Collecting Pee March 14, 2009

That’s right, I said collecting pee.  We need to test Bubba’s urine for his blood sugar levels this weekend.  Definitely something easier said than done.anatomy-anotated_jack_russell

My husband tried on Friday a couple times with no success.  Every time he went outside with him, Bubba just sat there.  No pee forth coming.

I tried a couple times today with the same outcome.  None.

Then it hit me.  We needed to take both him and his sister out front on leases.  Finally, he peed on the neighbors fence (he has always been particle to fences) and I was right there with the cup.  He did kick it out of my hands, but enough stayed in the cup to test.

Now we just need to do it again two or three more times.

Dealing with change December 7, 2008

I don’t deal well with change.  I know this.  It is something I try to work on.  So image my surprise when I went to write a post this morning. 

I had no idea what to do.  I had logged on, but was I at the wrong place?  It all looked so different.  I couldn’t figure out where I was supposed to start writing.

Now all you blog people probably really love all this new stuff.  But I’m a 45 year old tech challenged person.  I freely admit that.  I’m more comfortable with a book or in the garden than I am with even a remote control. 

Yes there was a moment a panic.  I thought my blogging days where over at worst or at best I’d have to wait for my husband to wake up and help me.  But I worked through the panic.  I thought to myself, you can do this.  Just try and figure it out.  What’s the worse that could happen?  Well I could keep pushing buttons and freeze up my lap top or maybe wipe out something really important.

I don’t think that happened.  I dealt with the change and the panic.  I’m so proud of myself.  I’m going to try posting now and see what happens.

A dog’s gift from heaven October 28, 2008

The other day I was sitting outside enjoying some sun.  I had taken Bubba and Allie outside with me and they were each kind of doing their own thing roaming around the yard.

Bubba happened to be towards the back of the yard under some trees.  All of the sudden something fell from the tree right in of him.

Being a dog he started to sniff at it and put it in his mouth.  I was afraid it was a bird and yelled at him to drop it.  Which he did, to my great surprise.

I walked over still expecting to find a bird, dead or alive.  Instead what I found was a bone.  It looked like a rib bone, but I’m sure.  Having know idea where it came (besides the tree) I picked it up and throw it in the trash.

I think what happened was a squirrel either found the bone in another dogs yard or a trash can and was trying to take it to his home in our big old tree.

I’m sure Bubba thought that it was a gift from heaven, if only for a brief while.  How cool to have bones fall from the trees.
