Good News – Bad News

Good news first.  Thanks to all of you wonderful people around the globe I now have 1000 followers! Yippee – tosses confetti into the air.  While some of you are more interactive than others and I absolutely love when you comment, I appreciate every one of you.  I have been around the glove via your blogs and have learned how to say like this post/liked this post in many different languages :)

I enjoy reading about your days and lives and from your travels I have one out of this world travel Bucket List.  I’ve gotten some terrific recipes for some great food as well as recipes for things like a cough or making my own soap.  I will endeavor to continue to make my posts enjoyable and inspiring and maybe even educational but I might have to slow down on that for awhile because of the bad news…

I broke a toe this morning and am in a lot of pain and not able to walk very well without assistance or crutches.  Oh I did a number on myself.  You know those movies where the bad guy tortures the good guy by breaking his fingers and the fingers go at funny unnatural angles? That was my toe!  After the initial shock of pain I popped it back into place and taped it to it’s buddy to prevent it from drifting out to that bad angle again.  Then I called DH and waited for him to take me to the urgent care place.

He had to carry me as putting any pressure on the foot at the time was very painful.  X-rays, taping, funny ugly shoe thing, and pain pills that make me woozy later and here I am.  I’m thankful for the laptop being upstairs because getting downstairs to the computer where my images are stored isn’t going to happen for a few days possibly.  Seems it takes bones 4 to 6 weeks to heal.

Well this certainly puts a crimp in my photography and other plans – oh well.

All my friends know the low rider…

Or in this case the low walkers.  Just look at those faces :)  The eyes on these dogs get me every time.  They just look like a cross of sad and soulful with a dash of please pet me thrown in for good measure.  Adorable dogs and such loose skin too.  I noticed that when I petted them and it was all wobbly.  These are Basset hounds, the logo for Hush Puppies shoes, right?

One dog, two dog, brown dog, white dog.  Doing a bit of paraphrasing from the Dr. Seuss book – One fish two fish red fish blue Fish.  There are just so many different breeds of dogs and each and every one of them has their own charms and all are loveable.  The big guy (I think a Great Dane) was a skittish rascal; when he jumped from something that startled him he just happened to do it right in front of me which startled me! That would’ve been a lot of dog to have bump into me.  On the other hand the little Chihuahua was scampering along with the little bell on her collar jingling away when I saw her.  I asked her human to pick her up for this shot :)

Pretty Girl

This little lady was absolutely styling as her leash, rose on her collar and nails were all color coordinated.  What a fashionista! And her coat was such a beautiful color too.  See how she’s even striking a pose here ;)

Easter Beg Hunt 2014 – Columbus, Ohio

The 6th annual Easter Beg Hunt took place in the Short North area of Columbus, Ohio on April 12th.  The event is sponsored by Three Dog Bakery and Posh Pets to benefit Paws Powell.  Dogs and their humans come out to enjoy the day and to go “hunt” for treats in plastic eggs at different participating stores in the area.  It’s always a great event and some of the dogs come dressed for the occasion.

Here we have Stu, some of his buddies and the – ummm – “Easter Bunny” for dogs.
