wirencreative Found out why Dieter got so sick in Saturday. The blood matted fur came off of that spot this evening. Nasty bite! Must have been playing too rough with his big bro. 2d
  •   fantailmedia Ouch:( 2d
  •   wirencreative @fantailmedia Luckily he is back to his usual puppy self, ripping back and forth through the apartment, playing with his brother or his own imagination. 2d

wirencreative Dieter is a sick baby today. I woke up to find him shivering, hot to the touch, lethargic, and he didn't come when I fed Émile, nor drank any of the water I bring to him.
I carried him outside and he went potty and ate some grass. When we came back in I put him in the tub with cold water and scooped it up to his belly and over his head - poor guy was probably thinking, "why are you torturing me when I already feel so awful?" Once out of the tub, he went and curled up on a pillow on the couch and continued to shiver, so I put a towel on him and he snuggled in and fell asleep.
A little later his temperature seemed to have come down, but still there. I tried to get him to drink water but only got timid licks when I put water on my fingers and put them in front of his face - but that's better than nothing. I also got him to eat some pumpkin purée from a spoon and he seemed to like that but still only ate about ¼ cup, if even that. The pumpkin has a fair amount of moisture, is good for sick pups, and tastes good.
Slept for another hour, repeated the water and food, temperature lower yet.
Then, just now, the door buzzer rang (someone coming to buy a Craigslist item), and he got up and went to the door, although a bit slower than normal and wagged his tail and greeted our visitor. Now, he refused water again and is curled up on the floor, sleeping.
I was really worried until he jumped up to say hi to the girl who came to the door; now I think he's going to be okay, just needs an easy day or two.

  •   fantailmedia Hope he's ok. 5d
  •   wirencreative Thank you @fantailmedia I just went to get a few pieces of his dog food for him and he came in to the kitchen when I opened the food bin. I only gave him ⅓ of his normal scoop, to make sure he won't just throw it up or anything, but he was nosing at the food bin asking for more. Will give him more in about half an hour. 5d
  •   wirencreative He also has a cold wet nose again. :) 5d

wirencreative Taking a break from packing to make apple butter. Num! 6d
  •   wirencreative OMG! I could eat the entire batch of this in one sitting just as apple sauce! This is so much better than the store bought kind! I've added all the ingredients now, cinnamon, cloves, etc, and it's cooking on the stove. Every time I go to stir it, it takes major self-control to not start spooning it all into my mouth. 6d

wirencreative My mother isn't going to believe this. She'll be absolutely shocked. These are all of the art books I am selling/donating. I'm only keeping FIVE of the large folio art books and six of the smaller books of art essays. 2w
  •   wirencreative Of the 5 large books I am keeping, one has my review of it is quoted on the back. Another is a guide to portraits at the Louvre, another, in French, is about the development of representations of humans from the prehistoric. One is on acrylic painting technics and the last is about abstract photography. 2w

wirencreative There is quite the variety of music at this event. Barbette Bastille Day Block Party. #bastilleday #minneapolis 2w
  •   wirencreative Only thing is, none of it seems related to France or French culture except for some French performance art group between music performers. The tents aren't even related: some jewelry, t-shirts that say MPLS, local music station and entertainment newspaper. I don't even see anything from the local French society/school. 2w
  •   wirencreative Not even a French flag! 2w
