Day 59

Ugh........ I just got home from work. Everyone in the office either has strep or is at a I guess tomorrow I'm the agency. Lovely.

On a personal note, I made Bear's appointments today. Monday, we go in for blood work and to get his face checked out to make sure that we can do this. Because of Bear's breathing, the vet wants to do a really thorough check before using anesthesia with him, a move I thoroughly appreciate! If all goes well and his blood work is good, the surgery is Friday of next week. That will give us the opportunity to be here with him during early recovery which I will feel much better about!

It was a really really long day today, ending in facilitating a satellite class tonight, so I am exhausted and I think Bear knows. He's been a real softie with me since I got home and just wants to hang around with me...and sit on my desk chair with me while I write...and drool in my ear... I still haven't figured out how he manages to fit up here at the same time as I do.

Oh well. It his way of letting me know that the day was as long for him as it was for me. Its kind of nice to come home to someone who just wants lay on my ankles and chew on my feet...

Happy wandering!

The Writer...and her dog, Bear

Yuck...Strep. Wipe down your desk with clorox wipes!! I had strep this past summer, I thought it was a cold, but found out during a weekend trip to Deep Creek that it was most def not a cold.

Bear sounds like such a sweetie. Peanut will just snuggle up next to me when I am tired too. It's wonderful!

That dog loves you! And he is not ashamed to show you how much he does. Treasure that, please. The Überhund can be so nonchalant.

I thought I was coming down with the flu, but my doctor said it was just allergies.

Now I'm all doped up on anti-histamines and I can't function very well.

Yeah for Bear and his upcoming surgical adventure!
