Last weekend I went to the Family Pet Expo in Orange County. I couldn’t make it on Friday–the only day when guests could bring their four-legged friends–so alas, Seamus did not accompany me. It’s okay though. I think he would have been overwhelmed. I know I was! So much to see. Just about every breed of dog has a rescue group present with dogs up for adoption. Naturally I made a bee-line to Beagles ‘N Buddies–and dumped some money into their donation jar and then cooed over these babies:
And I really wanted to take this little guy on the right home with me. He was super sweet and he had a deformed front leg, which didn’t seem to bother him at all, but it made me want him all that much more.
I managed to resist (Seamus is enough dog for our household currently), but as I roamed around the Pet Expo I also managed to donate all of my cash and then proceeded to spend crazily with my debit card. So many fun things for me and Seamus (I’ll probably share a few later, since we’re trying out a few things). And… look who I got to meet!
Yes, I stood in line for a photo with Uggie from The Artist and his little buddy is Suzie Q who plays “Jim” on Mike & Molly. And of course you recognize Stella from Modern Family right? So cute!
I also did some serious work. No, really. Well, kind of “work” but definitely serious. I’m trying to figure out what the best diet is for Seamus to give him the best chance of combating this cancer thing that seems to be our nemesis. I walked around talking to as many of the food/ nutrition/ supplement exhibitors as I could but it actually got a little overwhelming. I’m going to be reading up. Right now I’ve got him on supplements that I got from The Dog Cancer Vet and fish oil pills in addition to his high protein/ low carb diet that he’s always been on (carbs feed tumors…we learned that in the last go round). So I’m curious what you all feed your dogs. Any suggestions? My new goal is for Seamus and I both to be eating better and exercising more. Not difficult, right? Right??!!
Yeah, it’s a miracle I didn’t come home with a new beagle.
