Rufus is on the mend, but Riley and Bailey are exhausted from taking care of him!  Riley had food stuck on his head this morning.  He looked like a first time dad that was up all night with a sick kid!  After a quick bath he is looking like a new man.  We had to change our Steeler Bandanas to generic Footballs since the Black and Gold are out of the play-offs.  Rufus is trying to get on Uncle Eddie’s good side so he is cheering for the Eagles tomorrow! #FlyEaglesFly

Rufus basically spends his day looking out the window or curled up on the couch, but in true pit bull fashion he is whining/ crying if left alone.  As soon as he starts to cry one of the other dogs has a meltdown until I sit with him.  There is nothing wrong…he just wants to cuddle!  He has about 8 more days of meds and the swelling in his face is almost gone.  Once he is 100% we have to adjust his diet because the vet feels he is eating too much.  He was underweight when I adopted him, but they were not thrilled with a 19 pound weight gain in 6 months.  Rufus peed on the vet the last time he was mad…not sure I am going to tell him it was the vet’s idea to cut back on food!

The Four Legged don’t know it, but Grammie and Big Ed will be over to hang out with the boys so that Bailey and I can finally get a walk in!  Temperatures are soaring into the 40s today and the sun is shining so we have to get outside.  In Pittsburgh in January 40 degrees feels like a day at the beach!
