Week 5 Day 3 - Accountability and Vaccines

    We went for a walk this morning for about 25 minutes. It's been really hot and humid here so it was nice that it was a little cooler this morning and we could enjoy a short walk. I thad to be short though, we had to go to the doctor again.

     Last week we had those comprehensive exams and dental cleanings, remember? Well, me and Zoya were due for 4 vaccines each, and Atom was due for 3 so we had to go back for the 1-week follow-up appointment to make sure everything was still normal and the doctor gave us our vaccines today. We did really good! Not one yelp or cry :-)

    My doctor said she looked at my blog and that makes me happy! I want to know that what I'm doing, with my Mom and Dad's help, is okay and working. And it's nice to have them comment when I go in for appointments. The doctor said that weightloss for dogs is slow, though. Not as slow as cats, but realistically, it's not like you can go walk a cat. You can't even make them play or run around. If you try to coax a cat to play and they don't want to, they don't get excited and change their mind, they basically tell you "no" haha

    Anyway, Mom took some pictures at the vet today, and also during the walk so I have lots to share!

Walking with Zoya...

Mom took us in the reverse direction we normally go so I could feel like the short 25 minute walk was longer, she said.

Took a few minutes to pose for pictures, though!
With some nice flowers behind me :-)

Walking... nose to the ground - Beagle Style!

I started to get side-tracked when I picked up the scent of some other dogs...

Just me...

Awwww....

Getting tired... it was only 25 minutes but the humidity wears me out fast!

Walking with Zoya again...

And heading home... ready for a trip in the car!

At the Vet....
We could hear the other dogs making tons of noise in the back.


They came and took Zoya outside to see if she'd tinkle.
She didn't tinkle enough at our comprehensive exam so they couldn't do a urinalysis then.
Mom said that after they took Zoya, I waited and watched the door. When the other dogs in the back started making tons more noise, I pushed with my front paws and slid my Beagle-butt back next to my Mom!

Then it was Zoya's turn...

The vet tech and doctor helped Zoya have her vaccinaztions...

We each needed 4! 

My turn... :-(

Zoya checked on me... I was okay though.
The vet tech and doctor said that we were super good and normally dogs cry, yelp, or nip at them during vaccinations. But not us :-)

A compilation of the pictures... for "effect"...
Atom went last... he asked me to save his pictures for his blog though.
