Well, I did it - I made it thru our joint vet appointment wif Juneau! It was such a long wait. They told mommy & daddy that Friday nights are the worst for wait time cuz that's when there seems to be a lot of emergencies. I talked & woo'd alot wif other doggies & their humans while Juneau took a nap. He was a very good puppy despite the long wait. It was my turn first. A nice tech lady came into our room to take blood from my paw. Oh woo, that needle was big & long! I tried to tell them that I was OK & they did not have to stick me to get a blood sample from my leg, but did they believe me - Nooooo! Yes, I was a little wussy! I must say, it was over before I knew what was going on. They wrapped my leg up wif tape afterwards as a bandaid. They said that it was my yearly heartworm test. I gained 2 pounds since April (in spite of being a rather picky Husky eater) & now I weigh 48 lbs. The vet said that I should weigh no more than 50 - 52, so I am doing good. I got my yearly combination shot, too. Then, it was Juneau's turn. He gained 3 pounds since his last visit 3 weeks ago. So now he weighs 18.sumthing. He got his next round of puppy shots & his rabies shot, too. Our vet said that we were both very healthy boys. She tried to give me some treats, but they were rather nasty wif no taste. That was OK cuz Juneau ate my share. He's a piggy. Juneau won't have to go back until he gets neutered sumtime around November. Daddy wants to know why they say they "fix" the dog - isn't it more like "broken," he-woo-woo?!?!
Mommy's passions are Siberian Huskies (& all breeds of dogs, too) & horsies. Daddy has helped mommy continue with her dream of riding & owning horsies by surprising her with Charlie Horse, a Rocky Mountain gaited horsie, in 2005 for her birthday present. Presently, our 4-legged clan consists of 2 Sibes (me, Cosmos), my Sibe bro, (the demon youngin, Juneau), & 2 horsies (Charlie Horse & his bro, Bud - Norris has been retired to Maryland in 8/07 & Cutter to his 1st family in 3/08). The 2-legged members are Daddy-Joel, Mommy-Marlene, Joshua, Erin & her hubby, Eric. We live in Pittsburgh, PA. Email us at email@example.com.
