Posts Tagged ‘great companion’

There has been a marked change in the weather. Yesterday it was in the 40’s and an absolutely lovely day. Today it is in 0’s and supposed to get even worse. One of the “nice” things about not having a job is that I will not have to go out in the very cold weather . . . oh wait yes I will.

We have this very large dog, Steve-O. He will insist on going out, he will insist on my staying in the present and not wallowing in my own self-pity. It is good to have something, someone, keeping you in the moment. We had a bit of health scare with him the last couple weeks. He tested slightly positive for both heartworm and lymes disease. The vet redid the tests and sent them out to independent labs for double/triple checking. He does not have either.

We were vastly relieved; heartworm is usually fatal in a dog the size of Steve. Our loving pound puppy is approximately 7.5 years old and weighs 107 pounds. Dogs of this size don’t usually have as long lives as smaller ones so we are doing everything we can to keep him around for as long as we can.

Hubby and Steve are out walking, it is a balmy 5 degrees, just about their favorite temperature. It would be even better if there was snow.  In a time of upheaval I hope you all have someone like Hubby or Steve who will keep you in the present and from wallowing in self-pity. Thank you Navy Girl for the loan of such a great companion.

Happy thoughts for a happy day!
