7.19.13 Follow Up Friday: Home Is Where the Pets Are

19 Jul

Today is Follow-up Friday hosted by Jodi from Heart Like A Dog.  This is where we review the week behind so that we can launch into the week ahead (or something like that).

Sofie Louise July 2013

We finally arrived home after an 8 1/2 hr drive from the Carolina’s in torrential rain.  It wasn’t fun.

We started our blog week back with a picture K8 took of the alligator behind our rental on our last morning in Sunset Beach, North Carolina.  He was perfect for Mischief Monday, don’t you think?

By Tuesday we were settling back into the home and blog routine and we featured a lovely senior, named Steven, on Tuesday’s Tail Adoption Blog Hop

Louise was so excited to see me when I returned home (they were on vacation at Sonya’s) that she scratched the heck out of my leg.  Ouch! She did not mean it, but those lab talons are wicked sharp.

Before we left I had noticed that Louise was licking herself a lot.  Sonya, the most wonderful dog sitter in the world, called me while we were away to let me know that Louise had a cut in a very uncomfortable spot.  Well, when I got home, it did not look good, so…  off we went to Dr. Kate.  Louise was not happy.  Now she is on antibotics and is suppose to wear the cone of shame, but, I am keeping her with me and monitoring her licking, so that she does not have to go through the same humiliation that her silly little sister, Sofie, just finished going through last month.  Sofie, of course, would not stop licking, Louise, is a good listener.

On Wordless Wednesday,  Noel was wondering what special presents I brought from the beach.  I did give her a shell, but she just ignored it.  At least she did not scratch me.  Nine is terrorizing her and even Stella seems to be getting into the act.  What I don’t understand is why she doesn’t just sit on both those little cats and crush them, but she doesn’t.  Ah, the life of an Alpha.

Finally on Thankful Thursday,  I was able to thank Magdalena Vandenberg for giving me the wonderful Very Inspiring Blogger Award.  I received it when I was away.  What a nice return present.

It has been hotter than an oven since we returned so I am going out today to get the dogs a baby pool.  We all need to cool off in the DOG DAZ (days) of summer.

That’s it for the week. Thanks for playing along with us.  Check out the hop below and you can go play with others.

Just another DogDaz morning at the zoo ❤

    When Mom came home from the hospital yesterday I did not scratch her. I jumped up on her shiny new knee CAREFULLY. Maybe later, I will give her a welcome home scratch….. We can’t wait to see pictures of the new baby pool! Yay!

    Love and licks,

    Louise sounds sensible like me. Mom can’t stand us wearing those cones, so she taught me no lick and it usually works and she keeps me around her. I have only had something where a cone was supposedly necessary twice, but I am good at no lick.
