Stayed up late rootin' for the Longhorns last night. Might need a nap today. And yes, there was a small amount of beer involved.

They get along pretty well. She's fearless, and he's cautious. He's had to give her a loud 'leave me alone bark" a couple of times, and she's learning. She's still really little compared to his rotundness. DD calls him a chonky-tonk, so he can stand to lose a pound or two, and with all the new activity he's be fit very soon.

"Chonky-tonk"...how funny :) Are you keeping up w/the two of them pretty well, Mom?

Groomed Chloe today, brushed her teeth, shored her hair up a bit, shaved her feet for toenail clipping @ the vet Tuesday (just impossible for me to do it anymore) + gave her a bath. Normally don't like to stress her out all in one day so I spread it out.


So in the utility room tub she goes...AND she groaned & cried a little. Broke my heart. I go as fast as I can.

Image



All done

Image


She's not happy & this is the face I don't like, but it gets even worse & scrunched up when I try to brush her teeth. Like she's getting ready to growl & bite. Today those jaws were locked tight. She was not having any part of tooth brushing besides getting several treats, but I managed. Down to once/week brushing, however a treat before squirting daily Dentahex oral rinse seems to help keep placque buildup down. She hates that stuff too, but tolerates it much better w/a treat beofrehand. Otherwise she fights it & afraid I was going to squirt her in the eye. It's just really, really tough...have to be creative. At 17 she just wants to be left alone except for the fun stuff. All I can do is space grooming further apart. That bare spot on her snoz is where she had a tick a few years back. Trazadone is not working to relax her a bit. Soon as you start messing w/her she's on "all alert", shivers & shakes like a cartoon character. Skip over that dirty towel, it's in the laundry :oops:

Prescott last weekend, felt nice to get out of the 100 degree temps and into the mountains (mile above sea level). Had a family of Javelina’s stroll through the backyard. These aren’t pigs, they have more in common with Rodents, look it up!

Those look like the body of a pig, head of an anteater. Definitely not a family pet.


How about a little food porn? My favorite summertime dish of garden-fresh zucchini & tomato stir fry served over a bed of jade pearl rice. Just finished the last of it tonight. Yummy.
