I went down the mountain for yoga class and then picked up Camille from her dad's house. We got back home around 3:00. At 3:30 it started to rain and then it switched to a wet sloppy snow that melted as soon as it landed. Brett went down to the barn to do chores and I started making dinner. It will be interesting to see what we have in the morning. It's been doing the sloppy snow thing all evening.
I'm having a hard time focusing on anything tonight. I'm very worried about Sedona. I kept losing things in the kitchen while I was making dinner -- I couldn't find my kitchen shears after using them. I had put them in the sponge container. I kept walking into the pantry and forgetting what I was doing there. This isn't uncommon, but it isn't usually this bad. I just couldn't concentrate. My brain was with the dog.
We got Sedona in 2003 shortly after we built our house. Brett was still working full time as a police officer and she had been picked up by animal control. It was my birthday. I went down to the station on my lunch and fell in love. She is a mix of shephard and kuvasz - and huge. Sedona is very sweet, very loving and very loyal. Her only "vice" is that she never lost her love of the open road. If the gate is inadvertently left open, she is gone. She always comes home wet, dirty and dead tired. Her escapes are rare though and she has developed arthritis in the past few years so she just gimps around our property. We bought the puppy this past September to keep her company. Her best doggy friend, who lived behind us, died and she was bereft of a playmate. The puppy has been a huge success. She guards the puppy, plays with the puppy, cleans the puppy and sleeps with the puppy. In short, she adores the puppy.
I am hoping she is just feeling off after eating too much horse manure. But, I'm worried. Very worried.
Tonight we had pasta with a bolognese sauce. I made garlic bread and salad (with apples and cheddar cheese) for the side.
Brett's best friend from college is visiting for the weekend. They are talking about the old days and having a good time. Camille and I are trying to hold it together. Hopefully, Sedona will be back to her old self tomorrow.
