Arthur and Crab

July 3

 Our dog Arthur has been very sick this past week.
Kidney infection, limping, high levels of e coli, not eating,
 couldn't walk (would fall over), dehydrated and lethargic.
We really thought we were loosing him.

 After many visits to the vet, all kinds of x-rays and antibiotics,
 he then had a large cyst drained from his front shoulder.
 My friend Linda loves Arthur.
(She's our dog sitter, also.)
She was quite upset about him being so sick.
Today she called to say she had a present for Ar-fur
(that's her nick name for him)
Special dog food from Trader Joe's.
That's true puppy love!

By the way, Arthur is doing much better.
 He woke me up at 4:30 this morning, wanting to play.
Yes...I did.

Tonight, I got a call from my sister-in-law, Tamar.
The one that I married two years ago.
"Can you come over for dinner?
Bob just got home from crabbing and we also have shrimp!"

 I took a sneak peek into her refrigerate.
Yup, there was the Crab!

Oh yea, my tummy is full!


  1. Soooo glad Arthur is recovering!! He does have a real admirer in your friend! LOL! Maybe a little spoiled, I'm just sayin'. LOL!

    And, that dinner!! Oh, my!! Lucky girl!

  2. I'm so glad to hear Arthur is getting better. You had me scared!!!
