More Puppy News

Tule, aka Tim the Tool Man Taylor :), is well on the way to full recovery.  Turns out, he had a mild case of pneumonia, and, thanks to the fabulous team at Dr. Steven Bauer’s office and at Spokane’s fine Pet Emergency Clinic, he’ll be all right.  He received some fluids by IV, along with medicine and rest, and he’s home to stay.  I don’t know who is happier about his return, me or his brother Mowgli.  They’ve become buddies, that’s for sure, and the cats are beginning to tolerate them, which is definite progress.  :)

As I write this, I’m listening to a new audiobook by one of my favorite authors, Joy Fielding.  The title is “She’s Not There” and, like all Ms. Fieldings’ books, it’s great.  I recently listened to “The Readers of Broken Wheel Recovery Recommend”, by Katarina Bivald.  The story was translated from Swedish, though it takes place in Iowa, and it is charming.  I also enjoyed “The Widow”, by British author Fiona Barton, but it IS rather grim, and some people might find it disturbing.

Did I mention that the daffodils and tulips are coming up?  :)

    Linda, I’m glad your puppy is better and at home.

    I was going to send you a picture of my antique Jonquils from my old house, but I couldn’t find your other E-mail address so I could send them.

    I’m glad you have some. I just looked out the back bedroom window and saw my Yellow Bells are blooming.

    Glad to hear the dog is on the mend. Aren’t vets wonderful? We had such mild weather that my daffodils are budding… and tonight we have 3 inches of snow predicted. I guess spring has fooled everyone this year!

    I just looked outside and I too have flower bulbs coming up and it is snowing here today. I could see the tips of the leaves they looked a little brown, but they looked like they are about 4 inches tall already.

    Now I need to check the rest.

    Glad your little guy is on the mend. Talking of good book reads, try “THE APOSTLE” by a new author, Dennis Brooke. Was just available Feb.1 of this year.

    Great news about Tule. It’s such a worry when our fur kids aren’t well. It will be a while before our daffodils appear. Enjoy!

    As my Grandkids would say, I am SO jelly! About the daffodils that is. We’re in the middle of a blizzard in Michigan. I’m glad your pup is better and the cats are learning to accept the newcomers.

    Really good news about Tule! I also like Joy Fielding. No tulips here yet but we did have four Mourning Doves show up at our feeder. We don’t usually see them in the winter so I think they are back.

    In the South all daffodils are called buttercups. Well, the buttercups are up and we had some snow today! There’s some kind of weather prediction about that but I don’t remember what it is. I hope the prediction is SPRING!

    So glad to hear that your baby is getting better. Last night my Yorkie had puppies, 3 boys and one girl. I love to watch them develop and then find furever homes.

    I am so glad your fur baby is getting better. My daffodils are coming up also and it suppose to snow tonight. It has been in the 50’s today but the tempts have dropped all day. Its been raining and really windy. My kitty has ran in and out all day and after the wind got so high he finaly came in and stayed in. I guess since he was born outside he thinks that where he should be. Right now he is sleeping in my husbands computer chair. These fur babies have it made.

    So gald to here puppy is doing good. We have great vets here in the NW. I think it has something to do with WSU vet school. Even if you vet didn’t go there they know about them and there work, and subscript to there publications.

    I am so glad that your new baby is home and mending. And as for flowers. I don’t thing I will be seeing any of mine for a while. We are getting 12 to 14 inches of snow. I would say that we already have at least 12. Send some warmer weather my way please.

    Glad to hear your baby is alright and at home.

    I was wondering if you are getting any of the snow I saw on the news? I live in TN and we may get a few flakes from the next snow storm.

    So glad he is getting better! I love when flowers start coming up! My daughters Papa Jim use to plant them all over. It was like an Easter egg hunt to see them pop up in spring! :-P

    Mater and I are very glad that Tule is back home. Now he can
    enjoy spring with the rest of us. My tulips are coming up, too.
    I just hope the mule deer don’t stop by and nibble the tops off

    I recently read The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend and thoroughly enjoyed it. I hope to read more of Ms Bivald in the future.

    Glad to hear that your Mom is doing better and that she has a permanent caregiver and that Tule is getting the medicine and care he needs to get over this pneumonia. Will keep your Mom and Tule in our prayers. No tulips up here in Vermont but we are having some early maple sugaring happening here. :)

    I’m so glad your baby is doing better. It’s such a shame when a pet is ill. They can’t tell you anything and they just look so trustingly at you like you have ALL the answers. Gotta love em!
    Our weather here in Texas is crazy this year! We have had no winter what so ever and trees and plants are starting to bloom. I hope we don’t have a surprise freeze.
    Have a great weekend everyone!!!!

    Wonderful news about Tule. They are our babies.
    The daffodils and crocuses are coming up here (Kentucky ) as well.
    Have a wonderful weekend.

    I’m getting hyacinths and tulips! What’s amazing is that the bulbs were thrown out of pots that I’d bought last year (already blooming), and I was throwing out old pots, so I tossed the soil and bulbs onto the dirt in a corner of my yard. The hyacinths are blooming and the tulips are working on it. God’s got those flowers well trained!
