Happy Friday

It's Friday - woot - it was a long week for the humans and we look forward to some down time this weekend for sure!  The critters had a good week - nothing earth shattering to report and I like it that way.

The puppies spent lots of time outdoors this week.  They are still doing well with their crate training. They don't sleep in as late as I would like but they are getting better and better about ignoring when the humans get up for whatever reason while they are in their beds.  I would say in another month or so they will have the routine down pat.  Emma is doing very well - she seems quite happy and appears to be feeling great.

Winston is fantastic - active and happy to be outdoors for the bulk of the day.  His health seems fantastic and his attitude has been great the last few weeks as well.  He is the next one on the docket for vet visits - the vet will make his annual house call and perform all of his maintenance.  Winston will get a physical, vaccinations, tusk trim and if needed a hoof trim.  I guarantee I will be much more stressed out about the whole happening than he will.

The kitties are well - they are happy, lazy spoiled creatures....lol.  Everyone seems to be at a healthy weight - the girls are keeping off the pudge and Oliver is keeping his much needed weight on.

The ferrets are well too - Violet continues to thrive.  She will get her glucose test at the same time the vet is here for Winston's appointment.  Spring coat changes are pretty much done and I think the associated weight loss is done as well.  No one lost an alarming amount but you can definitely see a thinner version of Bash and Tabby in particular.  All in all they are a rambunctious bunch.....I so love those weasels.

Critter land is staying in relatively good shape - I vacuumed, dusted, mopped this morning.  I head down there many times a day in an effort to stay on top of cleaning up messes, toys and scoop boxes. It is a ton of work but so worth it.

So - there you have it - the latest and greatest from here.  Happy weekend!!!
