We went to the vet Orvar and I on Wednes day. We only had to wait one hour longer than the appoinment said, so we were out from there in no time. Really bad days we can wait up to three hours :-) It´s a popular place and every one knows that emergencies goes first and nobody seemes to mind about waiting a bit longer. They think Orvar might have arthritis, not to uncommon on dogs his size. They ruled out Lyme disease, for now, since the pain always comes at the same place. Lyme disease usually walks around to different places.
So now he´s going on the same medicine his mother does for two weeks. After that we´ll have to wait and see what happens. If the pain comes back they´ll x-ray him. Back in the days arthritis meant a painful life, but with todays medicines that won´t necessary be the case. Old Erna for instance only lives today because of this medicine. Her back is a mess and she got paralysed several times before she got this. Now she´s running around playing like a puppy again :-) But s´he does get mad if she doesn´t win when they fight over sticks :-) :-) :-)
It´s hot, hot, hot outside (and even worse inside :-) :-) ) and I like it :-) There´s unfortunatly no wind to speak of, so now I had to close the kitchen door. Mosquitoes and horse flies sort of destroys the joy of the warm summer weather. Especially when they get indoors. I know have one insect bite on the sole on my left foot, three on my toes and a couple on my hands :-) and these came last night. So now I´ve bought mans best friend, a spray bottle of insectiside :-) :-) :-)
Now It´s only twoo weeks until my vacation starts. I´ve taken the last day of from work before my vacation starts. Hopefully I´ll get all my cats and dogs with me to the vet for their vaccinations that day. For some reason my cats always knows when this will happen and dissaperes a day or two before and returns at the same time I´m comming home with the others :-) :-)
I never remember the name on this one. For a while I thought it might be Camassia, but I think that´s wrong.
Clematis integrifolia. One of the few non climbing clemnatises.
The first flower on a tomatillo plant :-)
Now it´s time for a cup of tea and then out into cyberspace.
Have a great day now!
I have no idea what kind of iris this is at the moment.
Big root geranium 'Biokovo'.
