Kelly, you know what's best. If you feel the herbs aren't helping, and they are costing a too much money, then by all means cease giving them to her. I do think the acupuncture does help Georgia from what you've said.
I love that second Santa photo! What a shame that "Santa" has stopped working with that photographer, as he truly is the best one I've ever seen...better than most who do human photos. I'm sure he is in "high demand", especially at this time of year, and perhaps was offered more money elsewhere.
Georgia looks so pretty, and just so sweet with her Christmas muffler/scarf. ♥
I noticed that with other sites that talked only about Cavaliers, I found it to be a bit too much when I first delved back into the internet and the world of dog woes. It is so heartbreaking when we lose a loved one, and I become attached to all of the dogs I "know". A mix of positive as well as realistic information helps keep a balance, in my opinion.
Thank you for the Birthday wishes for my son. He really hasn't had much of a birthday yet due to the 2 exams yesterday, a presentation, and another "case study" he had to produce today. At 12:30 he came to me, ready to throw himself down the stairs as he could not make a certain program work. He was running out of time, and if he couldn't find the fix, he would surely fail, his co-op placement would fall through and essentially all the work he's done over the past three semesters will have been for naught...just because of this one thing!
I put on my "Mummy Thinking Cap of Solve-ability" and told him I would obtain a ride to school for him, thereby giving him an additional hour, and to "throw everything he has at this". He left the room, and I prayed and prayed for him. Within 10 minutes he said he had found his error, and had fixed it. YAY!!!!! He may not receive an A on this particular project, but that's just fine. He did it, and he's going to pass, and everything is right with the world.
It's no wonder I have so many grey hairs now.
Ben is so funny as he attributed his break through to Oliver. He said that Oliver was staring at him the whole time he was having his meltdown with me, and if Oliver can "overcome" with his "silly determination" then Ben felt he could too. We were a little giddy at this point, but Oliver was clearly relieved, and ironically had been listening for Ben as I had noticed him look, and tilt his head (more than normal) before Ben even came out of his room. Henry was uncomfortable as he knew one of his humans wasn't happy, so he had to be in my lap the entire time.
TMI? It was a big day around here.
Back to more important things....I hope Georgia feels especially groovy after her appointment tomorrow, and continues to do well moving forward. Let's hope the weather is kind to our babies this winter season.
