One Dog

For those of you that read this blog (handful) you probably are wondering why I haven't mentioned Prim. I've debated saying anything at all not knowing what feedback I'd get from the militant dog people out there. Short story is we decided to return Prim to the breeder. We loved Prim with all our heart and it was a very difficult thing for us to do. Prim was about as rock solid puppy as you will ever find however, we felt she had an issue that we just could not get past. I'm not going to go into detail about this issue but we felt it was serious enough to take the action we took. Prim is now in a good home and I'm sure doing great.
Gypsy enjoyed playing with Prim but has reverted to being a single dog just fine.
At least I don't have to share Dino!!!

Sunday was a bit cooler out than it was earlier in the week but we managed to have a Poodle Day in the backyard. Gypsy still plays like a puppy, although the gun shots we could hear from the gun club stressed her out some. If the wind is blowing in the right direction we can clearly hear the gun shots. Some hunting dog she is...
By the dinner time she was ready for a nap. She can't party like she used to.

Zoe on the Mend

Zoe gave us a scare with the mass on her bladder last week. She has been on the mend and acting just about normal again.
What is normal for a cat???
That is true Gyp, nothing normal about most cats. Sandi set up a little hospital bed for Zoe while she was not feeling very well and the other cats felt like she needed some company. When one of the cats is not 100% the others can sense something is going on.

Cat Sunday

The Red Boys are on the lookout for "No Bells" our neighbor.

Zo Zo Scare

Zoe gave us a scare this past week. Sandi noticed she was acting strange over last weekend. Zoe started going into the box often. Having multiple cats we are used to dealing with infections and things but this seemed different. Then Sandi noticed blood in Zo Zo's urine. Not a little bit of blood but a lot. Off to the vet they go and after an xray, we're told that she had a mass on her bladder. Sandi was really upset. We were to bring Zoe in the next morning and they were going to operate on her to check out what was going on with the mass. We assumed the worse and had a difficult night, thinking it was the last night we'd have with our Black kitten. Sandi didn't sleep a wink that night. When I left for work the next morning I thought it would be the last time I'd see Zoe. Sandi dropped Zoe off and was a wreck. Our vet's office had a visiting vet in house that morning that could do ultra sounds. Zoe wasn't scheduled for an ultra sound but they did one anyway and determined that she had a bad infection. We are treating her now and she seems to be on the mend.
Sandi didn't sleep much for a few days. Zoe is her special cat.

One Year Ago

This was one year ago, last March. We had a big snow and Gypsy loved playing in the field behind our house. This year we hit 80....
I grilled out for the first time this year.

Cat Sunday

Here is a picture of Zoe that has been touched up using the "super photo" app. Zoe is all about Sandi and could care less about anything else. The boys try to play with her from time to time but Zoe wants nothing to do with them.

Hanging On

Sandi decorated a little "Charlie Brown" tree this year for Christmas and decided to keep it up. It is hanging on despite the hurricane force winds that we've seen. I think it adds a festive air to the backyard.
