Kids Get A New Treat

Stanley has been wearing a boot everytime he goes out now. While his mommy was in Denver the other week, he managed to slice his toe webbing in the yard.Eek!That didn’t stop us from taking the kids to Barrel Oak Winery. A recent adopter was singing there on Saturday and bringing her grey, so we took the kids to go check it out. After the tasting, we took a bottle out to the patio to enjoy the fire.The kids were laying on a blanket and enjoyed the warmth from the fire.Parker was being his usual busy self. By this point, Tristan had had enough of all the commotion, and was happier to go rest in the car.I made another trip to North Carolina for work, and was able to stop by and pick up some bully stix. That’s six bags or 72 feet of bully stix. That’s a lot of chewing.Also picked up a new bed for Parker. That Stella quickly claimed.Stanley showed how to squeeze into it.Murphy said it’s not too big, not too small, just perfect.Stella thought it was much more comfortable after the removable pillow insert was taken out.I also picked up some beef trachea. Thanks Aunt Susan. The kids are always looking to expand their treat menu.Everyone goes to their treat-eating beds.Tristan and Parker thought the lighting was better in the dining room.Finally, Alex’s painting of Stanley and Stella made it to my house. We will find a frame for it, and proudly hang it on the wall. Thanks so much Alex. And to Angela and Debbie for the ‘GUR’ to my house.

  1. I love the painting! It's an artsy sort of week by the looks of it. ;)

    I do not love seeing split webbing. I don't know about you but we see that so often here with the icy winter weather...

  2. 72 feet of bully sticks? Bully for you (lol)
    Feel better soon, Stanley- those pictures of your sliced webbing hurt, just looking at them!! But I love your way of fitting in the new bed.
    Glad you finally got the painting. I sealed it, but I think I spy a few scrapes (sorry about that!)

  3. Maggie had that happen to her webbing too. Ouch! Takes a while for it to heal. :) Hope he feels better soon. Have a happy Thanksgiving!

  4. I hate those injuries between the toes. Gets all gross and gooey. I sometimes use a hair dryer on a cool setting to just try and dry it out ang give it some air.

  8. We have been battling a toe injury as well. Sadie's got infected and we had to go to a specialist for surgery. Now about 6 weeks later, we are down to every other day bandage change. We are both worn out. We use an IV bag that we cut slits in the top and ran a piece of gauze through to tie it up when we go outside. Those things are so sturdy! Good luck!

  11. Poor Parker, Trixie feels his pain on loosing pint sized beds to too big greyhounds. I've actually stoped buying greyhound sized beds, they've always prefered Trixie's beds, so that is all I buy now. Everyone is happy.

  12. Yikes! Poor Stanley, that looks so painful! Sorry it took so long to get the picture to you...Alex thought by giving it to me you would get it sooner - best laid plans, right? ;) Tracy actually brought it to the picnic, but forgot to get it out of the van and with my travel schedule I just haven't been at many GH events lately. At least it finally made it home!

  13. Poor Stanley! Harvey had an injury like that a couple of months ago. He wore a kid's soccer sock and a plastic newspaper bag every day for his morning walk.

    Hope Stanley's doing better... oh, and we need to get some of the bully sticks. Wow!
