Not much to say

I did something this morning that I rarely do: I read Ken's blog entry before writing mine. He's pretty much summed up everything that's happening right now. We're happy the x-rays showed that Tasha has nothing broken in her paw. She's already walking around more normally than yesterday. She should be back to her old self in a few days. Our challenge will be to keep her relatively still while her sprain heals.

The acacia leaves are turning yellow now.

Meanwhile, we're not doing daily walks with her, which means that we're not getting our own daily exercise. Sure, we could walk without her, but that seems mean! When I took her outside yesterday I noticed just how dry and brittle what's left of our "lawn" is. It's really sad looking. And the dried out ground feels like concrete. But it will all come back when (if) it starts raining again. ♫ I'm dreaming of a green Christmas. ♫ ♪


  1. ...Noêl au balcon, Pâques aux tisons!

  2. Great news about Tasha. Yeah, Jerry would use that as an excuse to not go for a walk.

  3. Good luck keeping that energy bunny still! Ha!

  4. Good that Tasha is making progress. Soon she will be 100%. It has been a long time since you mentioned Bertie. How is he doing?

  5. chm, we shall see!

    mitch, I've been walking dogs daily since 1992 when we got Collette, except for that year (2006) in between her and Callie. That year I gained nearly 20 pounds from not walking every day! I did lose it again when we got Callie.

    judy, she really wants to play!

    paul, Bert's doing fine. He's slowing down a little with age, and does a lot of sleeping in the house during the day. But he still hunts with great success!


Tell me what you think!
