The little guy who could....

Wednesday, March 06, 2013

Well, I've been really sick since the beginning of January. I haven't gained any weight and I have been losing some. However, I have no energy and can't breathe well enough to do anything.

I am slowly getting better after antibiotics and steroids and two trips to the ER in one night. And as I am patiently waiting to recover....I have a lot to look forward too.

I'm pretty sure I told you about Barney.....

Barney is my DH's new puppy. The dog I never wanted......

I have never considered myself a dog person....I thought maybe someday I'll have a cat...

Well, DH has been working a lot out of town so Barney and I have totally bonded. I love that little guy. I can't wait for the weather to turn nice so we can go walking together. He is going to help make me healthy...I know it.

Already I spend hours on the floor playing tug of war with him....no easy feat to get up off the floor mind you!!! But he is sooo worth it. And he is so smart!

He has so much personality....who knew? I sure didn't...can't wait to share more with you....but Barney wants to play...and I'm a sucker for those big eyes!!

    I sure hope you feel better asap! So many bugs going around and it just seems like they have to come back for a second and third visit. :(

    Keri...your pup is so darn cute. Who could not fall in love with him. I have always been a horse, then dog person. I am not much for cats and yet I have one that is now almost 16. I keep reminding her she is on her second round of nine lives and better start behaving. She still tears my house up at night. :)
