Scrappy's sick day...

After the big tussle last Friday that Super JP broke up, Scrappy had a little lump under her throat. Also, she's been doing this weird, annoying sound like a cat coughing up a fur ball kinda, this has been going on for about a month. She'd wake up in the middle of the night (in bed with us of course) and start hacking. Anyway, the lump didn't do down and we got worried that it might be a tumor or something really bad cutting off her air or choking her (I'm thinking worse case scenario here.) So today we went to see the doctor. Who knew that dogs do reverse sneezes? In all my life I've never heard of that. The lump is from the dog fight where Daisy or Corrie tagged her under the neck. Doc said it's nothing to worry about, it's just water in there and will be reabsorbed into her little body. So she came home with an antihistamine and story to tell. We are so thankful that she's healthy.

Scrappy is so funny because when it's time to go she goes to the door that leads to the garage (that's the look right there "come on!") That's where she used to wait for JP when they were leaving for the week of trucking. We are also thankful that JP works close to home and can come home every night now. Praise the Lord for this job! Weekend blessings from the holler.

Oh poor little Scrappy. I hope he recovers soon.
And mayne I missed it somewhere or this is something new, JP is working close to home now? That's great! Is he still driving tractor trailer?

Scrappy is gonna be fine. There's something blooming that tickles her nose probably.
JP is a systems analyst and is blessed to be back in the field he's trained for. We're all happy about that.
