Wouldn't it be nice if dogs came with a "slow" switch. They could just implant it after a surgery and it could dissolve in a certain number of days. That and a forehead thermometer for dogs would make two fine inventions.

I hope the surgery helps Java. It sounds like squirrels can't rest easy during her recovery. They should continue to be afraid...very afraid.

Charlie's feet are looking better all the time. He must have nearly a week of antibiotics left so he has even more time to get them in tip top shape.

Molly has her yearly exam tomorrow. When Charlie has an appointment, we take Molly with because we are afraid she would destroy the house if we took Charlie and not her too. When Molly has an appointment, she gets to go alone. I would never subject Charlie to any unnecessary time at his least favorite place. He'll get to stay home and enjoy a peaceful nap.

Hi all. How is Charlie doing? So frustrating dealing with red irritated feet. Not like you can tell him don't walk around. I hope he is better. Finding a vet that is licensed for house calls is not easy. Hope fully you won't need that service for a long time. Good to be prepared though. I am just glad that Spring is finely here. Java, my 11 years old had surgery to remove the shoulder assembly of the leg that was amputated 3 1/2 years ago. He runs at top speed and occasionally crashes into the grass in his quest for total squirrel eradication. This resulted in a "rug burn" irritation at the bone end that wouldn't clear up. I will be removing the 38 staples in a few days. Right now he looks a lot like Frankenstein! And he STILL wants to run! The excitement never ends! Wishing everyone a peaceful Sunday.

You know, I noticed Henley slipping more then usual on our tile floors. Sarge had spinal problems towards the end. I hope Henley doesn't have the same thing. Hugs for Charlie.
It is so hard watching them age.

Happy Mother's Day!!

Charlie walked with us this morning but fell twice. I am not really sure what happened either time. The first time it was around a stick and the second time it was around one of those flags companies put up to mark an underground cable. I'm not sure if they caused his fall though. My big concern is that he had so much trouble getting up. I had to go over to help him lift his back end BUT I barely assisted. So I don't know what to think.

Charlie had his feet recheck yesterday at the vet. Still some redness and a bit of swelling by the toes so he's back on antibiotics for another 2 weeks. Charlie has needed a month of antibiotics to clear his feet in the past so I wasn't really surprised.

We got some welcome news at the vet too. This practice has now started to do home euthanizing. I had asked about this awhile back because I just hate the thought that Charlie will have to go some place that clearly stresses him out when it is his time. That is not how I want him to spend his final moments. We were told the vet would be willing to come out to the car which made it a little better. We transport our animals to a place where they cremate so that would work for us. BUT having it happen at home is so much better. I've never felt so adamant about that for our other animals but Charlie gets so anxious. Hope not to have that decision come for a long time yet but it's nice to have a plan.

Thanks for asking Jeanne. I seem to be hurting a lot since PT yesterday. The pain isn't always in the same spot. After PT it was my calves, especially left. Later in the day it was my lower back. Today it is more my thighs though my back is very stiff. The PT has given me no activity restrictions so I continue as usual. She and I will have to talk about all the pain when I see her tomorrow morning.

How are you doing?

Charlie walked again today!! He's getting to be a regular. Tomorrow he goes for the recheck on his feet. The antibiotics were done yesterday but his feet still look a little red and some toes look swollen. I predict more antibiotics but at least he is lots and lots better.

Oh dear. That's too bad. It could be arthritis related, or maybe a pinch nerve due to arthritis.

No, it isn't a pulled muscle. This has been going on since I had influenza at the beginning of March. My legs feel like the muscles have clenched and won't let go. The doctor had me checked for Lyme's and did a total tick panel but that was all normal. The x-ray showed severe arthritis in my lower back. I'm not sure that's what is doing this but I have four weeks in PT to see if I can get better. So far I've been there once and do see a small, small improvement but it's a start!!

Charlie walked again this morning. He is getting to be a regular but I suppose it's partly due to the weather. Sunny and cool. His favorite.

I have a lot of trouble walking and limp along most of the time. I have discovered over the last two days that I can walk longer and not feel any worse. Molly is so good about going my pace. Charlie only goes one pace and it is just a little too fast for me right now. At least he stops frequently. He is a boy after all.

I know. It's the same with Henley's ears. I try to stay on top of that too, but on days I am real busy, I forget. It's hard when they can get a infection in nothing flat.

I tried booties on him but that was a big no go. Apparently he doesn't think he needs them. I can just hear him. "I've spent 10 years, 70 to you missie, without those things on my feet and I am not going to start now." LOL I try to get his feet cleaned after every outside excursion. I'm not perfect but I do what I can.

Walked both dogs this morning. It's harder for me now to walk them at the same time and I was limping by the time I got home. At least it's a nice day if maybe a bit on the cool side. Having the sun always makes things seem better.

Charlie's paws are looking pretty good now but not healed. I suspect he'll need another round of antibiotics.

Looks like we will have some sun today. It's still a bit cool here. Charlie has already gone to bed with DH so he's probably going to skip the walk this morning. LOL

That was an interesting article!! The vet we saw this last week suggested we start bathing Charlie as often as possible. We use a special shampoo for him but she said even if we didn't want to give a complete bath, just rinsing or wiping him down with a wash cloth would be helpful. Pollen settles on them and then they lick so they are absorbing it, inhaling it and ingesting it. No wonder it's such a problem.

I was thinking the vinegar/water combo might be nice to use when doing the washcloth thing.

We also doubled Charlie's fish oil pills. We had been giving two a day so now it's four. For a short time we are also doubling his dose of Apoquel.

He's on a special diet but I think that's as much for his sensitive stomach as anything else.

I've never heard of calendula. I'll have to check into that.

As you can see, we do a lot to help Charlie's allergies and I often feel I'm winning the battle but, then, once in awhile I lose. I'm going to keep fighting with all I can!!

I am a morning person. I am usually up at 5:00 give or take an hour. I don't walk in the dark anymore though so the dog(s) and I have to wait till daybreak to get out.

Charlie went to the vet on Tuesday. I came home from the Clinic and discovered his back feet were huge -- so swollen. They must have really been hurting. He's on antibiotics for two weeks and I am very impressed with his progress. His left foot looks back to normal but I think he still has some swelling I his right foot. It is smaller though. He's even back to wanting to walk. Good sign.

That trip to the vet is the first time in a long time since Charlie has been in the car. DH wanted to go so that meant taking the SUV. Charlie puts his front feet up and someone hefts him up the rest of the way. He has been able to jump out okay but this time he fell both at the vet and at home. I got on line and ordered a foldable ramp. We used steps with the last dogs and they did great with them but can't seem to teach these two to use them. So, the ramp it is. Hope it works well.

Cool and windy here today. There's snow in Minnesota but I think it will track more north than east so we are unlikely to get it. No complaints from me!!

I'm not a morning person either. Tomorrow I have to get up at 6am so I can let Huck out and walk him. Only other time I get up that early, is when I want pictures of the sunrise. I go up there tonight, and I am going to spend a few hours with Huck. I have missed him! He doesn't jump on me for the most part. When he does, he is very gentle. Not much going on here either. I did get a plant transplanted. 2 more to go!

Enjoy your time pet sitting!!

We had another beautiful day yesterday and looks like another great one today. Then it will rain most of the week. Hopefully they won't be all day rains!!

I hope it works but I also hope you don't have to try it real soon. Gentle rains are okay but not those storms.

We all enjoyed time outside today. It is a beautiful day!!

Thanks, I have just ordered a Thundershirt and one of their raincoats. Lucy hates having to go out in the rain. She will hold it as long as she can. I just don't understand why she is bothered sometimes and not others. Must be bariatric pressure or something.

Henley is the only dog we have had that fears loud noises. Not only thunder, but loud trucks and buses (they have air brakes). Some people say the Thundershirt works. I haven't bought one because it is pretty pricey for a large dog. Henley is 99 pds., and if the shirt didn't work, then we would be out money. He prefers going to his crate when we have bad thunder.

Hoping all the pups are feeling better.

Are your hounds bothered by storms? I have had Lucy (Redbone) for about nine months and she had only shown fear of storms in the last couple of months. She is usually fine but twice, she has gone to a dark corner hallway and has been visibly upset. She makes no sound, but obviously is afraid. Granted, both times have been real thunder boomers with lots of lightening.

Now, I have to go clean Charlie's paws. It'll be a vet visit soon I think.

Henley isn't shaking his head, but I noticed they are dirty. Have to stay on top of that, or they will get bad. Boxer puppies are so cute. I'm glad for your Niece.

Hope you have a safe trip Sandi, and Zoey does well. She will be hungry when you get home!

I hope so too Jeanne. How are Henley's ears looking now?

We had a good Easter. One of my nieces got a Boxer puppy and brought it over to show him off. What a cutie!! And such a mellow pup.

All appetites are good here too. Charlie gave us a bit of a scare last week. He wasn't much interested in eating for a couple of days. Maybe he didn't feel the greatest and is back to normal now.

How can it be that I can sit with my back to Charlie and hear him licking and then when I turn around he's just looking at me like, "What, Mom??" He is talented, that's for sure. LOL

Alice isn't scratching as much. Dennis gave her another bath with the oatmeal shampoo. Henley seems to have a stuffy nose, and a bit wet. Not runny, but wet. So i gather he has a bit of a cold.
Otherwise he seems fine though. Nothing wrong with his appetite.

LOL Jeanne, that is so funny!!

Sandi, It is good to hear Zoey does well on the Royal Canin food. The Iams has been very good for Charlie. We had tried another allergy one which made Charlie poop less but it was so very runny. So far, so good but we are only at 75% old food and 25% new food right now.

Nice walk with Molly this morning. It's frosty but not too bad once the sun is up. Rain later today.

Zoey is on Royal Canin and has been for a few years. She eats the one for allergies and weight control and does well on it. Hopefully Charlie will too.

SQUIRRELS!! I refer to the park by the zoo here as "Squirrel City." There are so many and our labs have loved to chase them. Maggie, the lab before Molly, used to chase swallows too. I think she really thought she could catch them and when she chased and missed, she'd let out a bark. I think she was swearing.

Charlie has a new foot. Apparently Royal Canin bought Iams and that's who we were getting his sensitive skin food from. We have a few days of transition first though and I hope we have enough of the old food to do it right.

No snow here last night. No complaints from me about that. It will be cold though and I already washed up all the winter coats so I am just going to have to wear lots of layers. Molly has her beautiful fur coat and Charlie can wear his coat if he chooses to go this morning.

Have a great day!!

Thursday night we had snow, By Friday afternoon most of it had melted. Saturday was VERY windy but sunny. Sunday was bright and sunny. No jacket required today because it is sunny and mild. Time to come out of hibernation because Winter MAY be over!!??! I am obsessed with the weather. Checking before we go so we are dressed in the appropriate items to enjoy our walks. Getting caught far from home and freezing is not fun. Three almost warm days give me hope! Java has gone all wild and crazy with the nice weather too! SQUIRRELS!! The season has officially begun! Cheers!

Stormy night last night but I think they are done now. Today we'll have falling temps and snow overnight. Spring!!

I put Charlie to bed with DH about an hour ago so he won't be walking this morning. It'll just be Molly and I. I'm up very early so maybe we'll go very early.

We had a lovely day yesterday even if it was a bit windy. After the gardening seminar, my friend and I visited the humane society in that town. Very nice facility but it's hard to see the dogs. I would have liked to take the lab/shepherd mix home but I don't think Molly could handle another animal taking attention away from her.

We had a bit of rain last night/early morning. Only 1/8 of a inch, but I will take it. They didn't have that predicted. In fact clouds are moving in again, so I am wondering if we will get more. Hope so. Wish it wasn't windy though.

Hi everyone, yes we are safely through the storms and high winds. This week has been awful here in the mountains but today is picture perfect. Glad to hear you all are okay too.

Have a wonderful Saturday!

It is true. Charlie would do anything for food.

Up early for the gardening seminar today. It is only the morning but I want to at least walk Molly before hand. So I suppose I should step away from the computer and get a move on.

Have a good day!!

You're making me drool thinking about strawberries. I can't wait for all the summer fruits and the farmers' markets.

I hope Sandi is safe too. We are having pleasant weather. Sometimes sun, sometimes not but it is warming. It's nice to see green stuff poking up out of the ground.

Maybe Charlie IS trying to keep his youthful figure. He might need to stop eating everything that isn't nailed down. Tonight I was bagging chex mix to take to a seminar tomorrow and occasionally a piece would fall to the floor. Charlie stood sentry so he could clean the floors asap. Now, I wonder if I could teach him to do windows. LOL

Go Charlie. Maybe it is because he is a star! I see where the weather is rough in certain areas. We are warm here. Dennis came home with 2 more Strawberry plants. I'm drooling thinking about eating Strawberries.

Sandi, hope you are safe!

I envy Dennis' exercise. I am ready and willing to garden but we are still too cold at night. Cloudy and cool today but no rain here. Tomorrow is supposed to be very windy. I'll have to check the wind direction before I take the dogs.

Charlie walked twice today!!

Sure looks like Dennis is getting his exercise!!! Hopefully you will get some rain.

It's storming here again today, we just went through this Monday. I was on the way to get my walk this morning in it started to thunder so had to turn back. Hopefully it will clear up later and I can go. Got lots of steps yesterday at least!!!

Pollen is pretty bad here as well. Hopefully we will get rain on Saturday. We planted another Tomato, and Bell Pepper plant. We bought 6 Strawberry plants. Dennis planted Sunflower Seeds today as well. He is getting in his workout.

We are in the mountains for a couple of weeks and the pollen has started here but today it is raining all day so hopefully that will help. Sure hoping most of it is gone in Tallahassee by the time we get back.

That Charlie is just adorable!!!!

It is supposed to rain here today too but Molly and I got out before the rain. She encountered a guy from the electric company who had a device that helped him find the underground line. She was very nervous about that and even barked at the guy. I think she just didn't have any idea of what it was and she fashions herself my bodyguard. We both survived the incident. LOL

Charlie chose to stay in bed wit DH. He is so smart!!

I do believe the pollens are worse this year (thus the itching), because I have been itching and having to take allergy pills and I really haven't been bothered the last couple of years. Here we have rain and I'm waiting to see if it lets up a bit to take Lucy out. She hates rain and won't go. This may be the day we see just how long she can hold it.

That is a nice picture of Charlie. Alice is itching lately. She has never battled that before. I wish I knew why, unless it is just getting old. She turned 12 in Jan.

LOL!! Janet, I'm now in the mountains for a couple of weeks so will have to wait to figure out the bush question!!!!

The pollen isn't as bad up here as it was in Tallahassee but there will be more to come.
Sorry about Charlie's paw problem! Zoey is still itchy up here too but not as bad!

All's well here except that Charlie seems to be working on a paw problem. Spring is starting to show around here and so are the allergies.

Isn't it funny how alike but different all our pups are??? They are such fun. Zoey would walk as long as I would, she loves being outside as long as it isn't raining. We were suppose to get rain last night and today but so far not a drop and we sure need it.

Jeanne, my neighbor's bush has a bunch of leaves on it but will have to look closer to see anything else.
We will be going to our cabin next Thursday until the Tuesday after Easter to check on things, hopefully everything is okay.

Hope you all are having a great weekend.

I had to laugh at your description of Lucy on the walk. Charlie is the exact opposite. He's good on the leash as we go away from the house but on the way home, he is in a hurry.

We have a lovely soft rain here today. It started last night with a minute or two of hard rain, then settled down. Just the right kind to water all the plants.

With the help of my friends and their truck, I got my new rug home and it is now unrolled out in the garage. I have the carpet cleaner coming on Tuesday afternoon. He will either clean the three rugs here or take them to his shop and then return them.

I got two wall ornaments hung, three new pillows for the couch, a new white comforter and shams for my bed and a new table runner for the kitchen table. I still need a few Spring/Easter decorations. Slowly, one step at a time, I am making a few changes around the house.

On our walks, Lucy starts out in a hurry to get wherever she wants to go, but when we turn around and start home, she get slower and slower.

More rain today. Hopefully the sun will shine sometime this week. But I am loving the warmer temps. Charlie is too. He goes on all our walks now. He does try to cut them short though. Every time there is a choice in direction, Charlie wants to choose the one that goes toward home. Smart boy.

Oh Molly lol. Maybe she is getting old and grumpy. Munchie fusses with Henley sometimes. Part of it is jealousy, the other part is Munchie doesn't like Henley's nose. They are just like kids!

Maybe I can try and get a pic of the Lantana Sandi if you can't see the stickery part on your friend's Lantana. Has her shrub filled out yet?

That is funny Janet, I can't imagine taking Zoey to church with us! She wouldn't lay down she would want to greet everyone!!!!! I'm sure Molly was jealous of the other pup!

I walked our neighborhood today and talked with a man who has a Jack Russell and he says his dog doesn't like any other dogs. At least Zoey is friendly with a few!!!

Jeanne, I'll have to look at my neighbor's lantana to see if it has those fuzzy things on it!!!

We are suppose to get rain tonight, hope so!

Rainy weekend here. Perfect weekend for paperwork.

We had a visitors today and one of them was a border collie. A wonderful dog!! His name is Coal and he is owned by the mother of a friend. She takes the dog everywhere including church. The dog hobnobs before services and sits at her owner's feet once services start. Recently, a lady in front of them fell asleep and Coal went over and nudged the lady's elbow until she woke up. LOL

Molly tried to pick a fight with Coal. I think it was jealousy. She stopped when we said but still, we were totally taken by surprise at our sweet little girl. Not so sweet today.

Raining all weekend here. I don't mind too much because little tiny green shoots are starting to peak up from the cold ground. Soon we will have tulips and daffodils to add some colors to the grey remains of Winter. I have to chuckle that Java doesn't like wet weather. Whippets are a breed from northern England and I 'm sure they have lots of rain there. Warm coats for us today. Enjoy the weekend!

Glad it is only rain too Janet. I have found that the older our dogs get, the heavier they sleep. I suspect Alice hearing isn't that good, but Henley's hearing is fine, but he sleeps like a log anymore lol.

Sandi, not sure how to describe the limbs on the shurb. It's not big stickers, they are very tiny and fine. Almost fuzzy like. Does that make sense?

Jeanne you have the most beautiful places to drive and take pictures. I haven't had any Lantana in years but don't remember any stickers, guess I've just forgotten!! We are suppose to get rain tomorrow evening and Sunday. We are planning more yard work tomorrow but will hope for rain.

Janet, glad you all were ok during the thunder storms and that the pups did good even those Molly wasn't happy!!!

Have a great Saturday!!

Hope you get some rain Sandi but preferably not storms.

Your drive sounds nice Jeanne.

We had rain last night. A very loud storm. I wasn't woken by the storm but only because I didn't sleep well and was already awake. Molly was a bit nervous about the thunder but Charlie wasn't bothered. He hasn't been too much over the years but we suspect his hearing is declining.

I'm just glad the precipitation is rain. Further north of us they are having ice. We'll stay warm enough to avoid that. Hooray!!

Today was sunny, but still on the cool side. I had to cut back my Lantana again. The leaves that are sprouting are mostly down at the bottom of the shrub. So I just cut back the bare limbs to where I saw new growth. I didn't have to cut that much back last year. Plus this year the limbs are stickery. No thorns, just tiny stickers on the limbs. Only way I can describe it. Ouch!
We took Munchie and Alice for a drive late afternoon. Looking for wild flowers. We didn't see any in Leona Valley, but a lot have popped up by the Poppy Reserve. The flowers were closed due to the wind, so we will have to go back soon for pictures. It was a nice drive though.

Today has been much cooler after being in the high 80's yesterday. Stay safe in those storms!!!!!

It looks like a few more storms are headed your way. Coming from the West Coast yet.
I too hope you only get rain. Today is sunny, but still a cool breeze. So different from last year.

That sounds like quite the storm Jeanne. Glad Henley handled it okay but poor Munchie!!

Still cold here and no more sun for several days according to the forecast. Hopefully the temp will be high enough to have rain instead of snow. I'm ready to be done with snow. All's quiet in the house for now -- at least till I get ready for the morning walk.

Have a good day!!

We had a couple of big booms (thunder). Poor Munchie , he didn't leave my side. Henley actually did ok this time. Some of the hail was a good size.

They just put us under a storm alert. Funny because 30 mins. ago it was sunny. If I lived in the Midwest I would be worried lol.
