Giveaways, New Harnesses, Sun Lizards and a Trip to the Vet!

Its been another busy week! With only two more weeks left of school there are a lot of things to do! Thanks for the Birthday wishes for Jazz - she had a great day and the postponed car trip is set for tomorrow but may have to be to an indoor dog run as rain is forcast.
On Sunday in the park there was a dog event with trainers, a talk show, photographers, the Komazawa Dog Run Supporters Group and people giving away samples. We got a goody bag with treats and poop bags. We have never tried the Science Diet treats but Jazz and Dixie seemed to like them a lot.
I also bought Jazz and Dixie new harnesses this week as walking has become a little difficult lately with both of them pulling in different directions. With the new harnesses they are back to walking pretty much together and at a good pace. Jazz still lies down everytime we meet other doggies in the park.
Its really starting to heat up here. We got a taste of summer today with a 28.5 degree day today. Even so Jazz and Dixie still enjoy their mornings after walks lying in the sun.
Today I took the girls to the vet to get their heartworm tablets and their Frontline. I have been meaning to get Jazz and Dixie microchipped for a long time so today I thought was the day. I almost backed out though when I saw how thick the needle was! Poor sensitive Jazz really yelped and squirmed but Dixie just stood there and took it. Both girls got treats after that!!

I had all of our dogs chipped when they were altered so they never had to endure the needle. That thing really is huge! Poor girls. I'm sure the treats made it all worthwhile.

Oh wow! That needle! We had Diesel microchipped shortly after we adopted him and I was standing in the office when the vet did it. I'm glad I didn't look closely at the needle or I may have changed my mind like you almost did! Marvin came to us pre-chipped.

Cute harnesses!

That is a very big needle. Real scary. But you got some nice treats afterwards..

Luna also has chip, but here in Slovenia all dogs must be chipped, so Luna got it when she was only 3 months old.

Those Science diet Hills treats look nice - we don't have it here - only "main food" (I can't remeber english word) and cans.

And we also use Frontline for Luna- But we give pills for heartworms only when we go to the sea in Croatia, here we don't have dangereous mosqitos.

Wow, that really is a big needle... I'm glad you gals survived the day! I suppose the treats were worth getting chipped for...

Hello we would like to review your site for our friends. Your site is a great example of a superb dog blog!

Let us know thanks,

I'm glad I was too young to remember being micro-chipped. I hate needles and the vet is not on my fav outing list! My humans switched me to an annual heartworm injection instead of the monthly Heart Gard as they didn't want to take the risk of forgetting to feed me. I get my monthly Front Line treatment as I go into the trails a fair bit. I suppose the treats make up for the unpleasant vet visit.

Hello jazz.
It has become hot recently.
Though it is cool because of rain today.
I want to see the appearance of a new harness early.
A wonderful weekend. :)

CUTE new harnesses! I think I've had those Science Diet treats at our vets - they're mighty tasty!

Oh yes, Truman let out a big yelp when he got microchipped. He was pretty unhappy for maybe three seconds, but quickly got over it when he got a treat!
