So, I finally got a good nights' sleep last night. My dog, Argus has really advanced arthritis and has kept me up at night - that's why I haven't written in a couple of days. I've upped his steroids to the maximum level and I'll see if he can walk today. The steroids aren't good for him, they'll eventually get to his organs, but in the meantime will hopefully give him some quality life.
After teaching this morning at MCC I'll come home, take care of the dogs and then hopefully start on some pet portraits. I do wish I could post them as I work, but ... whoa! as I was writing that I heard Argus get up on his own to go out! I guess the steroids ARE working. YAY Argus!
