Rough Night for Chubbs

This morning, like always, I went to let the dogs outside. For those of you who don't know about our bulldogs, they are so spoiled!! We build an additional sunroom onto our house for them to sleep in. Chubbs is our "good" bulldog, so he gets the luxury of sleeping on an old couch in the sunroom. Einstein is our challenge and he cannot be trusted, so he sleeps inside a large crate. As I entered the sunroom, I found Chubbs like this....Looks like he had a rough night! We keep that sheet on the couch for him to lay on. Somehow Chubbs and the sheet fell off the couch in the middle of the night. :)

So, thanks for Katy, we found out that today (July 30th) The Cheesecake Factory was having a celebration and having all of their cheesecake slices selling for $1.50 today. Jonathan and I decided to give it a shot tonight. Somehow whenever we go to the Cheesecake Factory, we manage to walk right up to a vacant table in the bar area. That happened again to us tonight. The line was well out the door, we walked in and sat down right away. We decided that we would just eat dinner there as well. Jonathan had a chicken sandwich and I had a salad. The salad was $13, which I thought was ridiculous. Anyway, everybody was getting cheesecake. Jonathan had strawberry and I had Godiva chocolate. The cheesecake was fabulous!! We ended up having a $50 dinner, but we saved $8 on cheesecake Ha! :) Oh well, it was a fun experience!!

Clearfield Avenue

Many of you already know, but we are excited to announce that we will start building our new house very soon! We have purchased a lot on Clearfield Avenue and Jonathan (Wetherington Homes) will be building our home. We are both very excited, and cannot wait for the process to begin. Right now some of the trees have been cleared off the lot. We are waiting on our house plans to get finished being designed and then Jonathan will have to submit them to the city. We are probably about a month away from the building process. Here are some pictures of our lot....

Sick Bulldogs

We had quite an interesting week last week with our two bulldogs. It all started two sundays ago. Jonathan was outside playing ball with Chubbs and I was attempting to go on a run with Einstein (a failed attempt). When I got back to the house, we went ouside to join chubbs and jonathan. As Jonathan threw the ball for the last time, Chubbs went sliding to catch it and did something to his back leg. He came back limping terribly.
We decided to wait and see how it was in the morning before we took him to the vet. The next morning he was still limping, so Jonathan took him into the vet. They said that he had torn a ligament and it could be repaired with a $3,000 surgery! Needless to say, Jonathan was not game for that. He brought Chubbs home and we just waited it out. By the end of the night, he was no longer limping! It was a miracle........or it could've been the delicious pup cakes brought to him by his aunt laura or the fact that Einstein was spending the night at his friend, Tank's house).

We thought we were done with injuries for the week until Friday I noticed something shiny on Einstein's side. When I got closer, I realized that it was exposed flesh and somehow he had gotten poked by something outside. We took him into the vet that afternoon and he was given 4 staples. He had to keep them in for a week. We just got them removed yesterday.

Both bulldogs are doing fine now, and hopefully we are done with the vet for a while now.......
