.....since I looked at this face that was in a cage at the local animal shelter. I was "smitten" at the first look, the way she put her head on one side like she was hearing every word I said, the way she sat at my feet & leaned into to me. I knew she was special.
There is a saying in my sidebar.....Dogs are not our whole life but they make our lives whole.
This dog makes our lives whole!
I was trying to get a shot to compare with that first day.
She was having no part of it....wouldn't even look at me!
I get out of work on Thurs at 1:00 & usually play golf with my buddy Dominic. Yesterday was kinda rainy, blustery so we decided not to play. I headed up to the mall but got side-tracked on the way. One of the things on my extremely long to-do list was "get two more tires for my car". I pulled into Mavis Tire & checked to see how long it would take.
I was told around 20 mins before my car would get in so I decided to wait.
About an hour later my overly friendly mechanic wants to show me something.....how did I know it wasn't going to be pretty! My rear "struts".....whatever they may be.... were leaking causing the rear end to lift up when I braked causing my car to "pigeon toe" which in turn was making my new tires .....that were put on the front wheels in August......to wear unevenly. As if that wasn't enough for my brain to digest one of the front wheels had a bad wheel bearing.
After a long winter I went back to work on Thurday & as usual it was crazy with the phone ringing off the wall! The weather wasn't that great but golfers in the northeast are like caged animals who are finally free! We had good weather predicted for the weekend & I was scheduled to work both days. After a very long day Saturday I finally got done around 8 pm & was meeting Popster & Jess in Ballston Spa at a surprise birthday party for Jeff & Colby. Jess met me in the parking lot & said she was leaving as she had also worked all day. She showed me her arm where she had been bitten by a cat earlier at work. She had gone to urgent care & they gave her antibiotics & she went back to work.
Before I left for work Sunday at 5:30am I woke her up to look at it & didn't like the way it was swelling up. I told if it didn't look better when I got home at lunch we were going back to urgent care.
