Hello, again. Yes, I'm back. Earlier than I expected, but I'm going to write shorter and more often. That way, I'll not lose my momentum or risk losing you, again. I don't want to do that. My new mantra ~ shorter, more frequent posts... So, this post is going to be quick and easy. I'm hungry and have barely eaten anything today. Must keep eating. First, I want to share with you some good news about Lucy's puppies. And this pic: Today, right now, they are almost six days old and doing well, as is she. Here's a slightly more recent picture than the first one. This one was taken by my breeder when they were three and a half days old ~ on Thursday, November 25 ~ the day before yesterday. They were still very tiny, but growing fast, beginning to fill out a bit. You cannot see much, but that's because they tend to huddle together to keep each other warm.
As I was saying... For the next three weeks, I was growing increasingly stressed, big time stress, until Lucy's X-ray on November 17th. That was just three days before she could potentially whelp. Lucy was growing, too... My stress levels swung into high gear, the fatter she grew. I was anxious, nervous, flying off the handle, screaming at the turn of a dime. Seeing Dr. Bob weekly. Losing my appetite. Not eating. "Why have you changed?" my husband kept asking. "You weren't like this before."
Hello... Hello, Hello, Hello! It's feels wonderful to be sitting here in my almost-completely organized office, playing the keyboard of my iMac like a piano and relaxing with you for the first time in a month. And what a month... what a couple of months, we've had. Feels so good. I'm sorry I disappeared so suddenly but I think you'll understand when hear my little tale...
