Glad you like - I have hundreds - it is always so hard to pick some and only a few to show all what I have been up to - which is really not much of anything.
It is a lot of work living out of a trailer that is 22'. Ha not to mention doing it with two very large dogs -hmmmm like Haily was at the vet yesterday and the little porker is tipping the scale and 90lbs!!! no wonder my wrist is not healing with the likes of lifting that little puppy in and out of the car. The stairs I bought really help when I remember them.
Back up a bit..I really wrenched my wrist when one of the yaks got away on me trying to put it up on the rack about 2 weeks ago. And with so much work with the dogs and doing stuff with the trailer it is taking a long time to heal.
Our time up at Monks Corner - out in the country - did not do real well with Haily - there is something in the wild that she is allergic to and contracted allergic junctivitis (sp) that made it's way to her tongue of course that transfered it to you know where since they don't do the toilet paper thing
So she has a flaming bladder/urinary infection now which we suspect she passed a few little stones the other day being so restless and straining so much. Haily has a predisposition to urinary infections that cause stones. She responds well to a course of antibiotics and I have to change her food for a couple of months.
But she has settled now and on a course of antibiotics and on eye drops. I have given them both Frontline for the ticks down here and having Peter send me down the heartworm which we don't usually give until I get home - if that. A blood test every 6 months is just as safe if not safer. - As the treatment for heartworm is just a higher dose of the toxin you give them 12 months of the year. JMHO anyway.
I am back at James Island County Park for a few weeks again and then may think about trying another park - I will take some time this weekend to tour around - since the weather has gone a little colder and cloudy it is perfect to leave the dogs in the car. - as opposed to leaving them in the trailer with the AC on.
Taz is coming along nicely now and will graduate next week to walking on her expandable lead. She is walking well with Haily but when Haily goes a bit too fast she does the hopping thing which we don't want her to do. Once she stops hopping I will know it is time to get her up a little faster each time. Haily on the other hand is really missing her off lead exercise so this month she will ride with me around the block every day a couple of times - starting her on a trot then a gallop just like a human tread mill - not much exercise for me mind you- but I get enough with the in and out of the trailer and car and tidying every day, sweeping and bending and hauling the storage bins - crawling into the back of the truck to get this or that and I do walk every day with the girls - so heck if I would just stop eating then that would be a good thing - but now I cook for myself I am having a ball!!! about to start on my stew for later for dinner. Give me something to do - it is time to clean out the fridge so it is a good time to throw it all in the pot
Well it seems I have expired here at the "contribution" of the forum - ha sorry but that word is a joke - why don't they just call it subscription and be done with it - so it is no longer a free forum - cause photos and posting go hand in hand really tee hee...I don't mind at all don't get me wrong - but call a spade a spade instead of beating around the bush... so off to figure out my paypal password as it seems I have forgotten that too...
Will post pics as soon as I am green again with the powers to be on the forum here...
