Today, the hubs and I did the most despicable of things. We took our dogs to the vet for their yearly checkup. Of course, that didn't sit well with either dog and I felt bad for them. I certainly don't like to be picked, prodded and drained.

Much to our surprise, Jax and Jewels, were perfectly well behaved while they were at the vet. They didn't snap at anyone, which they only usually do when a needle is involved. Plus, Jax is a total chick magnet and had all the ladies fawning over him. Don't worry, Jewels uses her petite frame to her advantage and gets lots of loving too.

Unfortunately, I am highly allergic to cats. I didn't bring any allergy medicine with me and by time I got home, my neck and the inside of my arms were covered in hives. My eyes were blurry and I had a terrible headache. I spent the rest of the day past out with the pups and we all recovered from our trip to the vet.

The hubs took this picture while Jax and I were asleep on the couch.

Then, I took another one of just Jax. Jewels is buried upstairs and she's one sleepy puppy that I don't dare disturb.


  1. Adorable pooches! I feel so bad taking our dog, Hiro, to the vet. I swear it temporarily violates his trust and he shoots me suspicious looks the rest of the day.

  2. I don't think I'll be able to take our dogs for a car ride for the next week. I'm afraid that if we go anywhere near the car the dogs will freak out and think they're going back to the vet.

    I hear you on the trust violation. Hopefully, we can buy our love back with lots and lots of treats.
