~ Maggs ~ Puppy ~ Hugging Day ~ Clam Chowder

Good 32º morning. Frost and more frost!
Yesterday the sky was lovely...and we had sun!!!
When I got up this morning the sky was awesome......

I had to take Maggie to the vets first thing this a.m. They called late yesterday and said the test kit for the Cushings had arrived (already!) and they wanted to know when I wanted to come in. I said "tomorrow"! I want this to be over with for her and the sooner the better. So after 6pm last night she couldn't have food. I did give her a little sweet potato/chicken treat at 3am when she wanted out to pee. Then I gave her pills to her with a tiny piece of cheese and put some chicken broth in her bowl. She drank a little. They will do a blood draw first thing and then give her a shot of something and then do blood draws all day long. Poor baby! I took some of her treats and a dental chew, so when she can eat something it will be her favorites. I'll pick her up around 5pm.

Yesterday I did get a bunch of stuff cleaned out of my bathroom drawers and tossed a bag full. Yeah! Today it's the cupboards in there.....

Oh, and when I walked in the vets, first thing Joan asked if I got pictures of today's sunrise. "Of course!" :o)   Then Joyce walked out with this teeny tiny black puppy, asking, "Do you want a puppy?" Groan, he was the CUTEST thing! Probably 5 or so weeks old and black as the ace of spades. Not a white hair on him. OMG, "Of course I want him, it is just not practical at the present time." Sigh....
 I held him and he even smelled good.

Well, late start today. Breakfast was oatmeal with peanut butter mixed in, an orange cut into segments mixed in, and drizzled with Blue Agave sweetener. I know.... so healthy!!! I try.  Nuff said. Ciao.
