feeling better

i’m feeling much better now. the bout with the stomach flu appears to be over and i am doing just fine. we have kiara, koda’s sister, over at our place right now and we are dogsitting while henry is in LA. koda and kiara together are a handful. they are both bad influences on each other. individually, they are well-behaved dogs, but when the two of them are together, they become so much harder to handle.

the crazy thing is that kiara is a lot stronger than koda and so when she struggles against me, it takes a considerable amount of effort to keep her in check. i know that we really need the recent rain and i’m thankful that we are getting it, but now it is so much more of a struggle to keep the carpets clean when the dogs come in from the backyard. it looks like i will be investing in a carpet cleaner soon.
