doggie kennel

h1 Tuesday, March 14th, 2006

well, we just picked up charlotte from the doggie kennel. she was there 5 full days while we were out of town and had her share of drama and stress. A very nice person from puppy class offered to take her on a walk one day while we were away. this was a fabulous offer because the kennel doesn’t take her on walks – they just do free play (and in my opinion not enough). Anyway… our friend called us while we were away to let us know that charlotte’s eyes were blood shot and VERY red. after much back and forth with the kennel, the friend, and the vet, charlotte went to see an emergency vet on sunday afternoon.

No ulcers were present, no oozing. the vet wasn’t sure but he thinks the red eyes were caused from her hitting her head. 8-( the official diagnosis is: “Subconjunctival Hemorrhage probably traumatic in origin.”

she is presently on the couch chewing on a dried beef tendon – yum! her eyes are still red, but we think its fading. her behavior is not entirely normal – she is a little timid with me and overly submissive to other dogs.

we just returned from puppy class where she was very well behaved. next week is puppy intermediate graduation!! yay! she has to perform a trick. we have yet to choose a trick.

Road Trip

h1 Monday, February 13th, 2006

Charlotte and I just returned home from our first road trip together. She was very well behaved in the car, and actually made the drive more enjoyable (I get really bored and antsy on long drives).

We attended Salt’s Bark-Mitzvah. Charlotte had a great time, even though none of the other dogs wanted to play as much as her. She even won a squeaky toy in a game of musical chairs! Go Charlotte!

Here is a picture of the Birthday Boy, Salt.

Then after that visit we went to see our friends on their vineyard. They have 6 dogs and lots of room for puppies to run!

Here she is – running!

We both had a fun time visiting our friends and their dogs. Thank you friends!

Now we are both at home and getting back into our routine.
