Timber! Oops... Fence Dented

Links to this post
On our walk this morning... 

Morgan and I came upon this problem.
Yes, the fence caught a tree branch.

This is a branch from one of the neighbors trees.
The fence is kinda squished.

I tried to get a photo of the branches that are way, way 
up toward the tops of the trees
but my little camera can't really get a good picture of them.

But take it from me they are really high up.
When the branches fall they look like small trees.

Here is another one.
Nice... this one missed the fence.
I don't walk around out here when the wind is blowing.

I was a bit tired after our walk and settled for a quick breakfast.
A little bowl of raisins, walnuts and a piece of candy!
I usually just settle for nuts and raisins
but Christmas candy is too tempting for me to pass up.

Kristine says I don't have any will power.
I do.
My will said, "Have a piece of chocolate!"
So, I did!

While the weather was sunny this morning
Tom went down to pick up chicken feed and he got boots for me.

I was so happy that they turned out to be Muck boots!
Gee! And I hadn't even asked for Muck boots.

I wanted some and looked for them online to find a store near us
but couldn't find a store listed that carried them.
So, they were a big surprise.
Morgan wasn't impressed at all.

Happy Holidays To You!

Morgan's Pink Raincoat

Links to this post
There were many missed opportunities today to take a photo of Morgan
wearing her new pink raincoat and beige muzzle.

I laid the raincoat,  leash and muzzle out here to dry.
I guess I am so glad to get in out of the rain
and relieve Morgan of the muzzle and wet raincoat
that taking a picture just doesn't register in my memory.

Morgan is yawning

Morgan wants to get inside, get dry and get in bed.
She is eating, drinking and even produced another poo.
Things are looking up!
But no rocks showed up yet.

I'll try to remember to get a photo later tonight.
But it will be dark so I may wait until tomorrow.

The muzzle works great!
Morgan can sniff and root around under the leaves all she wants
and I don't have to worry she will eat anything.
She's happy. I'm happy.
Makes for a relaxing stress free walk for both of us.

Last walk of the day
Morgan is all ready to go for her late night walk.
It isn't raining for a change but the raincoat will keep the chill away.
I like the way the raincoat keeps the leash attached at the top.
Keeps it from getting tangled under her feet.

Poor Morgan.
The muzzle does look uncomfortable
but she doesn't fight wearing it and has only tried to swipe at it a few times.
And since she can sniff around wherever she wants
wearing the muzzle is not a high price to pay.


Another Day At The Vets

Links to this post
Well, not all day but it felt like it with all the time
driving to and from the vets plus the time spent there.
Morgan had a check up and an x-ray
with another x-ray scheduled for next Saturday.

This was Morgan this morning.
Not chipper at all.
So, I called the vet to find out if I should continue the medication.
She had been recovering from having the anesthetic
until I gave her the medicine.

So the bad news is the rocks are still in her tummy.
The good news is we stopped the medication
and she had a poo!
1st one in 4 days.
Cause for celebration!

And some other good news is that I remembered to ask for another
collar to keep her from licking her foot.
We also stopped at the pet store
(big sale day)
and I got Morgan a new bed with bolster sides.

I set it on top of her old bed
with another little bed on top
and she is very happy.
In fact, she hasn't left it except to eat and go for walks.
I think she had a tiring day too.

I don't think she is enjoying taking walks in all the rain either.
I did get her a new raincoat.
Picture tomorrow...
