My Little Lifesaver- and I don't mean the candy

This is "Lucky" a 7 week old mix breed puppy that was brought into our clinic, North Shelby County Animal Hospital, for a check up after being adopted from an unknown breeder. Upon our fecal exam, which we normally do with new puppies, we found an abundance of hookworms, roundworms, and coccidia. These are all intestinal parasites that puppies can pick up from their mother or outside. They are common to see on puppy fecal checks. The thing about Lucky is that he had more than the normal amount. These parasites were taking up most of his red blood cells, causing him to become anemic. Even his little nose, which should be pink with black spots, is actually a pale white with spots.
This is where my baby, Logan- a 4 year old lab mix, comes in. He donated blood to Lucky so that Lucky could grow up to be a healthy dog. He was perfect! He sat very still and didnt move a muscle while we used an 18ga needle to draw his blood. Im so proud of my little lifesaver. Of course he got extra treats and love. I Love my job!

Short & Sweet Beach Trip

This past weekend, we took a short little beach trip to Orange Beach. Kevin's parents have a house down there and so we went to spend the weekend. We were lucky enough to be able to take the boys (Logan and Wriggs) with us. Anywhere there is water and a toy to fetch, they're there! Besides going for fun and relaxation, we went so that Kevin could drive their new boat, "Special Kaye". My mom and I actually came up with that name and Tommy (my father-in-law) liked it so much that that became the boat's name. By the way, my mother in laws name is Kaye. =) Too cute right? I thought so. Also while we were there Kaye had gotten us tickets to go see Rascal Flatts and Darius Rutker. It was so much fun and a great concert!

Ok...So I'm New at this

Hello all! This is my first time blogging. I originally thought that I could never see myself being a "blogger". After following my friend's blogs and surfing around on the Internet, I'm getting more and more used to the idea. My girlfriends and I, because of our hectic schedules, don't get to see each other as much as we would like. So the idea was brought up to start blogging so that we could keep up with the fun, cute, and adorable things our kids, dogs, and husbands did! =). So I'm trying to figure out how everything works so that I can get into the world of blogging! I cant wait, it sounds like fun! Hope you all enjoy my blog and have a great day!
