Let me start off by saying that our dogs hardly get themselves into trouble. Honestly, it’s a rare occasion.
However, yesterday we came home to something that made our jaws fall to the floor. We came home to find stuffing from Uncle Scott’s “Austin the Octopus” all over the floor. They weren’t in trouble because they tore a toy to pieces and tried to eat the stuffing; they’re dogs so that’s totally understandable. It was because they decided to go on a chewing spree.
They chewed up Gloria’s sunglasses. Mind you, they are NOT cheap. …and this is the 2nd time it has happened. This is the second sunglasses casualty.
Oh, and last weekend, Maui was playing outside, and a bee stung here. She started to itch her face, gag, and cough. Since she seems to be allergic to everything, I just knew that she was having an allergic reaction to the sting. I whipped out the Benadryl that her vet tells me to carry around, and I gave her the proper dosage. The itching and swelling stopped, but her cough did not. We immediately rushed her to a nearby 24 hour pet hospital (it was around 9pm). They told us that Maui had a reaction to the bee sting, so they needed to give her a shot. She’s fine now, but the bank account isn’t. Pet emergencies are never kind to the bank account.
On a better note, the weather has been beautiful, so we’re spending lots of our time outside.
We have been teaching Hilo how to fetch. It’s much easier to teach since we have Maui to demonstrate. As a matter of fact, he’s actually brought it back a couple of times.
We also decided to buy one of those small dog pools to help them keep cool. After some treat prompting, Hilo was drenched. Maui would not even give it a go; she hates getting her feet wet.
As for me, keeping the house clean and running errands, has kept me completely swamped. It’s a good thing that working from home helps me out a lot. …and suprisingly, I’ve had time to get my little craft on. I finished some layouts that I wanted to share with everyone.
I made this layout for the current challenge over at Dream Girls. I love the color combo that they picked, so I had to give it a shot.
My brother, Scott, has been asking me to make a layout of him, so I did. This layout totally cracks me up. Anyway, hope you like it, Scott!
Last but not least, here’s a layout about the dogs! I love how this one turned out. I think this has to be one of my favorite layouts.
Oh, and of course… Happy Father’s Day to all of the wonderful fathers or father figures out there. Not only is my dad my guide, he is also my good friend.
I love you, Dad! Thank you for always being understanding and giving me your support no matter what.
Happy Sunday to everyone!
