Yesterday the humans had an appointment to take me into Gallup to see the nice Veterinary doctor as I needed my thyroid level re-checked to make sure I was getting the correct dosage. We had to be in Veterinary office at 8:45AM so that meant the humans had to get up early as the drive into town was approximately one hour from our home. Daddy woke momma up at 6:30AM because she usually has a hard time getting up “with the birds” as she put it but also because overnight a snow storm hit. Yup, after having really nice weather and getting all the snow melted and the mud dried out ole Mother Nature decided she wasn’t finished with us yet. We had high winds, hail and lots of fresh snow. Daddy didn’t have the snow chains on the truck so the 8 plus mile drive on the dirt roads was NASTY. The truck kept on sliding all over the place but luckily we made it just fine.
When we got to the vet office I was handed to a technician who stole some blood from me and told momma that they would have the results of my test ready in about an hour. Since Coco had come on the trip with me and we were both sharing a large crate in the passenger area of daddy’s truck, the humans wanted to make the best of the trip and get some shopping done while waiting for my test results because I was almost out of thyroid medications so it was important that I get my medication refilled or adjusted before we headed back up to the mountain.
The humans went to a feed store that was down the street from the vet’s office and bought Arleenton another cage. The last one that momma bought for Arleenton, right before we moved, had a cheap plastic catch pan on the bottom that got warped during the move. It was so bad that momma tried to make a new catch pan but somehow or other Arleenton always managed to get urine on the floor and since she is going to be housed in the sewing room so that she has lots of company and is not isolated from us, it was important to find her a nice cage that would not permit urine to steep on the floors. Daddy picked out a really nice one that has a high molded plastic catch pan as the base of the cage so it should be impossible for any bunny waste to be outside the cage. Arleenton is now in her new cage in the sewing room so Coco and I had to run over to her and welcome her to her new home with a series of BARK, BARK, BARK’s – BOL. I’m hoping momma will let Arleenton out to play some bunny tag with later.
Anyhoodle, back to my thyroid test, the results indicated I am taking the correct dosage so my prescription was re-filled and we all went back to the mountain. It snowed the whole way home and now everything outside is once again covered with snow. Today the sky is once again dark and it appears we are going to have more snow falling soon. If any of you pups want to come over and play in the snow with me feel free, but I have to warn you that you when you come inside the house afterwards crazy momma will pick you up and haul you over to the laundry tub to wash the snow and mud off your feet.
We are getting more snow here too, Puff! I guess that is why it is called the Great White North up here. Glad that your bloodwork was fine and we hope you are doing well. I can only imagine the barking welcome that Arleenton got from you and Coco Rose!
OMD! More snow??!! Glad everything was OK with your Thyroid test. So happy you and yours made it home safely. I would just love to play in the snow. If your Mom is able to lift me up, that would be great!
Plus, if anyone is planning to go
play with Coco Rose & Puff, please
remember to put your snow chains
Hope you get to play some Bunny Tag!
And maybe I can come play and my momma can go Indian jewelry shopping in Gallup! BOL!
ugh, when is this crazy weather going to stop
Good that your medicine is right. Enjoy the snow!
All dat snow!! No thanks!! Maybe you could come here and enjoy the sunshine we had today!!
Although Momma would be up for the jewelry shopping in Gallup at Perry Null...
Coco was talking about all the foot washing an' stuff but she didn't mention the snow! We hardly ever gets snow here! And I love barking at it! But I'm fine here thanks, I gets enough foot washing and' stuff like that as it is! You and Coco should come here to Ireland and help me BARK AWAY all those kitty cats till the snow's gone!!!! Oh, glad your medication's working by the way! Mummy's still shoving pills down my neck 'cos I was all 'lergic to that diet food!
