Take a Beagle Break

We're resting today. It's been a hard week. Because of budget cuts at my mom's work she didn't know until this week that she would still have a job! She was not the one cut so now we can crash and relax. Next year there will be more cuts but we won't think about it today.

Today it is 82 degrees and my mom turned off the AC. It's sort of like a reverse eskimo--Eskimos think 15 degrees is HOT because they are used to much colder temps. We think 82 is COOL compared to 100 we've had lately. And it's cloudy.

We're watching movies and keeping up with the
Kapp Pack on the Blogathon. It's pretty exciting! Please help them out with a donation to MaPaw Siberian rescue.


And we're celebrating another whole year with Sasha! Her health is going downhill at a very slow pace. Her tumor is growing (they cannot operate on it--she literally died (twice) from the anaethesia but the vet got her back!). It's blocking her intestine little by little but with a diet that keeps her pooping like soft ice cream she is able to be comfortable. She is bright-eyed and happy, runs around barking and has a great appetite. There is no look in her eyes that says she feels bad. In fact, when my mom thought it was time for her to go to the Bridge several months ago, the vet said, Sasha was not ready yet!! Imagine that. It was July 26 last year that we found out about the tumor--so we've had her another whole year!

Hi River
It is like that with budget cuts here too. It's good your mom still has her job. More bones and treats. Enjoy the "cool" weather. You must be taking good care of Sasha.
