Scully Gets a Bath

Scully's last bath was just before my surgery. I knew it would be a while before I could manage man-handling her into the shower and then keeping her standing while I washed her. She loves how she feels after the bath, but she hates the actual event. She smells so good now. I'm glad I was able to finally bathe her again. She was really stinky. Ofcourse, she still is 'cause she's a boxer. We were sitting here just now and she was re-bathing herself (licking) when she farted. I'll never understand how something so toxic comes out of something so cute! ;-0

I tried wearing jean shorts yesterday. It's still uncomfortable, so I figure another week or so and I should be just about done. Also, I'm on my third cycle since the surgery and still NO PAIN! WOO HOO! I'm so happy! While I don't have plans for a marathon or anything I may get to start going on walks with Scully again soon. She'll be happy. I have decided not to go back to the same pace I kept in the past. It centered around my job. I plan on transferring that motivation to my biz.

God is good all the time!

Lakota and O'Reilly got baths last night! Lakota got one cuz I knew it would peak O'Rs curiosity and he would come in the house. He was the one that needed it cuz he rolled in poo at dog park...on purpose!

so however bad scully's farts may be it doesn't come close to having to drive home from dog park with a dog covered in poo!

ewww...and I don't know 'bout that. Scully's farts often smell like dog poo!

So you just have to bring them home like that, huh. I've been wonderng about that. My van is about to be declared a disaster area, I don't need to make things worse!

and then notice in the comments on the "victory" post that it's happened before, the company said they would fix it and 3 years later another dog is mauled... how many in between that we haven't heard about...

I read your email and then looked at the blog. I sent my email boycotting as well and have forwarded to friends.
