Look Back and Look Forward

I haven't been great about blogging lately - things have been so busy!

So - we can start by looking back a February - it was a pretty good critter month.  Here is the score healthwise -

  • Healthy Critters with nothing to report = 12
  • Squinty Eye = 1 - Ollie had squinty eye for a day or two in February
  • Glucose Number outta whack = Violet - still working on finding the perfect dose for her meds. Good news is she is still asymptomatic
  • Allergy sufferers = 1 - Winston had a few bouts of runny eyes over the course of the month
All in all we are in pretty good shape.

Winston had a lovely Valenswine package this month.  Emma and the puppies got to visit with Quincy - my mom's dog.  We had crazy warm weather so the little critters got to be in the outside play space.

Looking ahead to March - it's going to be busy.  First on Monday, March 6th my newest babies go in for spays and neuter.  They will get dropped off early Monday morning and if all goes well they will come home later in the day on Monday.  I am already starting to get nervous.  Then the really tricky part will be keeping 3 five month old puppies quiet while they recover.  It should be an interesting week.  Additionally - on Thursday Miss Violet goes for a glucose check and the addition of a new medication should her numbers still be low.

I am looking into having a trainer for the puppies come to the house - getting them to do anything with all three of them together and only one of me is challenging.  Stay tuned....
