Today has gone by a lot quicker than I expected. I had a lot to do today, and of course, none of it was fun. I had to pay a bunch of bills and do a whole lot of chores around the house.

Yesterday, I took Achilles to the vet for a wellness visit. Some of his vaccinations needed a second dose. However, when the vet was doing the physical exam, Achilles snapped at her. I’ve never seen him do anything like that. He must have been having an off day. However, from now on, every time he goes to the vet he will have to wear a muzzle. Achilles hasn’t snapped at anyone since that one time yesterday, and hopefully it stays that way. I had to fill out an insurance claim form for Achilles. Getting the claim together is a pain in the ass, but it’s worth it. This claim will probably have us meet our yearly deductible, but that means that we will get refunded for the next claim.

Just now, it started pouring rain heavily. Apparently it’s the first monsoon of the season. The winds are extremely strong and the rain is coming down in buckets. I’m not sure how long this storm will last, but I’m grateful that both me and my husband can stay home. We’re lucky that we don’t have to go anywhere or do anything tonight. The picture for this post is one that I took looking out a back window in our new house.

  1. a story seldom told about jimmy:

    jimmy technically is a rescue dog. we got him from our vet. jimmy had been poorly socialized. my vet would bring jimmy to work of socialization. he knows everyone on staff and they have had very little turnover so jimmy excitedly greets them all. he is particularly fond of stephanie.

    stephenie house sits for us if we go out of town. we’ve warned to not use the the front door since jimmy is very protective. the garage door is fine.

    stephenie decided to take a chance one evening and use the front door. true to feared, jimmy jumped her, ripped her shirt and drew blood. thankfully, it wasn’t that bad. i think stephanie was embarrassed by the whole thing since it took her over a year from her to tell us.

    jimmy is also a member of ca- cats anonymous. he believe cats are food not friends. he has had a couple of run ins with the feline variety. for that reason, our back yard is fortified; a bricks lined perimeter.

    outside the front door and cats, is a fun loving, caring dog. even with his shortcomings, he’s still the best dog i’ve ever had.
