Day 16, people – halfway home and still going strong!
Today was Heidi’s yearly visit at the vet, and Dr. Annie and I were talking about all of the dog trouble I’ve had over the past few years:
- Heidi’s food allergies
- Heidi’s ear infections
- Hank’s prostatitis
- Hank’s neutering surgery
- Hank’s heart valve problem
- Hank’s major spine surgery
We jokingly call them my $15,000 dogs, but they are worth it. My dogs are part of my family – I feel very strongly that if you accept responsibility for an animal, that’s it, you’re in it for life. Heidi was actually adopted from a shelter by my former roommates, who I discovered were thinking of returning her to the shelter when I bought my condo. I was horrified and immediately claimed her as my own.
When I look down, I’m filled with gratitude…
*Hank surveying his kingdom
And filled with joy…
*Heidi cannot be still to save her life…every pic is a blur!
When I look down, I also wonder why I have a fairy-angel outside my condo, lol.
Not sure what it means, but I’m taking it as a good sign. Happy Saturday everyone.
