Qannik and Landon went to the vet together Monday afternoon for a squealing good time. Let’s just say everyone knew we had arrived.
Qannik was in for a follow-up visit for his digestive issues. He has improved dramatically, though we decided to extend treatments for another week and he continues to heal (treating the cecum – the connection between the small and large intestine).
Landon had his full physical and blood drawn for complete labs. We like to have an extensive labwork so we have a baseline for comparison in the future. He appears totally healthy.
Boom-Boom (that would be Landon’s nickname) is continuing to work on his “public” behavior. When he gets really excited, sees other dogs, knows we are going on a walk, thinks he is being left out of something or wants to do something, he expresses himself by squealing. Really, really, really loudly. He is working very hard on a better approach, but sometimes things just get so overwhelming, he reverts to full-on squealing mode. Like, say, in the middle of a vet’s waiting room with other dogs.
On the bright side, everyone at our vet’s office now knows who Landon is.
Wow. This is our 3000th post.
Our thoughts are with those on the other side of the “park” in Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. Best thoughts for the firefighters and residents. (Great Smoky Mountains National Park – We live in sight of the eastern border and Gatlingburg is on the western border).
