Mackie is helping me search for pretty flowers this week. She didn't bring any treats, Mackie, so stop worshiping her!
We have seen this wildflower all summer. It starts out tubular and eventually, the tube bursts into fluff. We had no idea what it was so mom asked her very knowledgeable herb friend, Miss Jan, and she said that it was Lactuca Virosa, which seems to be in the wild lettuce family.
Mom treated herself to a checkered pumpkin~
And we found Holly with berries in our back yard~
The sunflowers aren't smiling any longer. They have dropped their heads. We do see a lot of birds darting in and out, especially goldfinches. They are the sweetest and prettiest little birdies!
Mom had a wee bit of celery that she needed to use up. Celery is not in Madi's recipe but we did add it.
You remember liking celery, right, Mackie? It's good stuffs! Eat it!
He did take it and he ran into the living room with it so that I wouldn't steal it from him☺
You remember how good spinach is, right, Mackie?
Yes, you sure do!
Mom can't wait for dinner time tonight. She LOVES Madi's soup!
Mackie's dad is leading a barn raising in Maine this week. The actual raising isn't until Thursday but some of the crew has already arrived and they are working on putting bents together. The barn will be 28' wide x 50' long with a 10' basement.
Mackie's dad has a special needs duck that he couldn't leave at home so this ducky and his bestest buddy, who is also a ducky, are at the barn raising!
As you can see, my feets pretty much still look the same. Mom applies coconut oil daily. We find that the coconut oil works best for me. This condition will not get better. It sounds like I will have the Hyperkeratosis for the rest of my life.
So mom started me on Dr Lyons Skin and Coat supplement several days ago~

Unfortunately, salmon oil and me do not get along well together. My belly broke out in pink spots and I got itchy very quickly. Mom stopped the supplement immediately and we are back to what my vet recommended. My tummy is back to what it was before the flare-up and this is a good thing. Mackie will be visiting us in a couple of weeks so we can see how the supplement works for him.
We want to thank Miss Natalie and Miss Kirsten and the Chewy team for letting us try out and review these supplements. We wish that the Skin and Coat supplement would have worked out for me. Salmon oil is a wonderful thing - just not for me.
Geez, mom. You could have chosen a pic that didn't make my butt look so big!
