Lazy Summer Dayz..

Not a whole lot to update. Being unemployed is allowing me more time with my CJ (see above), and I'm not convinced that he's as grateful for it as I am. When I ride, he has to work properly....when students ride, he just has to behave. I love the dude, though. He's good for my soul. (See how short my hair is? And, that's a couple of months of kidding)

Sunshine, my beautiful old dog, had to go to the vet today for some eye trouble. I noticed yesterday afternoon that they were puffy and had some pus going on. Gave her a benadryl to see if that would knock it out. Well, it knocked HER out, and she slept good last night, but woke up this morning with even more swelling. So, off to the vet we went. $100 later, she has some eye drops for conjuctivitis. Goofy mutt must've stuck her nose in some weed that is pollenating or something. Always somethin..

I'm getting a new kitty today. We have one already, a small female that our upstairs neighbors didn't want when we moved here...last of her litter. She's a total brat, but we love her. My dog, Sunshine, thinks Takashi is HER kitty. Our new kitty is a Norwegian Forest, and is 6 years old already. I'm getting her from a friend who works at a vet clinic. Poor thing was dropped off to be euthed. A doctor and his wife had owned her since a kitten,. She had stopped using her litterbox and they were selling their home. They said she wouldn't be able to adjust to new owners so they wanted her put down. They wouldn't take her to a no-kill shelter, either. So, the clinic had less than two hours to find her a home. She'll be with me. :) As if I need more problems, huh?

Not a cloud in the sky today, though, and I'm blessed to have food in my fridge, a roof over my head, and some great friends. We'll see what tomorrow brings...

Happy Trails, All!

  1. Every day is a blessing.
    Maybe the new cat could be a barn cat, that way the litterbox thing wouldn't be an issue.
    Yay for more time in the saddle- it's good for the soul.
