Don't Keep Me In Stitches

We hads a bizzy, bizzy day today!
I was off to the V-E-T to get my stitches OUT!  WOO HOO!  Sydney, she come along coz we both has appointments with the chiropractor after.
I used to do this in the old Mazda hikemobile but in the 1 1/2 years we has had my Zoobaru, I had nefur co-piloted like this but today I did and I whimpered fur mom to DRIVE FASTER.  I want these stitches OUT!
It also made mom happy I did this coz she sayed it be like old time but KNOCK OFF THE WHIMPERING.  Boo.
Common V-E-T.  Hurry!
More waiting ...
We hads an hour to kill afore our chiropractor appointments so went to this place.

Furst a drink of cool water mom bringed fur us.
See, in the olden days the peeps what lived here had collies and the collies, they is all buried here.  Lots and lots of collies  This be Lad's grave.
It do say LAD ~ THOROUGHBRED IN BODY AND SOUL ~ 1902 - 1918.  OMD, he be an old geezer!
That be the peeps and their collies ofur there in the olden days.
We gots to walk around the grounds.  They like dogs to come here to visit and it be a small place so that be good fur Sydney coz she cannot do walkies furry much now.
Here do be anudder grave.
Lots of graves!  All of those long rawks be markers fur collie graves.
See that frog statue?  That be fur a frog what lived in a pond here for 20 years!
Hey mom, so not funny!  Let us out of the kennel!
We went to the gazebo at the lake and had some more cool water.
Then we rested in the cool breezes.
I watched some cormorants ofur in the lake.
Look how close that bird got to me!  I is the bird whisperer, BOL.
Sydney hasing a good time.

  2. Oh, this is just such great news. I'm so glad you're doing so well. Plus, looks like you and Sydney had a really fun time at that park. They seem to really like animals with even having a statue of a 20-year-old frog. That is so cool.

  6. Looks like such a fun little day for you all. The vet is never too fun unless it is something like getting stitches OUT versus IN! Also, strolls are always the nicest.

  7. Oh, a Collie cemetery? Cool! We supposedly have some sort of Coon-dog cemetery down here in Alabama that's a big deal or something. Maybe I need to visit it!
