To make it look like Christmas.

10 December

Not a very Christmas video but I love to hear the crunching.
fud fud is gud
iwinston is liken' fud

The last Christmas photo with thehamish.
He was a tank with a heart of gold.


We have had some rain off and on in the last few days.
The air is cold and crisp for Tucson but lots of sunshine.

 Winston loves the cool weather and stays out in it as much as he can.
He will curl up on almost anything to watch or sleep.

it is iwinston who is lookin' gud

Here is your Monday pretty.
Last summer my Christmas cactus was looking droopy and I put it outside 
to fluff up and get some fresh air, some water and neglect. It is doing fabulous.

Best laid plans

I was going to post a Christmas photo possibly everyday .
Have my Christmas card done ready to mail, packages ready to post.
Stuff happens.

Why I have brought this up today is some very upsetting health problems have come up.

Truffles is daughters dog who is living with me right now.
When daughter adopted her, Truffles
was tossed out of a car and could not use her back legs because of a back injury. 
She was not adoptable in this condition.
Daughter was working at the Humane Society in the clinic, when the vet was going to 
euthanize her. Molly looked at her and Truffles was wagging her tail.
 Molly took her home. 
Truffles had a very hard and sad life till Daughter took her home. 
Can you say luxury of  love, good food and fluffy pillows.

Last year she has a cancerous growth on her leg removed. It has grown back, bigger.
The oncologist wants to remove her front leg and start chemo.. This is not an option 
for Truffles with the back injury, leg problems and her age.
She has also started seizures. Monday she had 3 within a few hours and
last night she had two. Now is on meds three times a day,  6am, 2pm and 10pm.
She also is almost completely deaf and lost most of her eyesight. 
Everyday she wakes up happy and loves to wander around the yard wagging her tail.
She is even playing abit with Winston and Agatha. Lays in the sun a sniffs the breezes.
She is a sweetheart and is such a Princess to us.

 That is her bad leg.
Sleeping with me as I am trying to take a photo.
Yes, I am spoiling her.

  A favorite photo just enjoying the day

woof !
See the waggie tail and part of a box iwinston had destroted.
Life is so good.

3 December.

Last week we had a downpour rainstorm one night.
No lighting or thunder just a downpour.

About 2 am Agatha leaps up jumps over Truffles and Winston and lands
a few inches from my head, shaking and making a funny sound. At first I thought she was 
throwing up or had another seizure. I grabbed her and covered her with my blanket. 
Winston is sniffing her head and Truffles is sleeping through it all.
Turned on the TV real low and turned on a low light so it was not really dark
but still raining hard.
She started to calm down and sleep. Later she moved next to Winston and Truffles.
I assume the horder kept her outside in the pouring rain. She had a rough night.
We are still learning/finding out about our Agatha.

It is hard to see but Agatha, Winston and Truffles all curled up together.
The next day. . . 



iwinston loves the cold and wet.
Just sitting in the rain.


As always here is your pretty to start the week.

 So beautiful.
I love persimmons.

iwinston is knowin' something
nice tall person with treats is comin'

cheers,  parsnip
