Bucked off.....

To borrow a phrase from fellow blogger Julie Thorson, yesterday I was bucked off.... not physically just in the emotional state. I want to thank all of you for your kind comments regarding yesterdays post. I also want you to know that as always when bucked off, I got right back up in the saddle.
I headed out to the barn and spent hours grooming my horses. Turns out Harley is a great listener, and his mane is now without knots. Then I decided to take Andy on an outing. We went to the doggie spa, ok it was really just Petco. Anyway we gave him a pedicure for those nails that were overgrown and then a warm bubble bath. He was incredibly good considering I used a hair dryer to dry him. After he was clean and dry we went shopping! He picked out a new toy , I chose greenies for his breath and then we hit the pet bar. The pet bar is a free standing cookie stop at Petco with 20 different kinds of dog biscuits and cookies. I let him sample all the cookies then bought 2lbs of his favorite ones. We had a great day and I stopped worrying about the rest of the stuff. I decided as many of you said, Andy will let me know if he is in pain and if I need to help him
find his maker. I started him on some anti inflammatories and will see if that makes a difference in his limp. As always thanks for listening and happy trails....
