~A Sweet Surprise~

 Didn't have such a great week last week. Toby's back issue flared up and with him being 15 years old we didn't know what the outcome would be.  He spent 2 full days at the vet on IV pain meds, (there was a lot of crying going on here!)
After leaving the vet's office on Thursday I came home and found a little surprise waiting for me. This sweet stocking made by Linda over at White Weathered Hutch with a little note wishing me a Merry Christmas!
 Isn't it so cute, it smells good too! Linda added cinnamon potpourri inside it. 
I knew right away where I was placing it!
Having started this blog has introduced me to so many new and wonderful friends, that I am so thankful for!
Thank you Linda for this sweet surprise, I love it!!

 The IV meds worked wonders on Toby and he's back to feeling good!! With him having a bulging disk we just have to watch he don't over do it (he still thinks he's a pup!)
