True, but too much rain can be depressing. I love it when I can open the windows! Enjoy it for the both of us!

At least your getting rain! I can't wait for rain! It is starting to cool off some, and today is the 1st day in, forever that I have been able to open the windows because the air quality has been from hazardous to unhealthy. This is the first day I have been able to open the windows in a long time! Now if we just get some rain.

We're (Sassy and I) are doing fine. We're having rainy afternoons down here in southern Louisiana. It's still to hot to take Sassy for a walk. emoticon I can't wait for cooler weather!

I had a huge scare last week with my youngest dog, Sharona, 2 yo Boston Terrier/ Chihuahua mix. While walking the dogs a week ago Friday, she stared peeing blood tinged urine. It became down right red by the time we finished. She didn’t seem in distress - I called the vet for an appointment, but they were booked up that day & I got an appointment for last Saturday. By that time, she was peeing dark solid red. Yikes! Now, common things are common. I was an ER nurse, so I knew that. We elected to go the conservative route with antibiotics for a urinary tract infection (UTI). When the vet came back to the exam room, Sharona had peed again. Doc took one look at that & did a CBC. Sharona ‘s platelets (that help your blood clot) was 20K - normal is 80K. She was having spontaneous bleeds. We were referred to a specialist Vet hospital - after lab work & Xrays, they said it looked like ITP (mmune thrombocytopenia, an autoimmune disease people can get, too). I had to leave her overnight. She got IV fluids, an anti cancer infusion, & steroids. I visited her that evening in the canine ICU. Now, this is my fear-biter, freaks out at everything dog. I was so afraid she was going to die during the night - either bleeding out or having a stress-induced stroke. In the morning they called & said she was so improved she could go home - on oral steroids & anticancer meds twice a day. She was so happy & so was I! She’s eating like a pig (steroids do that), but, if I hadn’t witnessed the episode, you’d think nothing had happened. Her repeat labs on Wednesday came back with a higher than usual platelet count. She’s still on the meds (in peanut butter - she thinks it’s a treat) & gets rechecked in about a week.

I stayed home with the windows shut and the AC on , a fan on, and the music on, so the noise from the fireworks was just part of everything else. I wouldn't leave the Cooper-dog on the 4th of July to suffer the noise alone!

So sorry to read that,it must be hard to watch! I have never had a dog bothered by fireworks, thunder or guns. Pretty mellow, all of them, unless you are keeping their toy away from them.

My 4th was quiet and spent at home cept for a quick trip to a small local park for the dog. We barbequed hamburgers. Could easily hear the fireworks, but now that the DD is grown I no longer have to go to such things (I hate the crowds & traffic).

Mine was a nervous wreck, I swear she was having an anxiety attack! Panting hard, her heart felt like it was pounding out of her chest and oh my goodness did she shake! The first day I tried to comfort her, on the 4th I didn't and she wasn't as bad? Go figure?

It was a rainy one here. But it quit in time to have the fireworks display on the river. I could see it from my kitchen window. My Sassy was a total wreck though.

Well... I had injections at the neurologist's office this morning, and had to get a shot this afternoon at the clinic, so... I am feeling a bit poked and prodded.

Hey small dog people! How is your weekend going? Any exciting plans? I went to yard sales yesterday and found some very nice clothes to wear as I lose weight! I love yard sales!
