It looks as though I will have a truly “Empty Nest” soon. Tyler and his friend, Ryan, found a house in “town” and they plan to move this weekend. I have to admit, I’m a little nervous, but it will be a good experience for him and for this momma who doesn’t really like cutting the apron strings.
Oh, I forgot to tell y’all that Ms. Charlsie’s dog, “Sweetie”, has been sick. She took her to the vet a couple of weeks ago because she was throwing up and acting sick. It turns out she is experiencing kidney failure so she is having to modify her diet. The vet told her that she’s seen some dogs last for years after being diagnosed and some don’t last very long. We’re hoping for her to be around for a long while… she is Charlsie’s baby and daily companion.
Since she’s been out of the “hospital”, Sweetie hasn’t wanted to eat the food the vet prescribed. It’s a Purina food specifically for “kidney function”. We called the vet back and she told us we could get her any quality senior formula food. I didn’t realize it was so hard to find senior formula food(maybe that’s just here in our neck of the woods). Anyway, I found some Science Diet at Petco last weekend and Sweetie LOVES it!! That just makes Charlsie’s day!! And we love that!
