Worked hard today and I'm pretty spent. Hubby's still sick, he missed all the fun this weekend (with the new niece and the snow...) due to a nasty cold. Poor guy then sank further into mucoid hell today while staying home from work so as not to share the nasty amoebas with his work family. I don't want them either, I'm praying to the Goddess "Immuna" that I be spared and able to continue feeling my normal level of exhausted, achy and unable to breath that I usually do. It would help if I stopped inhaling sweets, I think then my odds of staving off the sickness would improve. Here's a little cheering up for my sweetie... remember his Easter basket goodies that I was too tired to tell you about?
Well, we've finally gotten around to using the toilet paper and I have to say it was the best "way too much money for just a joke" present I've purchased in a long time. I think we both laugh every time we walk in there and the best part is, it's really rough and scratchy and horrible for blowing your nose... it's not even good enough to blow your nose in!!! I may need to go order the Hillary TP for Father's day and give it to him from "the boys." (Honey, you did NOT hear that.)
Here's some picks of Lucca having that bath I mentioned, he hates baths. I'm having a terrible time keeping his eye free of stains lately, but at least we got rid of the mud from Saturday's park debacle. Lucca had gone around a corner and out of sight on the trails there and when he returned he was totally covered in mud. The markings on his head no longer looked divided, just one big dark blob across his forehead. Whatever he did to coat himself in lava water, I'm sure it was fun, but I didn't want it in my bed anymore.
Wishing for a heater.
Now Lucca has his white spots back and he can cuddle up for the night with his sick daddy.
7 year old Boston Terrier/French Bulldog with some insanely irritating Pug thrown in for good measure. Lucca is a champion sleeper, forever hungry and cares very little about normal dog passions. He is a connoisseur of fine linens, a scanvenger of tasty bits and can sing like nobody's business. Watch out, he'll sing you a song you can't get out of your head.
Bosley, 1+ year old Boxer, NWBR Alumni
Bozzerelli is our only "from scratch" Boxer pup and what a treat he has been! After so many rescue dogs who required a great deal of "rehab," raising a puppy and getting every bit of what we put into him has been a joy. He's a teenager now and crazy about days spent with loads of dog park friends or a good game of fetch. Bosley was destined for service work of some kind, but his brother Zeus is showing him up temperamentally, and may take that role.
Zeus, 1+ year old Mixer, NWBR Alumni
Zeusybear Thompsen is the newest addition to the pack and he has filled some gaps we didn't even know existed! Zeus was a shelter surrender that we weren't allowed to evaluate before receiving into the rescue. He was presumed to have mange, had been found as a stray and was a death row pup. His luck turned around when volunteers swooped him up and transported him to H2K9, after several months of much needed health care and a stint on the adoptable list, we just couldn't let him go. Zeus and Boz are the best of brothers and their Tweedleness is infectious.
