Yesterday Was A Key Anniversary

Yes, we know we are a day late. Hu-Dad is terrible about remembering the exact date of any key anniversary – canine or human.

What could it be?

What could it be?

A year ago yesterday, five of us rode in the Jeep on a day long excursion east of Raleigh and picked up the one and only Landon to come back home. Yes, yesterday was Landon’s First Gotchaversary. And he celebrated it in the most canine way possible.

The vet? Really, Hu-Dad?

The vet? Really, Hu-Dad?

When Hu-Dad received the reminder for Landon’s annual vet appointment, his first reaction was that the date was wrong. But, after checking the calendar, he just realized how fast the year has flown. So celebrate, Boom Boom!

Enough celebrating. Can we go home now?

Enough celebrating. Can we go home now?

P.S. – All vet checks looked good yesterday. We will get lab results back on his blood soon, but don’t expect any issues.
