Pistachio Ice Cream by Cravings of a Lunatic

Hi folks. As many of you know I had house guests this past week. So I am a bit behind the eight ball on my posts. Hopefully you adore me enough to forgive me.

So this is a quick post as I really need to hit the hay. So tired, been a long day. Here's some highlights:Spiker Dude went to the vet. I was thinking maybe mites as his ears were inflamed but the vet thinks it's allergies. So they gave him a cortisone injection and also an antibiotic injection. His ears look remarkably better. So hopefully this works and he returns to his grouchy old self again. I warned the vet how moody and miserable he is. Also said coupled with the pain I can't guarantee he … [Read more...]
