1. We were celebrating something like a Saturday and we went to get McDonald's and then we ate it in a grocery store parking lot. Big celebration...right. Now I think it was cool that we did that...back then as a teenager I was devastatingly embarrassed.
2. One time she said we were going to go to get ice cream and go to this really cool park she heard about. We all piled in the car and then we drove into her back yard. She had a really big back yard.
3. We went to a state park and we were there pretty late. We walking pretty far from the car on some hills and then we saw something in the sky that looked a lot like a UFO and it was close. I remember her freaking out and taking off running. We all followed screaming and running down the hill as fast as we could go.
I have many memories of her and my mom. They were fun times. She was my favorite friend of my moms. She definitely tells it like it is and I like that. It was really nice to see her. she is doing well after being really close to dying a year or 2 ago...I think.
I saw my nephews and as usual they were cute. We are going over to babysit the little one N.oah because they are going to a wedding and Jo.ey is going to be the ring bearer. Oh he is going to look ADORABLE in his tux. I can't wait to see him.
Anyway, I got home around 11:00 and then Sammy was worse then he has ever been. We figured out it was his neck because he would not turn his head and if we touched it he would cry. So we decided we would take him to the vet today. Last night though, was HORRIBLE. He did not sleep at all. all he did was pace up and down the hall way ALL NIGHT and cry. I would try to get him to lay down but he would only do it for like 3 minutes and then yelp and then start pacing again. This was exausting and heartbreaking at the same time because there was nothing I could do to make him feel better.
As soon as the vet opened I made an appointment. we took him at 3:00 today. As well as everyone else in the free world. This place was the busiest I have ever seen it. It was crazy. Sammy was so good. He is a whiner though when we go because he thinks everyone is there to see him and when they do not pet him he does not understand. Today though he was the best he has ever been...even in the car...he HATES the car...although he always THINKS he will like it...he NEVER does.
We explained to the vet what has gone on in the past week and he asked if Sammy had any Bea.gle in him. I said yes he is part Bea.gle. He said neck injuries are common with Bea.gles si he gave him a shot and gave us some pain medication for him to take. He said if he does not start feeling better in a couple weeks that we will have to bring him back for x-rays and more shots. (I hope not because we inquired to the cost and all of it will be 300-500 dollars. UGH!) Hopefully this will do the trick. He said though not to let him run around or jump because that is what happened yesterday. He felt better and then around like a mad dog and then hurt himself worse...So we have to keep him calm for the next month. Hmmm this should be interesting...I wonder if they have doggy neck braces...LOL. I feel so much better now that we took him in! He is sleeping comfortably right now. AHHH!
Hopefully I will be getting a good night sleep tonight and Sammy too.
