A Few Words on Wordless Wednesday



We are going to start sounding like a broken record here.  But life is incredibly insane around here.



Lightning:  It's not ALL my fault.  Mom seems to be overwhelmed with her whole, crazy schedule.  Between me, the grands home for the summer, Dad's eyes, and a host of other dilemmas, there just aren't enough hours in the day.

Misty:  I hope it doesn't mean we don't get to go for our walks.  Timber and I love those long strolls.

Timber:  I am OK as long as there are still lots of good treats being dispensed.

Mom says we don't have to worry about any of those things, but we do have to put our blog on hiatus (whatever that means???) for a while.  We also are struggling to keep up with commenting on your posts.  Please know that we are thinking about all of you and hope to be back soon.

Serene Sunday Ussie




We hope you are all having a very Serene Sunday.  Last week was a blur of misfortunes at our home, but we are ready for things to hopefully be on the up and up.  Lightning is doing OK, but he has an additional injury to his bad knee.  So he is getting a little more pain medication.  But he is a trooper - he keeps on keeping on the best he can.  Thanks for all of your concern for him.


Happy Sunday to all.

Tuesday's Tale (of woe)

Well, it's another problem for Lightning.  Mom says he just can't catch a break.  We will let Lightning tell you what happened.



Yesterday I was out with Mom taking care of business.  I don't walk "properly" on either of my back legs.  When we came inside, Mom caught me licking the paw on my "better of the two" legs, and there were several spots of blood on the floor.  Upon closer examination, she saw that two of my nails were broken all the way to the quick.  She thinks I must have turned my foot under on the sidewalk and snapped the two nails. My nails were just trimmed a week ago.


So off to the vet I went.  I had to spend the night because the vet thought he might have to sedate me to do his work.  I was a good boy and no sedation was needed. But we have torrential rain here in OP.  When Mom picked me up this morning, I came out to her not only with the dreaded cone, BUT I also had a trash bag wrapped around my foot to keep the bandage dry.  Well, that trash bag lasted less than 45 seconds and was totally off before we even got to the car.


As you can see, I am happy to be home despite another problem. Now we have to figure out how to keep my bandage dry while we get through the next umpteen days of predicted rain.  Actually I only have to wear the bandage for up to two days.  Mom is also hoping that my dear siblings don't try to help me remove that bandage.  Then, on top of everything else, Mom and Dad are going away for the long Memorial Day weekend, and I, along with Misty and Timber, will be off to camp.  Mom is already stressing about me, but she also knows I will be OK because we always stay at a boarding kennel that is part of a veterinary clinic, not ours, but still a good one.  

We probably won't be around much until next week.  Send along all the POTP you can muster for me.  It always helps to have support from my friends.

So we guess we can be happy that Lightning is home and will be fine in a few days!!!

Thankful Thursday

Today we are joining Brian's Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.



We always have so much to be thankful for from the wonderful home we have to all the many friends we have made through this blog.  We are very grateful to all of you for all the good thoughts you have been sending Lightning's way.

Today we have a special shout-out to a sweet friend from across the Big Pond.



 We bet this "Royal Mail" envelope gives you a big hint.


And here's an even bigger hint - beautiful butterflies - that can only mean one thing.


PRINCESS LEAH and her nice Mum sent this beautiful card to Lightning. Thank you, Leah and Mum, for your kindness.  Lightning sends some love and licky kisses right back to you.


Thank you, Princess Leah.  That was a very nice surprise for Lightning.  Here are three smiles of thanks for you.




Now, let's see if we can talk Mom into letting us all go out to play together - NOT!!!
