see the look on the dog’s face?  he knows his baby sister had a crappy day…


the plumbing problem that pickles discovered let her and cody bear to be stashed in the back yard for almost 4 hours on saturday.  the landlord and plumber couldn’t have the dogs kissin’ on them during their work, so the dogs played out back.  it was a cool sunny day.  the guys left several times to go to the hardware store to get the wrong parts.   each time they left i let the dogs in.  the final time they left pickles came in limping.


it was bad.  she had gotten into a cactus and her left front paw had several long prickers embedded in.  a.h. had to come over and help me get them out while the plumbers…plumbed.  that puppy is really quite strong.  she was screaming and writhing and oh…it was horrible.  she’ll probably never let me clip her nails again.


there is still one spine we could not get out. the vet will have to get it out this week.  we’re going in to find out what her mysterious lima bean size lump is.  she’s a little tired today, but has no trouble running around after cody bear.  dogs don’t get the meaning of “bed rest”.

Poor Pickles! She needs some nice strong hiking boots …

So, that wasn’t much of a weekend! I hope you get some peaceful, merry, non-ER-type holidays coming to you.

I don’t know….what kind of plumber doesn’t want puppy kisses while working?

My, what big feet she has! Poor wee lass. Hope the vet can sort out her problems.

Pobrecita! Codybear does indeed look stressed.

What was she doing playing with cacti? Silly girl.

I hope Pickles feels better soon! 😦 You’ll have to give her paw pad massages every night after she heals so she won’t fear you. But I know you already thought of that. 😉
