Fields of Gold

Another busy week is over, and we have a busy weekend ahead.
Our newest addition, Max went to the vet for an evaluation and treatment plan.  We've decided on acupuncture, cold laser therapy and medications for the first two weeks to see how it goes.
Max has settled into his new life and routine. He's a nice boy, that is affectionate, and is always willing to give you his paw, lick your hand or face, or whatever he can reach.  He is still a little growly when our dogs get to close to him.  But I'm okay with that, because the dogs seem to be okay with it.
I took Friday off of work to get a few things done.  But I ended up with a little spare time in the morning, so I packed up Sheba, picked up a good friend and we went over to Maryland to see the sunflower fields.
Most of the bigger sunflowers are past their peak blooms.
And I know they are nowhere close to the magnificent sunflower fields in France.
But I do love the golden sunflowers.
They are really beautiful and I'm glad my friend and I were able to go and see them this year.
We'll be mostly inside this weekend because of the high heat.
And tomorrow is a bittersweet day when a new chapter begins for one of our pups.  I'll tell you about it on Sunday.  Enjoy your weekend!

  4. And we bet there will be a lot of very happy birds with those seed-filled sunflowers.

    It's hot here too - we are inside just about all the time.

  12. I suspect this hot sunny weather has been perfect for the sunflowers. They are indeed lovely. As are the dogs.

  13. Great to know Max is settling in and treatment may help him.
    Love the sunflowers. Spotted fields of them while watching le Tour de France during the week. Absolutely beautiful and special for me as my favourite colour is yellow.

  18. Mom thinks Max is a good looking dog but not as handsome as Todd. I was good to see Sheba.

    Aroo to you,
