We are all happy to report that the Man is all better. He was back to work last week, he is eating like normal. He is a little fatigued by the end of the day, but overall he is all better.
Hailey has had a very good week. We had some serious rain and while she was nervous (and couldn't settle and kept us up a lot of Thursday night), when she was alone, no destruction!
Thank you all for the Mother's Day wishes and Aunt C says thank you for all the birthday and anniversary wishes. I love that picture of Aunt C and Lee too, it shows how much Lee loves her Aunt C.
One thing people may not know about me, is I am a planner. I like things to go according to my plan A, B, or C (I usually have many plans to help plan for the unexpected). I CAN roll with things that are unexpected, but I hate it. Half the stress for me when the Man was sick, wasn't his health (although I was concerned), it was my week not going as planned LOL!
We are also impressed at how well the cats and dogs get along. The cats have been tolerating dogs of some sort for about 12 years (they have had some practice).
One of the biggest drawbacks to loving, is that we have to learn to say goodbye. The scars on our hearts, remind us of how lucky we were to love so deeply.
We got Mail
For those of you who may be interested in learning more about K9 Kelp (it is a Canadian company), you can visit their site at: http://www.k9kelp.ca. We have noticed some bugs the last few days, so will be able to talk about how it works as an insect repellant. It does seem to be doing a nice job at keeping the dog smell sound down now that it is very wet out. I am also happy to report that putting it on the dogs is going much better, they don't love it, but don't look terrified!
A Comfy Nap
Lee sleeps like this a lot, so it must be comfy. I think she likes it because she hardly has to move if she hears things on the TV that need to be checked out.
The Beach is Back
The lake is still very, very cold, but that doesn't bother Phod. Hailey is not a swimmer, she will go in to her "knees" and she loves to snap at the waves. Lady and Man were very proud of us for our polite manners with the neighbours. We don't see many dogs in our daily lives, so we don't get a lot of practice being social.
We don't like the litter
The lesson is that change is not good and I need to listen to my old cats. Given the amount of $ I spend on extras for the dogs, buying more expensive litter for the cats is within the budget (and isn't the place to go cheep!)
Have a great weekend!
