Casey was Sick But Now He's on the Mend

Back on July 10th late in the night Casey gave us a scare that landed him in the ER for 24 hours. His stomach twisted, a common medical condition among Weimaraners. Since I knew it was something that could happen at any time I was aware of the signs and we got him to the doctor as soon as we could. A very scary night but he's been recovering nicely, pretty much back to himself except he weighs a few pounds less.
This photo was taken the day after he retured from the pet hospital. Even though it's been 2 months, we can still see where he's been shaved. Apparently his hair is very slow growing.

Confessions of a Fair Goer Part 2

Finally on my 3rd trip to the fair, during the last 1/2 hour of the visit I picked up some Tom Thumb mini donuts! They were all I had hoped for...

Pickle Overload

This has been my summer of canning. Remember back in July I made freezer jam? I have had several complements on it so jam will be on my list again for 2010. Recently I got my hands on a couple of old school pickle recipes and found some really good looking pickling cucumbers at the Farmer's Market so naturally I made pickles! The jar on the left are dill and the jar on the right are sweet. I have several quarts and numerous pints of dill and 11 pints of sweet. Mmmmm, it's going to be a good winter!
