me, Mavis

I knit. I garden. I co-manage an eclectic shop. I sometimes work in real estate. I sometimes swing a hammer. I always volunteer in my community. I live in an old house with my nice family of one husband and three beastly cats. I have great friends. These are the things that matter to me, Mavis.

Tail Wags for Q

I just learned yesterday that my pal, Quincy, has been sick for nearly two weeks, and has been hospitalized since Monday night. The poor guy is suffering from canine influenza and pnemonia. I didn't know there was such a thing! I'm told that this influenza strain began in horses and moved across to dogs, making it extremely dangerous because there is concern that it could also spread to humans. And so, THAT makes it a big deal. Hmm, for me it's a big deal when it harms ANY creature -- particularly sweet Q.

It is so sad to see this guy in such a state. This pic was snapped by his main gal, GG, at the hospital. This is such a different dog than the carefree, happy lad who has been given honorary Hen status (even though he does have that forbidden "equipment.")

It's hard to take, remembering that the poor waif shown above is the same pup who danced around and barked crazily trying to get this "cat" to play with him. That was his first visit to The Hen House and I sure hope he is back up on all four paws and ready to party with us again very soon.

Everyone send happy tail wags and good thoughts to Quincy.

    What a difference a day makes--
    Q is feeling much much better today. He's back to his sock stealing, flip flop eating ways. Thanks for all the good thoughts.GG
