Ever-Changing Reflection

Your pain is the breaking of the shell that encloses your understanding... It is the bitter potion by which the physician within you heals your sick self. Therefore trust the physician, and drink his remedy in silence and tranquility.

Wonderful Wednesday

I have to say this Wednesday has been nothing short of wonderful. I woke up this morning in a gray-sky morning (kudos if you know that song) with rain pattering outside. I struggled to my computer in a pink cloud of a bathrobe and began working. Shortly thereafter, the blackened sky cracked open and the most magnificent ray of bright sunshine illuminated the street outside my window, in the midst of pouring rain! I love weather days like this.

To make the day even more wonderful, Lilian at Lateral Window bestowed an award on me!

Whew! That was a lot of work! Congrats to all of the nominees!

I'm going to close this post with a story that I find amusing (in no way is it meant to be cruel). Our adorable Lhasa Apso Morris (he has his own label if you want to see pictures) has been gnawing on his little paws the past couple weeks like it's going out of style. So, I took him to the vet today -- a new vet at that! He was a very good boy, and the vet and all the nurses loved him because he was super laid back and a flirt wagging his tail for everyone.

Turns out, as we thought, our little furry man has allergies! We thought it was something we were feeding him, but no. Vet says Morris has seasonal allergies. I didn't even know dogs could have seasonal allergies! Like his momma (me), Morris seems to sneeze at pollen, dust and mold! LOL... Sorry Morris, but I think that is pretty darn funny.

No worries, my animal-loving friends; he is being treated... with antihistamines! Doggy Benadryl! LMAO! And we have to bath his feet once a week in medicated shampoo to hopefully kill the fungal infection that's developed in his paws from all of the licking.

Ah, the joys and surprises of parenthood.

Summer said...

Your doggie is sooooo cute. And I don't even much care for dogs! So, that's saying a lot. =)

Collins @ Life. Mostly Sweet. said...

By the way - I know someone who has a golden retriever that is allergic to grass. GRASS. Not much you can do about that. The poor dog has boots that he is supposed to wear when he goes outside. Can you imagine??

Jen said...

Aw, thanks for all the compliments/well wishes on my pup... he's all right, we'll keep him around! Haha, we love him to pieces. He's doing ok on his meds, and he's such a good boy about taking them!
