Our fellow blogger, Jules, who is also a good friend of mine, has a Wolfit (wolf-dog) named Tex. This is what has been going on:
(from her Facebook post) My beautiful Tex has been going through hell this Easter and ended up in hospital for a few days and I nearly lost him. He has today been diagnosed with Addison’s disease so I’d be happy to hear from anyone who has a pet living with that. He’s still very poorly as he’s had a nose bleed for 4 days which is another issue that may or may not be caused by his recent crisis. He’s not out of the woods yet by a long shot but hopefully, once they get Addison’s under control he can be treated for the nose bleed. I love him so very much and anyone with a pet will know what the family is going through with this.
Ukraine Naval News
There is a story being circulated wherein the Russian Navy seized a Ukraine Navy Stenka class patrol boat. Project 205P Stenka is a variant of the Project 205 Osa-class missile boat. The Stenka used the hull of the Osa class and had a slightly larger crew. This is a picture of the boat that they ‘seized’, severely damaged in the first days of the war. The Russians are stretching to find positive headlines.
Another National Park
Arizona’s next national park – the Chiricahua National Monument. I’m not anti-national parks, but I’d have preferred it if Arizona could have claimed it as a state park — but as with a lot of things in Arizona, it was sited on Federal land.
