The Tazmanian Devil aka Brig and Sweet baby Max

Yesterday was a rough day for Brigham. He is a sweet boy and a lot of fun, but he has reached a challenging and stubborn phase that is really difficult for me. So yesterday all within an hour Brig squeezed Dawn dish soap all over the carpet. My sweet Spencer was so nice to help me clean up the kitchen where soap had spilled. While I was shampooing the carpet he went into the storage room and knocked a jar of pickled beets off the storage room shelf. While I was carpet shampooing the pickled beets up he peed on the floor. Then he decided to help himself to the bottle of benadryl. Fortunately Spencer busted him and stopped him before he drank too much. I did have to call poison control though.

Spencer was in so much pain I put his socks and shoes on for him and Tyler carried him out to the car. They got to the ER a little after 5pm and they saw that it was appendicitis and had him back for surgery by 7:15. I know that the lord blessed me to know what was wrong with Spencer. I am so thankful that I told Tyler to take him in. His appendix was close to rupturing and he had fluid in his pe…
