This week has been another slow and HOT week here in west Missouri.
We have been under a heat alert most of the week and about all you want to do is stay in the a/c.
We had a big scare Wednesday night when Lady the 10 year old dog was out on the deck and went down in her back legs and could not get up. She weights about 100 lbs. I picked her up in the back and got her to stand but she went back down.
Lady has had arthritis for the last couple years and has a hard time getting up off the floor.Mentally she is sharp but her back legs are worn out and she’s over weight.
She loved to ride on our golf cart..
After I couldn't get her up and watching her drag her self to get in the door we thought it was her time to go to doggy heaven. I had to get a buddy next door to help get her in my truck so we could go to the Animal Emergency Center.
It was a very sad ride there as we thought we were going to put her to sleep so Angela was in the back seat with her saying her good byes. We got to the emergency vet and got her carried in and laid on the floor. The doctor came in and we told him the story and told him we thought it was her time. Her looked her over and said he would like to give her a shot of Dexamethasone and some other meds and she how she did in a few days. If that didn't work bring her back and he would put her down for free.
So we loaded her back up and paid the $182 and back home we went. I know Angela and I was glad she was coming back home but we knew we would be back in a day or so. We couldn't watch her lay and suffer and wet her self.
Back home we got her comfortable on the floor and we sat in the kitchen and talked about how long we would let her suffer. About a half hour later here she came walking into the kitchen and we sat and just looked at each other and was shocked. So far she is doing good she will have to be on her meds for the rest of her life.
Friday we worked around the house I fixed a window sill where the dogs over the years had scratched up from barking at anybody that walked by. I also hung some new mini blinds.
Saturday was time to start painting o boy I hate painting.
We have a lot of work to do to get the house ready to sale and I have time to start on it early and not be in a rush at the last minute.
Did I mention how much I hate to paint…..
Sunday back to work at the church…
ONE DAY CLOSER TO THE DREAM
