Atomic Dog

Speaking of dogs, my first dog I named Atomic Dog after this song. Haven’t listened to this song in many years. It used to bring down after my beloved Atomic was put down at the ripe old age of 13 years. But I’m glad that I gave it another listen, it brings back some awesome memories and has a really great funky beat. Thanks, once again, you’ve made my day.

Vet Scrubs

I had to take one of my dogs to the vet today, a trip that no one enjoys taking, but twice a year I load her up in the car and haul her old butt up the street to the local veterinarian for her check ups. Squeaky is over 13 years old and she doesn’t like having to get in and out of the back seat anymore and she knows where we are going so she doesn’t make it any easier than she possibly can for the duration of the entire task.

I really like the people that work at this medical facility for animals. They are always friendly and I usually don’t have to wait very long for any of the many procedures, office visits, shots, and all the other times we end up in their waiting room. It’s nice to see their dress policy allows the more upbeat vet scrubs for their medical uniforms that most folks are required to wear if they are in any type of medical position. They have some pretty cool veterinary scrub fashions to choose from these days, not just Donald Duck and Mickey Mouse that we are all so used to seeing so much of for so long.

New Red Wing Boots Thanks to Scooter

Looks like I’m going to have to buy another pair of women’s red wing boots, since Scooter (our dog) decided that he didn’t appreciate being left alone in the house this afternoon while we all enjoyed a nice picnic with several family members outside with this beautiful weather that we have been blessed with this weekend. Scooter has never done anything like this before, usually I let him outside with us but for some reason that didn’t happen and now I’ve got to find some new work boots and fast.

If I can get hubby off of his favorite site on the computer called “put this on” I might be able to find a pair and get them ordered in a timely fashion with some of the money that I have left from this week’s paycheck. Having to use this money to replace my boots will certainly take away from my lunch money for the next two weeks. Looks like I’ll be packing home made lunches for a while, sigh.

Dogs and Footwear

Today seems to be all about dogs and footwear, LOL! I just now discovered that not only did Scooter destroy my work boots but he also managed to chew up my ash bowie sneakers that I just got for Christmas. I’ve never owned any wedge sneaker heels and always wanted a pair so my older sister was nice enough to buy me a pair that she found online for my Christmas present just 5 months ago.

I don’t think that I have the guts to tell her what happened to them, she isn’t all that crazy about dogs anyway and this would just really tick her off. So not only do I have to find new work boots but I have to find a new pair of these wonderful wedge sneakers that I can get to replace and hopefully keep the peace in the family. Looks like I have my work cut out for me tomorrow inside on the computer. Oh well, it’s supposed to rain all day tomorrow, so I’m glad that we got to enjoy the good weather day today.
