Emma Update

So our little pup that we got back in August:











Is getting all grown up.


She’s now well over 60lbs, in only 3 1/2 months.   We recently had her spayed by Mike’s Mobile Vet.


Which I highly recommend.  Yeah he costs a little more, but it’s worth it.  You don’t have to drag your dog to the vet, or bring them home so it saves time.   I will warn you though that when you take your dog to the vet for surgery, they usually keep them for half a day or maybe overnight.  What you don’t get to see is them coming out of the anesthesia.  It’s not a pretty sight, but at least it happened at our house.   Even with that experience which was new to us, I’d still do it again.


OK, so Claudine has been Jonesing for another Golden Retriever since we had to put Comet down.  He was a great dog.

Then all I heard about was, never again, never will we get a dog that:

a) Sheds and clogs up the vacuum cleaner
b) Is big enough to clear the coffee table with one swift wag of the tail
c) Makes us buy food by the 50lb bag

But enough time has passed that she forgot all that stuff.

On our way home from my rained out NASCAR Experience, she happened to glance on craigslist and there she was.   11 week old female golden.

We picked her up that evening.   She’s HUGE, and she’s gonna be HUGE, Comet-like we hope.

We’ve had her a week now and for the most part she hasn’t eaten anything she’s not supposed to and the accidents have been minimal.

Meet, Emma:





She’s a doll.
