nitro’s ear problems

nitros ears are still full of wax, despite me putting drops in every day, twice a day. its so annoying, that no matter what i do or try his ears dont clear up. its uncomfortable for him, and I wish I could sort it out for him. He is very good, he lets me put in the drops without any issues. I think he actually enjoys having me massage his ear for him. He stands and pushes his head into my hand, its just his left ear, the right one is ok. He has to go back to the vets next week for a top up booster shot, I might ask her to deep clean his ears for me. I also have an ear cleaning solution that I also clean out his ears with. The poor pup he’s such a good dog. and he’s so uncomfortable. I hate seeing him suffering. I love my boy so much and I’d never want him to suffer in any way. I wish there was a magic cure.

3 cups of coffee later…

And I think I’m ready to face my day…
I’m up, been up since 1:30 AM, showered, dressed…feel more like myself now…
Its 5:30 now, will feed nitro at 7, let him out, need to book my taxi soon so I can get to my apts…
I think more coffee is in order soon…how many cups of coffee do you need to make it through the day?
Can you survive without it? For those of you who dont drink coffee, what do you drink, or use to get through the day?

#SoCs sup?

s’up, yall?
its Monday here already. Where on earth did Sunday go?
I spent my day lazing around my parents house. Feeling hot and sweaty. Trying to stay cool.
No matter what I did though, cool I was not feeling.
Dad cooked us a lovely dinner which I hungrily ate.
I read for a while. Not long though. I was too lazy to sit and finish my book. So I went online, and read blogs, and email. I got caught up on email but not on blog posts.
I talked to two friends on the phone. That took up about 2 hours. We had a great catch up.
I played with the dogs. Those dogs are a hoot. My dads looking after my sisters two pugs, man are they a handful. They’re so spoiled. Of course every time he goes out of the room and comes back, he has a biscuit for them. So not only are they spoiled but they’ll be getting fat too.
I just made coffee and am sipping it while I write this. It will be or should be bedtime soon for me but well I doubt I’ll go to bed tonight, I’m just too hot to sleep.
So how about ya’ll, s’up with you?

no sleep feel tired but getting through

i never did get any sleep last night. i tossed and i turned but no sleep. it was hot. i felt sick with the heat.
i eventually got up at 7 and jumped in a cool shower. feeling much better now. had breakfast and feel normal now again lol.
we decided to go out a little later today I think mom said we’d get the 1 Pm train to cobh. It will be nice to relax in cobh and eat our picnic and then take a walk about and then finish up the afternoon in one of the local bars.
hopefully i can last the day. my dads looking after the four dogs. i decided I wouldnt take nitro. Its far too hot for him to be out and I’d have to try to carry water for him and its just not feesable to be bringing him out in the scortching heat.
so yeah. sitting here drinking a cup of tea still in my pj’s. it feels nice. i’ve the whole morning ahead of me. surprising enough I am not feeling the tiredness now.

nitro is so happy in the sun

nitro is just loving the sunshine, well thats when he’s not exhausted from it, but yesterday, I gave him an empty water bottle, and he proudly pranced around the garden with it in his mouth, teasing our dads dog biggie as if to say, look what I got lol. Biggie tried to then chase him, but nitros way too fast and can easily run rings around him. Well biggie is 12, and a little bit on the chubby side so…no wonder nitro can run faster than he can lol.
but he really enjoyed playing in the garden, he loves going to my parents house, as there is another dog to play with, and he enjoys that, and today my parents will be taking on my sisters two pugs, while she’s off to spain for two weeks.
