Atlas

Love him.  Atlas is my dog, well he was my dog first.  He’s largely credited for our family as it now stands and we all love him like crazy.  He’s a tough willful little dude, and approaching 11 still has the spunk and constant tail wag he always has.  He may be a little slower but he’s definitely still the same guy everyone who’s met him knows and loves.

He caught an “island bug” and has been miserable for the past couple of days.  I took him to the vet this morning and we’re hoping he’s on the mend.  They’ve given him some drugs and are keeping  him there for observation overnight.

Mickey is despondent.  He doesn’t know what to do and keeps moving from place to place looking at me with THE MOST pathetic eyes.  Mickey can be VERY patheticmickeychair

and he clearly doesn’t know how to read 😉

We miss you buddy, and hope you feel better really soon!

For those of you keeping track–fridge still not fixed, dog on the mend, and floors now REALLY clean due to a good scrubbing today.

    I hope Atlas is doing much better and is home cuddling with you by now.

    The dog is very pretty. Is it a black lab?

      They both are lab mutts 😉

      Funny we got them both from the same shelter, when they were each 11 months old –about 8 years apart. Atlas is mixed with Beagle (and who knows what else) and I *think* Mickey is mixed with Dobie or something like that. They are both awesome 😉 and we’re lucky to have them
