Chloe's Home...

She's not feeling real pert but at least she is home and not in a cage. She's in pretty rough shape but is on 2 types of antibiotics, a steroid, an anti- diarrhea med, an anti-nausea med and one for pain if needed. In other words they don't know what went wrong with my girl. They figure if you throw enough meds at it whatever it is, it will go away. I don't know how it will end with this round and expecting it could go either way but it gives mom a chance to get her mind ready for what ever is to come.

Tomorrow is Christmas Eve. Our little family gets together for snacks... Rotel cheese dip, little smokies, and sandwich stuff for snacking and visiting. Then presents are opened. Until my Carol and I started living together Christmas Day was always the gift day but she had traditions she had already started with Jeff and so we do gifts on Christmas Eve. There would be Santa gifts on Christmas Day but since he is 38 now we don't do that anymore.

This year Carol is going to cook beef for Christmas Day instead of just repeating the Thanksgiving menu. I'll let you all know what will be cooking for Christmas Day as soon as I know what is on the menu.

In the meantime you all get your preparations for Christmas done so you can be sure to have time for hugs and to tell your families that you love each and every one, including the 4 legged babies because we never know for sure how long we are going to be of this world...

glad Chloe is holding on, sweet girl. Hope you are feeling better too.

Hi Helen,
I am getting the same mindset as you about my pet, my Rottweiler male, Deuce. Being widowed has made my dog a special gift from God--to fill in the void. Take care.

One of my cats, Rusty, has had a bad year, with two visits to the vets of several days each, and on both occasions we had caught him only just in time. I'm at my happiest when John and I and the two cats are together by the fireside enjoying each other's company, and I'm thinking of you and your fur babies, particularly Chloe. Hope your Christmas is peaceful.

Sorry Chloe is under the weather and I hope it is nothing serious Helen. Merry Christmas to you all.

Hoping Chloe will get better, hon.
Give her a pat on the head from me :)

We used to do snacks on Christmas Eve and open one gift. The rest was done Christmas morning and then breakfast and then later...usually a ham.

Last night I had something microwaved and today, David will be coming by before work at 4:00. He worked last night too. Oh, I visited my brother yesterday.

Things sure do change as we get older. I hope you have a very Merry Christmas hon! xoxoxoxox
