Congrats Winston, she is adorable .

I have also seen a different version of the "last will and testament" and love it.

One last request I earnestly make. I have heard my Mistress say, "When Blemie dies we must never have another dog. I love him so much I could never love another one." Now I would ask her, for love of me, to have another. It would be a poor tribute to my memory never to have a dog again. What I would like to feel is that, having once had me in the family, now she cannot live without a dog!

Winston, it was nice talking to you on the weekend. So glad the transport worked out well, bless the vet tech for bringing her so far in such awful conditions! Sophie is gorgeous. She probably loves that the bed smells of Winston, it's probably comforting to her. Love love love the LW&T from the doggies. Perfect really. Hope your knee is healing up well. Hugs to you all on your new journey together. Does Sophie still have puppy breath?? Maybe just a bit...

She sure looks happy and beautiful! Hope the ear turns out to be nothing serious. I love your kennel out back there. I wish I had one. Who won the battle Sophie or the tree?? Does she have a "forever" home tag yet??

If you try to take a nap, will she come and snuggle, or does she jump on you and want to play?

Hi guys! Sorry for the lack of updates!

Just got back from Sophie's first visit with our vet and she is absolutely perfect! they removed her spay stitches and they have healed nicely. She received her last booster shot and they checked her ear. She still has some gunk in the ear but they checked for mites etc and all is good! She is now 28lbs and they indicated she will be a small lab for sure possibly no more than 50lbs or so! She is loosing her teeth too! The vet said her molars are just coming in and all of her adult teeth are in at the front the rest are still puppy teefies! She was a raving lunatic (sorry sp?) at the vets!

I also had some follow ups with the surgeon yesterday to find out what exactly was done last week. he said for my age my knee is in pretty rough shape. I had a complete tear of the meniscus and arthoscopy along with something else to take pressure off the knee. I have quite a bit of arthritis in 3 different spots in the knee. He said its healing nicely so I can see him again in 3 weeks!

Oh and heck is it ever itchy! he said its normal cause its healing!

Thats my update for today!

Glad to hear the Lunatic had a good vet checkup. I had to laugh at that. Sorry. Lunatic in a good way I assume!

Sorry to hear you're having such a hard time with your knee though, the itching must be a drag. Sophie could maybe lend you a cone if it's a problem . I guess it sounds like you're just always going to have a problem knee doesn't it. That sucks. My sister has always had knee issues too. Puppy kisses have to make the healing better though.

Argh!!! I hate unscratchable itchies!!!! Good thing you have Sophie there to keep your mind off it! Is she pretty active at home or is she settling in pretty good?

yes she loved it before coming here. it was one of the things i was so happy about. the one thing i am not used to is the foster mom covers the crate so that is
what i do, she never makes a peep.

LOL. That is exactly how Jarrah sleeps in this hot weather, Winston, cooling her belly. Usually her forehead is flat against her water bowl, cooling her head at the same time.
