Quite Saturday

Today, It's just Cinnamon and I. Lindsey drove down to her parents last night, so we've been here alone all day and will be till tomorrow afternoon.

Cinnamon woke up around 9am and had to go to the bathroom, so I got up then and took her out, then I made breakfast for myself and her and read on the couch till about 11. Cinnamon layed on her bed next to me until she got up and started pacing and I took her out for a long walk. We came back in and I layed down on the couch long ways in the sun, and Cinnamon layed down right next to me, and I let my arm dangle over the side and petted her until we both fell asleep. A few hours later I worked on the computer and eventually I went for a run and came back and ate dinner/lunch, and then Cinnamon I noticed was limping around. It was her front right paw that seemed to be hurting her, so I layed on her bed with her for a while and massaged it and pet her while I listened to Northern Lights audiobook.

Eventually I got her up and we went out for another walk, I was afraid that she would have trouble going down the stairs if her paw was hurting, but she managed fine. And while walking outside she walked slightly better, though she was very slow in coming home.
Back inside upstairs she again was limping, like the carpet was hurting her or something. I gave her a treat and tried to play ball with her, but she only retrieved it once slowly, not seeming to want to when her leg was hurting.

I went back to the computer and worked for a while longer, and she came in and snuck under my legs and layed down under the computer desk, I had to move the chair out a bit to make room for her. I worked for a bit more, but then stopped and started putting away the laundry watching her watching me under the chair. When I was done I went back and pulled away the chair and pet her for a while longer. I then went to take a shower and she came and layed down in the bathroom to wait like she normally does, but when I got out and went to the bedroom she didn't follow me like usual. I had to encourage her to get up and follow me into the bedroom.
Currently she is in her bed, her leg seems to be hurting her very badly because I had to coax her to her bed, she almost just lay down in the hall. I hope she feels better in the morning.
If she wakes up when I go to bed I will probably let her sleep up there with me, otherwise I'll just let her be on her bed.

Rough Night...

Poor Cinnamon. She had an upset tummy last night (as you can see from the post below)….but after the initial “blast” it only got worse.

I bought a new coffee table for the living room over the weekend and started to set it up last night. She kind of started getting all fidgety, huffing and puffing around me like she was totally out of breath. It took me a second to realize that she was doing what I like to call the “poopy pacing”…you know, kind of trotting back and forth – not able to get comfortable because she knew what was rumbling inside of her!!
We all know how it feels. And it is no fun! We took her out about 4 times between dinner and bedtime (normally she only has to go once).
And she continued that trend throughout the night. Our friend Adam was staying over and ended up having to wake up and take her out. Thanks Adam (and our carpet thanks you too). I took her out two other times in the late hours of the early morning.
Needless to say Cinnamon didn’t sleep much last night – and thus neither did I. Mike slept through the night though…so at least one of us will be functioning today. I don’t blame her though…the same thing will happen to me when I am old and can’t get to the bathroom on my own. Things like that don’t matter when you love someone like we love her.
Lucky for Cinnamon she gets to relax and nap as long as she wants during the day today.
Oh girl…I wish I could join you.
Well, let’s hope that she got it all out of her system last night and tonight will be a much better night for all.

Happy Valentine's

Today Lindsey and I took Cinnamon to the dog park in Redmond, we stayed and played for a while looking at all the colorful doggies and then we left and ran a few errands, like buying books and looking at furniture. Cinnamon stayed in the car for most of those stops, but after that we took her to the PupScrub and gave her a nice bath. As her skin we had noticed was becoming quite dry and flaky.

There was a dog at the PupScrub, a husky I believe that kept whining while it was being bathed, in a low moany way, it did not sound like a dog at all, it was quite humorous.

We bought 2 cannolis and took Cinnamon home and I sat on the couch to finish a book and Lindsey picked Cinnamon up and she layed down next to me and proceeded to fall asleep.

She kept making herself comfortable by putting her paws on my arm and snuggling up closer.
She has never fallen asleep on me like that, usually when we put her up on the couch she just licks her paws or looks around until a few minutes pass and she decides it is time to get down.

I think she was just very very very very tired today.
And it was very sweet.

Sleepy Time

Today Cinnamon made friends with a rich black dog named Gladys, and she went to the dog park, but she spent most of the day sleeping. In that beautiful way that she does.
