Well, I think I survived the first day of school. My babies started 4th grade. I only got a little teary eyed (and then cried when I got home).
The only one that didn’t quite survive was Lily…
When I came home from picking them up from school, Lily couldn’t walk. She has a hurt paw. I’m assuming she injured it jumping off the sofa. This happened with the first little dog I had. He just stopped walking one day. I waited until the next day to see if it was better. He would collapse anytime I sat him down. The next morning he was still the same. The vet didn’t have an appointment until late in the afternoon. So at that point it had been over 24 hours that he couldn’t walk. I opened my car door at the vet and out he ran. So $80 = the vet telling you that little dogs can tend to be kind of dramatic and once they hurt something they are a little neurotic and are afraid it will happen again.
I happened to see this at the grocery store and anything that says Southwest or Tex-Mex always catches my eye. This was really quick and easy to make. We made ours as burritos, or you can just follow the directions and eat it by itself.
