Lordy, lordy, but I am tired tonight. Sore, too. Must have overdone it yesterday shoveling, but I don't think I shoveled any "harder" yesterday than the day before! I do know, though, that my brain would just NOT shut off last night, and it was around 2:00 AM before I finally fell asleep. Ugh.
Tom started kettle bell training on Monday night, and, while he could hardly move after the class that night, he says that today is worse: two-day-effect and all that. We'll see how he feels after his 2nd beating tonight.
I came in from evening chores about 20 minutes ago, and it was a nice treat to have it still be a bit light at 5:00 PM! And there's only more daylight to come! :)
I keep forgetting to write about this, but I'm just now FINALLY getting the big box of Christmas wrapping paper (used) out of the foyer, and the empty bag of dog food was sitting on the top, so without even further ado . . . .
We bought some cheap dog food back in December, and the dogs seem to be ALLERGIC to it! Now, I know that Purina is a decent brand (although something called 'animal digest' was included in the list of ingredients), but I don't think we'll be buying Purina Healthy Morsels Soft & Crunchy Bites with Real Lamb & Rice again! Maybe it was just that bag or maybe it just hit our dogs for some odd reason, but thank goodness we figured it out!
To Tom's credit, he was the one who finally stumbled upon the idea of the problem being caused by their food. We'd gone thru every other common denominator we could think of, including anxiously watching them for other signs of blasto(mycosis). Of which there were none, fortunately. But, we remained stumped, watching them both sneeze and hack and itch and snuffle and snort like nobody's business. Then, one day, Tom just cast a knowing look at the food barrel and said, "I wonder if it's not that cheap dog food?"
So, the upshot? No more Purina Healthy Morsels Soft & Crunchy Bites with Real Lamb & Rice = no more problems!
