Sadie Sick???

I don't know if I mentioned it or not but Sadie is a rescue dog. She was chained outside and almost starved to death. When she was picked up by animal control she was 44 lbs (almost 30 lbs underweight). They weren't sure she would live through the night. But she did. She went into weimaraner puppy foster care for 2 months and stayed with a friend of mine for a couple of weeks during that time. That is how I ended up with her. She is a wonderful dog, with the exception that she is very food focused. However, the past two days she hasn't eaten anything. I think she has an upset stomach. She has only done this one other time in the past 6 years that she has been with me. So food in her dog bowl is a rare sight. She finally ate around 8p tonight.
She wasn't quite sick enough to not play with her toys. She doesn't like "toys" as much as she likes dead stuff animal carcasses. They were all over the living room floor when I got home. Silly, goofy adorable dog!
Cowboy hand dug up the flower bed tonight. He was a sweaty mess. I just sat around and watched him. I included the picture so you all could take note of his hankie under his hat. Don't you just love it!

I went to see the hottie eye doctor. They are going to do surgery on both of my eyes in two weeks. They will not be doing Lasik again but PRK. It sounds like it's a little more intense and I'll have to the hottie eye doctor 4 times that week. My last surgery went well so I'm anticipating the same thing again. Can't wait to have sharper vision again.

Gotta get to bed. Cowboy said he's dragging me out of bed at 6a to go garage selling. We'll see about that.

Is Cowboy picking his nose in that picture???

Sounds like you have a positive attitude about the surgery. I am sure it will all work out just fine and you will have perfect vision again.

Hope Sadie is feeling better soon. Maybe it's the heat.

Oh, I hope Sadie is OK. Isn't it scary when our non-verbal babies are "normal"? Tell her Ali and China send their best. No, wait, she was scared of them! Just give her a hug from me!

Good luck with the surgery. I'm such a chicken about eye surgery, so I admire you for doing this. I know, I know, my daughter had Lasek and loves it. I'm not squeamish about much, but that's one. Besides, at my age bifocals are a must, and I wasn't thrilled with the uni-vision contacts, so I will just hang in there with contact and reading glasses or my bifocals. I'm old. I can do that. :D

I'm not even going to ask about Cowboy after Caroline's remark. tsk. Shame on you, Caroline!

wait .... is he??? OMG!!!

Caroline--He's not picking his nose, only does that in the privacy of our home.

Lynilu-Sadie is feeling better and I'm a little anxious about having my eyes done again. I tried mono vision for a couple of days but didn't like it. I'll let you know how it turns out.

I hope Sadie isn't sick but I must say I love her doggie bowls.
Awwww how wonderful you rescued her. I can't imagine anybody mistreating a dog or cat - makes my blood BOIL.

Good luck on the surgery. We will be surgery sisters :)
