Friday's Vet appointment went very well. Last time Happy had to go, he went with my son, and he put up a fuss, but this time, both he and Denny behaved very well, and I was proud of them.
Happy was done first, and got to go and wait in the car (with my son, and the A/C on full blast). It was so hot in the Vet's offices, it was very uncomfortable. Denny panted like a train, not just from excitement. We had to wait a little, before it was his turn, and he was so excited to meet and greet everybody who came in.
When it was his turn, he wagged his tail, and let himself be examined from head to toes. The Vet was astonished, that he melted like ice cream, and lay on his back, exposing his belly for a nice rub. I was just glad he was not grumpy that day, or maybe he's just grumpy with us. After he was done, we realized that Happy was due a shot as well, so I exchanged the two.
He was just his lovely self, no problems at all. He was just a little spooked, when a little, old Pug sniffed his legs. Why is it that our dogs act like elephants, and mice, when they see smaller animals?
By the way, Maggie weighs 25kg right now, and Denny weighs 27kg, Happy weighs 35kg. She is slightly taller than Denny, and still growing. The Vet said, Denny should loose a little weight, he is on the chunky side. Maybe now, with the option to cool off, he will like to run a little more.
After we got home, they ran into the pool to cool off. Well deserved relaxation. Maggie was happy to see us as well, and they played until everybody was too tired.
Back in April I have knit these fingerless mittens. They are called Vagabond fingerless mitts by Misa Erder.
I used some left over Wandering Cat Yarns from three different shawls.
I really like this pattern, and want to knit more of them. Best of all, they fit my hands very well, without having to make modifications.
It's Victoria Day today, so the weekend is not over yet. Saturday was a hot day, and we discovered that our A/C is not working. I don't know how anybody can get through the summer without one. Service guy was called and an appointment booked asap. Summer is not my favorite time of year.
This weekend was also one for fireworks, but all our pups took it lightly. It was always hard to watch how Sam was afraid of all that noise, and there was nothing I could do about it.
