And I need to laugh, because what else is there to do when bad things happen?
This weekend I watched our dog, Junior - the star of so many of my pages - have a seizure. It was scary, and the treatment news from our emergency vet was sort of a shock. We were there once before, about 6 months ago, for what I thought might have been a seizure (we thought maybe he had just fallen off the bed and was scared or injured, but now I'm sure that was a seizure, too).
We talked to our usual vet (who was Junior's foster mom and who has been fantastic as a vet!) over the weekend and will do more with her this week. But walking out the door to come to work this morning was hard. I'm worried that this seizure activity may have happened when we weren't home, too, and we've never known it. I've been with him pretty much every minute for the past 3 weeks and to have this happen right as I'm coming back to work is really unsettling.
So while we wait, I'm just thinking about my puppy......and that made me think of posting these pages about him.....
I was at my LSS for a crop last month, and all the Christmas paper was on clearance. I picked up several sheets for no particular reason, and it sat on my table while I tried to get to work on some pages for my Counterfeit Kit. But my eye kept getting drawn to the new stuff, and first one piece moved to my project, then another, then a sticker, and finally I decided not to fight it, and I just moved my kit aside and starting playing with the new stuff :). So here I used all Christmas papers (mostly B-sides) in a completely non-Christmas layout.
Our next competition is in two weeks. We have not been training over the past few weeks, so I'm just hoping we can qualify a few runs and have a good time. Really, what else matters but some quality time with that cute face?
By the way, if you're interested, we are doing Rally. If you're looking for some bonding time and obedience training with your dog, it's a great way to do it!
