Day Trip: The Annual Cider Mill

It was a beautiful Indian Summer Day and we decided to venture over to the Burrville Cider Mill. The Cider Mill has turned in to an annual tradition but this year we decided to go on a weekday instead of on a weekend. 

Parking is a bit of a problem there and they are doing some major construction in the area!  I have some more pictures that I'd like to share...but I will do that in another post.

Like I said it was just a beautiful warm and sunny day!! The girls were not happy that we left them home...they never are, but they hate traveling in the car so we have no choice.


















Ben just loves their apple cider slushies and the cinnamon cider donuts are to die for!!  The whole place smells absolutely delicious!!



Then....when we got home...we HAD to take the girls for their favorite walk down to the dock!!  They also had a tiny little taste of a donut...although Chloe is not a fan of sweets.

Flower Friday / The Technical Difficulty Edition...



We are doing our best to get Miss Chloe feeling back up to snuff after her bout with Lyme Disease.

  We are also sharing with you our very last Dahlia!  They are my most favorite flower and I am going to miss them a LOT!! 

 Especially because we will have snow on the horizon ... probably WAY before we are ready for it.

Having a few technical difficulties with my computer tonight...so hopefully this one photo will do for now!  Happy Weekend!

Pay Close Attention! Could Your Dog Be Sick?




No one knows your dog better than you do.  It is extremely important to be on the lookout for signs that your dog could be sick.

 Signs that you need to watch out for...

1. Lack of appetite - Anorexia is often one of the very first signs of illness in dogs. It can be difficult to determine if you feed your dog dry food only and keep the bowl full. For this reason, some veterinarians recommended feeding dogs a scheduled feeding at the same time every day so that you accurately assess their appetite.

2. Less active - Dogs that don't feel well are often less active. Many times this "less active" sign is mistaken for "getting older". If your dog is less active, the safest thing to do is have your vet check your dog out.

3. Weakness - Weakness can be displayed as either being "less active", having a lethargic appearance, or by displaying a loss of balance and coordination. All of these are potentially serious signs and should prompt immediate evaluation by your veterinarian.

4. Lethargy - Lethargy is a general lack of interest in the environment. It is a very common symptom and can be an early or late sign of illness depending on the severity.

5. Weight loss - Losing weight is another common sign of disease or illness. Sometimes it is difficult to notice weight loss, especially in longhaired dogs or dogs that you see every day and may not notice subtle changes. If your dog feels bonier, lighter, or you can easily feel the ribs, this could be a problem.

6. Increased water consumption - Drinking more is often associated with a few diseases including kidney disease and diabetes mellitus. If you notice your dog is showing these symptoms, see your veterinarian.

7. Changes in Coat - Dogs that don't feel well generally have a dull lusterless coat. If your dog's coat changes, have him or her evaluated by your veterinarian.

8. Bad breath - Bad breath, also known as halitosis, can result from dental disease as well as other metabolic disorders.
