We took our "boat" out again this weekend-this time on the James River. Despite being much larger than the Finley there was still no current so we had to do a lot of rowing. I am surprisingly not very sore. It was hot but we still had a good time.

We got the cats this cat tree last week-here are some pictures of Icy enjoying it. Jelly seems to prefer our couch but at least one of them is making use of it.

Tomorrow is my turn to bring something to eat for our staff meeting and I thought these S'more cupcakes I saw on Sarah's blog looked great. So although I don't usually try to cook things this fancy I gave it a shot. They seem to look pretty good although the frosting tastes more like butter than marshmallow. Still I think they will taste pretty good overall.
And finally additional testing has ruled out everything but chronic kidney disease in Oreo. Repeat bloodwork has now shown changes to back this up. So we have started him on special food and two medications to help him do the things his kidneys can't. He has normal blood pressure and no protein in his urine however which are good things given the final diagnosis. All of his anxiety has resolved and was likely related to the transient brain bleeding seen on the MRI.

Cute Kitty

Here are some pictures of my sweet Icy cat. She was trying to help with a recent wallpapering project as you can see by her perch at the top of the ladder. The other picture demonstrates how she has a tendency to sleep on the edges of various pieces of furniture. She has fallen off of several things already! But isn't she cute?

And lastly here is a picture from a recent Kenny Chesney concert in St. Louis-it was really hot but fun!

St. Louis Zoo and Cardinal Game

As the title suggest these were taken a few weeks ago at the zoo and then at the new Busch stadium. I know there is nothing exotic about the little rabbit but it looked so cute just hanging out in the rhino pen!

Rally pictures

These pictures are from the rally trial at the Border Collie Specialty last fall. A friend of mine took them but just gave them to me last week. I thought I would post them anyway. Zodiac by they way went on to take first place while Oreo had a very respectable 99/100 even though he did not place.
