Lucky dogs!!! L & M don't seem to care much for being in water. I knew Lily wouldn't, but I was surprised when Moira didn't want to go into the lake.

We just went for a walk - just to the corner and back. The ladies need a refresher course in heeling. I suspect they are pulling with the dog walker. They both stood beside the back door of the car. 6 foot leashes are for going to the vet or downtown, never walking in our own neighborhood. It's a start. Yes, I wore my cell phone around my neck in a little pouch a friend knitted for me.

Sarah, one of my fears is having a dog develop incontinence. Not something you put a pet down for, but not something I would want to live with. That's a tough one.

My handyman coming tomorrow to paint the trim on the house. I did it last time, but I don't think it's a good idea now.

Flicka, are you yelling at me? (The caps). I watered all my own flowers yesterday. The ones on the shed meant I had to go across the rough lawn with a gallon of water in each hand. The dog walker is supposed to do it to 'pay' for the bike, but he wasn't around. He did see me coming back from buying paint for the trim on the house and stopped to see if I needed anything carried in. Sweet kid.

I put flea preventive on L & M Sunday. Today is wormer. I hope 48 hours is enough time between chemicals. I usually plan better than that. Interesting that Lucas is a shedder. I've always thought it was Moira's Lab blood that was instrumental in her shedding, even though it's long silky BC hair she sheds in the house. The undercoat I brush out in such huge amounts is short, soft and more grayish than black.

Toto, my daughter uses Moira's fur to keep the deer out of her apple orchard. Too bad that won't work with the raccoon because you'd have an ample supply. I've never seen a dog shed like Moira - not even my Sib/wolf.

Flicka, I am allergic to SS. Dr L knows that though we haven't discussed it since 1993. He called me three days before the surgery to tell me he could obtain all the screws and plates in high grade titanium, but the pins he needed only came in SS. I told him to go ahead with it as they would be removed. My body had to be reacting, but the burning pain was around the bigger plate, not the four pins. It's gone now so that's all that matters. Crutches work well for me as long as the foot isn't total non weight bearing and I can touch the heel to the ground. Wheelchair is my fav, but I can't transport it alone.

I want to go walking so badly. I almost took L & M out for a VERY short walk this evening, but my son called and convinced me wait until I have the boot. I really am not very stable so I know he's right. Patience has never been my strong suit. The dog walker came back a second time today which was nice. Lily girl likes evening walks.

Oh, good, more puppy pictures coming!

I had no trouble getting into Dogster. Maybe things are looking up.

Sonja, it sounds like a great trip. Pictures? I want to thank you for the lymphatic exercises you posted for someone a couple of months ago. My therapist feels they are helping on several levels.

Today was my first day out and about. My hands are sore from using crutches, but it went pretty well. Inclines are fun when you have to keep your weight on your heel. Went to the art fair, the beach and to dinner. Stainless steel pins are out and the titanium plate isn't burning anymore. Strange, but good. The doctor was pleased with the Xrays. I was a little bummed because the cast isn't the end. I move to the big boot next. Oh, well, time will pass and I will probably be a little more mobile with it as opposed to this cast.

Lily and Moira are being very quiet. Are they bummed because I was away Thursday and today? Spoiled babies.

Whoops, should have said "not getting enough exercise" Justin did come back this evening and take them out a second time so that's a plus. Poor kid had no bicycle. I thought that was a right of passage for a 13 yo. My oldest daughter gave him one and he is a pleased camper. She intended it as a gift, but I told him he needed to take over her work of watering my flowers - she just had a knee replaced and has a huge flower garden of her own. I also added sweeping outdoors. There is no such thing as a free lunch and it won't hurt him to work for the bike. He's more than happy to.

Flicka, I'm not going to worry about the foot. I am curious to see the x-rays tomorrow. Have a laid down new bone as well as I always have or has my age caught up with me? I'd like a new cast, but I can do 13 more days with my sunshine yellow one. Whatever.

L & M have their food floated on dry food days. Last night they had chicken thighs and beef heart so plenty of moisture there. They are only moderate drinkers, IMO, so I like to give them the extra water.

Sanka, you did the right thing, though it must have been a sight. Have you tried Oxiclean on the blouse? Make a paste and leave it on a while.

This is the first time I've been able to get on in several days. Not much going on here. The plate in my foot is burning. I'm hoping there's no metal allergy going on. I react to stainless steel so the doctor used titanium. Hopefully, it's just healing. First X rays are Thursday, plus the pins are coming out. 2 more weeks and the big cast comes off.

L and M aren't getting exercise - I can't convince the youngster how long a walk they are used to, but they will survive.

Sanka, thank you for my laugh of the day - a picture of you chasing 4 birds. Sorry. laugh out loud Honey sounds like such a nice dog. What does Kato think when he gets left home? My two do not like to be separated, though they are starting to adjust if the teenager only wants to take one at a time. They don't behave as well for him as they do for me and took off running together one day. He was sweaty and red when he arrived back here.

I took a huge amount of hair off Moira and almost none from Lily. I've never seen a dog with Siberian blood shed as little as Lily does. Do Shiba Inus have much of a coat? Moira laid on her side in the carport - we had several neighbor children stop by to see if she was okay. They thought she was hurt and I was trying to pick her up. One girl about 10 stayed to 'help'. She wants to be a veterinarian. It was nice to have someone to hold Lily while I cut her nails. Ri just offers you her paw, but not Miss Lily though she was pretty good. The girl tried to convince she had cut dogs' nails and could do Lily, but I don't think so. Nor is anyone getting hold of the Furminator. That thing is close to being a hazard.

We were supposed to have possible light rain. Ha - we had several downpours and thunder. Poor campers. It has been a cool week and due to get colder the first part of next week. Okay for me, but this is a vacation area and it is summer.

Sarah, there was a Puggle in Moira's obedience class. You described him perfectly.

Yes, Bunny, I have been a lurker. I'm not going to write much in case this one gets bounced back, too. Lily and Moira are doing fine. They still don't understand why I can't go walking with them, but at least they are going more willingly with the dog walker. He just came back for a second walk. Good for him and the dogs, but he's going to break me. I was jus thinking that the dogs prefer afternoon walks to morning when I heard the soft little knock on the door. Serendipity?

I think when he comes back I'll get him to help me water flowers, then I'll cover my cast with a bag and brush Moira. I don't want a cast full of dog hair. Lily, too, but she doesn't shed like Moira.

edit: cheerMade it!

It's two dogs under the feet night. We are probably two miles from where the big fireworks are set off, but I think the sound travels well across water. Moira never minded in the past, but she joined Lily last year. I do wish that noisy ones could not be sold to the public and they could be restricted to no more than two nights, but that's a pipe dream these days.

Lily isn't doing too well with the dogwalker. She just has so much trouble leaving me. I hate having to push her out and tell her to, "Go", but he says she's better once she's off this block. He stops at his house and the family has fallen for Lily. She jumps and yodels for the father so she can't be too traumatized. Moira goes a little more willingly and her bounce is coming back. They will survive. It has to be better than not getting out at all. Nice kid, but I told him yesterday if he wants to continue to be paid, he needs to extend the time.

My son came up for the day - in from New York, this time, so we went to my #1 daughter's house for dinner. His stepdaughter has seen fireworks somewhere downstate and D didn't want to stay, so I am home, but it's fine. I sat beside him the first fireworks he attended after coming out of the Marine Corps and he wasn't there with me. I got his attention very carefully. because I didn't want to startle him. Today was a nice time. Always good to see cousins having fun together and D is so good with little ones.

I got rid of my temporary cast yesterday and now a have a sturdier one. It wasn't done correctly and I had to have my friend have at with pliers last night. Now it will be okay for 3 1/2 weeks. Two weeks until the first Xray to see how things are going and the pins come out. Surgery was much more extensive than I had thought. There were 75 staples and stitches that came out yesterday. My car acted up all the way up and back. Such fun! 100 mile round trip in National Cherry Festival traffic with my car making strange noises. Luckily, my friend is very calm so I was able to stay was calm, too.

My daily attempt at posting. It still reverts back to the log in page. I'll try as Moira this time.
