We are happy to woof that we survived Tropical Storm Colin - in fact we didn't even notice it as it went over us over night and we just got LOTS and LOTS of rain.
Of coarse everything is now soggy and wet -including us whenever we go outside. Unfortunately our back yard looks a bit like a jungle at the moment as Mom hasn't been able to get out and mow it for the last couple of weeks. See we have a secret about a certain "pain in the butt" issue concerning the Mom. While on vacation on Sanibel Island Mom was constantly kneeling or squatting down to pick up shells and somehow seems to have severely irritated or strained the nerves/muscles/tendons/ligaments (the doctors can't to seem to figure out exactly which) in her right hip and butt. The pain got so bad she even ended up in ER over the weekend and she couldn't walk. They told Mom it could take 6-8 weeks to heal so both Mom and I are kind of hobbling around now - and check out my red sock - it is actually one of those non slip socks they give you in hospital (they gave them Mom) and she found it is perfect for me around the house and stops my foot sliding on our tile floors. I also have a special boot that Mom puts on when I go outside that is water proof. Oh - the Dweeb (Denny) says hi too - he says he has been feeling a little left out lately :)
Just as a side note - We know a few of you have also been concerned that I may have to have my foot amputated if it continues to not heal - my Vet says this is NOT going to happen and in the worse case scenario I may just lose a toe but after yesterdays visit he is much more optimistic that it will heal fine - it is just going to take some time.
