Sunday - 5/30
Last night Ringo had a spell that the Vet feels was "separation anxiety". He's getting close to being 12 and the Vet said that dogs can be like elderly people in that they get very upset if their "caretaker" is absent for too long. It upsets their routine and they have something like a panic attack. We have the doggie door on our deck so the dogs can go in and out as they please, and we've always just left them home when we camp at the lake. We were camping this weekend, and this is the first time it's bothered Ringo. I stayed home with him last night, and even this morning he was still bad and acting really out of it, so I took him in to get checked out.
In the picture above you can see him laying facing away from us. He did that almost non-stop from the time I got home yesterday. The vet said it's his way of dealing with the stress. It's like how if we were to meditate. So, Ringo went to his happy place. :)
The vet put him on an anxiety pill and a pain pill because she said it's possible he has muscles all tight and sore from the stress. Looks like Ringo needs to join me in doing some yoga. ha!
Monday - 5/31
Today we packed up the camper and campsite and brought it home. Unpacking the camper is my least favorite part of camping.
Tuesday - 6/1
Today I took off our comforter and put on this lightweight bedspread. The comforter is heavy and better for cold weather, so it was too hot now when sleeping. As you can see, Tucker approves of the change.
Wednesday - 6/2
I spent the morning uploading and editing 100+ pictures that were taken over the holiday weekend.
Thursday - 6/3
We moved Ashley from the campus dorms to the campus apartments. Poor Jay had the heavy duty job.
While it's nowhere near finished, we did get her new bedroom set up so at least she could sleep in there. She'll finish the rest of it this weekend when she's not working.
I had fun with little items I found while packing...including the school mascot helmet. lol
Friday - 6/4
Ringo was feeling better, so today he took the short walk with me down our gravel road. Actually, he'd run on ahead and then have to sit and wait for me to catch up. lol
Saturday - 6/5
Today I went out to eat with Ashley & a friend of hers. This is a shot of Ashley and her lunch. Mind you, that lunch of steak, potato and applesauce cost around $15.00. Look closely at it...it cracked us up that the applesauce she ordered just came in the container you buy at the store. With what they charged, they didn't even try to make it look like they made it...didn't even plop it in a dish. We were like 'ok then'. LOL
