This is a little squeaky toy that I got Pup for Christmas. I've never seen him act this way with any other toy. He has lots of toys and a few favorites, but this one is certainly special to him. He carries it around all the time and will hardly put it down. He likes to put it on the back of the sofa sometimes and he will leave it there. Then he'll go back and carefully get it down again. When he goes outside I have to take it out of his mouth. He must think that this is his "baby." He gets it very gently and rarely ever makes it squeak.
I also went back to the vet yesterday and got Pup refills on his antibiotics. He has started that horrible sneezing again and I sure don't want him getting sick like he was before. Of all the things that I have found to get him to take his pills, putting it in some BBQ pork does the trick. I tried him with Vienna sausage and deli turkey and those wouldn't work. I guess the BBQ has such a strong odor that he can't smell the medication at all?! Beats me, but I'm so glad it works!
We have had a couple of cold nights. I think last night it was in the single digits with the wind chill making it worse. My neighbor called me and asked me if I could cut her water off at the meter since her lines had frozen up overnight, even though she had left them dripping. At the time she called me the social worker that comes from the VA was here to see my husband. I told her I'd do it as soon as she left, which I did. The meter is right beside the road and you have to get on your knees and bend over in that hole that houses the meter and turn it off with a wrench. It's not the easiest thing to do with not much space in there to work. I always dread it when cars go by because there I am with my head and arms down in that hole and my big behind sticking up there for them to see. Now that surely must be a frightening sight. I should put a sign on it to apologize that says, "Sorry folks."
