Thanks everyone Our weekend was a bit different than planned.

Unfortunately, while she was outside, Hannah couldn't help herself from eating/searching for any available mushroom (or broken bit of mushroom). I tried leashing her to a tree on a long line, but she continued. So - I shortened the line. Then she would twist herself up in the line and I'd have to stop working, unhook her, untwist her and then reattach her (usually after chasing her down).

A little more than an hour of this and I made put her inside. She was pretty disappointed until she realized the people across the street were doing yard work and she could supervise them instead.



She spent Sunday indoors for the most part, but we took extra walks and visited with a number of friends which she enjoyed tremendously!

Over the last week or so, whenever we've gone outside during the day, we've seen a ladybug. Sometimes on the ground, sometimes they land on one of us and other times, they're on whatever we're about to pick up (ball, trashcan, etc). I have been marveling in the sheer number, because I don't ever remember seeing them en masse like this before and I know they are meant to symbolize good luck.

I had some roofing repairs to take care of yesterday and when I climbed the ladder, I was speechless. There were ladybugs all over the roof. They were in various life stages and they were everywhere. I was careful to not step on any of them. It seems silly to be wowed by bugs, but it was really an amazing sight.

I had forgotten that Ladybugs symbolize good luck! Great that so many are swarming in your direction. Here in upstate NY, when we get an out-of-the-ordinary warm day (like 60+ degrees today !), the ladybugs come to life more so than other bugs. I'm happy to see them and even more now since I've been reminded of the luck-factor. We can always use more good luck.

Too bad about the mushrooms but it's for Hannah's safety. Have a good rest of the day.

Hannah's feeling good today which keeps my spirits high too. I got her CBC back and things were mostly normal, except her neutrophils were high - - just outside the normal range. I'll wait to see what the oncologist says, but hopefully it's just a blip. I've also noticed that she's losing her undercoat pretty heavily - I washed a small dog out of her during her bath.

We've had some warmer days recently so that may be it. The only other bugs out in droves are gnats and mosquitoes.

I'd also forgotten that they were meant to symbolize good luck until I was telling a friend about seeing so many of them and she reminded me. I won't hang all my hopes on seeing them or not, but it's nice when it works out in your favor

I think those lady bugs were sent to cheer you two up! Hugs to Hannah and you. Toby had an elevated neutrophil count once, just out of range, and his vet said it indicated some sort of infection. We never figured out what it was but next recheck showed everything was back in normal ranges.

I love the picture of Hannah supervising the neighbors! That happens to me with the dogs outside sometimes as well. They just kept getting into trouble! The lady bugs must be bringing you and Hannah luck, glad the CBC was pretty good. I have a lady bug living in my house!

Cute picture of Hannah looking out the window
I am glad that the CBC was good and keep my fingers crossed that the increased neutrophils turn out to be nothing serious.
Hugs to sweet Hannah
