Another weekend has come to an end. Our friend from Pennsylvania came for a couple of days, and we could not have enjoyed her visit any more. At the moment, "Sid" is dog-less, and she said that she needed a "dog-fix" --so where is a better place to come than our house? The dogs absolutely adore "Sid," Even Charlie put his babysitting duties with the kitten aside for her visit. He is crazy about Sid, and even goes as far as sleeping with Sid at night.
Todd made me proud by (again) remembering his manners and more than once came to Sid for attention.
Our friend may have come for a dog-fix, but I had something else in mind for her visit. On Saturday we were off to West Virginia to an Apple Festival. It was day of apples...
Apples of just about every kind -- Some varieties I'd not heard of.
and many, many more waiting to be picked. We chatted with someone from the orchard, and he told us that for every tree that he picks an apple from, he takes a bite from one apple. That's a lot of bites!
And if you wanted something besides apples, there were lots of varieties of pumpkins to choose. These "warty pumpkins" were interesting.
You could even "smooch da pooch" to help a local rescue.
It was a good day spent with a good friend. The good energy from the weekend must have rubbed off on Dusty, who is definitely feeling better. His appetite seems stable, and he's up and around more.

Buddy lost his appetite a few days ago. Nothing I could give him, could get him to take as much as a nibble. So I cooked ground beef, and added a couple of scrambled eggs and pasta, topped with cheese for good measure. It worked, and he's eaten the last two meals. But he's turning his nose up at kibble or anything dog-food. I'm trying to stay positive that Buddy is at least eating, and I just hope we can figure this out sooner rather than later.
