She's Definitely Gotten Bigger

Today has found us going to the dentist (both of us) and taking our youngest pup to the vet for shots.

So lets see stat wise... for the two adults - for me root canal retreatment given a permanent filling... for D - nothing done - watch and wait.

For the little girl of the group - Lola weighed in at an impressive 8.2 lbs. Yes. 8.2 lbs. This is 4 times the weight that she was when we first got her. She was 2.3 lbs when we first got her at 6 weeks of age. So she may be under 10 lbs, but she certainly packs a wallop when she jumps. She's our flying squirrel.

Well the little flying squirrel had to get 3 shots. She of course was a bit of a drama queen about the whole thing. We decided to hold off on microchipping her at this time since we have decided to vaccinate both her and Ernie will be vaccinated against Lyme disease. With the amount of ticks we've been dealing with - our vet thinks this is a good idea. I tend to agree. Chance will not be vaccinated as he has had some nasty allergic reactions to two vaccines. Since he's the one that spends the least amount of time outside or even playing outdoors and combined with his age it makes sense to not vaccinate him at this time.

So... we'll be going back to the vet in a few weeks to get the two younger ones started on the lyme disease vaccines... Lola I'm sure will be thrilled. Ernie - of course will be delighted as he has a crush on the vet. She calls him a big beautiful boy and he turns into a lush and just stares at her...

So tomorrow finds me working days... D is driving 3 hours to spend 30 minutes at court then driving 3 hours back to go to work tomorrow night. Yes - 6 hours driving for 30 minutes of work for a civil case. Can we all say - this is bunk. What a joke.

Trips to the dentist and the vet aren't much fun. I hope that you all can get a break from poking and prodding in the near future.
