got our first dog in 1987, we have gone exactly one week without one. It was just too hard.

That being said, I had an awful thought this morning. Charlie is nearly 10 and a big dog just under 100 pounds. I see clear evidence of his aging. I mail order Frontline for the dogs and had to choose between a 6 month supply or a 12 month. We don't use Frontline on Molly and I can't imagine having another dog this large (though I can't ever say never). I did not enjoy having to make that choice. Sadly, I chose 6 months.

Jeanne, I have long meant to ask you about your suggestion of hospice for my stepmother. Here you have to be certified by a doctor that there is not an expectation that you will live more than 6 more months. You can and be recertified but the expectation is that you are near death. So, for us, hospice wouldn't get involved. Maybe if there was a debilitating stroke and her last one (in the hospital) did cause some damage. She's making improvements though.

We had a full but good day. Lucy slept all night and never moved from her bed. We had lots of walks today and a couple of friends came to see her. I had a house painter here and that was a problem because he was doing doors when meant they had to be open for a while until they dried. She definitely wasn't going for the crate. So the long walks, a visit to the dog park, etc. She's tired now and on her bed in our bedroom. We have a vet appointment in the morning to meet and greet and check her out and a private obedience lesson on Tuesday. LOL I see I'm going to have more house cleaning with all the drooling and shedding. Still the best thing I've done in a long time.

Earnie, that's great your dog is so calm. I agree, being in a new environment can make her nervous. Once she sees you will always be there when she needs you, she will relax.

Janet. Your poor MIL..She has gone through so much. I hope she does better now.
Hope your Dad gets used to your MIL being gone. It's such an adjustment. How did the appts. go? Glad Charlie's ear is better. We stayed home on the 4th too. What a display of fireworks in our backyard though.

Hi!! Life continues to be busy here. My stepmother started in assisted living July 1, had a brain bleed on July 4 and spent four days in the hospital. She's now in a nursing home but improving every day. This place seems like a good fit for her but having had three moves in one week's time really took a toll on her. Dad is adjusting. We make sure he gets company every day, sometimes overnight. This was a busy week for him with at least one appointment every day. He spent an overnight here because he had appointments on consecutive days at the Clinic in the town I live in. Charlie had a nasty ear infection but his follow up appointment was yesterday and all looks good. Molly survived the fireworks on the 4th. I'm so glad we chose to stay home.

MAUTIN, Welcome!! Your new dog looks absolutely beautiful. I especially love the picture of her in her new home. She looks like a calm dog.

Jeanne, The chairs you helped make are beautiful. Thank you for helping out for such a good cause.

Sandi, Good luck with the reunion.

Charlie and Molly send their love!!

Close to 4 years old, I think. Going to see what my vet says. She slept through the night on her bed right by my bed last night and never moved. But she still wants me in her sight this morning. It will take a few days for her to feel comfortable and safe without me where she can see me. Such a good dog.

Oh my goodness. Love the 2nd shot. Almost a smug look "I have a new home!" lol. Looks like she has a good personality. I can't remember if you said how old she was.

Two more of Lucy. The first one as I picked her up and the second at her new home.

Her name is Lucile Ball, but I will call her Lucy or Luc!

I have nights like that too. it's irritating lol.
To my knowledge no homes were lost, but the fire was at their backdoor so to speak. Fire Fighters are awesome. I took a nap today too. I was only going to lay down and watch TV for a bit, but I fell asleep. Guess I needed it.

Sure hope it works out for you to get the pup(s)!!! I'm not familiar with that breed but will look it up!

Jeanne, glad you aren't near the fires. It is terrible that you had to turn your a/c off in the middle of the day but smelling smoke is so bad for you. Sure hope and pray the people and homes will be okay. That is so sad.

Today was church, nap and visited with a neighbor. I only slept 3 hours last night, just wasn't sleepy for some reason. I hate those kind of nights!

We're doing good here thanks. The fire in Newhall is about 35 miles from us. And on the other side of Mountains. Yesterday we did get smoke, but today is clear. Thanks for asking.

That is good news. Redbone's are beautiful dogs. Is it purebred? Are both dogs they talked about Redbone's? If not, what was the other type of dog. I guess that made your day!

HICKOK-HALEY, I hope you are safe from the fires and that they are put out soon.

Good morning all. I just received a message from the rescue group I contacted and they had two lovely small to mid sized females that they thought would be a good match and I have requested and will hopefully get a 40 lb Redbone. Iím excited for a new journey for us both. Off to Church with much to be thankful.

Oh my, sugar heaven lol. I bet it was good though. I haven't made Brownies for a long time.
It isn't as smoky right now. Not sure if they have the worst of the fire taken care of, or if the winds changed. We did have to turn off our air conditioning because all you could smell was smoke. Hottest part of the day too. Thank goodness we have portable coolers. They did have to evacuate more people. Hope homes don't burn down. That is always so sad.
A lot of people forget Dennis works week-ends lol. It gives me a day or two to rest up, so it works out.

That is awful about the homes having to be evacuated. I don't know why people aren't more careful but they don't seem to be!
I forget about Dennis working weekends, it is good you have all week to do things together.

Doing pretty good here. Kathryn just came out of her room and said it smelled like a fire. We went out and looked, and it was hazy. I went online and checked it out. There is one in Newhall, about 45 mins. S/W of us. I wish people would be careful. About 50 homes have had to be evacuated. Nice homes too.

The siblings take turns having it and we usually have it in Tally but decided to be different to have it here in the mountains in October. His sister is very controlling and always wants her way in whatever we do. He is really upset at her changing her mind after we have put deposits on the house. That's why we are going to look at the motels tomorrow in North carolina where the house is. It's only about 20 minutes from our cabin. He does have a big family, one brother passes away about 5 years ago.

You're having the reunion in the Mountains or in Tally? Sorry, I am confused. Sounds like he has a big family.

Usually the big money movies aren't even ones I care to see!!!!
I love Red Robin!! We have one in Tally but we don't go there much.
Tomorrow we are going to look at a couple of motels that we are thinking of using for Charles' family reunion in October new have rented a big house for his siblings and spouses but there are others who might come. It's really a pain to set up this far in advance but October is a busy month in the fall. We were trying to do something different I state do having it in Tally in the summer
We don't have a El Pollo Loco in Tally but I know they are good.

Hugs from me and kisses to Henley from Zoey

Sort of..We had running around to do. Grocery shopping etc. We had to pick up Henley's allergy pills, and saw El Pollo Loco...So we picked that up on the way home. Not super healthy, but it was good. We have money left on a gift card for Red Robin, so we will have a early dinner there tomorrow. Dennis works the 3am shift this week-end, so he will need a early dinner. We will have Mexican soon though hehe.

I wondered about the movie you saw. Usually Speilberg's movies are good, but I just read where another movie clobbered the Speilberg's movie big time money wise. Oh well, you never know what is going to happen.

What's on the agenda for tomorrow?

Yes, she was glad to see us to get fed!!!!!
The movie was cute, it was by Steven Speilburg and was called BFG, started off slow but then was funny.
I love Mexican especially the chips and salsa, but I had a dish with shrimp, chicken, and cheese, side of yellow rice and salad.. I ate too much even though I brought some of it home! Oh and refried beans! I'll sure have to walk tomorrow!!!!
So did you have Mexican tonight????

I don't like muggy. Makes it so sticky. Even we have 35% humidity, but we have a breeze. And the temps won't be real high, so I can live with it.

Hope you enjoy the movie. Oh boy. When I saw Mexican, I told Dennis let's have Mexican for dinner. We have a restaurant real close to us, and it is the best Mexican Food in the valley. Dennis agreed to go..Not sure how chipper he was about it though lol. What is your favorite Mexican dish?

Hope Zoey forgives you. Most likely if you are holding a bowl of food she will lol.

I know, Zoey does have her problems!!!!! We got our walk in this morning between showers! It was a little warm and muggy but we managed to get it done!

Those chairs look great! You all did a good job although I can see how they would be hard to do especially without good instructions.

We are going to the movies with another couple this afternoon and have dinner at our favorite Mexican restaurant. No sure what we will have!! Can't even remember the name of the movie, we are just going because the other couple want to and said it was suppose to be good!!!!!

I'm sure Alice was not happy with you two for leaving her! Zoey will be very unhappy today as we are leaving at 3:00 and probably will not get home until 7:00 and she will be late getting fed!!!!

Poor Zoey..Can't get a break. I hope tomorrow is quiet. Henley ran up and gave me a kiss today. He is so funny. We were gone from 9:30 to 2:30 today. We drove to Lake Hughes, and volunteered at "The Painted Turtle". There were about 20 people who came to help. Tomorrow camp is starting for kids who are terminal or has some type of serious health issue. They needed people to put together new chairs. It was challenge at the beginning because the directions for putting the chairs together were terrible lol. There were 2 types.




Everyone pitched in, and we put 80 chairs together. One man was a pro. He put together 6 chairs, while everyone else maybe had 3 chairs put together lol. Either he had prior experience, and is a Engineer. By the time we got home Alice gave us a lecture..How dare us leave her lol.
I am tired tonight. I did get in good walking today, but that is about it. Oh well, tomorrow I can exercise. Have a good Thurs!

Henley the Hero is so adorable and I love his smile!!!! I know he is happy the fireworks are over. People continued to set them off here in the mountains last year but thanks to a big rain tonight, no more! However, the thunder was really bad.

I didn't even think of this, and I don't know why. Australian Sheppard is a nice dog. We had a Aussie mix. They are med. size. Heidi was the sweetest dog ever.

I hope you find just the right breed for you. Zoey is our first small dog and with us traveling so much it makes it easier to take her with us. I love all breeds!!!!

Jeanne, it is nice to keep in touch with friends from years ago. We never are at a loss for conversation.

Thank you. I'm looking around on several sites and while I'm not fond of beagles, I am open to other kinds of hounds/dogs. If I don't find my first choices, I'll move to other breeds like labs, etc.

I know you have been waiting for this day. I'm excited for you. Beagles are good dogs as well. In fact, more mellow then a Coonhound. I had a Beagle mix as I was growing up. She was so easy to train. Labs are real good dogs. Might be a bit bigger then you want, but nice loyal dogs. Have you checked out this website?

I just joined this group in hopes that I can sometime soon be a hound owner/lover. I haven't had a pet in many years, but am now in a position to devote time, place, and love to a companion. I'm drawn to a medium to large hound type and hope to find a Black & Tan or a Redbone coonhound. I would want an indoor dog, but have plenty of room outside which can be fenced. I also need the exercise so long walks in the country are right outside the door. The problem may be in finding a rescue in this area of the country (Southeast/Middle Tennessee). Driving several hundred miles is not a problem, but across the country is out. I'm trying to keep checking the rescue sites I find. Any advice is welcome.

Sandi...Glad Zoey went with you that time. Watching birds is always a treat.
That's great you keep in touch with your friends. My Sister's did with a few of their friends. Especially my oldest Sis. She was the social butterfly out of all of us. My class, and it was huge, wasn't that way. I have a few I keep in touch with, but others just went their merry way, and that was that. Shame really. The weather must have been nice if you ate outside, and stayed on their porch. Sounds like a lovely day!

Janet. So glad everything is coming along with your MIL. That is a good idea to stay with your Dad. Too bad he doesn't live a bit closer to you.Then you could check on him daily. At least now when you visit with him etc. it will be a peaceful.

Your friend's garden sounds so nice. Most of our Bell Peppers and Tomatoes are struggling. We are wondering if it just got too hot, too fast. Our Corn looks good, and we have more Sunflowers then last year. (something kept eating the seedlings) Dennis picked a bit of Lettuce last night. It looked good too. Not sure if the other plant will produce though.
The last 2 years have been frustrating. For 3 or 4 yrs. we had a wonderful garden. Everything grew and produced. Last year, like I said, something starting eating the seedlings. Except for the Bell Pepper and Tomatoes. This year it is the opposite. Part of me suspects the Finches. But we might have a Kangaroo Rat. Which is really a Mouse, but it's front legs are shaped like a Kangaroo. We don't want to put poison out though. I might buy more Marigolds and put them buy the Veggies.

Sorry to hear about your Cousin's Hubby. That's a long time to battle lymphoma.

What a lovely day with your friends, Sandi!! It sounds like you and Charles were high school sweethearts. Safe travels today!!

Jeanne, I wish you had gotten more rain but I'm glad you didn't get wetter.

All is set for my stepmother to go into the nursing home on Friday. I will stay overnight with my Dad that day just to provide him some support. It will be a very tough day but he does see, with the physical and verbal abuse my stepmother rains on us, it is necessary. I think she will be better in the facility because she won't know the people. She is usually more polite then.

The Master Gardener meeting last night was held at the home of one of the members. She has a lovely garden that is all containers and raised beds. It was beautiful -- a very peaceful area.

Today we have a funeral to go to. My cousin's husband passed away. He fought lymphoma for 17 years.

I hope you two have a great day!!

Glad you got to sleep "late"!!!! Wow 4:00am!!! Also good you got some rain even though it wasn't much. We've had a little bit but could use more.

Today we went to Franklin, NC which is about 45 minutes, to visit a couple who we went to high school with, rather the husband graduated with us and was hubby's best man in our wedding. We had a wonderful time, talked on their porch while rocking and ate at a cute outside restaurant and walked around the town. Zoey had a good time on the porch watching the birds!! We didn't get home until 7:00! Tomorrow I'm going with others to the Apple Barn in Blue Ridge to get peaches. Hope they are good. Hubby's staying home with Zoey because the yard man is coming and he likes to supervise the work!

Zoey sends kisses to Henley! Hugs from me!

I actually slept until 4am today lol. I'm tired though, getting ready to go lay down. We had a bit of rain this morning. I was out taking pictures of our Sunflowers, and splat...Right on my arm. I thought a bird nailed me, then it started sprinkling nice big drops. I had to run into the house so my camera wouldn't get wet. Unfortunately, it didn't last long. I did hear thunder later in the day, but so far, no rain.

Glad you got in a nap Sandi. I thought about it, but thought I should hang in there, and just go to bed early. Give Zoey some kisses for me!

Zoey and I did take a nap today! It's thundering now but don't know if it will bring rain or not. We need it and the West VA. area is flooding and you have fires in Calif. It's good you got your walk in early! I know all about sad dog faces, we see that everytime we have to put Zoey in her crate!!!

Janet, the nursing home situation is moving along fast. I'm sure they see she needs to be in one and will keep her contained!!!

Hope you both have a good week!

Wow, the nursing home is coming along. Faster then I thought it would. Glad you Dad liked the tour. I gather they will know she tried to run away. They will keep an eye on her for sure.

We get that hot here too. Taking the dogs in the summer is hard. Alice's face when Dennis tells her she can't go. I remember Sarge looking at me with a sad face too. They don't understand it is for their best interest.

We took a 6:30 am walk again. This morning was a bit cooler. Made it so nice. The tree Dennis planted in honor of Sarge is looking sad. I told him I might plant one of my Geraniums. They can take the heat, and will do better there..I think anyway. He planted some type of Pine tree, but I don't think it is for this area. I fear this summer will fry the poor tree. Plus the soil is sandy in the area he planted it. It is right by the wash.

Hope your day has been good. I might take a nap.

The picnic was pretty much potluck although someone furnished the fried chicken. I have to splurge on that occasionally!!!!

Jeanne, you sure are waking up early at 3:30 am! No wonder your day gets started early!!

Janet, glad your time with your stepmother went well. Sure hope she adjusts to the nursing home okay. Some times that is a hard transition.

It was warm here again today. We went to a nicer Walmart that is in Murphy NC, it's not that far to go and is a pretty drive. We didn't take Zoey as it was just too hot even with leaving the a/c on in the car for her.

Hope you both have a great Sunday.

I'm glad you got out for an early walk, Jeanne. I like to do that for the dogs here in the summer. I am a morning person so, for me, it's just a matter of getting myself out before sitting down to the computer.

A picnic sounds so delightful, Sandi. A great summer activity and it sounds like you had good company.

I had a good overnight with my stepmother -- for the most part. I was joined by the stepsister who is just a year older than me. We did pretty good but still had three trying-to-run-away and one outright battle. I sure hope all goes well to have her living in a nursing home in a week's time.

The lawyer visit went well. He has some experience with the nursing home we will be using and it has been very positive. We have to re-do the POAs for Dad and we have to do some things to make improvements on how the finances will be handled. He will do the MA application. We were certainly hit with a lot of information. Afterward, I took Dad to tour the facility my stepmother will be going into. I think that went very well.

A couple of hours after I got home today, I took the dogs out to walk. That was about 3:30 pm and today has been very hot and muggy. But, when we left it was clouding up. We turned around when the thunder started but as it turned out all we had was a little thunder and then the sun came back out. Maybe storms tonight.

I'm not a morning person either. But lately I have been waking up at 3:30 am, and couldn't go back to sleep. Really messes up my schedule. However, I decided to make the most of the craziness. Walking early am in the summer is better then eve. Even by 7am it was starting to get warm. We are headed back to the 100 degrees again. When we walked in the shade it was nice, but when we hit the sun it I could feel it, and Munchie has such thick hair. I am trimming it again this week-end. His hair grows too fast! Picnics are always fun. Potluck style?

Janet hope your day goes well!!

Charles keeps our garage pretty clean, probably better than our house!!
Glad Dennis and Kathryn had a good trip and that she got a nice hat!!! I know Munchie loved his walk, you sure get out early!! I'm not an early morning person !!! It is good that Dennis is so handy around the house!!!

We had a nice picnic with a group from church at noon today, with lots of good food. Zoey and I walked this evening and it was still pretty warm even though we didn't have sun.

Janet, I agree with Jeanne and the situation with your MIL !! At least she isn't nice to the others either!! I can see where you couldn't take her a gift each visit!!

Hope you both have great weekend!
