By the end of the week, I was exhausted to say the least.
Carlos and I had a lazy weekend. It was cold here in North Carolina, and though we did get a couple of things done, we mainly spent time inside. I got to catch up on reading my magazines: 2 Better Homes and Gardens, 2 Oxygen, 1 Clean Eating, 1 On Fitness and 1 do it yourself. We would have liked to walk our dogs, but since three of them are currently hurt, we have been taking it easy with them. When we do take them out, it is only for short distances. I feel guilty since our goal was to walk the dogs 3 – 4 times a week, but we need to let them heal. Sasha, the matriarch of the pack, has a mysterious pain that has been plaguing her for over two months now. We took her to the vet and had her X-Rayed, but the results were inconclusive. I may take her back Tomorrow or Wednesday. Tommy will need surgery to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left rear leg. He’s not supposed to run around and play like a little savage, but sometimes he bolts out the french doors and flies off our deck into the backyard. That leads us to Argus. The poor old guy is twelve years old and severely arthritic. The vet said that his exercise should be limited to a 20 – 30 minute walk per day. Argus is not your typical dog though. Dr. N., our vet, as well as Dr. Clary, a veterinary orthopedic specialist, say they do not know how Argus is even walking at all. Several of Argus’ vertebrae from his neck to midway down his back are fused. The Drs. explained to us that many dogs who have just one or two fused are unable to move in any fashion that resembles normal canine locomotion. They are baffled by Argus’ mobility. We are happy about it.
How are you all doing with your goals/resolutions? How was your week/weekend? Read any magazines lately?
