Sometimes we look at sights in nature but don't really see. While hiking in the woods the other day, it became a realization that we need to open our heart and eyes to see the beauty of the simple things in nature with each season. There is so much order and purpose in His creation. God has given us awesome beauty in this world to see and enjoy... if we would but stop to see and feel it. Join us as this blog is about stopping to see the real beauty around us...to touch and feel it... "Through the Lens".

NICK

This afternoon we had to take our 5 year old Shih Tzu Nick to the vet.  Come to find out the doctor said he has acute colitis and he needs to stay in the pet hospital Saturday night.  He has an IV for fluids for dehydration and medicine for diarrhea.

We may be out of pocket for a few days not making a post or comments on our friends blogs because our hearts and thoughts are on Nick.  It was a year ago that we lost our 18 year old Shih Tzu Molly and that is still a hurt.  

We would appreciate your thoughts and prayers and understanding about our brief absence from our blog and from commenting on you, our friend’s blogs.

Please take care and thanks.

We will be back as soon as we can.

So, sorry to hear about Nick. If it's any consolation our 14 month old pup Rylie had almost the same problem in May this year. We took her in early in the morning and Rylie was on an IV drip all day. Luckily, for us we were able to take her home with various medications to treat her. Rylie recovered quickly and is as good as new again. The problem, whatever it was, has not reoccurred.

I sure hope for the same prognosis for Nick and also hope that he is home with you again ASAP.

Here's what happened with our Rylie:

We hope all goes well with the treatment.

Animal medical care has sure changed a lot since I grew up on a farm. I had to take one of my daughter's dogs in a few days ago for an injury and it felt just like a regular doctors office.

I am sure he is getting good treatment.

My yellow lab had a bout of it quite unexpectedly. It was touch and go for a few days, but she pulled thru and never had a reoccurance.
