Dog Day Afternoon

Warm afternoons working from home. I use portable AC, so it gets warm enough to make me sleepy. It was hard to focus on the last of the training I was doing because I wanted to doze. A dog day afternoon. More on that in a minute.

Golden Eclipse 7.27.20

I had two premiers today. The first one I will talk about is Golden Eclipse, a Ned Roberts cultivator. When I ordered her, the seller (Doris) told me I might not like the color – it was a muddy brown. Heck, you know me, I like the name, I buy the daylily. And, actually, I think she is a pretty rusty-red color with the gold outline. Maybe our soil or conditions bring out a better color in my yard.

Chorus Line 7.27.20

The second premier is an older daylily – Chorus Line. She has been here several years and is a dependable bloomer. One of my favorite pale pastels.

OK, back to dogs. I am working long hours, again. Still from home for another week, I had enough of my computer about 3:30 and went out to sit on the patio with my dogs for a break. My little dog, Sazi, was sitting with both hind legs stuck flexed up towards her body. She was barking and distressed, but not crying in pain. She would scoot on her butt to move anywhere. So, sit. on the floor and raise your legs as high as you can off the ground toward your face. Scoot around or whatever – but hold that for an hour.

My pup has inter-vertebral disc disease and has had episodes for about 2.5 years. I rescued her to hike with my other dog because my senior was getting old. Then, her little body started to have problems. She is partially paralyzed but dogs can still walk with no feeling in their legs. Now, it is another 8 weeks of meds and absolute crate rest. And, school starting next week. Ugh, some dog day afternoon. I hope I have time to stay engaged with the daylilies until the end. So often, there are too many distractions.
