I’ve been really quiet the couple of weeks, I just don’t have alot to say – either verbally or in writing. Just haven’t felt much like talking to anyone.
She is still trying to befriend Nola, and Nola is still playing hard to get. But that’s Nola for ya, she’s always been snobby to other dogs. She will come around as the pup gets big enough to play more roughly with, right now she races by the pup and spins her in the process.
Sleeping arrangements are solid. Nola sleeps with me in my bed and Lulu has her own Pack n Play playpen where she sleeps in the other room. This keeps the peace.
The two of them went to the veterinarian’s last Wednesday, and both are in stellar health. The puppy weighed 1.3 lbs. and Nola weighed 16 lbs. So she’s down a little from her last visit, and looks great. Both are very healthy, thank my lucky stars. I was smart and took our a health insurance policy on the puppy, since she’s so young and it seemed like a good think go have should I ever have any health emergencies with her. When Nola was very young she suffered from seizures and it about put me in the poor house paying for all of her emergency vet visits. She did out grow them, but they are something that some of the mini breeds do have as puppies sometimes from what I am told.
Spring is finally here. The snow is gone save for some really hardcore remnants of higher snowbanks. My property is about 95% clear and I have started the raking and outdoor clean up process. I’ll be doing more of that today, just taking a mid-day break to see my therapist at noon. It’s amazing how much work goes into keeping a nice yard. I love doing it, but I do have torn rotator cuffs in both shoulders that bother me, and nerve damage in my right arm which makes it half go numb…so I do take frequent breaks from the repeated raking to rest it up and try not to do any further damage. I’m supposed to get shots in the shoulder and in my c-spine on the 22nd. That ought to be an experience. The shots won’t cure the problem, but they will ease the pain some at least for a couple of months. It’s just a bitch getting old. But it happens to everyone!
So that’s what’s happening in the sometimes boring life of this old Butch lately. Still just hanging in there making life work on a daily basis. Still very single and still waiting to meet the woman of my dreams. I’m still not feeling much like blogging, but after getting quite a number of messages from other bloggers and readers I thought I would do this short blog to let you all know that I am still alive and doing okay. Peace. ~MB
