New Look

Yes, you are in the right place. Same crazy Shelties, same copious amounts of Sheltie hair.

Gio has been having trouble with seizures again (think it is time for another vet visit to check on the status of things), and last night was no exception. I was jarred awake by the sound of a Sheltie hitting the closet doors at just after midnight last night. Gio had fallen off the bed and was having a seizure on the floor. I don't know if he fell off the bed because of the seizure, or if the fall triggered the seizure. Regardless, it happened. And it took a good long time for him to settle down again. By the time he was able to lay down and go to sleep, it was nearly 5am and I had long since written off the idea of getting some shut-eye and putting in a full days work today. So, since I was awake already and Gio seemed to be settled down without too much twitching, I trudged off to work much earlier than normal, put in a couple of hours, and headed back home for a nap. Seems as if the world is trying to prevent me from sleeping though, as the phone started ringing about half hour after nap-time started. I ended up getting a couple of sleep sessions in, but now, at about 2:30 in the afternoon, I have discarded that idea as well.

Normally, I would be happy for the extra daylight time to practice some photography. But with my main subject still out of sorts mentally, I hardly think a session under the bright lights is suitable today. Hence, the change of decor around here! I had to fiddle with something, and as Life is Better With Sheltie Hair is hovering around it's year and a half mark, I figured it was time for a bit of a change.

So here it is ... enjoy!

your new decor looks lovely! I'm sorry to hear about Gio's seizures. I know how scary and frustrating it is because my 3 pound Chihuahua named Lady Godiva has seizures and i sometimes also dont know if it is the seizure that caused the fall or vise versa.

Best of luck to you. Please keep us posted on Geo's appointment.

Very sorry to hear about Gio's seizures starting again. Maybe it will be just the one. He looked so HAPPY in the previous post running with Romeo. I hope things get better for him. Also like the "new decor!"

So sorry for Gio (and for you)! Hope he is all better soon.

Oh, poor Gio. I hope he didn't bruise his sides when he came off the bed! At least most dogs don't recall the seizures themselves, so they aren't afraid about what happens. Please keep us all posted about what happens in the next couple of days!

With apologies, I am sorry to say that your new color scheme is more difficult for me to read. The stark contrast of the white text on the black background is a bit too much for me. (Not that I suggest you change it because of me!! Just giving feeback...)
