Mommy is stepping in to post today. ~Sunny Ray
It has been a very busy summer. I lost my job, but I'm getting ready to start a new one. Will be working 12 hour days and probably won't be able to post much, but will try to keep in touch as much as I can.
I have thoroughly enjoyed this summer while I was off work. I "unhooked" from the computer some and spent a lot of time outside with our boys. It has spoiled me! I absolutely love having the extra time with Justan and Sunny Ray. We have went on many walks and played a lot. We have also had a new addition come into our life. Our daughter got a black lab puppy that I have been puppy sitting. He loves Sunny Ray because he plays with him, but he's not sure about Justan - since Justan just likes to sniff him all the time and follow him around. Going back to work will be hard leaving my babies...
I have watched Sunny Ray grow and become more settled. He still pulls on the leash, but he is so much better on other stuff. He is still goofy, carries around his "blankie" and hasn't tore up Piggie or Tiki yet. He is quite the love bug.
I have enjoyed the extra time with Justan. He is really showing his age and there are times that when I look at him, the tears well up in my eyes. The night before last he went after his ball and slid on the night dew on the grass. He landed on his hip and side, and it winded him. Took me a few minutes to calm him down so he could get back up. He has started to sleep beside me on the floor at night. When we took him camping, we had to lift him into the van and into the camper - which is not easy since he weighs 95 pounds. He has started to "power eat". He scarfs his food and doesn't chew, so we had to raise his bowl up so he at least breathes while he eats, and I have to spread his meals out over 3 separate servings. But when I look into those beautiful brown eyes, I still see the puppy he is at heart. Hard to believe he will be 13 years old soon. He's moving slower, but he's still going strong.
I just wanted to touch base with my friends here and to say thank you for all the love and support. This is such a great group and I feel very blessed to have each of you in my life.
Sending love and hugs to all!!
