Florida Vacation - Final Installment & My Hurt Paw

After a crazy New Years Eve, Mom, Dad, Grandpa and Uncle John were up early and heading out of the house, leaving me home with Grandma. I was a bit sad.
They left me to drive up to Tampa Bay to attend the Outback Bowl featuring Mom's alma matter, The University of Iowa!
Mom said it was a great game, very exciting and they all had a great time!
The game was played at Raymond James Stadium where the Tampa Bay Buccaneers play, Mom was bummed that the pirate ship was closed, she's always wanted to check it out.
The best part was that Iowa won the game! Wooo hooo! They really beat up South Carolina....go Big Ten!!!
A few days later Uncle John and Mom took me and Spencer for a walk. Check out this great creek that Mom wouldn't let me play in, cuz apparently there are alligators in there.
There were so many great smells, I was in heaven!
I finally gave in and did what I was meant to do, so I ROACHED!
And I roached some more!
Fine Mom, I'll stop. I just can't help myself.
As our time was winding up in Fort Myers, we decided to go back to dog beach one last time. It was so great to be back on the beach, but I was sad knowing we were going home soon.
Spencer came too and was having a great time in the water!
It was so sunny, I had to squint. Good thing Mom uses a lotion on me with sunscreen!
Look at Spencer pose. That fella loves the water!
One last palm tree photo before we head home to cold, snowy Chicago.
On the road trip home, pit stops are necessary. Here we are lunching at Chick-fil-A in Georgia. People, let me tell you, their nuggets ROCKED! I wish there were one of these in Chicago.
Come on, one more nugget for the road....please????
Are we there yet? This is one long trip home.

What a great vacation I had. I will remember it forever! Thank you Grandma and Grandpa for such a wonderful time!
Now, on to my hurt paw. I've been limping for the last week, and Mom and Dad thought I had hurt my paw on the snow and/or ice outside, but as Mom was inspecting my paw pad, she saw what she assumed was a cyst, so off to the vet we went.
The vet, the bestest ever, Dr. Marks, checked out my food and thinks it's not a cyst, but a puncture wound just off my paw pad. The cyst like formation is a bacteria buildup. Dr. Marks cleaned me up and sent us home with antibiotics to take to kill the icky bacteria that is hurting my paw. I'm already limping a bit less, so hopefully, I'll be back to normal soon!
'till next time,

I'm glad that you didn't run into any alligators when you were in Florida. That beach looks great and I can see why you didn't want to leave.

Hope your paw gets better soon.

Your friend,

WOW - big vacation awesomeness!

Fantastic roaching AND chicken nuggets - sounds like a pretty good time to me. Sorry to hear about your paw... hope it heals soon!

Be careful, the last time something happened to my paw I had to wear socks. Totally humiliating.

That looks like it was a super fun vacation, Kirby! I'm really glad that you didn't get eaten by any alligators.

Hi Kirby,

It sounds like your vacation was the reverse of what we had over Christmas. We went from Sunny South Florida to Shivery St. Louis.

We're glad you had such a good time in Fort Meyers. Is there a special beach that allows dogs? It's just an hour and a half from where we live, so we might persuade Mom and Dogdad to take us there!!

Woofs!!! Hope your paw gets better soon.

Jake and Just Harry

Your vacation looked completely and totally STINKIN' AWESOME, man! I bet you could have taken on any alligators that came your way, but I'm glad you didn't have to (bet your mama is too).

It's not really a vacation unless you get in a good roach or two. (Nice form, by the way).

So, is your mama originally from Iowa or did she just go to school there? My girl is originally from a town not extremely far from Iowa City, on the Mississippi River. Maybe your mama & my girl are related?! You think?

Thanks for the pics. You're a natural beach bunny.

And, we are sending you some healing goober smooches for your paw. Hope it heals PRONTO!

Goober love,

Fred said...

Aw, hope your paw is OK! You have such an exciting life!
By the way, I'm Fred, and I just stopped by your blog to say hello!

Deetz said...

Hello I'd love to thank you for such a great made site!
Was thinking this would be a nice way to make my first post!
If you want to pile riches it is usually a clever scheme to start a savings or investing strategy as soon in life as imaginable. But don't despair if you have not begun saving your capital until later on in life. With the help of honest work, that is analyzing the best investment vehicles for your cash you can slowly but surely increase your wealth so that it numbers to a big amount by the time you wish to retire. Review all of the available asset classes from stocks to real estate as investments for your money. A well diversified portfolio of investments in various asset classes will help your money mature throughout the years.

Hello. My wife and I bought our house about 6 months ago. It was a foreclosure and we were able to get a great deal on it. We also took advantage of the 8K tax credit so that definitely helped. We did an extensive remodeling job and now I want to refinance to cut the term to a 20 or 15 year loan. Does anyone know any good sites for mortgage information? Thanks!
