It seems like we have been making the trip to Uvalde just about every day. We keep getting suggestions about what we need for Rusty, so off we go again. We also needed to get some more groceries, and I needed to get stuff to fix for Christmas dinner. We are going to spend a quiet day at home, probably in our jammies or sweats. We will have to be decent for our walks with Rusty, but most of the time we three will be watching movies, eating fattening foods, and just being lazy in general.
Something I never realized before; how many times, in a day, you have to wash your hands, when you have a puppy. I am always doing something with him, or for him and then washing my hands before I do something else. The training is still coming along pretty good.
A few days ago I had welcomed Jenny as a follower, but didn’t have the address to her site, so Retired Rod was very gracious, and sent it to me. Thank you Rod. It is much appreciated. If you click on her name or Rods, it will take you to their sites.
It has been raining and/or overcast for the last few days here. It did rain enough to wet the ground, but just. It has been more like a mist than a rain, and the fog seems to be hanging on the top of the hills, here in Hill Country. I took a couple of pictures to share with you. This is a very pretty part of Texas, and we do intend to get out and do some scooting around after the first of the year. Rusty loves to ride, so we figure we can stop whenever he needs a potty break, so he can go along.
These pictures don’t begin to show the beauty of this place. I will try and get out and get better ones soon. I also have another bird I am hoping the “Bird Lady” can help me identify. My guess would be a Scrub Jay, but not sure.
I think it is a very pretty bird, whatever it is.
Poor little Rusty had to get 3 more shots yesterday. He certainly didn’t like that, and he really let them know. I also was amazed that he is now at 8.1 lbs. He gained almost a whole pound in 1 week. He also got another heart worm treatment, and flea treatment. His last treatments of frontline were a month ago, so he was due for another.
At least we have been having lots of warm weather with the clouds and mist. I don’t think our furnace has run at all for the last few days and nights. That is a good thing, because the first 2 weeks we were here, we were using a tank of fuel a week.
I need some more advise from you doggy owners out there. Rusty has a little bit of an odor. We have bathed him repeatedly, but can’t seem to get rid of the smell. It is not a strong smell, but it especially bothers me. Don can’t even smell it, and the Vet said she couldn’t either. I have always had a very sensitive nose, but don’t want this little problem to keep me from having a good relationship with our new puppy.. Help…….
Just talked to my beautiful daughter, Shannon. She was on her way home from work and just wanted to chat. She is having Christmas at her house this year, and I told her how pretty her tree and everything looks. She had some pictures posted on face book.
We were supposed to have live music again today, but the band canceled. Can’t say I blame them. Probably all have families to spend time with this time of the year. There was also games scheduled for tonight, but the hall is all decorated for another Christmas Party, so guess that is off too. There will be plenty of that next week and after the Holidays, I am sure.
Going to get off here and see what I can find to fix for supper. I think it will probably be meatballs and gravy. We like them that way, as well as with pasta and Marinara sauce. I make mashed taters instead of pasta, to go with the gravy. Catch you all later. :)
