2 Injuries

This week brought two injuries, one each in 2 and 4 legged inhabitants of our house.
Rob's sprained wrist/Franklin's bandaged paw
 - Our Dachshund Franklin has a bad habit of digging into insect nests, and everything else he can get his paws on. So, this week something got into his paw (we don't know if it was a stinger or bite from a bug, or splinter) and caused it to swell Twice it's size. We took him to the vet twice this week where it had to be drained (a LOT in just 2 days), medicated (he's also on antibiotics and pain pills) and bandaged.
 - At the same time, Rob realized that his left wrist was sprained, so that's been wrapped up all week. It happened from putting leashes for Dolly (Weimaraner weighing 64 lbs) and Franklin (weighing 24 lbs) around the wrist, while holding Sprite's (Dachshund 22 pounds of PULL backward) in the other hand. When Dolly and Franklin saw a neighborhood bunny, they pulled so hard, Rob's wrist got sprained!

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
