Good Morning everyone! How was your weekend? Mine was good. Taz continues to improve (finished all her meds), her hair is growing back and soon her stitches will be a thing of the past. In a few weeks they should disappear.  If not, we will have them removed.  Anyway, she is back to normal...as loud as ever LOL

Ok, please sign in with your name, location, your dog's name and breed....and what you did over the weekend.

Gaye here in Arlington, TX.  My pets are:  Anya, fawn pug, 10 1/2; Jabaar, black pug, 9 1/2; Dylan Thomcat, sealpoint Siamese, 8.  My foster is Roo Ben, fawn pug, 9.

Spent the weekend carting Roo Ben to and from the vet clinic, caring for him, doing errands, and trying to decide on paint and flooring for the inside of my house.  I want to do so much, but I have to stay within my budget.  Trying to decide if I am up to painting it, myself.  I can paint decently, but there are heavy things I don't think I can move alone.

Laura here in VA with 7YO lab/mix, Cleo.

Did some pruning yesterday...and am paying for it today.  I finally had to start taking Claritin...I was a "mess" this morning when I got up.  I hate taking meds because they make me feell worse sometimes, but I had to start.  Now, of course, I'm sleepy...and I have to drive home tonight....LOL...

Other than that...really quiet weekend.  I can't wait until it gets warmer...today and rainy and nasty....I want to start planting some annuals.

It's often difficult to do things on your own...but I've tried to do so much lately, with DH's help....rather than pay someone else to do it.  We just don't have the money many times, and I don't wait to wait to get things done.   But I do think this year I'm going to have my windows done by a service; we have some very tall, large windows that I just cannot ready.  I can get them with the hose and use Windex Outdoor on the outside...but not on the inside....LOL....

Donna here with Dante, 3 y/o Greyhound in Arizona. Saturday my sister came over to help me with some decorating advice with my guest bedroom and then we went out to lunch. And Sunday I went to her house for bbq'ed steak dinner. It was a great weekend! I'm glad Taz is recovering so nicely Terre! And that it looks worse than it is!!

Gaye - I hate painting. Do you have anyone that could help you move the heavy stuff?

Laura - I feel for you. I'm suffering too so I stay indoors as much as possible. Real hard when Jack and Taz insist we take a walk to the mailbox LOL! I'm already taking Zyrtec (for the dog dander) and reluctant to take anything else unless I absolutely have to!!
