We got home from vacation and are now trying to recuperate, lol. Most people don't vacation like we do, in fact I think most of you would jump out of the car by day 2. We are up at the crack of dawn (or before on this trip - 5am) and keep going quickly until after dark (9-10pm this trip). When we hike a trail it's as quickly as possible as there are other trails to see, we are full steam ahead our entire trip. We eat in the car while zipping from place to place, finally getting dinner after dark, when we're ready to stop for the night - some days that was the only meal we ate. No wonder we crash when we hit home.
I tend to have a problem with allergies every single time we leave Wisconsin, no matter where we go. :( And this time you can add in the altitude. We were continually above 6000 feet for about 4 days and 3 nights. The third night I could hardly breathe. I felt like the goldfish I've seen on those asthma billboards, gasping for every breath.
As we descended I felt the band around my chest loosen, and breathing became a little less effort. I'm stubborn and wouldn't see a doctor until we got home and by now I have a upper respiratory infection. Trying to get over it and gain some strength back.
I thought by now I would be catching up with all of you, should be able to today, my brain just isn't quite back up to par, lol. I have started picking through the photos for my 5 year posts and hope to start those today too. Bear with me, eventually I'll be back to normal.
Our son called Sept 10th to let us know that Fibi had a puppy. We diaper both dogs when she's in heat and let them outside individually, we've been successful, until this last heat cycle. Not sure what happened, but I never saw any action so I think maybe it happened on my son's watch. I did notice her heat seemed to be shorter than normal, but I thought it was because she's getting older. And a few weeks ago we noticed her nipples seemed swollen but I thoroughly felt and listened and we decided maybe a false pregnancy.
Well, this false pregnancy came with a puppy surprise, lol. Just the one pup, probably why I couldn't feel it, or hear it, even the week before she was born.
She's a little girl and these photos were taken when she was 2 days old, just quickly snapped. Hopefully I'll get to take lots of nice photos of her between now and when she goes to her forever home. I'm sure we'll find her a nice home. Oh and she's a Lhasa Apso
