Good morning. Sorry about not posting yesterday, but by the time we got home, made lunch, washed the dishes, etc. it was after 3:30 so I figured I'd just wait till this morning to post.
As you know, Deanne and I took Sassy to the hospital to find out what was wrong with her. Sassy has been having trouble climbing the stairs lately, and started whimpering in her sleep. We were hoping it was just arthritis creeping in and nothing more serious. As it turned out, that's basically what the problem was.
Sassy is a tiny twelve pound Chihuahua (plus a bit of pug I think) and is not used to being trotted off to the hospital to be poked and probed. The poor darling was very scared to say the least. But she did a great job (did not bite the doctor). Actually, she probably would have bit the doctor, but she had a tiny little muzzle on. Here's a photo of her mommy (Deanne) cuddling her close so that she won't be scared.
After a few tests, the doctor prescribed some medicine to help with the pain and the inflammation. Deanne will get the results from the tests sometime today. Hopefully, they will show nothing else wrong.
While we were away, the mailman left me a package. It was a children's book that I had ordered. I first saw this book mentioned on Steve's blog. It's called "Tucker's Countryside." I had never read this book and the cover picture was so intriguing that I just had to get a copy. Amazon here I come! Well I read it last night, and I must say it was such a delightful story with wonderful drawings throughout the book.
Is this sweet little mouse going to be lunch for the robins? Or are the robins lowering the branch so that Tucker (the mouse) can grab a hold of it? You'll have to read the book to find out. (You never really get too old to read children's books.)
By suppertime, I wasn't sure what I might cook up, but then I remembered the pizza I had in the freezer. So, yup, that's what I had. Spinach pizza. Yum, yum! I was good and only ate two of the three slices. I'll have the remaining slice for lunch today.
After supper, Pogo curled up on a blanket near me on the sofa and had himself a nap while I was reading the book. I just couldn't help taking another photo of him sleeping. He's just a tiny bundle of precious.
When I finished reading the book, I decided to go meet up with the Sandman too. A perfect ending for a very good day. Now I'm off to do a bit of blog reading. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
