Winter Flu

The temperature is finally breaking into single digits today and I am home with the flu. I spent the weekend making home made chicken soup and taking care of my sick husband and he has decided to share. It is miserable having aches and pains, sore throat, runny nose, headache and heavy chest.

I get a bonus when I am home sick during the week. My dog takes it personally. She pouts, glares at me and goes to the back door on a regular basis. When I drag myself over to open the door, she looks at me as if to say ” Not me, you get out!”. I have no idea what she does when I go to work all day but I have a feeling she will not be impressed when I retire in a few months.

Wet Kat

Tonight was the night to trim Kat’s feet, the hair around her face, and give her a bath. She was not even that dirty, but somehow setting her in a tub of warm clean water and lathering her up with doggy shampoo releases the worst wet dog smell ever.

I’m sure there must be some scientific reason for why dogs smell so bad when they get wet but I cannot imagine what it would be. Whatever the reason, I am pretty sure Cavaliers, or Kat anyway, is worse than your average wet dog. 🤦
