It’s easy to get out of the routine of regular blogging. Sometimes I think – why do people want to read about the same thing all the time? But then I look back at the blogs I follow that don’t regularly blog anymore (I won’t be cruel and mention any names, but you know who you are!). Reading about other people and what their dogs are up to is a way to gain insight on things that I might be going through myself – or I might know someone with the same kind of issues. Our lives are not perfect and although I try to present everyone in a good light, there are times when I just want to scream (this week was one of those).
In a nutshell, this is what has happened in the last two months:
Mom sliced open and broke her big toe (right foot). It was 6+ weeks before the skin healed and unfortunately, the bone will remain broken (aka crushed) unless surgery is preformed. For now, I’m opting to see how far I can go without surgery.
Mom went on a trip with some other blog friends to Myrtle Beach. She had a great time and really enjoyed getting to know each of them more. Despite having a broken toe (she couldn’t get in the water!) it was a good time for relaxing.
Moby started laser therapy for his back. Our own vet didn’t have the laser equipment, so we were referred to an awesome vet down in Kingsland for the treatment. It’s an hour drive one way, but it definitely seems to be working. Moby has been for 6 treatments in the last 2 months. Our regular vet recently got the laser, so we’re going to start treatment there today.
Mom and Dad went on a camping trip and rented a Little Guy (teardrop trailer). Boney went to stay with Grandma and Papa while Moby had a new sitter, Sienna, come stay with him. He first met Sienna just before mom broke her toe – which worked out perfectly because Sienna came to walk him while mom couldn’t. Moby loves Sienna – she takes him for walks, plays stick, cuddles and gives lots of treats!
Mom now works from home. Moby and Boney spend most of the day snoozing in the home office, but we take breaks on the new side deck that dad built for us – complete with a railing and gate! We can watch the neighbors go by and try not to bark too much.
Tomorrow, Boney will tell you about a new piece of furniture in our house that he thinks was made just for him…
