My husband is home from his trip and order has been restored at our house. The dogs are on their best behavior in his presence. I definitely am not anywhere on the alpha chain. We have a call in to a professional dog trainer to see if she can help us with our canine discord.
Ozzie is totally back to normal and full of fun. Wounds all healed, no sign of infection, no pain. Sophie is calm and sweet and for the moment all is well. We are keeping them apart for most of the time just in case.
I spent most of yesterday at the mall enjoying some retail therapy to shake the experience of last week out of my mind. One excellent thing that came of the Week From Hell was that I lost 6 pounds!!! No kidding. Got to stick with it so it stays off! Sure had fun trying on clothes.
My DH and son had a super time on their trip to Palm Desert. But they are not going back anytime soon and leaving me with these dogs. No way.
I want to sincerely thank all of you who made such thoughtful and supportive comments during my crisis with the dogs. You gave such good advice and just hearing your own stories helped me put my situation into perspective. My goodness, blogging has provided me with some wonderful friends.
Tomorrow is Shopping Tuesday on my blog, and I have quite a bit that I plan to list. I am finding that I am just scraping the tip of the iceberg in my stash closet! My post is set to post at 8:00 AM tomorrow, Pacific Daylight Time.
