Happy Birthday to our little Cooper! He's a grown man now at 3 years old lol. He's the only one we have had since a puppy, and gosh was he a handful! Always crying, absolutely terrified of everything and being alone, but such a sweetums! He had a rough start when Mike found him starving and alone in the quarry he worked at, but I'd say he's pretty fat and happy now! #rescuepuppy#adoptdontshop#birthdayboy#houndmix#puppies#socute#allears#cuddlebug
Contentment and love, to me, is defined in this picture. Sitting on the patio as the sun starts to set, listening to the trees in the wind, watching the dogs play, and sipping coffee. Sharing the moment and sharing random thoughts, but otherwise letting the silence speak. "To love and to be loved... Is the greatest joy on Earth."
I feel compelled to spread the word about Veterinarian Recommended Solutions' Omega Benefits for dogs. We were told it would help with Dillon's recovery (anti inflamatory and arthritis help), but we got some for all the dogs. Nita used to have a really bad and painful chronic dry nose, it is now 90 percent better. Everyone's coats are insanely soft (not just after a bath) and I even think everyone has more energy/silliness. Taste is good and is not overly expensive for how many doses you get. Super happy we tried it.
Today was a good day! All the sub 85 degree cloudy weather has the #begonia full and thriving. I found a new plant nursery that has everything ever! Already planning for spring. I picked up some #cabbage transplants because the rain drowned my seeds last week! The #cucumbers next to them seem to be doing okay as well. I have started to spray everything with #neemoil because I see little nibbles. It a natural pest deterrent but doesn't bother the bees. Since starting the nibbles have stopped👌👌 #fallgarden#veggiegarden#zone8b#texasgardening#bees
2 weeks since Dillon's surgery. It seems much longer! We kept him in his own room with his cage blocking the door so he could see his friends, but not run around with them. He's having some tummy issues now, so I let him come nap in the living room with us after a dose of canned pumpkin. All in all though, he's healing fine and is very mobile. Too mobile! #tplo#tplosurgery#upsetstomach#cannedpumpkin#poorpup#familytime#recovery
We love our sweet Luna Tuna! The only dog we actually went to the shelter to get, instead of just finding or acquiring ha! Turning 6 soon. I know she's going to be super protective of baby Owen! #plotthoundmix#loyal#mamadog
It's a sad day for the pumpkin and squash. Their first-time mother didn't recognize the signs of a pest infestation! I saw the leaves wilting but didn't yet know about Squash Vine Borers, larvae that hide and eat the interior of the vines. Had to cut out about half of each mound. You can see a big one a pulled out in the first picture 😪. I planted a second mound of pumpkin and squash to try and still have some grow to maturity. Le sigh. I'm legit sad and disappointed in myself but it is my first time, after all! #learningthehardway#squashvineborer#newbiegardener#vegetablegarden#fallgarden#betternexttime
The sweet Dill is home from his #tplo surgery. About 3 weeks ago, x-rays showed degeneration in his dog version of ACL. Before surgery today, they found it completely torn. They are not sure what came first- an injury, or genetic predisposition, or both. But he's got metal holding his knee together now, so I guess all is well. Now he gets to be confined to the office or on a leash at all times for the next 8 weeks at a minimum! I think the other dogs got the vibe immediately. They were very calm approaching him in the cage and then went on to let him sleep. The pack is complete again! (#Rainbow as a good sign on the way home) * * Shout-out to @firehousevetclinic in Kyle for being worth the drive from Dallas to get this done for him. I always know they will do the best! #tornccl#pitbullsofinstagram#recovery#poorpup#bionicpup#tplosurgery#tplorecovery#crazypup#tcl
