Rough Day

Boy, did we have a rough day yesterday. Spike had something happen that had me convinced he was not going to make it through the night. The good news is that today, he seems nearly all better and back to his regular self. But this is a picture I took of him last night:

He was lethargic, unbalanced, quivering, panting, and could hardly walk. Spike is 16 years old, and though age is taking its toll, he's been moving around pretty darn good for a dog his age. And we just had him to the vet last Thursday for a check-up and all seemed well.

We slept on the floor lat night to be by his side, that's how worried we were. But Spike is a trooper, and appears to have fought off whatever it was, and we are very pleased to see him back to his normal Spike self this evening!

On to the other pets...Kitty really enjoys the bay window, and can lay there for hours:
Max, not to be outdone, thinks he has every right to look out the window as well. And bark. And bark. And bark. He doesn't miss a thing.


That's when we stick him out in the back.....

Next task - get a fence built so he can roam free!

Max looks beautiful! He does seem to be the type of dog not to miss a beat. Cute!

Okay, I just want to know why Max is wearing a harness in the house. Even Cary took hers off in the house (most of the time). Unfortunately I don't think it'll fit her anymore.
