Success! (And 2 FO's!)

We got a note from the vet telling us that Niki was due for his bordetella vaccine (for Kennel Cough), so Andrew and I strategized.

We decided, since the dogs love riding in the car now, we would do a "happy vet" visit, then take them straight to the dog park afterwards.

Yesterday, I met Andrew and the pupples at the vet and we had the GREATEST experience. It took a little bit of coaxing to get them into the back room, but
Andrew and I both left the room and panic did not ensue. We went straight to the dog park and all was well. We dropped the dogs off at home and went out for Ethiopian food (which was A-FREAKING-MAZING!) with the DMC crowd (formerly the Hopf crowd). Then back to the DMC for Dr. Who, which I promptly slept through.

This morning we had a 9AM appointment with our vet, whom we LOOOOVE. She's been our vet for a little over 6 years now, which really says something. Especially since we drive across town to see her. I digress.

We get there, and everything goes so amazingly smoothly that I can't believe what I'm seeing. I had to help keep Niki standing when he got his temperature checked (Niki was trying to sit for treats, our method of distracting him). Elphie was super good. They both got their Kennel Cough immunization, so we can take them to obedience classes now.

We take them to the dog park after, things go great. Such a good day. Today is knitting, and that should be good. Let's just say that the dogs are whipped puppies and are napping right now. :)


I made a hat to match the scarf that I finished, AND I started and finished the Confetti socks (Tess Yarns). Woo!
