Today was Oliver and Tucker’s annual visit to the vet…Doug had to work so it was Carlie and I who had the lovely task of taking the ‘fur boyz’ for their checkups!..
Tucker, of course is not a problem in the car…but Oliver on the other paw is a bit of an issue..once we stuffed him in his crate and took him down the to the car…meowing all the way..poor little boy!..this was going to be a noisy ride!!
We did come to the conclusion though, that two hairy animals in a black car with a black interior are not a good idea..and on top of that Carlie and I both wore black pants..so we were covered in ‘hair’ before we even arrived at the vet!..it was a flyin’..
“let me outta here?!!..I don’t want to go for a stinkin’ car ride!!!”
We arrived in time for our appointment at 10..but we had to wait..per usual..busy clinic..what more can I say..the parking lot was full so we knew we were going to have to sit for a while…
Tucker weighed in at 81.2 pounds…( all muscle..not an ounce of extra meat on that boy of ours)...and Oliver was 13.64 pounds..both were given clean bills of health… teeth were scraped…ears cleaned and shots and medications are all up to date for the year…I paid the bill..being very thankful that we get the ‘family rate’…an hour later we were headed towards home ..and our next stop of the day…the dentist for Carlie..but not before a quick stop to get a new battery for the laptop that Doug got for free from work…an older model 15 inch screen Dell/Lattitude….windows XP operating system..but it works well and did I mention it was free!
Dentist drop off for Carlie..teeth cleaning time for her..gotta shine up those pearly whites…
……took Tucker to daycare..he needs some time to play with his ‘friends’..
…and then drove home to release poor Oliver from the confines of his crate…there was more fur in the bottom of the crate than on him…I do believe he was a tad bit traumatized today!..poor little ‘gaffer’!!..with him safely inside the condo..being very vocal..meow meow MEOW!!!…I left and went back to pick Carlie up..
We had Subway for lunch and then she dropped me off at home..only 2:00..and I am ‘pooped out’…the ‘golden boy’ is at daycare…Oliver is being quiet finally…some peace and quiet for me..Doug is still at work…now what am I going to do???
some computer time…cross stitching to be done…isn’t it cute?..going to be a square in baby quilt for one of the girls at work..not quite done!!..soon…
Doug called..still at work..doesn’t know when he will be home?..Tucker is at daycare..they close at 6?..guess who is now having a ‘sleepover?’..that’s what happens when we are a ‘one car family’..oh well..he is in good hands…see you in tomorrow Tucker…
I walked to the grocery store this afternoon for some items for dinner…thinking that would be the right thing to do…since Doug has been working all day..making the ‘big bucks’..
our dinner..barbequed teriyaki steak, mushrooms, salad with thai shrimp and strawberries with whip cream for dessert…
Doug likes his salad in a bowl..I like mine on the plate with my ‘meat’ so at least it looks like my plate is full..mind over matter, I guess…I don’t care if my salad ‘touches the rest of my food’
and so ends our ‘fur flyin’ Saturday…on a little side note..just want to say congrats to Al from Bayfield Bunch..for being the 2oooth commenter..the box is prepped and ready to go to the post office tomorrow..the red mittens should be at your house by next week??..the little brown box has to travel only 2603 miles!..
