Apparently, I haven't been taking pictures of Zeke this year, so no Zekes of the Week today.

Instead, here's Zeke's best fren, Goblin the kitten (who's almost a full cat now)

(Well, there's this one of a sleeping Zeke and Goblin...)

I skipped one dental appointment because PANDEMIC and when I finally went a dog would have been nice.

One of the best children's therapists I know uses her dog to connect with the kids.

In the before time, I would take Zelda to the nursing home.

When I was in Alaska, there was a family at the Extended Stay in Anchorage. The little boy ran for Zelda and they met, The parents and I talked, the little dude wanted her to come to the couch with him.
Zelda enjoyed being hugged, petted, then starting licking the little guy's hands. He squealed with delight  "It tickles!" and childish laughter rang through the lobby.

The parents and I grabbed a table.
While Zelda and Danny reveled in their newfound Mutual Admiration Society, I got the backstory.
They were from a small coastal village. Danny was undergoing treatment for lymphoma.

Danny's laughter, the Dad told me in tears--was the first time the kid had responded since they arrived.
How Zelda knew, I will never know. Usually, she is reserved around kids--an unfortunate incident involving a toy train being thrown at her by an unruly child.

But Danny and Zelda-- those two became a closed corporation. Every morning, he would proudly hold her lease ("I'm a big boy--I can walk her!") and he would promise to bring something for Zelda when he returned.

Zelda and I would be waiting when they got back and she would not leave his side, licking his hands and laying by his side.

Danny's treatment was successful, (fingers crossed).
The business I was there for came to an end.

But, I and all the hotel guests (Anchorage is a hub for tourists from around the world) watched a little dog and a four-year-old kid face a scary world and revel in a friendship.

Well, I just got a really nice call from PCP's nurse telling me that my PCP has purchased me an automatic BP cuff so I can monitor my BP at home. She's been recommending I get one, but they're a bit out of my budget with being on a fixed incocme. I'm so happy! :)

Good luck with it! My insurance company paid for a wrist monitor in November, and we found out today at my doctor's office that there's a huge difference between what my monitor measured and what they measured at the doctor's office - mine was much much higher, often at least 50 points higher. The pharmacy where I got it replaced it for me, so I will have the upper arm cuff now too. And my doctor cut this med in half, so we'll see how things go. I was going to write this in Caturday, but close enough.

Oh, this won't be a wrist monitor, but an upper arm cuff like they use in her office, except this will be an automatic version. In fact she had advised me not to get one with a wrist cuff as they don't read accurately, a fact I already knew because they tried using a wrist cuff on me a couple of times when I was hospitalized last year before using an upper arm cuff.

Sorry - I wasn't clear. That's what I thought and what I now have too. When I bought it originally, the pharmacist said there was no difference between the wrist and the upper arm versions, but today they all agreed there is a big difference. I wish they would make up their minds!

Kody loves today's weather!  So much so that after a half hour sniffing all the grass,  he decided he will just poop later.  (There might be more snow to play in then!)

Only supposed to get like 2 inches,  sorry bud.

(Is that weird? My mom kept my baby teeth and my first set of braces - said "I paid for the damned things, I'm keeping them" LOL)

Understandable and I appreciate the effort. I've been searching for articles and prepping the Woofday threads the night before so I don't have to scramble to have one ready on Tuesday morning. I've been doing that for the last several months and found it a lot less stressful to have everything ready so that all is needed is greenlighting the thread.
