World Sleep Day!

Hey Everyone! Apologies again, we have been missing in action…again…I have been dealing with some issues with my leg and we had to go back to the vet.

We got some x-rays done and my humom will be getting a call from the vet today or tomorrow. I guess for the next couple of weeks we will be laying low. I won’t be able to do the things I love for a while…like running on the beach, exploring the forest or my favorite: playing fetch!

I guess it’s fitting that today is World Sleep Day! It’s time to sleep and recover! Happy sleeping everyone!

Pee S. Thank you everyone for the well wishes from my last post. I was really sick and it definitely sped up my recovery!

My first trip to the Vet!

Hi Guys! Nymeria here. The other day my humom took me to this really scary place called the vet! Mia said she’d come with me for moral support but really I think she just wanted to come to show off! Yeah…that’s right…show off. She LOVES going to the vet. She thinks it’s some kind of social event where she can say hi to everyone and get treats.

She kept running around and jumping up and down off the bench.

I, on the other hand, was looking for the nearest exit!

Nymeria: Is this how I escape? Mia, help me get out of here!

Mia: Oh relax you big baby. The vet office is fun!!! Let’s get this party started! Where are the treats!

Mia: Mom, why is Nymeria so scared? Doesn’t she see how fun the vet is? Everyone is so nice and gives us yummy things to eat!

Nymeria: Is this what you call fun?? What is she doing to my ear??

Mia: Relax…Dr. Ong is just making sure your ears are clean and there are no infections. I love Dr. Ong! She’s the best! She’s so nice and caring and gentle. We’re super lucky to have her as our dog doctor!

Nymeria: Now what is she about to do????

Mia: Just chill man! She’s about to check your teeth and gums!

 

Nymeria: OMD! Now what is she doing?? Mom I’m scared!

Mia: Calm down…She is just checking all your muscles, joints and bones.

Mia: See? It’s all over now! That wasn’t so bad was it??

Nymeria: I don’t know about you but I’m exhausted from all that! GOOD NIGHT!

 

Overall, the vet visit went pretty well. My humom said I was very brave and by the end of the visit I was comfortable enough to take treats from everyone. There was even a vet tech in the backroom that wanted to come in and meet me. I guess Mia and Keiko are pretty famous at this place. When they heard of a new addition to the family they all wanted to meet me.

Mia said she was proud of me too and shared the bed with me a little bit the next day.

What do you think of the vet? Are you more cautious like me? or a social butterfly like my fursiblings Mia and Keiko?

Have a great weekend furiends!

Sunday (Not so) Funday

Hello friends…*sad face*…I am having a not so fun weekend…during one of our trail runs I somehow managed to chip part of my toe nail!

How did it happen? Well, I like to play a game with my humom called “Find the Stump” where I will look for a stump, jump on top of it and I get a treat! I play this game with Wilhelmina too, it’s her humom that told us about this game!

Mia: Where’s my treat?!?!

Well, if you ever meet me, you will see that I love food, and I will do almost anything for food! There was this really tall stump that I usually have NO PROBLEMS climbing but this one time for some reason I got stuck half way. I tried my HARDEST TO HOLD ON (because I really wanted the treat) but alas…I couldn’t pull myself up to the top and I fell awkwardly. My toe nail must have somehow caught onto the wood and it ripped a little.

I didn’t show any signs of pain or discomfort until that night when I was on the bed ready for sleepytime. At first my humom thought I pulled a muscle (again). *side note: I pulled a leg muscle a couple of weeks ago from running too hard on the beach with Auntie*

I was being very needy and asking for lots of attention all afternoon and night.

Mia: Mom, stop playing on your iPad and cuddle with me

When my humom looked closer, it was indeed my nail that was damaged.

We went to see the vet right away. My humom was expecting the worse but fortunately the vet said the damage wasn’t too bad! She just clipped the hanging nail part off and then cleaned my foot.

Hooray! No sedation! My humom has to soak my foot in a pink solution 2-3 times a day for 5-10 minutes for the next few days.  My humom is not looking forward to it because she knows I won’t make it easy for her. Boy does she know me well! BOL!

Lucky for her I love my food and I can be easily bribed.

My humom was hoping she could clean it for longer than 5 mins but hello???? Does she not realize that 5 mins really feels like 5 YEARS in dog life????

 

The vet also said no beach or trails for 5 days!!! Is she crazy???

So now my humom has to get creative and find ways to keep me busy indoors. Good luck with that! BOL!

One of my favorite toys is my Kong Wobbler. But it doesn’t keep me occupied for very long because I can get those treats out pretty easily with my special whacking skills!

I recently got a new treat toy, I don’t know what it’s called but it’s pretty tricky! I think my humom got it on purpose because she thought it would be a hard challenge for me.

Mia: Um….excuse me, a little space here? I need to get this treat out!

But eventually I GOT IT!!!!!!! TAH DAH!!!!! My humom isn’t very impressed with this toy. She was told I would be occupied for HOURS! Well humans, you have underestimated me! BOL!

Mia: So…What’s next Mom??
