Square Dog Friday. . . . update

First of all I goofed !
Thursday at 11:15 was his Herbal Body Wrap Day.
We had him trimmed short because it will be over 4 to 6 weeks 
before we can have him groomed again.

Winston has surgery on Monday at 7:15. 

 He comes home and always drinks before I can get a good photo.
If you look at his right leg, you can see the bow and his paw being turned.

 I love this gud (bad bad bad) wee dug.


 So hot ! Saturday is being updated to 117.

After the fire at my home.

Here is your pretty for the start of the weekend.

 It was hard to get a photo of early morning light, it was glowing !

Take care, be well

Square Dog Friday. . . we be here !

First of all I want to Thank all of YOU wonderful Blog Friends, for the concern about
the Bighorn Fire where I live.

I am still in my home in the Foothills of the Catalinas at Ventana Canyon,
with the Gud Dugs and Katties.
We stored art, photos and important papers,  at Daughters home.

So far the fire burning near my home has moved more to the east. It burned for 5 days coming down back up and side to side at the Ventana Canyon ( look at last 2 posts.)The Hot Shot crews did a outstanding job with the fire lines and backburns.
Moving east towards Mt. Lemon 

Thursdays burn at Mt. Lemon. So much smoke 

Smoke over the Catalinas.

Pocket fires still burning, so much smoke.

Smoke over Ventana Canyon.

The Bighorn Fire has grown to 88,046 acres of Friday morning. 33 percent contained. This fire has been burning since  5 June. The foothills are still being patrolled with structural and ground resources available to respond if necessary. 

Scotty Security Patrol is still  available to help the Firefighters.

Winston is being scheduled for Surgery but still working at his Security Job. 

Agatha is on break . It was 106 on Thursday. Very hot, smoke and more smoke.
She needed a break.
Here is a funny for today.

Stay safe and be well !
cheers,  parsnip
