Tired on Tuesday!

It's been months since my last posting! My old laptop finally gave in and froze up, where it still remains in a cryogenic coma under my bed! My new Lenovo is quite nice but I am still trying to master the learning curve of Windows 10!

In the meanwhile Nala and Sylva are fine! The summer past by like a wink of an eye and here we are staring down at October..just about! We went to the vet last week for a double appointment. Nala had her wellness check up and Sylva was due for his distemper shot. We made a late evening 8:10 PM appointment which worked out well. No one was there in the waiting room and the two of them had the run of the place! Of course we had our side issues, Nala had an infected face wrinkle and Syl his usual belly dermatitis. They were well behaved patients though and received several treats for their good behavior! Hey no matter what happens at the veterinarians stays at the veterinarians ...once you get the treats the bad stuff is all behind you!

Hope to see you all back here ...same bulldogs same blog!

New Look Thursday

I haven't posted in a way long time so I decided with a new post should come a new look! I am trying this new theme that blogger recently introduced to see how it flows and any comments are welcomed. 

So we are greeting a new season, spring is upon us! At last free from winters harshness the doggies are out on the deck and sunning themselves in all their glory! Whoa wait though ...so come the seasonal allergies. Turns out that Sylva is very allergy prone. Hot spots erupt all over his skinny body! Not that Nala is immune to this, she does get an occasional rash. My friend who knows her dogs recommended using chamomile tea to relieve their itch. I am not suggesting having tea late in the afternoon on grandma's porch but brewed tea in a spray bottle ! I have 3 teabags currently steeping in two cups of hot water! Once it cools down I will fill up my spray bottle and try it out. Worst case if it doesn't work out, it's all natural and can't do any harm other than make them want some crumpets! I will check in and let you know how it works out! Here is a link to some info on the benefits of chamomile for dogs. http://www.dogsnaturallymagazine.com/german-chamomile-a-bit-of-herbal-sunshine-for-you-and-your-dog/

Happy Easter and Happy Passover all!


Nala and Sylva

Sunshine on my shoulder makes me happy!

Thursday, Snow Day!

So the ongoing foster failure and adoption of Sylva is going well. He has found his place and Nala is all good with him. Though they don't actually play together they do harmoniously exist side by side. Sylva is a aggressive chewer and will gleefully chew on a rubber ball all day! Nala is the passive observer and still maintains sole ownership of the living room couch! 

Today we had at least a half foot of snow or more that caused schools and most businesses to close in the New York city tri-state area. It always looks pretty from the inside out but when the storm is over and you have to dig out ...well it's not so pretty then.

Nala and Sylva like to run laps in the fresh snow but it's always a quick out and in for them!

Here is Nala giving us her fastest sprint to date! Enjoy!
