Winter stuff

We had a few days of extra warm weather between the monotony of a SW MO winter. Which is mostly cloudy, cold and wet. Not really cold enough to freeze the mud but not warm or sunny enough to be pleasant. We were supposed to have ice this week but luckily it all stayed just far enough north for Jerry to keep his appointment to her his hernia fixed on Friday. 
Since then we have been hanging out at home while he recovers and planning vacations somewhere warmer and sunnier. 

I've also been playing with photo apps on my phone.

A living legend

It's not as if she needed any more fame, but Legend is now on an Easter card! A few years back she did a super cute spring/Easter photo shoot for a local photographer and some of the photos got picked up for a pack of Easter cards!

And if you don't want to go to the link here is a photo. I'll post more photos when I get my samples of course!

Jekyll Island 2016

After a lovely chistmas at our house with family, we loaded up the car and the dogs and headed to the beach.  We chose Jekyll island, Georgia but it's only a little over  a days drive, very dog friendly, and not overly crowded.  We really enjoyed our stay.  Our hotel was right on the beach with an ocean view and we had decent weather most of the time.  The island has lots of paved walking and biking trails, cute historic areas, and plenty of dog friendly beaches.  The beaches were huge and uncrowded so Legend was ecstatic about all the off leash running and playing.

 Lyric did not have as much fun as Legend did, but she sure looked cute.

Running numbers

Finally.  At last.  It took me several attempts but I did actually run 1000 miles in a year.  This was admittedly harder than I expected.  It doesn't sound so bad when you do the math but having a job, traveling, and having additional hobbies made this a constant battle to keep up.  But, I did get to do my last two runs on the beach, with Jerry and Legend joining me for the last day.  Can't beat that!

I'm not done running yet this year, so I don't have that stat.  But I am done working.

I did 3,662 surgeries this year.  That's 1,873 spays, 1,703 neuters and 86 other surgeries.  Not bad!

Merry Christmas Grandma

My grandma went to Heaven this fall.  But I thought making this post seemed like the right thing to do.  I may still print a book too, to keep the collection going. Love you Grandma.

Just some cool vet stuff.

These are some pretty good sized bladder stones from a labrador.

This a yorkie whose eyeball was popped out.  I was able to get it back in and closed the lids for support.  Waiting on follow up to know if it worked.
