So very happy for all of you - looks like they have their paws firmly planted already

I miss the plaintive pleading wail,
I miss the wistful loving glance,
I miss the circling welcome dance"

these pics are so cute... Bella has developed a similar habit... but she's a bed potato... If I can't see her nearby, I usually find her on a bed... snuggled into a very tight ball, and looking at me as if she expects me to chase her out... She loves her creature comforts...

So we found a wonderful Vet in town that was hand picked by their Fairy God Mother! She spent 2 hours with us and was so amazing!! No heart murmurs, heart rates good, normal temps, negative tick borne diseases, negative heart worms. The only issues were that Bae Lee (Baker) has a small hot spot. So they shaved around it and prescribed an antibotic and prednisone. Keeper (Rainier) has a very mild yeast infection in one ear. Bae Lee has a very small fatty lipoma and tiny sebacious cyst. The vet did a needle biopsy and everything looked good. She felt that their coats were in excellent condition and they were very healthy. Their teeth looked good, but Keeper's were a little worn down. They got their Raibies vaccination.

The Vet was really surprised that they were so loving and well behaved to have lived outdoors their whole life. The old vets records showed that they had only been in 3 times since they were 8 weeks old. Their birthdate is 2/2/2006. They have a birthdate coming up and will be 7 years old! I should have know they were Aquarians, because we bonded immediately!!

It will take a while for the Hemopet Blood draw results (courtesy of their Fairy God Mother!!) to come back. This test was set up, arranged and taken care of by SM-thanks so much SM!!

So it was very good news!! Sure could have been so much worse. The vet was so surprised by how loving and well behaved they were. She said that being outdoors their whole life, it was amazing that they don't have an agressive bone in them!!

So, I'm sure that you've noticed that our kids names are Bae Lee and Keeper. We're still working on their middle names. Looking forward to having a wonderful weekend with our kids. Think we're going to take a long walk on the beach and play lots of ball!! It is amazing how we already love, love, love them to pieces!!
