Pawsing for Reflection

Dear dear friends,

First I want to let you know that Sir Bear is doing marvelous on his new medication. He is getting around without trouble and seems to be pain free.  Thank you for your well wishes.

You may have noticed that we don't post very often anymore. We don't mean to be gone so long each time but circumstances keep getting in the way of posting.  So, rather than having the guilt and stress of worrying about the blog, we are going to take an official "Blog Holiday".  We would rather you not expect to hear from us than to wait and wonder if we are still alive!  This blog has been a blessing in our lives.  It has never been a burden.  We have met so many wonderful bloggers and their humans :) We will be back!

Till then . . .

Same Old Same Old

We were sailing along, just enjoying our summer weather when BOOM, Bear hurt his back / hips.  He had a muscle spasm in his back and ended up hurting something.  He cried. It was terribly sad.  So, The Duke had to put him to bed because Bear could not sit down or lay down by himself.  We doubled his Vetprofen (Rimadyl) to see if that would help him sleep.

It was a long night because he cried off and on throughout.  The Duke and Duchess took turns going to see him and give him some love and reassuring words. 

The morning was much better but the medication still had to be doubled.  He went to the Vet today, of course he is almost back to normal :)  The Vet gave him some pain pills, Tramadol, to help make him comfortable.  She said he will need to take them for the rest of his life.  Poor old guy.  And if he keeps having muscle spasms they will give him a muscle relaxer.

He seems to be doing much better now thank goodness.  It's a terrible thing when Sir Bear is hurting.  It makes all of us hurt.

I still spend as much time as I can with my feathered friends.  Most of them are pretty cool.

But then there's Harriet. . .

She just won't leave me alone.

She's always trying to tell me secrets.  Mostly gossip about the other Hens.
This is really stuff I don't want or need to know!

And she follows me wherever I go.

Maybe she will be the first one in the dinner pot!  Ha!  I'm kidding, of course. 
The Duchess says the girls are all part of the family now and nobody is eating them. Ever.

Um, excuse me Miss Hen, I don't think that's a very good place to be laying an egg.

Meanwhile, we have been gardening. . .

and this,

became this!

I hope you are enjoying your summer!
