  1. Dem Bones

    Yesterday it was Addie’s turn to visit Dr. Donny.  We did hips, elbows, and a patella check for OFA.  I think these are pretty nice hips:

    Donny took the time to explain to Debbie, Pam, and me what he was looking for and why he liked these hips.  I always appreciate his conversations.

    I am firmly convinced that OFA and the IRS are sister companies so I’ll just hold my breath until the results are in.  We submitted digitally so should have an answer in the next two to three weeks.


  2. An Unexpected Package

    When I went to my Post Office today, I had a pick-up notice in my box (actually two, but one was unimportant).  The other box was totally unexpected.  It was from my friend Margaret Williams.  Margaret lives in South Dakota and I know she is really jealous because we have had so much snow and rain while she enjoys unseasonal warmth.  The box contained real surprises.  One was the much-coveted Target Corgi ornament.  When the little guys hit the Target shelves, Corgi Nation gathered together and launched an unparalleled rescue operation.  That meant if you didn’t get a Target Corgi ornament in the first few days after they were stocked, you were not getting one.  We don’t have a Target in Los Lunas and I had not been in Albuquerque when I also had time to systematically hit the Targets to find one of the elusive ornaments.  I assumed I would have to do without, but then Margaret packaged up one of the little guys and sent it to me.  They are very cute!  Don’t you agree?

    Also in the surprise box was a lovely oval, beveled glass ornament with a photo on it of Chase herding sheep.  It is an early morning photo so includes many shades of blue.  It is so beautiful, so unexpected, and I am so grateful.  What a wonderful gift.  Hugs to Margaret.

  3. Allergies and Ultrasounds

    December 5, 2015 by myeye

    This morning we again ran an ultrasound over Copper’s tummy — just to be sure.  Unfortunately, she is still not pregnant.  I am so bummed!

    Tuli has been suffering with hotspots.  Last week, my vets took skin plugs and sent them off to Spectrum labs to see if our puppy has environmental allergies.  Indeed, Tuli does.  The results are below.  The answer is the compounding of oral drops that will be administered under her tongue for 3 to 5 months.  The Clinic will order the drops on Monday.  In the meantime, I will re-home Tuli’s pet cockroach.
