We started our weekend with a Thai dinner with friends; a first for our family. The hubby and I both ordered pretty conservatively so I don’t think we will be giving recommendations any time soon.
Saturday morning started bright and early with a 12 mile run with some friends. Running is so much better with friends. I much prefer it to running alone, which is weird since I used to be the exact opposite. The day was absolutely gorgeous, so instead of the [husband] proclaimed “lay in bed and do nothing” day, we headed to the reject dog park (empty baseball fields at the park) so the dogs could play. Boomer had so much more fun playing fetch with his daddy. Apparently he throws the tennis ball better than me or something like that. Little does he know, we now own a Chuck It so fetch is about to get even more intense.
Even Millie got in on the action.
Disclaimer: This video is horrible, but it serves as proof that Millie does actually exercise sometimes.
Saturday night, we went to see The Great Gatsby and it was AWESOME. Our favorite part was how they updated the music, but left everything else true to the time period.
Sunday morning we headed to the early church service because we needed to get into the city for an afternoon baseball game.My brother was actually in town for a summer class so we treated him to dinner and gave him a quick tour of Pike Place Market.
After taking Sunday off, I hit the gym for a good workout. I decided to treadmill run since the weather was going from raining to sunny every 5 minutes.
When I got home, I noticed Millie was limping. Luckily, the hubby got home right when I was on the phone with Banfield, so we rushed her to the vet. She was not very excited.
After messing with her paw, the vet decided they needed to put her under and remove the snagged dewclaw. If you remember correctly, she did the same thing in NY but the claw came all the way off. This time it was still hanging on which was actually worse than before. We left this sad little puppy behind so they could do the quick procedure.
We came back to the most pathetic puppy who refused to walk on her leg. (She still wont put her leg down which makes going to the potty very funny) The vet got a good laugh at her for “thinking her leg is broken”. Millie is doing much better today and is getting tons of loving and treats.
The hubby and I still need to decide if we are going to do surgery to permanently remove her dewclaws. Due to her age, the procedure will be more “intense” than when it is performed on puppies. It’s always something isn’t it?
