Gin + Tonic + Blood Orange Soda = Fabulousness

I had never had a gin and tonic before last weekend when my boyfriend's dad introduced me to the wonderfulness that is Tanqueray. Get some diet tonic water and some blood orange soda from Cost Plus. AMAZING............

Ralph (the beagle) had a seizure today. Normally he has them when it's hot or he is stressed out. Today he had an uncharacteristically bad one. It was about 95 degrees. He came running out from the bedroom into the living room where I was sitting. He put his right paw up and then his whole body dropped to the ground and he convulsed. He peed on the floor which he has only done once before. I held him and told him what a good boy he was. I put an ice pack on his beagle back but it didn't seem to help. He came out of it about a half hour later. The actual seizure was much shorter but normally he will respond to food and water within a shorter amount of time. Not today. I placed water bowls all over the apartment to make sure he could get to at least one if he needed to rehydrate. He had drooled at least a cup of saliva onto my leg and the carpet after the seizure. I was afraid I'd have to get a saline drip into him. My poor boofer...
