Well friends, it happened… I had no idea it was coming. We got up like any other Saturday morning, went on a walk, had breakfast… How was I to suspect that when Mom said I was going for a car ride that it was going to end at….

 

Yes, it’s true. I had to have my yearly check up.  After being greating by the overwhelming warnings of boarding dog baying and barking constantly I was more then reluctant to go prancing in to those people in coats who like to poke and prode me. Not only did I try to make a narrow escape a couple times while in the waiting area as other dogs were coming and going, a very large dog that mom called a great dane came in to get weighed while I was waiting. Now, on any other day, under any other circumstances I am very sure her and I would have gotten along great. But at this moment, awaiting the evil fate that goes on when they bring me in that little room, her 148 lbs just didn’t seem all that fun, AND SHE WAS YOUNGER THEN ME! 

Eventually, after seemed like forever, I would have to say at least 30 dog minutes (aka: 5 mintues to my human readers) they called my name and mom walked me into that little room. As all of you know, I don’t really like new people and it takes me a long time to warm up to them. Well, this lady didn’t believe in warming up! A quick pet on the head, and a thermometer up the you-know-where! Talk about abrupt! Mom held my head and kept telling me I was being a good girl, but I had already desided that I would just stand as still as a statue until this whole ordeal was over. Maybe it would make it go faster, or maybe they would forget I was in the room. They took blood and told mom I was heartworm and lime negative, so I guess all those yummy once a month treats are working. Keep em coming!

Then the Vet came in… I know! I hadn’t even starting the real apointment! Every time I have gone to the vet I see a nice lady named Dr. Moynihan.


(that’s her and her dog Bridget, I never met Bridget, but she looks like a nice girl)

I had to get 3 shots and a thing up the nose! Ahhh- chooo! yea, I sneezed all over my nice vet.  After that, she told mom that I was FAT!! Well, I guess she just said I could loose a few pounds, but what girl wants to hear that!?  Mom fessed up that it was her fault that we hadn’t been exercising enough and that Mom could probably loose a few pounds too! And for Dad to lay off all the extra yummy special treats…

Ahh well, after that, I was done! I couldn’t get out of there fast enough! Mom, hurry up and start that car!
She made up for it though, later last night I got to go to SUNNY’s House! (See HERE to learn about me and Sunny) We got to play from 5:30-12!  Boy was I sleepy today!

Well, That about does it for this post… Until next time, keep your ears open for the word Vet, and run and hide when you hear it, I know I will next year!

Hey Everyone!
I just found out that we are going on a Road Trip to NH to visit my Nana & Papa!!! We will be leaving on Sunday morning because Mom already committed to babysitting Saturday night.
I don’t know how many of my readers are from MA, but we have a race called the BOSTON MARATHON that run’s RIGHT THROUGH MY TOWN! They even run right down the street that we usually walk. You can learn more about the Marathon here. The race starts where Dad’s parents live in Hopkinton and goes through Mom’s home town, Natick, and ends up in Boston! I like to run but that is a REALLY LONG WAY! I don’t think I could keep up.

Because Mom and Dad grew up with the Marathon they don’t seem all that excited about it, and since lots of people and little kids scare me, they said I wouldn’t want to walk down to see it. That’s why we are going to NH to the Lake House!

I will be sure to take lots of picture up there, Mom even lets me off leash some since they live in the woods on a lake, there isn’t many places I can run off too. Thank goodness the water is too cold still or else I think Mom would be throwing me in! She is determined to bring out the water dog in my flat coat retriever side. YA RIGHT!

Mom found a really funny video of me and Dad on her computer and I begged her to put it on here so hopefully it will be up soon!

Well, that is the update for now, stay tuned for more to come!

Lunch Time Today!

Today was another really nice day, in the 70’s and just wonderful. Bone’s and Fluffy had their Dad home today with them so I got Mom all to my self on our lunch time walk! We went up to the park and Mom brought her camera and tried the video function. It’s not the best quality, I will have to make her break out the REAL camera!

In this video, mom told me to go “hup” which means go to the object she pointed to and stand on it. The key is that I have to stay there until told. You’ll hear her make sounds to try to trick me, then you hear “come!”  and I came RUNNING!

Enjoy!

Mom is going to post more as the day goes on, but guess waht I got to do!? Today was in the 70’s and when Mom and Dad got home from work they wanted to take me out to enjoy the weather since I was cooped up all day.

 

WE WENT TO THE BEACH!

We only live a few minutes drive from the Cochituate (CA-chit-chu-it) State Park which has big open fields, wooded trails, a boat launch and A BEACH! I have never really seen sand and it’s pretty crunchy if you try to eat it, and it holds LOTS of new smells. Here is a picture to get you started, Mom will write more about my adventure when she has another spare moment!

Human Vet

My mom has been sick for a while now so she finally went back to the Human Vet for a 3rd time to find out she has a pretty bad sinus infection…. I have no idea what that is exactly but she sound really funny and she coughs and sneezes a lot which makes me run around and get really nervous cause I don’t know what is wrong with her.  Now they gave her some medicine and she is feeling much better. YAY, maybe now we will be going on more walks!

Yesterday it made it to 70 Degree’s in my little town. It’s been a long time since it’s been that nice.

To get to MY HOUSE!

Mom and I were out for a walk yesterday when she came home from work and you wouldn’t believe what I found!!!

A REAL LIVE CHICKEN! (Two!)

I had no idea what they were. One was brown and the other bigger one was white. They were taller then me! Mom let me stalk them for a little while, they were on seperate sides of our neighbors yard. But then I realised, I wasn’t the only preditor… there were cats watching each of them too!

Since we were out on a walk Mom didn’t have her camera, but I was searching the internet and this looks JUST like the brown one…
