Yesterday it was well over fifty degrees and the snow around the snow stick began to melt some more. The snow was still there at 3PM when we got back from my appointment at the Vet.
This is me waiting patiently for my turn. At one point I was under this bench..a big fat chocolate lab was going to lick me to death. Then I came out and made friends with a boxer..he was very friendly, minus the licking. Finally Patty came out and said “It is your turn Chance, come on back.” I tried to hide behind Far Side..I headed for the door..the outside door. They made me go in.
The scale ..the dreaded scale..I know that I have been suckering an extra treat out of Far Guy every once in awhile. I weigh ten pounds more than I did last year at this time..I weigh 62 pounds. Someone said the F word.. FAT..but I think I am just pleasantly plump.
I got my shots, and I had my blood test. Far Side was fearing the worst..that I had one of those terrible tick borne diseases again this year. Last year in the spring I had Anaplasmosis..darn ticks and darn deer. I took my medicine and recovered completely. The Vet (Gretchen) said she was pleased..I am negative for all the tick diseases and for heart worms. It seems that every other dog that comes through her door has a positive test..so I was the every or the other..and am negative!!
After supper..Far Side cooked..sometimes when she cooks she says “Ooops ..dropped something on the floor.” I rush over and help her out..in this case it was some tasty roast pork..funny thing too..she dropped several pieces. Anyways..after supper we went to look at the snow stick.
Gone..the snow is all gone from the snow stick..and we have two winners. Connie Peterson and Liz in PA!! Connie, Far Side needs your address please email her. Liz we have your address! Thanks to everyone that entered..it was great fun, well not quite as much fun as playing ball..but still fun:)
