Rain, and Lots of It

What do you suppose I heard when I woke up this morning? Rain, and lots of it. It was coming a toad-washer outside. Cool rain, too, and it was only 70 degrees. A welcome break when I'm used to sitting around with my tongue hanging out from the summer heat. Spent the day helping in the kitchen. Notice how shiny the floor is? Cap, Glynn and I did clean-up duty.

We noticed that Glynn kept shaking her head, and you know what that means. A trip in the pupmobile to the vet's office. Seems she had a truckload of dirt in one ear (she blames me for flinging it around when I'm doing my landscaping). Then the vet noticed something unusual.

The vet found a small tumor growing in one of Glynn's ears. It's just a tiny thing now, so there's no immediate concern, but the next time we're in for our dentals we can have it taken care of. And that good ear-washing she got did the trick. No more shaking her head, and she's got that happy smile back on her face. It doesn't take much to keep little sis happy.

We are glad you got some relief from the heat, and that Gwen left the dirt at the Vet's office. Hope you keep smiling for the rest of the summer.

It was great to see your happy selves in these pictures. And we're glad to hear that, despite the rain, the temperatures may start dropping as we head home in a few days.

If you have any influence in the weather department ... you might put a request in for a hold on the downpours while we're driving. It will make potty stops hard, otherwise!

Barks of love,
Jake and Fergi

We're glad Glynn's ear is going to be okay! We finally got some rain, here, too! Of course, that makes it feel like a steam bath every time we go outside! We hope your's doesn't feel like that!
