Sunny (finally) Monday

After wet snow (!) this morning it has turned into a nice afternoon: sunny, breezy and 48F.

Holly still seems to be doing OK, no sign of her limp, she's just waiting for the tennis ball to return ;)

Veronica Mars continues...

Sunday afternoon

Another very successful Lenten event out of the way after church (brunch), and here we are in the grey, damp woods- drizzling and 46F.

Still Veronica Mars :)

Pissing down with rain, 46F. But Holly seems to be pretty much back to normal, just annoyed that I haven't brought a tennis ball :)

Still listening to Veronica Mars

And... we're back!

After 2 weeks off to hopefully let Holly heal whatever was wrong with her back leg we're trying a test day in the woods, no tennis ball for a couple of weeks (she's not pleased), but other than that she seems happy to be back :)

Fingers crossed she shows no ill effects and we can work our way back to full activity...

Grey, drizzly, and 46F.

Listening to Kristen Bell read the new Veronica Mars book.

Thursday, frozen again

25F and windy so all the mud is frozen solid again.

Trying a new pair of Bluetooth headphones, more when I've spent a bit more time with them but I like then so far :)

Welly Boots Wednesday

Another warmish one, 51F, and the trails are a sloppy, slushy, muddy mess- but they're no match for my Great British Wellies (tm).

Muddy Monday

Another warmish one, 46F, and the snow is melting and revealing the mud underneath.

Sunny Saturday

Lots of people out in the woods on this lovely day, 49F and sunny.

Were pretty much back to our normal loop, just taking it easy with the tennis ball (though Holly just had a lovely time winning the hearts of the 2 little girls who are just out of shoot in the picture- chasing the ball and bringing it back and dropping it at their feet).

Friday off

Still on the short loop. It's funny, Holly seems absolutely fine most of the time (especially here in the woods) but every now and then she'll go back to walking on three legs with her back left leg off the ground for a few minutes, then back to normal again. I think she's getting better, but I guess we'll just have to take it easy for a little longer.

Cold and grey, 31F.

Short loop again. Holly was still a bit gimpy after our walk yesterday, but seems to be improving every day:)

Sunny but cooler, 25F.

Ash Wednesday

Back (let's try this again).

After our last trip to the woods Holly was back to limping with one back leg off the ground. I talked it over with the vet and we decided it is most likely a flare up of the tick-borne blood infection she had before (anaplasmosis), so we've started her on a pretty serious 30 day course of antibiotics. She's now on her second day and the improvement is pretty startling! We've just been doing leash walks around Rye for the last few days but she seems so much better I thought we'd try the short loop (but with no tennis ball).

Cool and grey, 32F.

Sunday, and we're back...

... after a couple of days off to let Holly get back to normal after being a bit lame. We just did longish leash walks around Rye the last couple of days, but she seems pretty much back to normal now :)

Warm and grey, 37F, but we're supposed to get a free inches of snow tonight.
