On a beautiful windswept day with white, billowy clouds, I took this shot of a lonely pine on Mount Soledad in La Jolla. The view is facing southwest with downtown San Diego on the far right. I’ll show you more of the 360-degree views on Tuesday.
You’ll notice that I’ve added a watermark. I’m not a fan of them, but my photos have been showing up on tumblr blogs and I figured I’d better at least provide the source, since many of those blogs don’t. I’ve also resized, so this should load faster. I apologize if the quality is less–another down side of posting photos on the web.
We had quite a scare with Rocky on New Year’s Day. With no warning, he was panting heavily, and cried out in pain when I tried to pick him up. Couldn’t get him to do anything, and then noticed his stomach was hard and distended. I had just read about bloat in dogs, so did some research on the Internet. Big mistake. Fifty percent survival rate? Twisted stomach requiring surgery? We rushed over to the nearest veterinary hospital where they took x-rays and confirmed that Rocky was severely bloated. Thank heaven he didn’t require surgery, but they kept him overnight with an IV in his leg. He’s fine now, but very tired and missing some hair on one leg. Reminded me a lot of when he was bitten by a rattlesnake.
Here’s a shot of Rocky doing one of his favorite activities, lounging on the patio:
Great weekend, everyone!
