Delurking Week? My other home...

Did you know it was delurking week? I had forgotten I admit, however now I've come out of the woodwork to all the blogs I read - at least most of those...

So if you're reading this - please post a comment so I know you're out there!

As for my other home... it's the vet's. With the addition of the puppies into this household I've managed to spend a LOT of time at the vet's office. While I love my vet I would like to see her a bit less frequently. Monday found D taking Chance in for a check up of his wounds... of course he's been switched to yet another antibiotic. Thursday I'll probably take him back to the vet's for another check and we'll see how this goes. One part of his wound is just not healing quite right. Such a pain. I'm sure it is for him as well.

Tuesday found me coming home from a very long night at work and thinking hmmm Emmy just isn't acting quite right -she's way too cuddly. D convinced me to just check when I got up and we'd go from there. Of course I got up late and well Emmy still wasn't acting right so fortunately D could take her to the vet. When you take one puppy to the vet though you take ALL puppies to the vet. So D had 6 6 week old puppies in the car in a box and he was driving in snow. Emmy had to have some antibiotics, fluids, and well is now on the road to recovery from a bug. How she got a bug NO one knows, but she did.

Oh yes and Sunday I gave too much wormer to one of the pups so I had to call the vet and find out if it was dangerous... then induce vomiting. Fun times here I tell ya.

Add in ovulation and attempting to procreate and now the addition of antibiotics for 2 dogs, PIO for me and boy let me tell you it is fun times at our house.

We of course have to leave today (Thursday) to go to my mom's (the other side of the state 3 hour drive) with 10 dogs (yes all are going) and go to a memorial service for D's aunt. We must be nuts...

Nothing to report here on the reproductive front... too early to tell I think I'm like 3-4 dpo. Something like that... will of course keep you posted.

I read daily but do not comment very often.

I convinced all this puppy nurturing is preparing you all for something great!

DD said...

I'm not delurking, because I don't lurk, but I wanted to say you are absolutely NUTS for traveling with all those dogs, but I understand that you really had no choice.

Mandy said...

Faithful reader here as well, but definitely not a lurker. Just a creepy friend w/ who checks in on your site way too often. ;)

Hope that Chance and Emmy Lou are doing better. I still think you oughta talk to the vet about a frequent flier discount. Or at least get a free teeth cleaning or something. LOL

Careful on your drive today. I can only imagine how chaotic that carload is gonna be. You are my hero, my friend, no doubt about that.

Hi Sami
Sorry, I can't confess to lurking either. I have to admit, when I read that you are travelling with all 10 dogs I am not sure whether I am in awe or just plain worried. Please tell me that you have rented a cattle carrier or Winnebago for the trip.

just wanted to let you know I've been lurking here for a while now.

Good luck on both the dog and reproductive fronts!!

Susie said...

HI - I am also an avid reader. Never a dull day in your household!

Summer said...

I've been lurking for who knows how long! I think I may have commented once, maybe more, but I keep up with your posts daily.

Didn't want to seem like a lurker, so HI!!

Sarah Beth said...

I've been lurking since summer 06. Here I am. Good luck with procreation this cycle.

ugh - good luck on the drive. That's the difference between your side of the state and mine - we've forgotten what snow looks like over here it's been so long!

On the same tone as Mandy's note, have you guys ever looked into pet insurance? I don't know much about it, but had a friend whose employer offered it, something similar to health insurance but for pets... Just with 2 dogs it seems like we're always paying vet bills for something... I can't imagine what you're forking over! It's all worth it, though :)

No sure if I fall into lurking or not, but stopping by to say "Hi!"

And won't you have to rename your blog now? I count WAY more that 3 dogs! Those pups are SO cute!
