The not so happy fifth of July.....

My fourth of July went great! It rained almost all day long. Sadie and I REALLY needed a bath....so needless to say, rain, soap and stinky dogs makes a good mix!

^me before my bath (notice the muddy paws)^

Since it was a nice downpour, Meagan and Collin would set bowls and containers in places where the rain was running hard off the roof. Then once they were full, they would dump the water on me and Sadie.

^Oh, it was so cold!^

^gettin' scrubbed up^

^But not for long!^

^I wasn't very happy, but Meagan was...we saved water!^

That evening, Meagan and her family went to a friends house for dinner. I was going to go, but Meagan thought I might be more comfortable in my "bedroom" (crate) with music on....I had a big day after all. Plus, once the rain stopped, the Boyle's wanted to do fireworks. Fireworks are not good for dog's ears. They hurt with all the loud cracks and booms.

I would occasionally hear a big boom, but it didn't faze me any.

The next day (July 5th) the Boyles slept in. Then they moseyed out of bed, and ate a late breakfast. They pretty much did nothing that day.....and I mean nothing.
I, on the other hand stayed quite busy with all my toys and bones.

Then it started raining....again. It has been raining cats and dogs!

So, Collin and Kaitlyn went outside to play in the rain. Meagan and I were in Meagan's room watching a movie. All the sudden, we heard Kaitlyn crying....and a serious cry, not a pretend cry.

Meagan rushes out to see what happened, and Kaitlyn had dropped a bowl on her foot....remember this bowl?Kaitlyn was emptying water out of the pool, her hands slipped off the bowl and the sharp edge sliced the base of her big toe open. Thankfully, the Boyles have a very good friend who is also their family doctor (and also lives right around the corner!). He was able to come over and look at the cut. After talking with Kaitlyn and Meagan's mom and dad, they decided it needed stiches. Kaitlyn was very brave and has two little stiches in her foot. She has been put on bedrest for 7-10 days and will get the stitches out after her bedrest period.

^cute little red toes^

I have been laying by Kaitlyn's side for a while now. Every now and then I'll go do something, but then I'll come back and make sure Kaitlyn is okay.

Well that was my exciting weekend! How was yours?
