First, a bit of business. Since I switched to Beta Blogger, I've found several advantages and nice features, including the speed at which publishing takes place. The only snag is that if you do not have beta, it presents some problem for either of us to comment on the other blog. Here is a solution: When you comment on my blog, click "other." This allows you to sign with your blogger name and you can paste you blog site URL in the second box, "website." The creates a link so my readers can visit your blog as usual. It just doesn't post our cute little pictures. I know you miss seeing my smile, but you can always come back here to see it. Second option is to click on "anonymous" and make your comment. You can sign your blog name in the comment section. I know who you are. And where to find you!!
Also related to this . . . if you have your blog set up to accept only bloggers, I can't leave a message at all! The only one I can think of now is Jen (Rambling On). Jen, I have tried to leave you a note, but . . .
Whew! OK, that taken care of, here is an update of Mr. Ali. This morning, I took every one out to potty, and he lifted his left as usual! That means he is feeling considerably better. When we came back in, he was shivering. The morning was cool, but not that much, so I figured it was related to the shock of surgery and anesthetic, so I put him on the cushion and covered him with a blanket. A few minutes later he had pulled his head under and was totally covered. I didn't take a picture of that, but I tucked it back again and took this photo.
He was so comfy!
A couple minutes later, he'd pulled his head back again, almost covering himself.
China stood (laid?) watch over her sick buddy.
Then I said "Is anyone hungry?" It took him no time to pop out and follow me to the kitchen.
And after breakfast, he was joyful when I gave him the plush toys that got washed yesterday while their owner was down and out! You'd think he'd not seen them for months!
So all is well in the abode again. Ali is still sore, of course, and is cautious about going up and down the steps, but I'd guess that within a day or two, he will be the same old bubba he was in the good old days . . . well, OK, not quite the same, but close enough!
Now I gotta get to work.
