I'm stink-free!

Poor Halo has suffered from bad teeth her entire life. It doesn't matter how often they're brushed, professionally often she chews on bones, etc.....she just simply has bad teeth. This isn't uncommon in dachshunds. She's already had several teeth pulled in her almost 9 years but it doesn't phase her one bit. Well, her mouth was getting pretty stinky and her teeth were in desperate need of a good cleaning, so she spent today at the vet's. She came through the procedure and anesthesia just fine, but poor thing has been totally out of it all afternoon and evening. She must not be swallowing her saliva either because her drool is slightly bloody, I'm sure because of the two teeth they had to pull.

The big dogs won't leave her alone (well, let me rephrase that....the big white puppies won't leave her alone) because I'm sure she "smells funny" from the meds and other various smells from the vet's office. So she's enjoyed spending time in my room on my bed in peace!

6 months old and still a terror

Echo turned 6 months old on the 1st of the month. She seemed to be doing a lot better for a while but has turned into a real terror lately. Some days I'm at a loss as to what to do with her. She's a challenge for sure. Some days I long for that quiet and easy life that existed prior to her joining our family. It will get better, right? The little ones won't come out of their room if she's loose in the house. If anyone wants to sit at the table, eat, work on homework, play, well.....just about anything, she can't be loose in the house. She is a TERROR and mouthy, hyper, vocal, jumpy.....and exhausting to be around. This is Echo about a month ago. She's 86 pounds now. Please tell me it will get better......send some calming vibes her way ;)

Missing you, Zen....

Today would have been Zen's 6th birthday. I miss her more today than I did yesterday. It doesn't get easier. At. all.
