Cassie takes a pill every morning to help keep these bumps she gets under control. Even so, sometimes they get out of control and we have up the medication and add a dose of steroids. Having her on the steroids changes things. She doesn’t feel that great. She doesn’t want to play or get excited when someone comes to the door. She basically just wants to sleep in her crate away from the rest of us.

I’ve got a cold that I am trying to kick before my trip. I’m not feeling great and I’m not very excited about much of anything. I just want to sleep.

So I’m going to take yet another lesson from Cassie and do just that.
