Much Better Days


What a difference a week makes.  This time last weekend this black and white was still not doing well.  I thought we were going to lose her, for sure. She started rallying about Tuesday and as of today, is back to her old, formerly-annoying-now-we-don't-mind-them, habits.  Poaching the cat food, endless asking to play fetch and not sleeping 24/7.  Yay!

It had to have been the presence of her two nurses last weekend that sparked this turnaround.


Yes, I know, they don't exactly look like a good 'ICU' care team, but surely they brought some feline healing vibes with them.


Meanwhile Sadie, who decided this month was a good time to get worms, went in for her second de-worming shot at the vet:



Wait....wha????


That's the oddest Boston I've ever seen!!


Pepper, the pig was in for a 7 month check up. 
This IS California, y'all.

Speaking of pigs....
We took in some Orange County Fair sights last night:

Pepper?
  Are you in there?


Some solid black and white representation here.
Ewe get it?
Get it?
Ewe?
You....
?


Not to mention some Bovine black and white cuteness:



Always looking for good ideas for my new hobby, succulents.


So... as Dexter advised Mr. T, earlier in the week.
"It's gonna be okay, man. Panda's got at least nine lives in her too."


Hope your days are going better too!

And special thanks to my bloggy friend,   Linda, at Itsy Bits and Pieces.           . 
We talked 'short-nosed dog' issues via email and FB in the last couple of weeks, just hearing her experiences with the lovely Bailey, helped us out a lot.

Wow ~ one adventure after another. What a time at the vets. What a time at the OC Fair. Looks like the nurses at the Boston Manor can get a few days off after all that work taking care of Ms, Panda . That should be enough excitement to last 3/ 4 days ? ??

Ann,
I'm happy to read that Panda is feeling much better now. I'm sure this was a scare, and for her too.
Thanks for visiting me at the blog, I love hearing from you, and every post here is a treasure.
Hugs,
Brenda

A pig? How did that come about?. They are healthy creatures.
Hope all is well over there this week.

So glad that Panda is doing better. Hope she continues to stay that way!
The pig didn't even have a leash on, was it trained really well. Glad you enjoyed the fair. Have a wonderful week. Debby

Glad all is getting better! I think when I was in your state you guys were having a heat wave. Geeze, 97 degrees and soooo humid. But we had a blast and love your Cally palm trees! You guys take care! Kit

Hi Ann! I am back to blogging regularly now, I think! Been gone from Blog world for about 4 months. Trying to catch up with everyone. Just read your last two posts about Panda. What a fright that must have been. Bless her heart!
How is The Maven doing these days. I think of you now, too every full moon. Special words sent your way every month! If anything has happened in last four months that you would care to share with me, I would love to get an email from you with any updates, etc. Take care!! Hugs, Robin
