great american eclipse

yesterday was the great american eclipse. did you see it? only a few cities were lucky enough to see a total eclipse. here in the i.e., we got a partial eclipse, i think it was 70%. the girls were afraid to go outside because they didn't have the special glasses. i told them if they didn't look directly at the sun, regular sunglasses should be ok. BOL

this is a screenshot of the eclipse that was visible from my city.

do not disturb

this is one of bailey's favorite spots to fall asleep. in this position, i can't get any crocheting done but at least my right hand is still free to use the computer. it's a little slower with only one hand, but i can't bear to disturb her. do you put your furbaby's comfort above your own?

potp for bee

saturday night, my grand dog bee went back home to new york. it's always a joy to have that cutie here. but last night daughter #2 called saying bee wasn't feeling well. they were on their way to the emergency vet because bee was wobbly and extremely lethargic. my daughter said as soon as they go to the vet, bee threw up. they are thinking it was something she ate but they took blood just to be sure everything's ok.
hope you are feeling better today, sweet bee.

crate training

i have started crate training bailey because the venue daughter #2 chose for her wedding & reception is not dog friendly. how dare they! she can be there for the wedding but she is not able to stay for the reception. go figure. because i cannot leave her home alone, no way, no how, we bought a crate to take to the venue. they said she has to stay upstairs, in the bridal suite, crated, during the reception. yikes! (daughter #1's wedding was totally dog friendly. just sayin'. shout out to la valencia hotel.)

we've had bailey almost 7 years and we've never had the need to have her crated, so this is new for all of us. she is ok for a few minutes but then she wants out. and will be quite vocal about it. we have fed her her meals in there, making it a yummy place. we've also left the door open so she can wander in and out, but she's never wandered in on her own. any tips you have would be greatly appreciated. the wedding is in 8 months.
