Old Tow-Truck in the Bushes
Samson's eyes look much better. He's tired from the medicines, but tonight we lower the dose of prednisone by half a pill. I'm already running out of eyedrops as we keep missing his eyes while learning how to do this. So today I'll go back to the vet and get another small bottle while we wait for the one from the mail order pharmacy. I'm very, very tired, but we're off on our dawn walk. I love it outside this early.
I always wonder about the story behind cars and trucks that are left out in the bushes in the middle of nowhere :-)ReplyDelete
Fin bild! Kul att han mår bätte...vi fick ingen älg idag men massa frisk luft :-)ReplyDelete
eye drops cannot be easy to give. i am glad he's responding, though.ReplyDelete
i like this sepia photo.
We get what I call 'rural art' here, too, in our more country areas. Old farm machinery, and old pickups. People can get very creative. Too many old junkers together can spoil it. Makes for great photos, though.ReplyDelete
Glad Samson's hanging in there, he knows his mommy is taking care of him.
Lovely photo...evokes memories for me of the desert visit a couple of years ago. And a reminder that discarded objects can last several lifetimes in the desert. In my part of the world rust never sleeps.ReplyDelete
Hope you get the hang of the eyedrops...it's hard with pets - and kids.
Nice photo--& I'm so glad that Samson is responding to the meds!!ReplyDelete
I can't imagine how difficult it must be to get drops in a dog's eyes. Please hug and kiss Samson for us.ReplyDelete

i know how hard it is to put drops in Jakes eyes, it takes both of us, and we do lose a lot. poor you and poor Samson. i love the truck hiding in those bushes you hate so much. and i keep forgetting to tell you how beautiful the header is.ReplyDelete
I do love the picture!ReplyDelete
Oh Inger.. I cannot imagine putting eye drops in Gracies eyes. She would fight me every inch of the way I'm afraid. We are praying every day for healing for sweet Samson!!
I know exactly what you are going through Inger. Last week, it was every two hours. This week every six. Buck is such a good boy about the drops. I hope Samson gets some rest and you too. xoReplyDelete
Poor Samson. Poor you. It takes a lot to care for an unwell dog. Hope you all manage.ReplyDelete
Hi Inger - love the photo ... but can quite imagine 'the struggle' the three of you are going through - take care and get lots of extra sleep for those dawn walks ... with thoughts HilaryReplyDelete
Love the old truck. What is it about old equipment? I don't know, but it always makes me think about how life must have been.ReplyDelete
Best of luck with the eye drops. Horse Paj gets eye ointment on windy days, and I waste half the very $$$$$ tube. Grrrr. He's very patient with me, but the stuff just doesn't go where I want it to!
Tell Samson he's my BFF...that'll make him feel better I just know. I love your header picture...as it was displaying on my computer slowly, I thought it was a watercolour...lovely!ReplyDelete
Great photo of the old tow-truck! Good news that Samson’s eyes look better. (I just left a comment on your Thurs post about Samson). There is a learning curve with the eye drops (I had to ask my vet’s assistant to show me because I initially had trouble getting it right for my dog too). Hope you’re able to get some rest this weekend.ReplyDelete
Hi Inger .. thanks for coming over to my recent post - I'll be back to read your Mission one - it looks very interesting.ReplyDelete
Scotch eggs - I just put a photo up ... ours tasted delicious ... standard British picnic fare.
Seems a big adjustment in all your lives. Still, we do what we have to do, and S. is so lucky to be in your family. Hope your husband is all well by now. Thank you for the advice about the flu shots. I plan to get mine this week.ReplyDelete
Oh I am glad Samson is feeling better I know how hard that is. You take care of you too OK that is important. Rest Hug BReplyDelete
Dear Inger, I forget to mention on my Thursday comment how happy I was for you that the prescription was not going to be so expensive. At least I thought that was what you were implying.ReplyDelete
Those morning walks sound not only invigorating but also quite beautiful and serene. Peace.
Good news for Samson! Great photo too, Inger! I almost expect to see 'James Dean' to be there alongside the truck!!ReplyDelete
