Overall, Dr. Annette said Zack looks great for a senior doggie and that Mom should stop worrying.
Thanks for all the good vibes yesterday...bloggie buddies are the best!

Zack has a vet appointment today for a discolored (pink shade) upper canine tooth, which usually indicates a non-vital (dead) tooth. The problem with dead teeth is they are a source for spread of bacterial infection throughout the body.
The tooth will probably need be extracted, which requires anesthesia. I worry about the effects of anesthesia on an older doggie. I'll keep you posted.

Atlanta Home Show
Hubby and I arrived at the Atlanta Civic Center 4 hours before Cesar's performance, and were the first ones to purchase tickets. The place was empty as we left for what should have been a quick lunch. When we returned the place was packed and we lost our front row seats. Dog-gone it!
Cesar was warm, friendly, funny, and gracious. He went on stage, wagged his "tail" and then lifted his leg on the artificial tree. After he spoke, he signed autographs for an hour, until his next performance. We were almost to the signing table when it was time for him to take the stage again. He promised to continue signing autographs after the second appearance. We had a 2 hour drive ahead of us, and needed to get home to the dogs. I was very disappointed, but a very nice lady in front of me in line, offered to take the photo I had brought and have Cesar sign it, and then mail it to me.
Aren't "Doggie People" just the best?

Two weeks from today, I'll be having lunch with Ina from Alaska in Anchorage. I can't wait to meet Ina and all her pups!
We'll make a champagne toast to all our blogging buddies!

Although I'm retired, I love to volunteer at school.
Last week, I had the pleasure of serving as a judge for the county-wide Spelling Bee.
I was thrilled that one of my former first graders was a contestant.

While Momma prepared lunch, we went outside to sniff the fresh mountain air,bark at squirrels, and chase balls. We lazed in the southern sunshine while Max shared amazing stories about South Africa.
We had worked up quite an appetite when Momma rang the lunch bell and
hollered from the back porch, "Y'all come!"
Momma served a traditional southern lunch, that would have made Paula Deen proud. We enjoyed shrimp and grits, cornbread, pickled okra, and sweet iced tea with a sprig of fresh mint. For dessert, we had individual Georgia pecan pies. My, my, how Momma blushed when Max asked for second helpings!
Following lunch, we all curled up by the fire, sharing secrets and Nylabones. We were disappointed when Momma announced it was time for Max to leave us and continue his tour.
