Skinny Dippin' and the Joys of summer!

It's warm here, it may not seem warm to all you AZ foke, but for me it's starting to feel a little warm outside, so yesterday I went and bought a pool for my four legged friends to play in. They both seemed to enjoy the cooling off quite a bit. Sparky even fetched a tennis ball out of the water for me a couple times.

I remember today why summer can be unpleasant. Every summer Kasey seems to have some strange reaction to summer bugs, plants or sun. The last 2 summers she got bit by the eye by mosquito's and her eye nearly swole shut.(upper pic. is from 2005) Tuesday night, she (according to the Dr.) must of rubbed up against something in the back yard and it caused her whole foot ankle and leg to swell, to the point she can't wear a shoe. I don't know if you can see it in the picture but the swelling is accompanied by some blistering. I carefully creamed it and wrapped some gauze lightly around it so she won't scratch it all up, but I guess there's nothing else to do but wait it out. Kasey was very excited to go to the Dr. She said the girl Dr. is pretty and her friend. I'm glad she is comfortable there.

I hope she feels better soon - that has got to be hard.
