Where the heck did this week go?
I swear it was just Monday!
I guess it was a busy week then so let’s get started!
Here on the blog we talked about another crazy incident that I had while walking Leroy.
It also appears that someone on Twitter was concerned about that post and advised me to stay away from the police because they were going to shot my dog. Settle down Twitter person.
We also talked about Leroy’s barking issue and how I’m going to get help for that! And I posted our first YouTube video! See Sherman and Leroy are real dogs and they move too!
My favorite post of the week was the 2nd Annual Human Shaming Blog Hop! Thanks to everyone who joined in and don’t forget, if you didn’t have a chance to join the fun you still have time!
My favorite picture of the week was this one that Gracie took of Leroy and I.
I posted it on Facebook and Instagram but if you missed it here it goes!
In other news:
I made dinner 4 nights this week. I came up short on Thursday. I don’t know went wrong there, so we ate Mexican.
Bobby injured his MCL at football practice on Tuesday. MCL is a Medial Collateral Ligament. I had no idea there was such a ligament and apparently it’s the ligament on the side of the knee that connects the thighbone to the bone of your lower leg.
Dear Lord, please stop the ligament injuries!
Thankfully, Bobby’s injury is only minor and he should be back to practicing later next week as long as he rests.
And Sherman had his first hydrotherapy session on Thursday!
I’m not gonna lie. It was a little scary. It took 3 of us to get him into the tank and I swear at first I thought he was going to have a heart attack when the water started coming in. He was quivering and tried to jump out but after a little bit of reassurance he did fine.
He had a 2 minute session that day and we will be going twice a week in the month of October and each time the sessions will increase by 2 minutes. One month from today the vet will measure his muscle mass in his back legs and see if its improving and we will go from there. I promise to get a video as soon as Sherman is more relaxed.
I’ve also added in a new routine during the week since I’m becoming claustrophobic in the house. A few days during the week, at lunchtime, Leroy and I will take a ride down to the local ball fields and walk around the track. It’s nice to get out and we’ve met some very friendly people. Wednesday we met a man named Dan. Dan was there alone going for a stroll but we talked for 20 minutes about his Terrier that he has at home. It appears as though Dan’s dog is the grandson of the spokesdog for Mighty Dog. How fun! Oh…and Dan likes to talk……. a lot.
So that’s about it for this week. Hope you have a great weekend!
