Yesterday we went to the Vet's for Happy's second vaccination, weighing and a general looksy.
Dr. Doug our regular Vet was not there, so we were supposed to get Dr. Jackie, who we don't know yet. Instead Dr. Nora saw us come in and snatched our appointment away from Dr. Jackie, just so she could have some time with Happy. She's heard of him, but not seen him. Well, he welcomed her, like an long lost old friend. I should start taking the camera to the Vet's too, but it's always really hectic there. First thing was standing on the scale, not really surprising he weighs a ton. Since I still have to carry him down the stairs, I can tell.
This little piggy is 11 weeks old today, and he weighs 19lbs (~ 8.7 kg). When we picked him up he was 6 1/2 weeks old and weighed 7.9lbs (~ 3.6 kg). Dr. Nora said he's on the tall and skinny side and we could feed him more. Everything else was fine, except he behaved like a maniac, no manners at all. He's the first dog who liked those healthy treats the Vet gives out, I'm afraid this one would eat anything. Biko and Sam always politely took the treats when offered, and spit them out descretely.
It's hard to play with a full belly like that!
Happy little Happy tail.
Biko wanted to play ball, but was not sure who would get it first.
Wild crazy eyes before he ran off in a puppy run.
I'm sure Biko was thinking ," What did I do to deserve this?"
Still not far enough?
Comming up next time are pictures of Happy and his new wading pool. It all started with digging in water bowls, flooding kitchen and hallway ...
Somehow I missed this picture yesterday and since he's growing fast, it should be in this post:
