Can I borrow a Cat?

Well, it's happened.
After living here almost 30 years with no problem like this, I think we are being visited by a rodent.
When I went to get a package of breakfast bars out of the "pantry closet",
the bottom of the box had obviously been chewed.
It's bad enough imagining what's in there (I haven't seen anything yet thankfully),
but what really creeps me out is that i cleaned that closet out about 2 weeks ago!
I really think I need to borrow a cat.

24th Annual For Women Only 5K Run/Walk

Kiki gave a good race report, but she forgot to mention a couple of interesting things. When we got to the race , we went inside the health center in search of a bathroom. There was a such a long line, we joined some other women in the much smaller line at the men's bathroom. After all, it was a women's only race :-)
The other thing she didn't mention was the 2 times I tripped. Luckily I caught myself before I actually fell.

    Fun At the Lake

    Shortly after I arrived at the cottage yesterday, as I was cleaning the remains of Jake's upset stomach out of the back of the highlander and the pups were racing around the yard, three young girls came by on bicycles with Lucky the Lab and another little yippy dog.
    The two dogs came racing into our yard barking and of course the 3 pups were also barking. The girls stopped at the end of the driveway and attempted to call the 2 dogs, but they were all too involved to notice. I finally had to get the Dazer. The Lab and the yippy dog left pretty quickly. A great tool to have.

    C and I walked down to the island yesterday to look at a new house they just built. Suprisingly, the doors were unlocked so we could take a tour.

    I then went for a run/walk. I went down Seneca to P-50 and then was going to take P-50 back home.
    After 1/2- 1 mile?, not sure how far, dodging traffic, I had doubts that I was going in the right direction. I called C and started to walk back to Seneca. He came to pick me up, which was lucky, since I was barely in the car when it started raining pretty heavily.

    This morning when I took the pups out at 6:30, we saw 4 deer run across the road and into the woods.

    I almost forgot, I bought a treadmill on Thursday. While the prospect of carting it in and out of the truck, carrying it upstairs and spending hours assembling it sounds like fun, I'm having it delivered and set up.

    While we we're enjoying our time in Europe, the dogs were enjoying their time at the doggy marriot.
  • Sylvania Veterinary Hospital
  • We picked up the pups from boarding on Friday.
    Blue survived his first time boarding just fine.
    Aussie and Jake are kenneled together, but Blue was on his own.
    Blue got to go to the spa with it's underwater treadmill.
    I'm sure he would have preferred to go to doggy day care, but I was afraid he would reinjure his leg jumping around.
    They all got extra attention with their spruce ups.
    It's always nice when they're able to be boarded there because when they come home, it's like they've never been gone.

    On another note, the vet called when we were gone, and he received more results from Jake's thyroid test. Jake does have low thyroid, so he is now on medication.
    Hopefully it'll give him more energy and help with his weight loss.
