From Russia with love and sadness :( *PICTURES*
« on: June 03, 2008, 08:27:55 am »
Hello BPOers!!! I am back and have tons of catching up to do  :-[ My trip went well...it could be better if it wasn't 90F every day and no air conditioners at all. I was SUFFERING!
I picked Lily up last night and she is miserable :'( She lost tons of weight and looks like a dead walking dog :( In addition to that she has a huge hot spot on her butt. My friends said she was really happy to play with dogs and meeting new people but she wasn't eating well and pooped in their house quite a few times...stinke r!
Soooo, I have plenty of trips to McDonald's and sleepless cooking night ahead of me, LOL!
What's new with you all?

OH no poor baby! She will perk up in no time at all!
As soon as she gets back into her routine...she will be fine; it took Titan about a week to get back into it when we left for holidays!  ;)
New with us: Titan had so many hives last Wenedsay he looked like Lego-Man! That was fun!! He is much better now!

Glad so hear you had such a great time...we missed you!
WHERE ARE THE PICTURES!!! LOL  ;D

Okay, seriously, maybe you should go home. Can you?  Did you at least eat something?  I'm going to be like your little Italian mama and come force feed you some delicious food.
Oh Julie, you are so sweet :-* I finally found a moment and had ITALIAN BMT ;) Close enough, right?

I'm glad to see you back Olesya!  ;D  I bet that Lily is soaking up all the snuggles now.  Oh boy, I hate hot spots, they were a problem for Cara, too.  :(  If the hot spot is too bad and the topical meds don't help, prednisone always helped.  We definitely tried to avoid it whenever possible, but if the hot spot is too bad, it really helped soothe the miserable itching fast.  Also, it increases the appetite so since she's determined to be a super model  ;), that side effect might be ok for her.  I bet that she'll be back to her usual self quickly now.  Please give her a hug for me.

Welcome back!  Can't wait to see the pics.  I bet Lily is beside herself to have you home.

Here are the pictures ;D

Adam & Eve statute



Awesome historic village



My husband is breaking my heart by being a child ::)



Fountain in the same village



Red square






St. Basil Cathedral






A new Moscow wedding tradition to put a lock on one of the five trees right before the Red Square...prett y neat :)










My favorite monument "Children is our future". It has 13 things that our children should not know. Every piece represents one thing such as poverty, war, alcoholism, prostitution, children labor, drugs, theft, etc. I think it's amazing!!!



















Supreme court of Russia



And Lily is back home resting after 2 double cheeseburgers and a bowl of mac & cheese  :o ;D



I will post some more tomorrow :-* Enjoy!
