Busy Week

Sorry I  havent been posting much.  Ive been to tired by the end of the day, I just cant do it.  Plus nothing great has been happening.  I cant remember what day this happened but I was walking the dogs at the park.  These two ladies were walking toward me with a lab.  So I stepped off the path so the dogs wouldnt get close to each other.  Well all of a sudden I see a snake right in front of me.  Guieness had already passed it but Miley and I hadnt.  I kinda screamed but with my mouth closed. Pulled Miley back while trying to get Guiness to swing wide and come back to me. And I was stepping backwards back onto the path.  I almost fell into the ladies with a dog.  They looked at me like I was crazy. I was finally able to say, Im sorry but there is a snake.  They didnt seem to impressed. They just said, "really where?".  I showed it to them and they didnt even know what kind it was.  They still werent impressed.  For me, my heart is racing and its all I can think about. "Oh my god, I almost stepped on a snake".  My husband was with me and at that point we turned around and started walking back.  He starts talking to me and then says, "are you listening to me?".  I told him "NO, Im still thinking about almost stepping on the snake". I have a picture , but it wont load right.

Mileys foot is slowly getting better.  I  took her back to the vet on Tuesday because she was limping so bad that morning in the street.  But he couldnt find anything in her foot.  He looked at it and saw something shinning but it was just drainage.  Funny thing was he didnt even think she had a splinter in her foot.  So why was that drainage there?  So anyway that was a waste of money.   But later that night we walked at the park and no limping on any surface.  So that was good.  In the morning on our street she limps sometimes when we get all the way to the back of the neighborhood.  But otherwise I havent seen anything.  She still has that spot on her foot. Its a little darker but still there.

These pictures are from the park this week.



 These pictures didnt come out the way I wanted them to. I couldnt get Miley to stay right there while taking the picture.


And sorry but spell check isnt working.

Glad that Miley's foot is healing...hope it's all the way back to normal soon!

Oh god, I bet the snake encounter was scary!

I wonder if Miley's hurt a muscle or something, rather than hurt her paw. Very strange. Hope she feels better soon.

I LOVE that third photo. It's amazing!

I've come close to stepping on snakes too. Wonder why they don't hear me, a big old human and a running crazy dog coming? But you seem to have more than your share!

I love that 2nd shot - Miley looks like she's saying "can you see me hiding here :)"

I really like the second pic. Did they x-ray the foot? One time Oreo had a draining tract in his pad and it turned out to be a broken toe.
