And, we have Lepto!



So, I was outside taking pictures of the kids Wednesday and I thought that this was a funny picture. Poor Brooks. I don't know what he was crying over - but he wasn't happy (especially that I was taking his picture!)

Yesterday, we got confirmation that our dog is positive for Lepto. I am very excited about this (now, wait just a minute before you ask WHY) because I have never had a case like this before. It is very exciting AND will be something that I remember. Plus, there is gratitude that you are on the right track with your diagnosis. The dog is improving and his kidneys are improving slowly. As for myself, I have been on antibiotics since Monday (although I keep forgetting to take them...) and I believe that I will be fine.

As for us this weekend, there is an Art Festival that I want to go to on Saturday, and we have Miss Marley's first birthday party after that. There is tons of yard work to get to, and I hope to get to that, because I want to enjoy some outside weather!

His picture looks like some of the older bw images you see on greeting cards now. Poor little boy.

Kathleen - are you guys going to the ALVMA convention at the beach? We probably will try to hit that one this year. Let me know!

I LOVE crying pics. It's just memorable to capture their personalities. :-)

This picture is a hoot. It really cracks me up! That is what Reagan looked like in all of her picture until recently, now most of them are just sober. One step up from crying. *sigh* We are getting there!! Thanks for the laugh!
