So proud of Nelly !!

omg , I am so proud of her ! I took her to my vet to have her nails trimmed.

So I let Nelly and the vet techs in the room and go back to the waiting area. A couple walks in with a 12 weeks old chocolate lab :lovestruck: who already sits on command !! Real nice puppy. Then a lady comes out of another room with a 100 lbs Bernese and 2 very hyper little boys. So I'm thinking , will have to get Nelly far away from those boys , she doesn't like hyper little kids.

So the vet tech comes back with Nelly , tells me Nelly was a very good girl, scared , but very good. Now I'm trying to go through the bernese , lady and the screaming kids who are all in the way , the bernese gets right in Nelly's face , they smell each other , Nelly growls a bit so I take her away in a corner. Little boy come straight for us , "air punching" with his fists , very hyper , I explain to him that Nelly is very nervous and he needs to back off , and so he does. The kids are very hyper and still screaming , lady is paying her bill. Not only did Nelly sat for me , she laid down and waited patiently for our turn to pay. Even the vet tech told me she couldn't wait for the kids to leave , she was getting a headache. :D I couldn't believe how calm Nelly was ! :cloud9:

And , she now weights 99.6 lbs !!! Not an once of fat. So far from her 72 lbs when she got here. From this :

What a good girl Nelly!:thumbs up:dog: and good work on your part too Frenchy! I hate when people take their annoying little bratty kids to the vet, little kids arent his favourite thing. And my she certainly has come a long way. When i saw the top picture i saw her two hip bones sticking out and i was like wait a second, and then i read the caption..she is looking so good!:dog::cloud9:
