Our weekend camping trip has been delayed. The older of our two dogs and the ruler of the home has taken ill. She woke up Monday morning with a swollen neck and very lethargic. After a 500$ vet bill, some antibiotics, pain pills and draining of the fluid around her neck she is home and seems to be feeling a little better. Her neck is still swollen and she is still very listless so we are not to thrilled about packing up the car and traveling 6 hours. It would not be very fair to her and I would hate to have her away from medical care should the need arise. Now I have 6 days off and don't know quite what to do with my self. Isn't that a shame!!!


  1. how about I come for visit?? or you come here?

  2. Oh..cute little Penny..she looks EXACTELY like my doggie, Butterscotch...only she is white and Buddy is red....we call him Buddy....and he is the LOVE OF MY LIFE.....

    We are sending love and get well wishes to Penny...

    Take Care....more later

    Kary and Buddy

  3. Poor puppy - sending get well wishes!! Why don't you make another poetry piece ? I have been so wanting to see another!

  4. Our pets are so much a part of our lives. I often think about how many times in the day I interact with Donnie, our Manchester Terrier, and wonder what I would do with all of those moments if I didn't have him. He just a bundle of energy, joy, and a big lump in the bed ... because he likes to sleep totally under the covers!

  5. I hope Penny is better today.
    She is a beauty.


  6. How in the heck did I miss this post!?!? I am glad I already read that Penny-Penny is doing better already. It's such a scare when our furry friends are ailing! Hope all is well!! Hugs, Silke
