Today is not unlike any other working Tuesday. Not much going on at work today, I had to try and keep myself busy. I am teaching one of the guys how to do the day to day stuff on the computer, as they are not replacing me at the present time. Business is slow, so they think they will be able to keep up while I am gone, after all they can call me if they run into a problem or have questions.
Jesse got off at 12:30 and had no particular agenda today. I had partially baked a turkey breast last night to have for dinner tonight and he was to put back in the oven to complete baking.
We had an appointment for the boys to have a microchip implanted. The size of the HomeAgain microchip is about the size of a grain of rice (approximately 12mm). Because it is so small, the actual implantation of the microchip is quite easy. The veterinarian injects it beneath the surface of the skin between the shoulder blades, like a routine shot. The process takes only a few seconds, and is virtually painless; it requires no special treatment or anesthetic. It may be painless to the dogs, they didn’t even flinch, but it brought tears to my eyes, it was a big needle.
While we were on our way home we got a call from our son, Adam, informing us that he had to take our grandson, Gage to emergency room this morning. Apparently when he was getting Gage out of the car in a playful jester he hoisted him over his shoulder and hit his face on the car door. He was cut above his eye. They glued it rather than putting in stitches. We talked to him and he seemed to be fine. Adam said he was very brave.
Here’s a picture from this birthday party in February he is 5.
Once we got home I finished making the rest of the meal. We had mashed potatoes, gravy, corn, cranberry sauce and broccoli with our turkey. Yummy. After dinner we relaxed and watched “American Idol”.
I kept a close eye on the boys to be sure they didn’t have any after effects from their injection and they seemed fine.
Bayer – 7 years old – A mixed breed (breeder told us Shih Tzu/Yorkie) the breeder also had long haired Chihuahua’s we think some of that went in too.
Buddy – He will be 5 this Saturday. He is a Shih Tzu/Poodle.
Mr. B – 5 years old – Yorkie. We have only had him since December 2006. He was on his way to the pound and we rescued him.
Until tomorrow have a good day.
See you down the road.
