While Lucy definitely loves to have a pillow, she often snoozes with her head up. Like a nodding toddler, she briefly awakens when her head drops. Then she falls back to snoozing in the bright sunshine.
She has another "hot spot" that mandated a trip to the veterinarian this week. We caught it early which is a good thing because these areas can spread very quickly. Surprised that she had a hot spot in mid-winter, my husband asked our vet if this is common. He replied, "It's always hot spot season for Golden Retrievers." So she is on antibiotics which means she gets special little sandwiches with Laughing Cow cheese spread to obscure the pills. Fortunately she tends to leave the areas alone so she doesn't have to wear a cone. And they begin to heal almost immediately with the antibiotics and steroid sprays.
Please stop calling it a cat nap, Mom.
After several days of cooler than normal temperatures we are expecting some amazing days this weekend. Might get into the 60s with sunshine. Oh, I am so looking forward to Spring.
Author Barbara Kingsolver has this to say about dogs:
"A dog can't think that much about what he is doing.
He just does what feels right."
We should do the same. We always know if it feels right.
HAVE A WONDERFUL WEEKEND, EVERYONE
