Ok, I have to post. It’s October 1st. I love September and October. I’m only going to post a short one right now.
It was a beautiful summer. Had an awesome time with the dogs and other animals.
In early September Reuben started limping. He had pulled muscles, twisted knees before, so we started the pain and inflammation meds. It didn’t help. So after about 10 days Ken took him in for xrays. We were sure he was going to need knee surgery. The knee was fine. It was bone cancer that Ken found. About two days before the xray, Reuben had stopped eating and he was putting out tons of protein in his urine. So, with all the info, Ken realized he couldn’t wake Reuben up from the sedation for the xrays. He euthanized him right then. He was 11 1/2. Had a great life! We sure miss him, though, dang it!
Rats. 😦 I didn’t want to do a downer post, but that is what I wanted to say, apparently.
There were so many beautiful walks through the fields and trees on our property and up in north Michigan this summer. Reuben really did have a great last summer. Here’s a pic of him so I can gaze at it.
I just wish we could all stay together forever. Is that unreasonable? (haha…yeah)
Ken and I just got back from a week in Vegas. Ashlee and Ross were out there, too, so we got together with them a few times. Hiked in Red Rock Canyon. Saw “Love” the Cirque du Soliel Beatles show and had some great dinners.
When we got home the dogs and cats were so happy to see us. Teagan was sleeping on the couch and Orion managed to climb up behind her and lie down without disturbing her. This is a first!
So, all is well except for losing Reuben. I hope I can get back in the blogging mood again! I have lots of good news to share! Ashlee and Ross are buying a farm and moving Oct. 19, 20th and they are going to raise alpacas!!! Just wait until I get those pictures flowing!
Ok, I will wrap this up. I have over 400 emails in my inbox (mostly crap, of course) but I can’t even get that cleaned out, hence the blogging block!
Thanks to all you guys who are out there keeping us going!! BIG HUGS.
