animals and boats…

winnie seems to be handling his diabetes diagnosis pretty well.  i can give him a shot now without freaking him out, and of course kevin has been an expert at it for a very long time.  i took this picture as winnie dozed with his head on kevin’s comfy keyboard, but he looked up at me because he wasn’t in the mood for a photo.  or maybe he was hoping for some more food.

he had lost four pounds in five weeks, a huge amount, but he’s managed to gain a pound back.  but now we have to make sure he doesn’t gain it all back!  because i guess winnie will always be dying for all the food he can get his paws on, no mater what.

randy finally named his cute new kitties.  he named the other one “miss kitty.”

Pee Wee!

amy took her dogs for a walk, but noodle got tired so luckily she carries a huge stroller in the back of her car.  he looks like the happiest dog ever, doesn’t he?

super happy noodle

poor les was sleeping next to kevin and sunk way down in the cushions.  but he didn’t care.

erica sent me this picture – she sits on a bench to study and had piled her books on the bench behind her so her desk wouldn’t be cluttered, but heidi realized it would be the perfect place for both of them to be.  it looks like heidi has adjusted to the move with no problem.

over the weekend, we went up to northern illinois to visit with kevin’s family.  we took a two-hour cruise on a paddle boat up the Rock River on sunday, which was fun.  it was a perfect day, and there were a few houses along the shore.  i loved this house perched up so high, but first of all, they don’t seem to have any kind of balcony, and secondly, some trees obscure their view.  i wish i knew the story of the people who live there.  maybe they don’t care so much about the view of the river?

here’s another house, nestled farther into the woods.  but it looks like they have a better view plus a balcony.  both of which are critical if you’re living in such a scenic place!

as we cruised, i kept thinking about how wild and beautiful this place was…but then i thought about the fact that the weather isn’t so great up there, and how kevin talks about how we get way less snow and bitter cold here in central illinois.

here’s poor jack, jill’s darling doggie, who had cancer on his paw.  they managed to cut it out, but now he has to wear this big bandage and i’m sure it’s not so easy for him to get around.  poor pupy.

poor jack!

poor jack!

and speaking of sad animals…while we were gone, none of the kitties were allowed outside, and les was quite upset by this.  very, very upset.

les, so upset

it was a bit chilly when amy took her dogs for a walk, so she fashioned this erzatz coat for mincy out of a t-shirt and a scarf.  he’s so stylish!

we’ve seen this cute little boat quite a bit over the summer, and i want to know who owns it and what it’s called, and i want a ride!  they never come close enough to the shore to get a good photo, but it’s like a little tugboat in the front and a pontoon in the back.  so cute!  i want one!  well, i guess i don’t know why, exactly, you’d need that front part, but i want a ride on it!

ok, one million plus things to do today, and i’m already late…
