Paws on Top!

I feel like today was one day where I just went go-go-go. Tomorrow is looking the same. Ugh.

Today I woke up, emailed a friend, and then took Mike the dog to the vet. His Glaucoma is not under control right now, so we're going to take a very aggressive method of treating it and hopefully this will start to come down. I feel very bad for him, it's not like he can tell us that he's in pain, so I feel like I really need to advocate for him. I really want to do everything that I can to avoid having to enunculate the eye. Poor guy. One of the things that I did do that I know he likes is I found these cool dog treats where you can put a pill into the center of them, and then you pinch it closed and the dog willingly eats the pill! There's no spitting out of the pill! It's like a miracle. I am glad that he gets something that's tasty,and the pill goes into the dog.

Molly is Molly. How can a yellow lab named Molly not be the most effervescent creature on this planet? She makes me laugh at least once a day. It's pretty nifty. She's allergic to bug bites and whenever she goes outside she sits down in one spot on the lawn, and I recently looked at the spot and saw ants all over it. So we bought some anti-itch spray a couple weeks ago, and it seems to be working well. Again, I hate it when the dogs are hurting or are uncomfortable.

I'll leave you with a little game we like to play.

It's called Paws on Top.

First I put my hand on Molly's paw, then she pulls her paw out from underneath, and puts it on my hand. The game is on. It involves lots of long gazes away from the field of play for stealth paw placing. It always makes me laugh.

So, without further ado. I leave you with a little Paws On Top action.
