Veterinary train wreck

Somewhere in this house or on our property there is a broken mirror or a ladder that I keep walking under and don't even know it. As you all know Craig broke his leg in June and it is still an on going battle to get him fixed up. I don't think there has been a week go by this year that I haven't been to the vet or a physiotherapist. To top it off my dogs are now looking for ways to hurt them selves. A couple weeks ago Lisa and I loaded up the dogs and headed off the British Columbia for Holly's trial. When we left Meg had thrown up in her dog run but I thought nothing of it dogs do that sometimes. We Meg proceeded to get sick the whole way to Holly's. When we arrived I asked Wendy to look at Meg. She gave her expert opinion of WTF. I think x-rays are in order for the morning. Off I went to Holly's vet in Armstrong. And this is what we saw.

Kind of blurry because I took the picture with my cell phone but you get the idea.
Meg eat 3.5 pounds of rocks from her dog run.
Very unlike something she would do.

She was one sick puppy on the drive home. Didn't move an inch.
A week later we were back to the vet when she developed an abscess and it had to be drained. She was put on heavier antibiotics the help fight infection.
She is still on lock down but feeling much better.

As promised

Bad cell phone photos

Most days Joe didn't get up until around 10 AM

This was my view everywhere we went. Following Scott and Jenny. 

Amanda at Solider Hollow doing her movie interview after her run.

I love the VIP room at Solider Hollow

The famous Meeker statue.

Couple of Meeker locals. If the set out crew wore these outfits then maybe Meg would have seen her sheep up the field.

good times in the princess castle. Joe was the center of attention. I here Alison and him are BFF's now.

Alastair holding court as a webcast commentator. I am told he was very good at it.

Ten minutes from home after three weeks on the road.

Some September pictures

My co-pilot was less than chatty. He didn't really do a good job of keeping me company.

He quickly settled in to the dog trailing scene

As always Solider Hollow was amazing

I didn't take many pictures of Meeker. Mostly because my mood was teetering on the edge of insanity.
But I did take this picture as we were leaving.

Meeker really is the little trial that could. the middle of nowhere small town that supports the trial.
Next blog is bad cell phone photos.
