It’s been raining all day and Belle hasn’t liked it one bit!  She spent the entire time from the afternoon to the evening visit under your bed.  She’s in her playpen now, but I did consider pulling her out and letting her go back under the bed as she seemed most comfortable there.  Bleu hasn’t liked this weather much either.  She certainly doesn’t like being alone with all the thunder as she never wants me to leave.  I think she would hug my legs to keep me from leaving if she could.  🙂

Idgy’s doing great.  His ear looks awesome.  Not much more to say about him.  He’s a trooper!  🙂

It’s been raining all day long with mostly sporadic thunder/lightening…until this evening.  I guess the heart of the storm has rolled in and it’s continuous thunder/lightening now.  So, Kenai is now showing some stress.  I’ve closed the kitchen blinds to mute the flashes of lightening, but I can’t do anything about the thunder.  She seems to be nervously drinking a lot of water, so I may have a mess to clean up tomorrow a.m.  It’s okay though.

Today has been all rain.  Boo!  But we did need it…and there is a lot of flash flooding going on out there….and you know how Riverside gets when it’s flooding.  Sheesh!  I was glad my car made it through at 41st.  Yikes!  That was deep.

The pups are doing well.  Stella is asking for lots of belly rubs now and I’m happily supplying those for her.  Oreo just stares and stares, but he really is much calmer now.  No more fear whining for him and he even went outside for me!  Woo-hoo!  He’s NEVER done that before.  He’s a tough cookie!  🙂

The pups and kitty are doing fine….well, Cricket wanted out earlier and it’s storming now, so there’s no sign of her again.  I tried to tell her the storm was coming.  🙂

Because of the storm, the pups are getting their business done as quickly as possible.  Imagine that!  Lilly finally ate more than just a few morsels of food tonight.  I guess she finally got hungry enough.  I think the mole hill has finally been forgotten, but I didn’t get the dirt shoveled back in before this rain hit.  🙁  My bad.

Mud face!


Cricket came back this afternoon.  Whew!  I got a little worried when I passed a dead kitty on 81st coming in, but it was black.  I knew it wasn’t her, but I got alarmed all the same.  Anyway, she’s now in the garage.  Good place for her, since it’s raining again.  Ugh!

Let’s talk about Gus.  There was a freshly dug mole or gopher hill, spotted by them during the afternoon visit.  Terriers being terriers, I’m sure you know that Gus is now digging a huge hole and nothing seems to deter him.  Lilly could care less, Abby was slightly interested, but GUS is obsessed!!!  True to his breed, huh!  Other than this, things have gone well.  Sometimes there is an accident; sometimes not.  It’s no big deal.  I just clean it up and move on.

Things are going really well.  Bleu has just been a bundle of wiggles every time I arrive.  Idgy has that excited throat clearing sound and well, Belle’s always a bundle of wiggles.  🙂  Idgy’s ear looks really good still and takes his med’s like a pro.  I finally learned the secret for ensuring Belle takes hers…put the cheese in her food.  If I try to give it to her, she shies away.  Hey, whatever works, right?

No new pic today.  I was fairly lazy about taking photos and not really sure why.  As always, the girls are doing great.  No accidents and very happy to see me.  The storms did move out for most of the day (just drizzle all day long), but now there’s lightening again this evening.  Oh…I can hear the rain really coming down now…but there’s no lightening that I can tell.  I think Kenai will be okay for the evening.

Haley’s doing well.  She took all her medications today with no problem.  We didn’t take any walks though.  The drizzly weather deterred us.

Out of all the pictures of pets I didn’t take today, I did take one of Stella…then lost it when I re-named it.  Oh sweet.  It was a picture depicting her in her regular leash and not the slip lead.  You’ll just have to take my word for it.  I knew she would the first one to crack and she is doing awesome.  Tail wagging and lots of trust coming from her.  Oreo is improving as well.  Most notably, he actually accepted a treat from me tonight!  Just once though.  He also joined us in the kitchen for dinner, instead of sitting like a statue on the couch.  He so wants to trust, but hasn’t quite taken the final plunge yet.  Big improvement though!

Sorry there’s no pic tonight.  I’m sorry to hear about her hot spot.  🙁  I hate when our furry friends hurt.  I did give her the antibiotic tonight, even though I quickly figured out it’s best to put each pill in a separate pill pocket.  Silly me.  She was sweet as always and we even had a span of no rain to complete our walk.  😀
