Another Good Dog Day

November 6th, 2021 at 02:47 am

Well, we've had another good day with the dog.  She's still struggling to eat, but I've cooked her a chicken breast and found meatballs are the perfect method of getting the antibiotics in her. She even went for a little walk today.  Crossing our fingers and hoping for the best.

It was a busy day with the opening of a new writing lab in our business school.  It's nice to see corporate sponsorship for something like writing.  But it meant I'm behind in grading and planning, so much of the weekend will be devoted to that.  I've been trying to get a decent walk in every day and am listening to Roger Whitney, aka the Retirement Answer Man.  I think his podcasts are aimed for people with a bit more income and assets than we have, but they're interesting.  Anyone else listen to him? 

It will be back to 60 degrees here tomorrow, so hoping to get a few tulip bulbs in and perhaps a pot of soup made. 

We've also booked our DD's flight home from Edinburgh the first week in December. Her exams are all on line the following week, so we'll have a good stretch with her home.   She's really settled in there and loves the university.  I'm so proud and relieved that the semester has worked out so well for her. She'll head back there in January.  I'm hoping to use some air miles to pay for her next flights.

Happy Friday everyone!

    Glad your fur baby is improving! I wish I could find more podcasts aimed toward lower income people in retirement.

    Same as Amber, I haven't heard of him but I'll check it out.

    That's wonderful that DD is doing so well. It's a huge change. And I'm sure you miss her.

    Glad to hear your dog is on the mend, hopefully she’ll be recovered completely soon. Enjoy your daughter’s return, glad she has settled in so well!

    I've not heard of Roger Whitney either.

    Wonderful that DD is doing great too.

    I think writing has gotten lost so I'm glad to learn the lab is being opened concentrated on business writing.

    I'm glad the dog is doing ok.

    For appetite, try Ancestral Supplements Grass-Fed Beef Organs. Opening up the capsules and sprinkling them on my cat's food definitely stimulates her appetite as do freeze-dried cubes of beef liver. I'd think those would work for a dog as well. I also give my cat bonito flakes but I'm less sure that dried fish would be as attractive to a dog.
