Today is January 10, 2012

Guess it is time to do a bit f Blogging  and up date this thing.  Well this morning I woke up about 5:45am and realized that the power has been off for a while. My watch and Wendy's clock said 5:45 but all the electric clocks said 12:58am.  I thought well we had a power failure sometime in the night and then found that we also didn't have any water. I had to put our old dog Madison out. Then I saw that she had messed on the floor. She is 16 1/2 years old and has lost some of the use of her back legs and now seems to not be able to control her self.  We have been talking about putting her down but that is easier said then done. I never thought that I could get so attached to a dog.The thought of putting her to sleep for good is not an easier thing to do. I worry that she is hurting but  she doesn't complain so how do you know? We are planning to go to Chile in a about 8 day and I don't think she would survive the kennels for 6 weeks. I just let her out of the garage and she fell twice going toward the back garden. This morning I called the vet and have an appointment at 4:30 pm to have her put down.
There is going to be a few sad, sad days around here.  I sure will miss her. She has been a real good dog and a faithful old hound. Guess I'll have to learn to chase my own frizz-be  or ball eh??

 Well I had better get going as the roads are not that great after this silly little snow we had this morning. sigh.
