Closeup of Gary's new bling.


Gary's new collar turned out well. It looks really good on him and didn't come apart during the walk. He's such a rotten dog, but I love him. Poor guy. His thyroid tested a bit low and he's got dry skin and a sensitive stomach. So he's on thyroxine, 3v caps, and sensitive stomach Science Diet dog food. He also has nasty greyhound teeth so I bought him some T/D prescription diet dog food to use as treats to help his teeth. I also use Oravet. This dog is seriously taking half of my paycheck this pay period! He's such a sweet dog though I can't help but love him.

A Collar for Gary...must resist...


I've been itching to buy a designer collar for Gary...but they're are expensive. This one is one of my particular favorites at 2 Hounds Design. They have soo many cute collars.




Actually... I think this one is my favorite, but it doesn't specify if it's a martingale collar (a must for a greyhound collar) and it's even more expensive.


This one would be really flashy...but I think it's cool.


I also like this one. Gary would look like a prince.

Four Eyes


I bought two new glasses today. It was cheaper to buy two than just one (Success Vision Express 2 for $99). The other pair is a black wire square set. I really like the red ones. I only need them to read the board in classroom and help me read signs while driving at night.

I'm working at Westrock again. I've really enjoyed it this year although Dr. LaVergne goes on more trips than last year. The staff is pleasant to work with, and my hours are exactly what I wanted. 8-4 Monday through Friday. No weekends. No closing. Almost all vet assistant work with little kennel or receptionist work. AND I got a raise. Dr. Travis is the newest vet to join the Westrock team. So far she has been a pleasure to work with. She will practice on exotic animals that normal dog and cat vets will not so I've been able to help treat ferrets and bunnies. Ferrets are odd little creatures. There hearts are lower in their little bodies than I expected. To restrain a ferret you simply hold by the scruff and let its body dangle. I feel like I should support it's bottom half, but some ferrets will use that as a springboard to escape. Odd, stinky creatures.
