Delayed Plans to Go Home

 We were planning to go home tomorrow, but my Mom decided that she wanted to make a three day trip with my brother and his family to Galena, Illinois.  Well, Mom's dog, Maggie is 12 years old and became ill a couple of weeks ago with a bad inner ear problem.  She is weak and unbalanced and needs constant care right now so I am staying a few extra days to take care of her until Mom gets home.  When I say take care of her, I don't mean just feed and water her, but taking care of her includes sleeping beside her on the living room rug so that she does not get scared in the middle of the night.  Here is a picture of her.  She is a beautiful Belgian Turvuren and amazingly she gets along perfectly with all three of my Rottweilers.

Here she is with Sophie before she was ill.

Since I know that my dogs will want to sleep with me, I guess we will all sleep on the living room floor for the next few nights.  Like Mom used to tell me, we will be "snug as a bug in a rug."  I'm kind of looking forward to it.

Oh Jean, I hope your mom's dog gets well. I love dogs and I know you are a good care giver and that her dog is in good hands. Bless you all.
