My Tail Hurts From Wagging So Much
Saturday April 18th, 2015 at 04:08 AMMaddux hasn't been acting right the past couple of days, but I wasn't sure exactly what was wrong, until two days ago. He kept scratching his ear, which I thought was odd, but then I smelled it. Whoa. Not a good smell, and this was after his bath. Luckily, I was going to New Jersey for work, so it worked out well. A quick trip to the vet and we learned he has a bad bacterial yeast infection. It's nothing a little ear watch and daily medicine can't take care of in 7-10 days. With floppy ears,... Wednesday April 15th, 2015 at 09:30 PMWe visited our first doggie day care in the area today. In a nutshell, Toby couldn't wait to leave and Maddux had a ball. Toby couldn't jump into my car fast enough and Maddux refused to get in. As my aunt said today when I told her about it, "it pretty much sums up their personalities." Both of them however, were exhausted. They haven't really barked, or moved, since we came back. I did notice they are both moving a lot slower and Toby's legs are bothering him a lot tonight. He had a very... Sunday April 12th, 2015 at 11:37 AMOne of the benefits of where I live is that I am pretty much walking distance to the the lake's public beaches, including a dog beach. Maddux got to experience that benefit today for the first time, as me, Toby and our friends Jen and Jenks spent a few hours at the beach on this absolutely beautiful Spring day! He wasn't exactly sure what to make of it, but that could have been because he was super tired from not sleeping well the night before and a long walk earlier this morning. Getting him... Friday April 10th, 2015 at 02:39 PMYay! It's the first time Toby gets to celebrate National Siblings Day! I guess that's actually not completely true. He has had bird, tortoise and fish siblings, but this is the first time he has a dog sibling! Does your pet have siblings? Friday April 10th, 2015 at 02:35 PMWhat a week! Things started out excellent. A fun Easter on Sunday and then took the day off Monday to attend Yankees Opening Day. That afternoon things started to go downhill. At first I really didn't think anything of the slight headache and slightly upset tummy I had on Monday afternoon, but that evening chills and more started. Yup, I had the dreaded stomach bug that was going around. My Dad had it for four days, and stayed in NJ to take care of him, and we learned later that he likely... Monday April 6th, 2015 at 06:39 AMIt's here! It's here! Opening Day of baseball! Being a baseball fan, this is a super big deal. It's something I have wanted to go to forever, but either I couldn't take the day off, or I couldn't get reasonable tickets. Not this year. I got reasonable tickets, and I took the day off. So excited. Although the dogs can't come with me, I did put them in their Yankees jersey this morning and took photos! As you can tell, I am a Yankees fan, but really, I just like the sport overall. Do you follow... Sunday April 5th, 2015 at 09:50 AMHappy Easter! Boy did we have fun today. First of all, it is also Toby's gotcha day. Not Easter, but April 5. Seven years ago today I brought home this little bug and life was never the same. Yeah, I made him wear this yesterday in the store and almost bought it for him, but in reality, it really didn't fit him well. I made the boys an Easter basket with a cute bag of plastic egg dog toys and stuffed toys that look like chocolate Easter bunnies. Then, came the fun! My Dad held the boys while... Saturday April 4th, 2015 at 02:50 PMThere was a bright thing in the sky this morning. It was something I haven't seen in a while. THE SUN!!!!!! It was absolutely beautiful. The only problem? Super windy. But, I'll take it. Now that the warm weather is here we have been going for morning walks, and even sometimes an after-work walk too. The benefit of working from home -- your commute time turns into dog-walk/exercise time, and you get to start your day super refreshed without the stress of sitting in an hour, or more, of...
