Ending on a Good Note

A quite week for us, that for me, was a welcomed respite.
We had a light snowfall this morning. It was just enough to cover the icy snow from last weekend and cause numerous cancellations.  The local weathermen have been bragging on the news all day that they got this latest storm correct.  Considering how many times they get it wrong, I can see why they are perhaps feeling good about their forecast this time.
After working this morning, I think I've gotten something right too, a non eventful afternoon spent at home with the dogs.
~Todd and Josh, "if we come in, will we get a treat?"~
I was somewhat concerned when I got back from Kentucky and Gus was having a bit more trouble getting around and needed more help getting to his feet. The snow hasn't made it any easier for him. Even though I had labeled and organized all the pills for the dogs before I left, because I left in a bit of a rush, I didn't get the chance to refill a couple of them before I left town. With all that was happening while there, I forgot all about them.    
~Sleepy Gus~
I'd also forgotten to include Gus's daily supplements, so he was not given those while I was out of town. Now nearly a week later, Gus is back on all his medications and the supplements.  Thankfully today he is getting up and around much easier and is even following us around the house.  
~Gus wrapped in a warmed towel after being outside in the cold~
 That has our day ending on a good note. 


  1. Gus says, "DRUUUUUUGS-YESSSSSS!!!!!". Todd is hanging his head in disagreement.

  2. sweetheart gus. :) glad you have had some quieter days.

  3. Yay for Gus. His eyes tell the story of a very warm and sweet heart. I'm glad you had a relaxed afternoon with the pups, and I love that bird photo with the snow falling around it.

  4. Glad to hear Gus is doing better and you had a good week.

  5. Gus is so special, and I'm glad he is doing better, I cannot imagine living with all that snow round about, we would need to move way down South for that.

  6. Great way to end the week. We're happy all the medication has been straightened out and Gus is feeling better. Hope you're all set to continue with a quiet weekend.
