My Life Head On

Saying Goodbye

| October 11, 2015

I stayed in bed with Renegade all day today. He was so comfortable snuggling for several hours then would cough and be restless. All day we rested together. It was so comforting having him there. Tonight though he started coughing and just couldn’t seem to stop. When he finally did get back to breathing normally […]

Getting Worse

| October 10, 2015

While I was at work this morning I got a text saying Renegade had fallen after coughing and didn’t want to get back up for a few minutes. Steve kept him in bed for the rest of the day but his cough has gotten worse. I had one of the doctors write a prescription to […]

I had to bring Renegade into work with me today. He has had a cough and its starting to concern me. He is still my happy bouncy boy, but the cough has been waking him up at night. We ran some blood work and took some x-rays. We are worried about a few lesions in […]

I have been looking ahead at the possibility of expanding my grooming business. I have been discussing opening a small grooming area in. Pet health food store a good friend of mine is looking to open. I have been a little bit stressed because I would not be able to devote as much time to […]

Rest and Reflection

| April 29, 2012

A rainy Sunday provided a great day for relaxation and reflection. I was able to sleep in and snuggle up and catch up on TV while spending time with my wonderful boyfriend and Renegade. It was really nice to be able to just take it easy. I was also able to chat with. Good friend […]

The Past Few Months

| March 4, 2012

It has been an interesting past several months. I have settled into my new job at the veterinary hospital and I am currently transitioning into a new position as a pet nursing assistant. I greatly enjoy the work. I also have been able to gain some grooming business as well. I still enjoy cutting toenails […]

The End of the Day

| January 7, 2011

I’m snuggled up in bed listening to music and trying to wined down from my day.  I have had a fairly good day other than the fact that my allergies dealt me a rather rash blow today.  I woke up with the entire left side of my face red and swollen in minors hives.  I took […]

Sick in Bed

| November 13, 2010

Well, Mr. Renegade was sick most of last night and into today. So we spent almost all of the day in my room with me reading and him snuggled up next to me not wanting to go anywhere. I couldn’t even convince him to go outside until 6 tonight. Once I got him up though […]

Miss You

| November 12, 2010

I woke up today and knew I wasn’t feeling one hundred percent. I tried to take things slow this morning, but I did have a dog to groom this morning so I had to keep myself moving. I had a great time grooming Miss Emma. When I got home I figured I would catch up […]
