It was nice today-it rained later on in the afternoon and we are supposed to have some rain tomorrow as well.

Last week my 13 year old dachshund Randy started acting odd. I noticed his lower jaw started swelling. I took him to the vet the next day and they told me that since he is older his jaw has started deteriorating and was broken. They had to pull his remaining 3 teeth.

Yesterday and today he has pepped back up and is acting like his old self. He is on antibiotics and a mild pain pill. We have to start feeding him soft food, but he snuck some of the other dog's hard food earlier.

He has been really picky and wont eat any of the soft canned food I have tried. The vet gave us some recipe that has hamburger meat, rice, yogurt and a vitamin in it. I made some of it earlier for him and he at it like it was going out of style.

Then he acted like he was a puppy again- I hadn't seen him that peppy in months. Probably from being happy about the food since he hasn't liked anything I have put down in front of him in months.

Work has been going good, but busy.

The fair is here and of course it is rainy this week! I have to go and eat my yearly cheese on a stick and corndog!

I hope everyone is having a great week :)
