That is all I did all day long......
Vacuum, laundry, bathroom, all the rugs in laundry. took garbage to street, raked leaves in the back yard.  BUT I did just sit in the sun out back with the dogs... they like me to be out there with them, matter of fact that is the only way they will stay out there for any length of time, is if I sit with them.  Watched the leaves fall, smelled the smells, felt the wind, felt the sun shining on me.  it was a nice day.
Carl is not doing very well. Took him for a bath yesterday and he had an episode in the car when I got him back in there afterwards. He peed on himself and would not jump up to put his front paws on the door ledge, was almost impossible to get him in the car without him helping in some way... not going to take him again, will just rub him down with a wash cloth if he gets dirty, hate to see him like that.. he does not walk very well, am sure it is strokes that he is having, small ones and it is affecting his mobility.  He is still eating well.  Poops are normal.... Brian wanted me to call the vet and find out what 'final costs' would be, I could not do it. Suppose one has to be prepared, but when faced with that, I could not do it, made me sad and I cried all day, when I sat down and stopped cleaning.... I will call them, but don't really think we are there yet.... so I can think on it, and ease myself to that place. No emergency yet...
Take Care All and God Bless


  1. So sorry to hear Carl is failing.

  2. Sorry about Carl not doing well. I didn't know he was that old. I don't know how I would feel about having to make that step with Fred

  3. I am so sorry to hear this about Carl Loree. I just love him. He is my favorite bulldog and sadly the only one I see anymore. I am sure you are right that it is strokes. How old is Carl? I'm sure he will let you know when he is ready to go our animals always did. I know I would be crying too.
