Scottish Weather

It's foggy, chilly and raining here today and Todd thinks that it's perfect Scottish weather and he wants to be outside. I've called him several times to come inside, but he's content to stay right where he is.
The rain is expected to last for the next several days as we await for the effects of Hurricane Joaquin to work its way up the coast.  The latest forecast predicts that it will stay out at sea -- Only time will tell if that prediction is right.
Buddy is still the same.  He feels "okay" for the most part, and is eating some, but is still really picky about what he wants. He was at the vet again yesterday.  Now that we've done x-rays and tried several medications, it's time to go to the next level, and take him for an ultrasound.  I'm hopeful I'll get the approval from the rescue, and be able to take him next week.  Until then, he's on an appetite stimulant, and we're feeding him whatever he wants.
On a positive note, Dusty is much better.  His appetite is fully returned, and he's up and around.  The tumor on his leg isn't feeling warm like it was previously, and the ulceration seems to be healing nicely too.
I'm grateful for your good vibes for both Buddy and Dusty.  I am still worried about them, and I'm hopeful they'll both be okay. On Friday I'm off on a quick dog-less trip to Kentucky.  I'll be back in a few days and just hope all goes well while I'm away.  Paws and fingers crossed that it will be.  See you soon! 


  1. Have a safe and relaxing trip. POTP continues for your boys!

  2. Chilly and dripping here also. Todd is afraid he'll miss something, I suppose. He definitely appears to be in his element! Poor Buddy, I hope there is a fix for the sweet fellow. Happy to hear that Dusty is better, always good to know. Have a safe trip, take care!

  3. be safe on your quick trip. hoping all will be well with the pups. love your tough little moppet.

  4. Another long drive, hope all goes well with you and the crew at home.

  5. Paws crossed everything is okay while you're gone...and both pups keep improving. We're having dry, warm days. Just gorgeous, but Dui loves sitting in the rain, too. Must still be something in their genes.

  6. Hi Kim, Our weather each morning has been very different and we've had fog-which always reminds me of northern Ca. Sending thoughts for Buddy and Dusty. Have a fun trip and be safe.
    Hugs, Noreen

  7. Watch out for the heavy rains and take care.

  8. Evening Kim, hope all is ok while your gone, praying the dogs are fine. Watch for the rains, keep safe,Blessings Francine.

    he just looks like he feels bad... poor guy. i hope he can be helped too.
    you need this break dearest bean.
    godspeed and keep you safe.

    love and hugs.

  10. Safe travels and some pleasant time away . . .
    I will send some positive vibes to the doggies to be good and well while you are away . . .
    (Special vibes for Buddy and Dusty!)

  11. Wishing you safe travels during this bad weather stretch. Paws crossed that the pups continue to feel better and that the ultrasound is approved. Extra hugs to Buddy and Dusty!

  12. Sending POTP for Dusty and Buddy. We'd gladly take your weather - it was 110 here yesterday.

  13. My Porties are like that, they don't even realize that it's raining. Then there's Sebastian who has to be dragged outside and spends his time out hugging the door.

  14. Have a safe trip. I hope that both of your boys improve while you're gone, especially Buddy who really looks like he doesn't feel great. I'm sending POTP for him.

  15. Love and hugs to Buddy and Dusty. Hoping the ultrasound doesn't show anything significant. Buddy doesn't look like he feels well. He has been through so much with his allergies. Poor Baby. Good news for Dusty. I know how you worry about all of your babies.
    That close up of Todd just make one feel good. He is so adorable.
    Safe travels and hoping it is a good trip.

  16. Hope everyone is good and you enjoy your trip !

  17. Sending POTP for your pups that need it...Todd reminds me of my Big Guy, Zippo. He would stay out in rain, snow, ice, sleet, hail, mud...whatever...nothing bothered him! I miss him so!! Hope all is well!

  18. Were keeping good thoughts going too, that they will get better.
    Have a safe trip!

  19. Wishing you a safe trip. Kim. Fingers crossed that Buddy will soon be feeling much better, and looking as happy as all the rest of your family.

  20. sending get well wishes to them both xxx
