Dentist, Vet and Fishing

Jackson had a dentist visit this morning for fillings under IV sedation. It went really well and the dentist even extracted a loose baby tooth while he was under so that was great. Who else doesn’t enjoy watching their children work on a loose tooth at home?

Tucker sat next to Jack and made sure he was okay on the ride home.

In other doctoring news, Waylon had a vet visit on Wednesday for shots and a checkup. I brought Tesla along as, the last time she was at the vet, she came back with a water hump and a painkiller shot.

She was not excited and tried to hide behind me or sit on my lap when anyone even looked at her.

Oh, and we went fishing a couple weekends ago so here’s some pictures of that. We left Coco at home and took Papa instead.

I’ve only been running once or twice a week but trying to make sure that I get a little strength work in every day. Sometimes it’s only a few squats in front of the stove while I’m cooking dinner or a quick break from my desk for some pushups but it always makes me feel better than if I had done nothing.

Tesla is almost a year so I’ve been taking her on runs with me and she loves it. The only problem (and the reason I haven’t been running) is that Coco and Waylon go nuts if they see us going out the door so I end up taking everyone for a walk instead. It doesn’t really get all of Tesla’s energy taken care of but it helps tire the other two out and they all have a good time.

Meet Our New Family Members

I have a couple new family members to introduce you to. Meet Tesla the German Shorthair Pointer

and Waylon, the Gordon Setter.

After everything that happened with Ruger, we waited to get another dog but finally felt we were ready last fall so, we contacted Ron, Ruger’s breeder in Iowa and arranged to get a puppy from a litter he was planning for the spring. We told the boys at Christmas and they were ecstatic. Jackson especially was happy to have a relative of Ruger’s.

Seth tried calling Ron in January to check and learned that he had passed away unexpectedly. I contacted the coroner asking to pass our condolences on to the family and we started searching for another dog.

We found six month old Tesla through a local breeder who had received her and her brother from a man who decided he didn’t have time for them.

At the end of March, Ron’s sister called me to ask if we were still interested in a puppy. She had all of Ron’s dogs and an accidental litter of eight. Of course we said yes so now we have three dogs. I think that means we’re dog people. Haha!
