"Charlie is so very tired. He needs a break in the WORST way.
Is it time to leave on vacation YET???"

Almost, Chuckles.... It's almost time.

"The Lady can take the dog, but she can't take the bed... Okay?
You're leaving the dog bed here with Ruby, right???"

Sure, Ruby. If you say so.


Norman Update

Old man Norman visited the vet on Thursday morning. Hundreds of dollars and a senior blood panel, subcutaneous fluids, a steroid shot, and a prescription later, he was sent on his merry way (only to get his revenge on the way home... revenge of the most explosive kind... inside the carrier... yuck).

While we wait for the test results, we're switching Norman to a grain-free diet to see if that (along with the medication) helps things moving in the right direction.

The good news is that he has gained weight since our last go-round with this same business... and he doesn't have ringworm. Yes, I made them check. 


  1. Poor Norman - the indignity of it all.....

  2. Even though the ride home sounded, well... We are at least glad that Norman got to come home.

    Hope things will be back in order soon.
    Harry, Dexter and Tipp

  3. Oh yeah, can you email my mom, she couldn't find your email address. cherrycitykitties AT yahoo DOT com. :)

  4. Inside the carrier is always better than outside the carrier in the car!! Hugs to Norman - hopefully his terrible tummy will be feeling better soon!
