Scottie Comic Relief

Carl has been out of town all week visiting his brother in the state of Washington.  He decided that instead of flying, he would take the Amtrak train across the country.  A nearly 4 day trip.  There are people that think this would be great fun, however, I am not one of them.  He made it to Washington, and said the trip while a long one, was one he enjoyed.  I guess that's what matters.

On the homefront, I have to admit, that its not been the best week for us. Sunny developed a large lump on his chin.
Getting in touch with and arranging a time with our new "mobile vet" proved to be a bit of a challenge. We were finally able to meet him in a parking lot.  Mobile Vet doesn't think it's tooth related, but rather from an injury on his cheek that's gotten infected.  Sunny thanked Mobile Vet for seeing him by snapping at him.  Mobile Vet returned the gesture by giving Sunny 2 antibiotics that are upsetting his stomach. But the medications are working, and the lump is much smaller.

Not to be outdone Jake also has an upset stomach.  I'm not sure what's caused it.  But after a couple of nights of letting him outside several times, along with a bland diet I can tell he's feeling better.  

Usually single-parenting and dogs with upset stomachs aren't a problem.  However, I was also pretty under the weather this last week and stayed home from work.  Something I never do.
However, today I am finally feeling better -- But how could I not with this kind of Scottie-comic-relief?

What would we do without Todd?


  1. Todd is quite the silly boy, isn't he? Ouch, Sunny's sore - if you lived here I would think snake bite or something of that ilk. Think some kind of stomach bug is being passed around with the mail or whatever. One of my boys had a bug this past week. Carl's vacation is nearly half over isn't it? I imagine you are growing tired of the lonely game.

  2. aww. cute little impish todd! your poor boys. glad they're doing better, and glad carl enjoyed the train trip there!

  3. That's what we said about Kyla and we still don't know 16 months later.

  4. One of our girls has been quite ill with a stomach bug all week, too, and we have made regular trips to the vet - sometimes twice a day. She now seems to be on the mend, but is still on her special gastrointestinal kibble for a few more days.
    Poor Sunny, we hope that he, Jake, and yourself, Kim, soon recover. We're sure Todd and his antics will cheer us all up !

  5. Oh No!
    When it rains, it pours.
    But glad to read you are all on the mend.
    and Thank Goodness for cutie-pie Todd!

  6. I hope all feel better soon . Glad your hubs had a nice trip . Oh my Todd is so much like Miggs . Lovely photos . Thanks for sharing , have a good day !

  7. glad you are all getting better and that you have Todd to cheer you up
    Mr Bailey, Hazel & Mabel

  8. Oh Todd,, you really know all the tricks to entertain, and make us all feel better.
    Were glad everyone at Golden Pines,, is getting to feel a little better,, Upset tummys are no fun,,, not even for yourself.

  9. Oh Todd! You're the best for fun! I have to take probiotics everyday and I eat a charcole cookie after every meal as I have a sensitive tummy, too. Mom is always worried about me.


  10. Sounds like you've had quite the week.
    I hope you, Sonny and Jake are feeling better . . .
    Thank goodness Todd has kept the mood fun and lively!

  11. I'm glad that everyone is on the mend (including you, I hope). I find it almost impossible to take good care of my dogs when I'm a single parent with a migraine... so I totally get it.

    Todd is a hoot! I love his energy and zaniness!

  12. Glad you and Sunny are doing better. Todd is all scottitude, we love him.

    Aroo to you,

  13. What a week. It never rains but it pours.

  14. Todd is such a riot! All Scottie! I hope everyone else is feeling better...and you too! Single parenting is tough when you don't feel well. Cheers to everybody feeling back to normal!!

  15. Hello, Todd is cute playing with the sprinkler. I am glad you are feeling better and I hope Sunny and Jake feel better soon. A train trip across the country sounds interesting. Happy Sunday, enjoy your new week ahead!

  16. So sorry you were all under the weather, but glad things are turning around now. That sure is a pretty picture of Sunny.

  17. Hope you and the pack are all feeling better soon. Todd made us laugh!

  18. afraid i'm with carl on the train thing.
    a 4 day trip! reminds me of the 3 day trips i took as a child to new york. oh... to get to got to the dining car! such wonderful memories!
    i hope you're better now dearest bean.
    when YOU get sick and are the only one there... it would be like mother hubbard getting sick. still many mouths to feed and to let in and out! even when you feel awful.
    we can only imagine it. well. CINDI KNOWS IT TOO!!!
    you both are just a marvel.
    and todd... there is none other.
    CUTIE PIE PERSONIFIED!!! i love his facebook page!!!

  19. All paws crossed for Sunny and Jake to be well. And thank dogness for Todd - he reiminds Mom of Lightning, always there to provide some smiles with their silly ways:)

    Woos - Ciara and Lightning

  20. Haha. So many dogs love to play in sprinklers. ^_^
    So sorry to hear that so many have been ill. Hoping you all get well soon, Kim. God bless. ♥

  21. Do you live near Harper's Ferry? We used to go there all the time when we lived in Maryland.

    It feels like it's about time to get our sprinkler out too. The dogs love to attack it.

  22. Oh Todd, you crack us up!!! Ryker likes to play with the hose. And Yes, I love Rie Munoz's works, they are so much fun. But I would want to pay you something for them.

  23. Todd you are a comedian at heart, and full of energy !
    Glad to read the Goldie's are doing better, it can be so worrying when they are not feeling their best.
    Hope you have a wonderful week Kim !

  24. Evening Kim, hope Sunny and Jake is feeling better. Oh that crazy Terrier Todd, makes me smile .Hugs Francine.

  25. Life would be so boring without our canine comic relief. Walter is often our comedian.

  26. Todd is one in a million! Hope you and the pups are doing well.

  27. Everyone needs a Todd in their life! ;-) Mobile Vet? I did not know that even existed. Very interesting. Sunny, Gracie would have done the same thing.. Feel better soon <3
