They have the best lives. I’m sorry about Casey, but I’m glad she’s doing better.
Thank you! I try to make sure they have a great life. I love just being with them. Hikes are definitely their favorite. Casey's news was a bit of a shock but I'll do whatever she needs. We will keep an eye on it especially since she is part boxer so heart disease is high but she doesn't need any restrictions yet which I'm so happy about. I just want her to enjoy life with her brother!

Casey and Oakley had a play date with my friend's 11 month old lab Dolly! They had a blast chasing each other in and out of the river. It was great to see them act with a puppy especially Oakley. He is anxious around other dogs so to see him engaging in play made me so happy. I'm on a list for a puppy next year which makes me excited and nervous because him and Casey are my main priority but seeing them with other dogs is making me feel like getting a puppy will be a good decision.

I am officially on vacation for the week. Of course my days will be spent with the pups! Today we just spent the day at the house, they ran around the hay field now that it's cut. I'm hoping to get them on a couple hikes this week and I found out there is a dog beach now that far from us. I honestly took time off to be with them so I'm hoping the heat won't be to bad even if we are going to be in a heat wave so we can do everything I have planned.

Sounds like a really fun week you have planned! You’re going to have a couple of really happy dogs there!
That's the plan! I honestly just want to be with them not sure if we will make it to the beach but they will be swimming either way. Oak and I just got back from a ride. We just bought a UTV and he really loves running along side of it! Thankfully he learned at the daycare he went to how to safely run along side one with distance between him and the vehicle. Casey will gladly just watch her brother from the deck lol

They look very happy about it! I hope it isn’t too hot.

It was great being with them today and not having to worry about work! Unfortunately it looks like we will be in a heat wave this week so the dog beach might not happen because I don't want them in their crates for long in the car but the pond we go to is down the street which is good so we will definitely be there!

That UTV is awesome! What fun for Oakley! Any chance of getting a video of him?

Hopefully this link works
This was him earlier in our hay field

Almost made it my whole vacation without having to bring a dog to work till this morning. Oakley woke up this morning not able to turn his head or look at me without turning his whole body towards me. My poor boy has a neck injury. I'm unsure what he did. I know I'm lucky I can just bring him into work. He is on carprofen for 10 days, he had first laser treatment today and will probably do another treatment tomorrow. I need to keep quiet at least for a few days and if he goes for a walk no collar so I have to get him a harness.

Oh no! Poor Oakley! That really is a strange injury. Hope he gets some relief soon ❤
I wish I knew what he did. I'm noticing a little difference now he is moving his head more. Trying to not have him overdue it but he is such an active boy that keeping him calm is hard. I'm going to bring him in tomorrow to use the laser on him again so hopefully he will heal faster. I don't know how long he will be okay with not playing ball.

I’m sorry that happened to Oakley. I hope he heals up quickly.
He was a little better tonight. He definitely can't handle doing nothing so I did some place work with him to help tire his brain. I bought him a harness and he was so confused by it when he went for a short walk. He will have another laser treatment and if we feel he is doing okay I might try a short hike. He likes training but it doesn't tire him out as much as he needs. He also seemed mad that I wouldn't throw his ball tonight no matter how many times he threw it in my way.

I’m sorry. It’s hard when they don’t understand. My last Golden hurt his back one time and it is difficult to get them to be more leisurely.

He definitely is worse when it's time for his carprofen. Once that kicks in, he is ready to run. He had his laser treatment this morning and acted like nothing is wrong when he went to great everyone but he won't comfortably lay on his left side yet. The only plus of the heat wave is its to hot to be outside so he is a little more forced to be quiet

It's crazy to me but somehow my puppy grew up! Oakley is 4 years old today! He is such a goofball, he keeps me laughing. His confidence is showing more and more and I couldn't be happier to see him be comfortable around new dogs or going new places. He runs constantly and is still so happy to tease Casey any chance he gets. I just wish my boy would stop growing up! Happy Birthday Oakley! View attachment 895308 View attachment 895309
