My best bud

I drove WNM to the vet today for a teeth cleaning. Poor thing is so smart, we got out of the car and he — my otherwise curious and overly confident pooch — walked with shaky legs up to the front door, knowing precisely where we were and that he never leaves this office feeling anything less than poked and prodded.

And then I drove away in tears.

My best bud

Because, oh because, I have become a crazed dog owner who adores her pet. Yesterday I let him off leash to run in an area I most likely shouldn’t have. Yet watching him chase squirrels and geese, dart through sprinklers and run with his ears pinned back was both hilarious (he hops more than he runs) and sweet. Never mind we had to dart an angered groundskeeper.

Ever thankful this furry dude is in my life. Even more thankful as of this afternoon he won’t have stinky, rotten squirrel breath.

  1. So happy you have a doggie to love and spend time with. I love dogs! 🙂

  2. Can’t wait for the 1st person post from Nelson about his visit to the doggy dentist…

  3. I don’t know who gets more upset at the vet’s office, me or the cat. I always feel on the edge of tears there. I’m sure they think I’m loony-bin material. Hope Nelson is enjoying fresh breath.

  4. Yay! No more stinky-kisses! Heeee… Love that you guys are so happy, Kelli! Aren’t furkids GREAT?!

  5. He’s so much cuter than the wired haired fox terriers my grandma had 😉
