Dog sitting..........

I am dog sitting Winston and Guinness,  while E. & R. are going to his grandfather's 90th birthday celebration in S. Cal. They will be back tomorrow and head on home, Ryan has school on Monday and she has to work.
I like to take the dogs for walks, they enjoy it and it gets me out of the house.  I get some weird remarks about the dogs: how do they get along, wow-what a combination , a couple of the remarks people say.  I guess it isn't often you see a boxer and chihuahua walking together. They are best buddies and get along great!

Winston, the chihuahua, can come inside as the cats are not afraid of him and all are bigger.  Guinness only comes in at night when I put him in a room or have him on a lease, he chases the cats.  My poor sick Kittyboy is holding up in the garage so he doesn't have to deal with either one.  Winston has yet to figure out the 'doggy door', so he does not follow the cats into the garage (where litter and food are).

 I know there are many more pressing issues then a cat, but this is a  little memorial.  This cat strayed into my yard in July of 2003, a little kitten, a Nebelung breed.  We first saw him eating dog food and sitting next to the dog, which was something, the dog didn't like my house cats. To make a long story short, he adopted us.  We knew he belonged to someone because he had been fixed, but were unable to find out who.  Almost 10 years later he is at the end of his life.  He has a horrible cancer growing under his tongue and there is nothing to be done.  Our vet said (of a cancer like this) when we thought one other of our cats had cancer, just to treat him as best we can for the time he has left.  I will be calling tomorrow to make an appt. to take him in to have him put to sleep.  He can hardly eat or drink because swallowing is difficult, he has lost so much weight because it is a chore to eat, he looks very mangy, he cannot groom himself. He drools all the time. I have groomed him with a brush, but that is only part of grooming.  He has been a great pet and we will miss him.

Georgia went in for a colon procedure last week and  2 huge polyps were taken out and sent in for testing.  She is not a big lady, she is little and has a weakened immune system.  She went through the procedure just fine, but after being off solids for 2 days a little weak and dizzy.  Yesterday her daughter took her into emergency because of it.  I went in yesterday to the ER and spent a couple hours with her, while her daughter picked her son up from school and took him to a babysitter.  Georgia was discouraged, so we talked. My husband prayed with her over the phone earlier in the day, she said that was so comforting.
Today she called, and she is going to have surgery to removed the right colon, where the cancer was found.  She had a family meeting with her daughters, and decided on the surgery.  She said she will wait for the results to decide if chemo is going to happen or not.  She will be 77 in July and is more interested in her quality of life then quantity of life at this point.  She is a believer in Christ, and she is putting her faith in God.  She has multiple Bible Studies going on and is taking a break from them right now.  Doctors say it will be a least 3 months before she should continue.
Her doctor is also a believer, and got down on his knees and prayed by her bed before they talked.  How blessed it that!

I find that there are some things I cannot and will not post of Facebook.  I find that FB is just to public at times and not everyone wants to read what I post, oh well on the reading.  I do not want to share everything on FB or with some of the people therein.  I am not happy with many of the changes they've made and keep on making.  All but 6 of my "friends" on FB are family/friends I know personally.  1 is a blogging friend, with whom I have been blogging with for over 5 years and 4 are former game friends, and I enjoy their posts and hope they enjoy mine.   Many of the blogger friends I (thought) I had have gone private or have (just about) dropped off the face of the earth. I guess I too am guilty of not posting as often as I used to. OK ranting is done.
