|Then the car stopped and Daddy Don put us on this rolly thing with wheels (he called it a "dolly"). We liked rolling along behind him. That was fun.|
|A really nice girl human took each of us, one at a time, and put us on the shiny ledge. She said she was "weighing" us. Momma Joan never used anything like this to weigh us before!|
Note from Momma Joan: here are their weights, largest to smallest:
- Master Yellow: 15 pounds 4 ounces
- Master Red: 15 pounds 1 ounce
- Master Green: 14 pounds 2 ounces
- Miss Lime: 14 pounds 1 ounce
- Master Blue: 13 pounds 4 ounces
- Miss Pink: 12 pounds 3 ounces
|And we let everyone know we were hot. Our voices really echoed in that tiny room. It hurt Momma Joan's ears. Then it was time for our exams.|
|Dr. Wagner looked at our teeth, our jaw alignment, the roofs of our mouths, our eyes, our noses and our ears. He listened to our hearts and our breathing. We looked and sounded fine.|
|Then Dr. Wagner moved our legs in all kinds of directions (somebody said something about checking our joints and our "range of motion" -- whatever that is). Everybody did just fine!|
|Some of us were a little nervous.|
|Miss Lime shook all over. She was scared.|
|But we all eventually settled down.|
|Master Red was the last to get his exam, and by then he was kinda sleepy. He didn't mind any of it. Even the big scary microchip needle part. He just took that in stride.|
|And then Master Red just wanted to nap.|
|Oh boy, and then we got to go for a rolly ride again. That was fun. :)|
|Then we got to ride in the car again. Daddy Don drove and Momma Joan sat next to us again. We were much quieter on the trip home. We were tired.|
|And then we were home! Oh boy! Bounding and romping and wrassling and wiggling and waggling and exploring like we never left! We've even decided we like those crate things. They feel like cozy little dens. See! We survived! =o )|
Note from Momma Joan: All the pups did fabulously, and all "passed" their vet checks with flying colors. In addition to their exams, they received their six-week-old vaccines (DHPP); they were dewormed (just routine), and they received their microchips (permanent ID markers). They're all cleared for placement in their forever homes.
Speaking of forever homes, we're delighted that Miss Lime, Miss Pink, and Master Red have fabulous families and living situations awaiting them when they're ready to leave us in two weeks. We're still watching Master Green (he seemed to lag behind the others in coordination there for a little while, but seems to be catching up well now, and Dr. Wagner has no concerns about him, but we want to be sure first). Master Blue and Master Yellow are still awaiting their forever homes, but we're certain the right humans are out there somewhere.
So that's the latest from the gang! Stay tuned for some fun pictures from this week's other adventures.
