Snips is....well, she is. Blind, but SG and I both think she can see shadows. Her hearing is better - she actually perked up when SG came in the house earlier. She's not as "drunk" when she walks. She lets us know when we wants something - by whimpering.

But. She's not eating - we had to use a syringe to force beef broth and milk down her. She's not drinking. She spends most of her time either asleep or wandering around the house, bumping into walls. :sigh:

Still. She's better than she was - so we are still hoping for improvement. The other dogs are curious, but not picking on her - which is a relief.

In other news....SG bought me a nice bench for the studio - it has storage; it replaced the crummy fabric boxes we were using for the milking stuff. It looks MUCH nicer in there now!

I found yarn for another present - it won't be ready for the start of Hanukkah, but I have hopes of being able to ship it off during. :grin:

A note about gifts: I LIKE giving stuff to people. I don't expect anything in return - I just like *giving*. Not to make me look good, or generous, or whatever - I just like being able to show the people I like/love that I care. Some people have a problem with that - please, if I send you something, accept in the way it was intended. I saw it, thought of you, and happily grabbed it to send to you. NOT to make me look good/better/whatever....am I making sense? I've run into problems in the past with recipients thinking they needed to reciprocate - nope, not at all! Wanna do something in return? A quick "thanks" and a quick prayer is all I need. :nods:

Not much else - it's 36* right now. We have a nice fire going in the wood stove; Snips is dozing on the couch soaking up the heat, and the kids are cleaning the house. (:huzzah!:) Hope your day is as nice! I gotta get knitting!

I like to give people things too, but I get caught up in the reciprocity mess too often. I wish we could just find awesome stuff, give it to people, and not worry about occasions.

Of course, with my tastes, I'll still want Bill Gates' bank account. Why he won't send me his cc#... harumph.
