I got the Christmas tree up today, and I didn't have the heart to put it up where I usually do, only because that is Radar's "safe haven" so I just made room for it else where in the house. Radar was already acting weird this morning. After we come in from the morning outside trip, he wouldn't go lay in his bed, I looked at the bed, picked it up, wondering what in the hell it was that was bothering him. Well after about a hour I figured it out, there was a throw blanket over the back of the chair, its not usually there, so once I put that away he slowly got back into routine. Some days I wonder if I'm going crazy or if they are, OR maybe we're going together. Its always nice to have company :)

All the dogs were unhappy this morning because of the rain, except Hazel, the rain doesn't bother her one bit. She runs and plays in the yard like its nothing. Piper really hates it, I made her go out and she just sat at the door with her tail tucked begging to come back in. It finally slowed down enough that she went out and done her business. Cashew would only go out if I accompanied her, geez what a brat :) I don't blame any of them for not wanting to go out, I wouldn't want to go out in this cold, wet stuff either but sometimes we have to do what we don't want to, right? Here's Cashew curled up with Izzy, or rather her back end.
I wish all of my readers a very Happy Thanksgiving, be thankful for what you have and forget about the things you don't. I believe God gives us what we need and only gives us as much as we can handle.

I wish I could figure out why he does this, it always happens at night time and it hasn't happened for over a month now. For awhile after the last time he done this I made him wear a lead every time he went out, but quit doing it as he started coming in just fine. I just can't understand it, this time I tried hot dogs, cheese, just leaving the door propped open and walking away, nothing worked till our send David out to the yard plan.

Izzy is recovering from her food "binge" last night, I was a little worried, she bloated up and her belly was as hard as a rock, in fact I think you could have bounced a coin off of it. She made many trips outside last night. Last night while we were in bed she laid at my feet and about every 15 minutes she would bark, it was her frustrated bark, the one that lets you know she has had enough, this went on all night long. I think she had a major belly ache and that was her way of letting her belly know she had enough?? I don't know, the dog is nuts LOL Today I gave her a Pepcid to help with her belly and she is much better tonight, she is a little ticked off because I didn't feed her a regular meal today, all she got was some meat to take the Pepcid with and a few dried cranberries. I really don't think she needs any real amount of food today, we'll resume as normal tomorrow.

Lately I've been feeling under the weather and no I still have not called the doctor, I feel like my days are so full that I can't find the time to call and then make it to the appointment. This coupled with the last few weeks it all becomes a clustered mess, I need some calgon to take me away from it all for just a little while. I have a lot of things I've put on the back burner that I need to take care of but I'm mentally and physically exhausted. No catching up this weekend, the group has a bake sale going on and I have an adoption event to attend.

I was very happy today to see 2 of my previous foster dogs, both adoptive families stopped by to get some calendars since their dogs were in them. First to stop by was Soclo, just as sweet as I remember him and in true Soclo style he rolled over for a good belly rub! I haven't seen him since February when he was adopted by Molly and her wonderful daughter. I wish I would have gotten a picture of him but at that point Petco was busy and I wasn't thinking straight.

I heard from a previous adopter the other day when I emailed her to let her know that Soclo now Snowcone, one of my previous fosters was in our St. Louis Senior Dog Projects 2011 Calender. Actually 2 of my fosters are in the calendar, which makes me happy. Soclo now Snowcone is on the month of December and Payla now Bella is on the month of October. Snowcone's mom told me they were going to try to stop by on Sunday to visit and get a calendar. I really hope they do, I haven't seen Snowcone since February when he got adopted. She did tell me he is still doing very well, and loves playing with his stuffed cow. Oh and he was going to be a Bumble Bee for Halloween :) He is one of those amazing dogs that somehow end up in the pound and find their lives hanging in the balance.
