My mother made fabric, sand-filled "snakes" to block drafts from the the bottom of the outside-leading doors...they work great and look nice, but the dog thinks they are toys made especially for him! He has to go outside via the side door instead of the back door because of this! Crazy dog! I love him to pieces, though!
I told Mom she'll have to make him a toy of his own now...as if he doesn't have enough toys and bones! Mom has something in mind.
I feel a little better today. I made a bag of kibble this morning and a whole bunch of pumpkin/apple biscuits for the dogs in our family. CJ loves them, but I don't know how my brother's dogs will take to them. My son's dog, Mary, will adore them!
My mother and I split one and decided they aren't bad, just a bit bland to us since I don't add any sugars. CJ caught us...it was not a comfortable time for Mom and me!!!! Haha!
I have a headache hanging around since very early this morning...it kinda hurts but can be ignored most of the time...for that, I'm grateful!
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Okay, so, I wake up Mom with a cold, wet nose to the face at 3 am because I have to pee. Normal! Mom gets up, throws on her water shoes and says, "Ok, lets go." We go to the kitchen, out to the garage and Mom unlocks the backdoor. She turns on the light and peers outside and says, "Shoot, the grass wasn't cut yet, I can't see a thing."She opens the door...
I see the bunny...it sees that I spotted it...the bunny bolts and the chase is ON! Mom is behind me and she seems like she's trying to keep quiet, she's holding the long leash in both hands (deathgrip comes to mind), holding on for dear life, as I charge across the back yard. Mom is essentially water-skiing on the long, wet grass behind me...then she hit the bump...BOOM, down she went! Amazingly, I managed to haul her considerable bulk about another 10 or 12 feet before I had to stop! I ALMOST had the bunny before she fell, and she was mad at ME!!! How ridiculous is THAT??
Anyhow, she's over her mad, the bunny lives to be chased another night and Mom wasn't SERIOUSLY hurt!
PS: Found out it's no fun after all... at night she makes me wear the head collar! I HATE that thing!

Joel has pneumonia as well now...apparently he aspirated when he was vomiting!
He may have to be intubated today...makes it hard later for his body to breathe on it's own.
This is NOT very good news.
More news later as it comes in! Please, all the prayers you all can muster for Joel!!!
