Me and My Hips!

I went to the vet today for a preassessment appointment. They had to make sure I was ok to be put under anaesthetic to have my hips xrayed again. I had them xrayed back in April 2009 when I was only 10 months old and they didn't look so great :( There was even some mention of hip dysplasia. I don't like big words that sound scary! After the last xrays Mommy put me on Sasha's Blend and salmon oil, took me to the chiropractor on a regular basis and taught me how to swim.

We've been walking alot too, to keep me fit (and handsome :) Mommy wants to have my hips rechecked now that I'm all growed up so she knows if everything is working! All I know is I love going to the chiropractor and swimming and walking and the supplements just taste yummy!

We walked into the vets office and I was greeted by lots of nice ladies who were there just to pet me :) Then I got weighed, I was 88lbs! When we went into the office to visit the vet, she said I was a bit too round :( I need to loose a few pounds cause the extra weight isn't good for my joints. Oh, oh, that means less food and treats. Not good :(
She also said I have lots of muscle (Of course I do, I'm a big strong boy!) and good leg extension (what ever that means). Mommy was smiling alot, so that must be a good thing.
Everything looked good,so next wednesday I have to go in for my new xray. Cross your fingers for me!

Meanwhile, I won't be getting as much food as I deserve for supper today!

We went to the Beach!

Last sunday we found a nice quiet beach where I could fetch sticks and run around and play!
First we walked down this little path in a field until we got to a cliff. Wow! Nice view!

But there's water down there! I want to play in the water! Can we go down the cliff? come on, let's go!

Julie and Jewels showed Mommy and I the path down to the lake. Yeah! Mommy threw lots and lots of sticks and I fetched them all! There were so many to choose from, that I decided to bring I couldn't just bring one back.

Jewels climbed the hills and looked for bugs! She loves hunting bugs, not sure why, she never catches them!

The swans were coming to get me, so Mommy started throwing the sticks a different direction :) She was afraid they were stalking me. Silly Mommy, I'm not scared of a couple of birds!

We saw a toad, well at least Mommy did, I missed it, to busy looking for sticks.

Mommy says its time to go :( But I'm not ready! Throw another one please?!? Just one more, maybe two, no more then three, ok?

Boy, what a fun day Jewels and I had. I bet Jewels is dreaming about bugs.

I'm going to dream about fetching sticks and swimming :)
