Dog is refusing to eat or drink today. She is suprisingly not extremely dehydrated. Yesterday she drank a ton, and “ate” a little. When I say ate I mean I had two spoons and was prying her mouth open with one to shovel with the other. When she got tired of that she decided to eat directly off of the spoon. Today I syringed her some water, she snapped at me. This dog does NOT bite, so I’m not sure if I’m happy she’s fighting or ticked that she took a swing at me. Today she was waking around though.
I’ll see if I can capture her angry face later though, I’ve become doggo enemy #1 after what I’ve done for/to her. I never was her favorite in the house, but giving her shots of vit b and shoving medicine down her throat has really not ingratiated me apparently. I do hope she’ll pull through this for my mom's sake though. She’s been around for about 14 years.

Happy fourth y’all!
So, truck decided to have issues. Turns out the part was still under warranty from last year. So we didn’t get charged for the fix! Just wow.
On bad news, my brother passed out for a few seconds today; no reason. He seemed okay afterwards though.

It’s been a while since I checked in. Let’s start. We got a kitten, she was under the neighbor’s tree and needed help. First cat in my lifetime, so I’m excited.
My brother is doing better, but still not allowed to drive.
The dog, we did research and long story short flooded her system with water. If you can flush out enough toxins apparently there is a fighting chance that the undamaged organ can still filter. She’s actually doing pretty well, but she’s not allowed to have many treats lol.
Last night I was so proud of the other dog, my dog, I’m going to brag on him a little. He went outside and was taking way too long, so I went to check in case he got lost. I found him at the front porch on guard dog mode. In the pitch black I though there was a kitten on the porch, turns out it was a young possum. He had it cornered and every time it tried to get down my dog would bark. Don’t ask me how he knew when it was trying to move because my dog is blind. After I relieved him of guard duty he started to walk away like I told him to, but when I grabbed the possum it hissed and he came back to my side to protect. Somebody had grabbed me leather gloves and a box in case you wondered. I’m impressed at his instincts and obedience, he didn’t try to attack, but he guarded his yard. All day he’s been patrolling the house and especially making sure the kitten is safe. Brag over.
I hope all is well with y’all and have a good afternoon.

Hello folks. I’ve been keeping up reading on here but haven’t really posted. So let’s catch up a little.
My family had a cancer scare with my mom. You know those times in life you have to decide to praise the Lord in the good and the bad. But I am so grateful this turned out to be not cancerous.

Sick dog is doing pretty decent. I’m amazed.
Kitten is growing well but oh so much trouble lol!

I got 19 bales of hay (2 are a friend’s), and we have 29 bags of corn. It makes me feel better to have the feed for winter, but I still have a lot of winter proofing sneaking up!

I’m on my last week before applying for my real estate test. I’m stressing that a little. It is by far the hardest course I’ve done and I don’t think much if any of it is sticking. We shall see.

Y’all want pictures? I’ve got some.

The goats are enjoying the remains of my garden/weeds.

This is my old rabbit, just turned 6. She has an eye infection going on here, always has had trouble, but it’s better at the moment.

Oh, and my study buddy. Wonder why it’s hard to focus sometimes...
