Wednesday Morning Bark

I'm the only one barking today.  Minnie hasn't barked the last two mornings and I can tell something is up with her.  I suspect it's the dreaded anal glands that need attending to.  I really, really hate this.  Actually,  I've watched the vet do it and there's  nothing to it except to pay him.   But, it's a disgusting job.  I'm not sure I can do it by myself.   I'll give it a try.  She's acting pathetic and when Minnie's not happy, I'm not happy.

Okay, enough poop talk.  Spring has busted out all over in Minnesota.  Temps in the 60s and pushing 70s.  Too early for yard work, thank goodness.  It's tempting but common sense tells me don't do it.  I have to stain the deck this year as I procrastinated on it last year.  This is the perfect time to do it so I will begin that project today.  I think the last time I stained it I rolled my ankle and ended up hobbled for six weeks.  It was Memorial weekend three years ago.  Now I worry more about my back and hope I can get this project done without breaking any body parts.  I don't allow 
#38 to help as he's older than I am.  'Nuff said.

I'm off to attend to Minnie.  Wish me luck and have a great day.

The worst part is the smell. I have to give the dogs a bath afterwards, and that doesn't go over very well.

Poor Minnie, I have not seen it done so don't know how to do it. But I can imagine.

Your rainbow table runner is cheerful!

Give Minnie a little hug from me when your done. :)
