The green green grass of home?

September 13-15 2015

Time to head towards ‘home’..

We were packed up and hooked up before 8am..

The only ones out on the road were the ‘cows’..

..within about a half hour we were at the sani-dump in Logan Lake…no one here but us..IMG_0706

..with a quick dump and a donation to the city of Logan Lake , we were on our way..

..beginning to look a lot like Fall..our favourite time of year..

..we were in Princeton just after 1030..time for quick bite to eat..and then it was the last leg of our journey towards Keremeos..

..backed into our newly ‘gravelled spot’..sure will be nice not to be parked in a ‘mud pit’ when the rain comes!IMG_0712

..the green green grass of ‘home’..

..being parked on the ‘farm’ of Ron and Karen..there are always chores to do..be it ‘horse poop’ to pick up or ‘rotten pears’…

..we are always ‘game to earn our keep’..there are many jobs to be done…’pink or blue’..it doesn’t really matter..we just help out!

….we are allowed to leave the ‘confines of the farm’..once in a while..

Today the ‘boys’ had an appointment at the vet in Penticton..IMG_0727

..’Po’ went first..weight 13 pounds, temperature..rabies shot..and the other annual shots..and one heartworm pill..and he was done..

..and then it was the ‘big boy’s turn’…he weighed in at 84 pounds, three pounds less than two years ago..but the vet said he should lose a few pounds, since he is a ‘senior’ now..

Poor Tucker..good thing ‘Auntie Dianne’ is gone for a few months..a ‘lack of cookie diet’ is in his future..

IMG_0726

He got his temperature taken too, his annual distemper/parvo shots..no rabies..not due till next year and he also received his bordotella (kennel cough)..The vet tried the syringe in the mouth first but he wanted no part of that..so he got the injection instead..

..one quick nail trim and we were done..

our bank account is  down  a couple $100 but worth it knowing that our boys are healthy and looked after..

…now that my blog is caught up we can sit back and relax for a few days once the chores are done..

stay tuned for more…

  2. It's just as important that humans and animals get checkups. It's a good feeling when you get a good report.

  6. Tucker looks like he is loving his new to him home, even if it is just for a short while. It's always nice to know that they are good and healthy.
