Amidst all the quiet commotion around here, Emma has turned twelve today!
Her birthday present thus far has been a trip into town to visit Dr.Tracy (her favorite veterinarian) and got another blood panel test, which I’m sure will be as blue-ribbon results as a year ago. Tip top shape for a ‘tween’ German Shepherd with grey whiskers and a little arthritis, a good regimen of a lot of walks and naps!
The three of them seem to be having some kind of discussion, which I fear to disturb for they seem to be reaching some kind of consensus.
Meeting appears to be adjourned….
regardless of the uncertainties…
… its a go… they got it worked out, and now on to other things!
Um, like more napping.
Because Emma’s trip into town was an event to take in, and it being her twelfth birthday I let her ride up the mountain with all windows down! Oh the smells, pure heaven! I think she’s going to be fine for another birthday check-up next year. When Jeff returns from Peru (more on that later) we will have the celebratory ‘burger with hotdog candles cake’ with perhaps even another toy!
Edit in 5pm closing time : Vet called to tell me that Emma’s bloodwork came back blue-ribbon beautiful again! We’re just so happy here, for our healthy t’ween-aged Emma.
