Fridays Are Golden

Here we are already in the last weekend of February.  We are still having strange weather patterns indeed.  Monday morning found us with two inches of snow.  The temperature steadily climbed all day and melted most of it.  We've had rain, sleet, high winds and little sun this week.  Too many gray days for my liking.

Those expensive pills worked wonders for Lucy.  Within 24 hours she was walking normally and within 48 hours she seemed totally fine.  Now, of course comes the problem.  She is not supposed to run or twist for another two weeks.  And that will be very hard for her and for us.  Since she has not been active, I thought I would revisit her younger days in Wisconsin.

Both dogs loved chasing the flying toys.
Lucy had already learned that she stood little chance of taking it head-on.
So she grabbed it from the side of Ellie's mouth instead.

And just in case you thought using Ellie for a pillow was a recent thing...

This week's quote comes from the late Sydney J. Harris, one of my favorite columnists.

"Regret for the things we did can be tempered by time; it is regret for the things we did not do that is inconsolable."

So quit putting off that phone call or visit.  Do the things with your loved ones that you only talk about.  You won't regret it.

I'm so glad that Lucy is doing better. Over the years, our dogs have had some serious back problems, and in every case except one, they completely recovered and never had a problem again. That's what I hope happens for Lucy.

Love the quote. Have a great weekend!

Love the quote ... so true.
I'm glad that Lucy is better and maybe this strange weather (I'm getting it too) will keep her inside and quiet.

How true. A good guide for action. And my Baron's also visited the vet for his arthrities. Time magazine exhaustive report of the exorbitant pricing practices of hospitals was almost the eye opener that $140 for 20 antiinflamitory/anagesic pills for a dog. And yes I paid. And I do know that people pain pills are not to be used for animals.

I'm so relieved Lucy is better. I hope you can keep her calm enough to completely heal.
