The Khids' Mom Here

Sigh. This has been the longest week of my life. I had to take the khids to the vet's--Tuesday. Why? Because the fence guys were coming! That in itself is great news of course--I have been waiting forever to be able to redo the fence. The bad news? It is Friday, the khids are still at the vet's because of STORMS!!!!! The fence guys got everything done but putting up the boards when the STORMS hit! Yes we need the rain, but geesh, can't it wait until I get my babies safely home?

Apparently not. So, the last two and a half days, my backyard has looked like this:


It will be awesome when it is done but can you imagine what the huskydoos would do with THAT set up? OY!

I have been amazed by how sad and lonely my house is without the puppies. How LAZY I am. LOL. The only good thing to this I suppose is the extra time I'm giving Scotty, whose health is deteriorating rapidly. With the backyard like the above, I can normally just let the springers out and they'll trot back in when done--still true of Claire, but not Scotty. I have to take him out on leash because he is confused. And watching him move around in the backyard has made me realize something--he is going blind. I knew his eyes were clouding up, and he is totally deaf already, but watching him out there, bumbling around, just added to the rottenness of things of the week. Yes, I keep putting off taking him to the vet. He's not ready for that last drive just yet--but I know it will be soon.


I want my huskies HOME! A house without huskies is just not a home. Not anymore, not for me. :*(


Can I just write off this week?

Hi Khyra, do you read minds or something? I just posted this--how did you know so fast? That is about a third of the backyard--I will probably stay in this house forever cuz of that yard! Oddly--it is the biggest one in the whole neighborhood. Meant for sibes, I guess.

I hope you are right about Nanukh. The shelter people love him and believe in him, and I got all his loose blown hair out so he is pretty as can be so hopefully that will help. I also gave him a pretty new bandana collar, flashy red. Geesh it was hard. I will always love him, honestly.

I have been watching Indy lots this week but it is hard to follow. Nikki's passing made me burst into tears! Maybe there is a reason, too, for the delay in fence--to concentrate more on Skhotty for a few days.

I want my babies back though. I cannot WAIT to see them tonight! WOO WOO WOOOO!!!!

My mom is jealous of your-soon-to-be new fence. I have no idea why parents are so obsessed with fencing. What's wrong with a little running?

Mama says whenever you're sad, you can call her. She doesn't like when anyone's sad.

Woos,

We're sorry to hear about Scotty. It's a hard time on humans. Take care!
