monday, monday

good monday morning my friends. how was your weekend? ours was nice and quiet. we did a little spring cleaning, a little gardening and got a little sun. bailey enjoyed the sun part but she doesn’t like it when we are busy because then we can’t be giving her 100% of our attention. you think maybe somebody just might be a little spoiled?

it was cold and windy yesterday, and today there is a chance of rain, but last night bailey wanted to go for an evening walk.

she said she just had to catch up on her p-mail ...

and make sure the neighborhood was safe.

stressful days

the past few days have been pretty stressful here at casa chihuahua. another aftereffect of bailey’s fall, that i’ve never posted about, is that she drools. but not cute little spittle. it’s more like thick loogies that hang like shoestrings from her little mouth. these drooling periods come & go and vary in length but this last one was pretty bad, lasting 3 days! these episodes change her personality, she goes into a depression, she doesn’t eat or drink, she gets the chills, and an added worry is that if she doesn’t eat, she can’t take her anti-seizure medication (because i put her medicine in her food).

the drooling finally started to subside yesterday and she was able to eat her dinner and drink her water. hopefully she will continue to improve today because she needs to get her strength back.

bailey has provided me enough raspberry pictures for a lifetime of tongue out tuesday posts. whether they are petite, or super-sized, i think they are all adorable.

gardening weather

spring is the season for freshening up the garden and tackling household projects. this weekend we had perfect gardening weather, so we headed outside. but first, lowe’s, where bailey gets to ride like a princess.

good news

you might recall that 2 1/2 weeks ago bailey was prescribed a new medication to help control her seizures. (a teeny tiny little pill that i have to crush and separate into 8 doses.) i am happy to report that since she’s been on it, she’s only had 1 seizure. yesterday we went to the vet for another follow-up visit and doc was thrilled to hear it’s been working for her. he said to continue the 1/8 pill twice a day and wants to see us again in another month. yay for bailey!

mind blown

while shopping the other day, we ran into a lady that blew my mind. she started off with the usual: "your dog’s so cute, how old is she?" then...

"is she a teacup?" i get that question a lot. instead of schooling people that a "teacup" chihuahua isn’t really a thing (according to the chihuahua club of america), i just tell them bailey is 4 pounds. her response was "oh, so she’s not a teacup." um, i never said she was! then she goes right into...

"has she ever had babies?" what kind of question is that?! i’m already beyond annoyed with her so i told her 'of course not!' and we walked away.

it was the strangest interaction i’ve ever had with a stranger and left me quite irritated. have you ever been asked a ridiculous question about your fur baby that blew your mind?

say’s phoebe #WildlifeWednesday

i usually share wildlife that i see in our backyard but today, i am sharing what i saw in our front yard. this pretty little say’s phoebe has been hanging around our home lately and now i know why.

look, she has nesting in her beak! aww, we’re gonna have babies.

the other day i was at our front window, trying to get a video of the migrating painted ladies that were flying over our home, when she kept flying back and forth, back and forth, right in front of me.

oh, she saw me!

isn’t she cute?

and where do you suppose she was making her nest? on top of our front porch light! so, what does that mean for us? well, because we don’t want to disturb her, we will not be using our front door until the babies have left the nest.

a new look for bailey #tot

bailey has a new look. y’all know she always has a little raspberry hanging out but look what happened.

it’s gone sideways! BOL

on a sidenote: this weekend we ran into a lady that saw bailey with her tongue hanging out asked us if she was thirsty. i guess she thought she was panting? (like i’d ever let bailey get that thirsty, geesh! you should see the doggie bag we go out with. it’s filled with food, water, cheerios, napkins, extra poopie bags...) we told her, no, it's always hanging out.
