Welcome to our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. I’ll give you a short Simon update in a minute, but today I’ll be right up front and say I’d really be thankful if these things didn’t go off or better yet, if they didn’t exist at all. We’re coming up on the July 4th Independence Day Holiday here in the U.S., and that means tons of fireworks here where we live.
There is one basic rule of fireworks here in our neck of the woods. You MUST set them off from dusk until the wee hours of the morning on any holiday ending with the letter Y, like Independence Day, Memorial Day, New Years Eve Day, etc.. I think it’s a law here or something. The humans are just plain rude about it too. They, could care less if someone is trying to sleep or if outside critters are scared to death. Every year when the fireworks go off we seem to lose a member of our feral family. They likely get scared and run off.
So, this is sort of my version of a Paw It Forward Thankful Thursday, I would sure be thankful to never hear a bang or a boom again. Now, about Brother Simon. He is feeling some better, and yes, he had what Sister Seal had. Simon had a really high fever along with his coughing and sneezing. He got an antibiotic shot, fluids, pain meds,antinausea meds and probably something else I’ve forgotten. He is not eating like he should but hopefully he will. Our nice Vet said he was very brave. We’re all so thankful he is doing some better and we’re thankful for the wonderful Dr. Anderson.
