Finally Friday and the Trouble With Cardboard

Image
Nothing like waking up to the sound of a bulldog throwing up on your bed! Works better than my alarm clock! I got up like a shot to clean the mess and comfort poor Nala. When I saw what she tossed I was a bit freaked! It was about 5 inches long and brownish in color. My sleepy brain could not figure it out! As I came more to consciousness I realized it was ....cardboard! 

Yesterday Nala was acting a little sluggish...not eating all of her breakfast and just not herself. That evening she seemed ok and I didn't think much of it. Now in hind sight I remember she was chomping on a card board box the day before. She gets great joy running around with it her in mouth and tearing it into pieces! Little did I realize she was swallowing much of it! I guess that's the end of doing that!

She is feeling better and is back to her ole self now. Nothing like a little fiber in your diet .....though make sure it's not the cardboard kind!



Have a wonderful weekend!

Simply Sunday and Take your Medicine!

Ah....., another weekend has sped by! Saturday proved to be a nice spring day where you could get out and really stretch your paws and play! Sunday ..not so much...feels like winter just doesn't want to let go. We are suppose to get a few inches of snow on Tuesday! Yuck!

With the supposed advent of spring you should make sure that your dog has his heart-worm medication monthly. Warm weather is the gateway for mosquitoes which are the culprits behind heart-worm. I give Nala her heart-worm pill year round. If you have taken your pup off heart-worm meds during the winter months you need to renew your medication right away! Call your vet, it may be time for a yearly blood test to check for heart-worm infection.


In the meanwhile have a wonderful week!

Too Bad Tuesday

Nala was hoping I wasn't going to work this morning! What a face!






"Hey, where are you going?"





Thoughtful Thursday

Ahh it smells of spring! Though today one would wonder where it went! It's 20 degrees with blustery bone chilling winds! Don't worry Nala it won't last long!

Finally Friday and Spring Ahead?

Image
So Nala is patiently waiting for this so called spring to arrive. There are still blocks of what I refer to as "snirt" a mixture of snow and dirt, everywhere! Though we did see some daffodil buds pushing their way through out in our front yard!

We have to remember to set our clocks forward one hour Saturday night before bedtime. Also a good time to change batteries on smoke and carbon monoxide alarms as well! This does mean Nala will have to get up an hour earlier in the morning! Not one of her favorite times of day but she will be able to get to her morning nap that much faster!


Have a good weekend all!
