Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 14th day of August, 2013.

Mid August and the past couple of days have been very muggy …. humid.

More typical of July than August.

Well, this morning did not turn out quite the way that I had thought that it would.

When the alarm went off this morning at 5:00 a.m. – Alvin would not get off the bed.

He seemed to gaze into the air as if he could not see me.

He seemed wobbly and every time I went near him he moved away.

Finally I was able to pick him up and take him downstairs.

I filled his food dish as is our normal routine.

He acted as if he didn’t see it and finally after what seemed like several minutes he ate his breakfast.

Not even really chewing it in his normal fashion.

Afterward he did go outside – jumped off the deck (didn’t go down the steps) and went pee and then back up.

In the house he was I would say lethargic …. I set the timer on the microwave for a few minutes to see what he would be like …

He virtually sat half up looking in one direction for 15 minutes and the last 5 he laid completely down.

Still not his own self.

Anyway it is several hours later …. he seems much better but he did sleep for several hours.

I will keep an eye on him… my poor little guy.

Oh, I did take another vacation day as I did not want to leave him alone when he wasn’t well.

I think I will take him to the vet in a bit just to make sure that he doesn’t have an ear infection or something.

The sun is shining and it is going to be another warm one.

I hope that wherever you are you are having a great day.

Oh, there is a breeze ….. yay.

Special Hello to:  YOU ALL … Happy August 14th.


Always, Carol and Alvin
