Poor Dax

Well Mr. Dax had to go to the vet this morning. Sunday, Brant and I noticed that he was limping and it hasn't gotten any better. So, I took him in and vet did some X-rays. He has a sprained muscle in his shoulder and its very swollen and tender. And, he has a bacterial infection. So, for the next 2 weeks, the boy is bed-rested! He has to stay in his room or in his kennel and can only walk around to either get his food, or go to the bathroom...that means, no jumping up on the bed to snuggle with mom, and playing fetch outside with his ball...we can't even take him on a walk. So, for the next 2 weeks, he'll be here...

And while he is there, he will be taking all sorts of medicine to help him get better. Let's see...we have: an anti-inflammatory, a stool hardener (for the diarrhea), and two antibiotics...not to mention the regular heartworm and flea/tick medicine we take on a regular basis.

My dog takes more medication than Brant and I put together....hahaha! But in all honestly, I hate that he is sick - Brant and I love playing with him in the backyard and he loves to go on walks. We're going to miss that these next 2 weeks!!!

Oh a happier note, I thought I would give you a few looks as to some of my newest digital pages. These are all from Brant's birthday when we went to the Dallas Cowboys Thanksgiving Game.

Much Love,
