but lexie almost didn't. she came for a walk with nicole and me and i wasn't paying attention. we got too far ahead, and whether she wanted to take the short cut or just couldn't resist a swim on such a nice day...next thing we knew we heard the splashing, rolling and sinking under the sea of MY beloved lexi. thank god nicole can run fast, she was in that pond, up to her shoulders, grabbed her and carried her out. nicole killed her cell phone, lost her flip flop, and soaked a donation cheque but lexi survived. luckily the vet called shortly after to talk about jed so i asked her about lexi and we decided to start her on abx prophalactically just in case to prevent an aspiration pneumonia. i took nicole out to eat as a reward for saving my dog. thank you nicole!
apparently tunie and ellie got into a verbal argument out in the field, i missed it but i know how it went...tunie would have been giving ellie crap for being a younger, less important pig. ellie would have been whining and defending herself and telling tunie that she was good and a princess pig. ellie would not have any of that upstart foolish pig nonsense and would have told her so til ellie finally went away cuz her feelings were hurt and to look for someone who thought she was nice....like percy the cow.
we got thru the meeting, they are not one of my strengths. i don't get all the other stuff ( like murphy's rules of meeting etiquette) very well even tho i know i am supposed to, i just wanted to get thru it all in an hour...honestly, i am just good at taking care of the saints. the minutes will be available at some point for everyone to look thru...i was more interested in the howling going on in the yard and who i was going to kill.....they did not like being excluded and jewel and IKY were 2 of the worst with cole and copper and maude and lexi adding their protest into the mix.
jewel had a couple of pain episodes, she spent too much time in the lower field and out in the pond. she has been confined to a kennel for weeks so i probably should have made her start out with less fun. anyway, she has had deramax and tramadol and she is ok now. i think it is neuropathic pain...intermittent, sharp and very painful AND the hardest to effectively control. this stuff i know about, this i understand but the managing of all the in and outs and have to's, are not my favorite thing.
i wish i was better at the managing stuff, saints needs me to be, maybe some day...but not today....if donald just sent some apprentice's this way, i wouldn't even have to be.
No snow - a balmy 70 degrees today! But so dry! Alas I have to leave tomorrow morning - a beautiful place!
