What a week and it's only Tuesday

We seem to have mower demons in the yard.  DH got out the riding lawn mower to mow the inside yard while we await the return of the push mower from the shop.  DH just used the riding lawn mower last Wednesday with no problem.  Unfortunately, it now appears that the clutch is out in the riding lawn mower and now it will have to go to the shop.  GAH!

Yesterday was just an all-around gloomy, glummy, mopey day for me.  DH felt it was best to take me out last night after work to Shakes for a Monday Sundae, and that helped. ☺ 

Today started off just peachy.  Emma decided to tangle with a snake again.  Apparently, she did not learn her lesson from the last time.  This time, she got bit on the shoulder.  She came limping up to us whining and trembling.  DH picked her up and she went still as a mouse.  So we jumped in the car and drove to the vet's office.  The vet is keeping her today to give her IV medications for pain and swelling, along with antibiotics.  She is doing much better as of 11:00 a.m. and will be okay.  Silly dog. 

Here she is last week coming out of her dog door and inspecting the trench for the sewer pipe.

Oh, no. Poor Emma. I hope she gets better real quick.

Doesn't Emma know that being an alpha dog DOES NOT mean alpha snake??!!

Glad she's on the mend. Keep us updated on our "Poster Child".

It makes me sad to hear that Emma was bitten. Hope that is the LAST time.

The mower demon sure likes your house. I'm sorry about that but please do not send him to us.
