Late Sunday Post


Home again, home again, jiggety jig.....

We all arrived home on Friday, a day later than expected.  The painters did a great job, but they are so very meticulous.  They were supposed to be done on Wednesday.  Since the exact time for Thursday was up in the air, Mom and Dad had to book an extra night at their hotel, and we had to stay at the vet's place another night too. 



 Synchronized ignoring of the flashy beast.  Are you wondering why?


Lightning and Ciara are about to stage a sit-in because word is we are all headed back to the kennel on Wednesday.  Something about sanding and refinishing hardwood floors and Siberian furs not mixing very well.   Tile work on Monday and Tuesday too.  With rain forecast for all day Tuesday, we may even have to go a day earlier:(  At least once the floors are done, there is just a little bit of faux painting to be done and new carpeting to be laid - we get to stay home for that:)



Phantom has been doing quite well with all the upheaval.  He has been eating well and looking pretty perky. That is, UNTIL today.  Mom is a bit worried about him.  He has been acting quite oddly all day and didn't want to go for his walk this afternoon.  He hasn't moved around very much either and has done a lot of staring into space.  Mom thinks his gums are a bit on the pale side.  BUT one good thing, he did eat his dinner.  He just recently started getting Adequan shots for his back hips.  It is not a medication with very many bad side effects, but Mom is wondering if maybe he is having a reaction???  Please keep him in your thoughts that maybe this is just an off day for him.

Woos - Phantom, Ciara, and Lightning

Oh, Phantom. We're sending you loads of good thoughts your way.

I know you will be happy to get the re-model done. Floors are something on our schedule too, but probably until next year.

We are all sending our best healing purrs to you dear Phantom. We hope it is just a bad fur day.

BeadedTail said...

Phantom, we're sending you lots of purrs that you feel better soon! We're glad you're all back home for awhile. We don't quite understand why Sibe furs and refinishing floors don't mix because we think that'd be really purrty to have furs embedded in your floors furever!

Lovable Lily said...

We totally had to laugh at that camera avoidance picture! We do that all the time just to annoy Mom. We can see you are experts at it too!

Sounds like the house is coming along well. Nice when a plan comes together.

Hang in there Phantom. We've got our paws crossed for you. Hope maybe it's just from all the house work going on around there.

Hugs,
Lily Belle & Muffin

I had one dog who did have reactions to Adequan injections (Acadia, before my blog started). She'd vomit a little bit about 15 min after the injection (and then she'd seem fine). It happened 4X in a row. The vets said that NO dogs in their practice had ever before had bad reactions to adequan injections, but to be safe, they stopped giving them to her. Phantom's "off day" sounds pretty different from her reactions (I assume he didn't have an injection today). I sure hope that he feels better soon.

It seems like you can always count on remodeling taking longer than predicted - at least that's our experience. I'm glad you're all coping okay, and my fingers are crossed that Phantom feels better tomorrow.

sprinkles said...

Your house was already beautiful before the remodel. I can't wait to see it after.

It's good to be home. Nothing like sleeping in your own bed after you've been away for a bit.

Phantom was always my favorite out of your sibes, he's always in my prayers.

24 Paws of Love said...

24 Paws crossed for you Phantom. Hope you feel better soon.

And sending prayers that Ciara and Lightning make it through the kennels again.

Sending lots of Woos your way with all our Sibe Vibes!!

easyweimaraner said...

Dear Phantom, please feel better soon. I cross all my paws&claws.

scotsmad said...

We hope it's just for one day. Glad you guys got day release, so you could get home for awhile.

Hope everything goes as planned, to the work is all done soon.

Paws crossed for Phantom.

Reilly-Denny Cowspotdogs said...

We have all eight paws crossed for phantom...we were very worried what all the disruption to his routine would have....these stoic types don't show much on the outside but inside all sorts of worries can bother them. That is what we found with mr Reilly. We hope he feels better when he finally gets homes and hopefully he will enjoy his yummy chicken when it arrives.

Dip-Dip and the Bridge said...

Hope you are feeling better today Phantom.
Glad your painters have gone and you got your house back. Nobody over here ever does anything on the day they are supposed to - I would fall over with shock if they did!

We're so glad you're coming to the end of all the renovation. It does sound like everything will be done in time for everyone to be home and settled to celebrate your 15th birthday, Phantom!

Molly The Wally said...

We send healing vibes and POTP to Phantom. Let's just hope he is just a bit disoriented because of all the upheaval. You are in our thoughts and prayers.
Best wishes Molly

Well I'm sure ALL of you will be glad when the renovation work is completed....and perhaps between that and just having "an off day" Phantom's just resting up. We hope so...paws crossed...

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

Phantom, we are sending you strong White Dog strength and positive energies and hope you are just having an off day. Know we are surrounding you in our love.

Soon, dear friends, all of the upheaval will be done and things will be marvelously fresh...and all will return to routine...whatever that means.

What thinks you (and your brother, Thunder) of Bella E. Premuroso, Tiny White Dog (TWD)?

Arno Vom Altvilstal said...

Dear Phantom, you are in our thoughts all the time, my dear friend! We hope it is because of the upside down you had at home this last time, that you feel a little bit stressed! Don't worry, everything is going to be good again very soon!
Love
Arno
