HAPPY BIRTHDAY! O~~~
It's been one of those kinds of busy weeks here Mom is currently into her 2nd week of 6 weeks of rehab trying to get her moving better! She is the most unmotivated 92 y.o. they have, in fact she is the only 92 y.o. they have. She has been in "are we there yet" mode since it began. Her old Dr was a DR she inherited when her Dr retired. I never did like this dude...he never spoke to mom he always wanted ME to talk to him...so finally I got Mom a new Dr a lady in her 50-60's she has real interest and her plan is a good solid one...and included 6 weeks of Physical Therapy for her lower extremities to help her get stronger and have more energy. Mom does not think its necessary I DO so she goes, she has been asking me can she stop going I just say NO...sorry this is for your own good..its easy and physically she aces it....Mentally not so much. I wish the Dr would order a month of Psychotherapy------------------> for ME! HA
SO its July 4th and hot as such!! Happy Independence Day to all of YOU!
I am keeping my sisters Dog for a week while she vacations, and today is Flossie and Annie's birthday so we are celebrating! I found them in Oct of 2008, so counted back 4 months and came up with July 4th as their birthday. Can't believe its been 8 yrs since these Girlz came into our lives--in fact during that time is when Mom's first hip fracture occurred and she ended up in the hospital getting a new hip while I tried to manage 7 new mouths to feed! Yep to start with it was a litter of 7 pups about 4 months of age who got dropped off in our area...I called the dog shelter they did NADA to help me. SO in the end I found home for 5 of the 7 and the last 2 I just ran out of steam and said they can stay here!!
Flossie is what I call Big Sister, if she was a human she would be a Librarian, this gives you a peek into her personality. She is a big girl at 66 lbs, but she is so dainty. She has long hair and so her full name is Flossie Longhair. Here she is at about 4 mos old these poor pups were left to starve and were so thin...we had taken them in about 2 weeks prior to this photo..now she loves to eat and battles being fat! Last yr she tore her ACL trying to run too fast for her conditioning, and I decided to NOT do surgery...she has healed very well, she will limp some if she over does it tho...
She is such a joy to have in my life
Her sister is Annie Boo Bear! She is the alpha of the pack which includes Casey as you all know. I celebrate his birthday on Labor Day since I found him Labor Day weekend in 2014, I have no clue how old he is...
Annie is the opposite of Flossie she gets more anxious over piddly things like if she doesn't get to follow me somewhere she whines, she loves to run, play games, and go hiking. Floss loves to hike also but she always wants to stay on the trail close to me and take frequent breaks...I would say I've neglected these girls getting to go hiking since Floss injured the ACL. Maybe this will be the fall they get to come on some hikes.
If Annie was a human she would be be an Explorer, Lewis, Clark & Annie. She always wants to see whats around the next bend, to chase game, and investigate every scent on the trail. She has never met a stranger, Floss is not too fond of strangers!
Look how happy she is to be in the wilderness exploring. They have never spent one day apart their entire lives...They are best friends and SISTERS through and through...
Happy Birthday Girlz!!
