I was woken up at about 02:00 this morning, because Kojak wasn't feeling well, and had pooped on the floor, in Jason's room. Needless to say, I wasn't happy about having to do this, but I was the one who was awake, and I'd rather Linda stay in bed - as she will have to be getting the girls up and to school later in the morning. After getting it all cleaned up I told Jason that he needed to make a pet doctor appointment for Kojak, so we can find out why he has been having these stomach issues.
I went back to bed and finally got back to sleep, and then had to get up around 06:15, because Kojak had again, messed in the room. Linda was up this time and between us we were able to get the girls up and moving, the dog mess cleaned up and a short walk out in the backyard, and then a quick breakfast and I had to get to work. Fortunately, I don't have to travel far, and work right out of the bedroom (my "Office"). Linda finished getting the girls ready and their lunches packed, and then took them to school.
After Linda came back home she came in and told me that she would be taking the dogs down to the vet, and helping Jason to get them there. I wasn't too happy about Jason having to take the dogs down, but they are his dogs and he wanted to do it. On top of that his wounds are in better shape than they have been in several weeks, so I couldn't complain too much. As it was, they were gone for a couple of hours, and the doc was not able to say what was going on, just that tests were being sent out and lab work would be back later. He provided some antibiotics and some special food for Kojak, and now we just wait. Fortunately, what ever it was that he gave to Jason, sure seems to be working. Kojak seems to have settled his stomach down considerable, and Kojak likes the food.
One other big thing that happened today, specifically related to the dogs - the fence guys made some serious progress in putting together the "dog run" area. It looks to be close to the size of our home lot, up in Livermore - maybe bigger, so needless to say, the dogs will have plenty of room to run around, and we won't have to be getting up at early hours of the morning - I hope.
We fixed breakfast for dinner tonight, with me making pancakes with eggs and bacon, and the girls were very happy with it, as were all of us. Its a simple meal and it tastes good. Besides, the girls like the idea of having breakfast at night, and they think of it as an exciting way to have a meal. From this point it was a matter of just getting them to bed and Linda and I getting a chance to relax a little. We still had a few things to do, but it was at a slower pace. Thank you, for all the continued support and prayers. Take care and stay positive.
