flying needles

Oreo has been suffering with allergies this Fall, and I've been bringing him to his acupuncturist for some relief.

She's moved from a very busy vet office to a private office in a house, which is much better for Oreo,

Oreo has made himself at home!  Jumping on the furniture to look out the window.

He used to be very timid at his appointments,and would hide behind me on a leather bench.

Not here.

After the doctor put all his needles in, he decided to stroll around the room and give himself a good shake.   This caused half his needles to fly around the room.  Luckily, none of us got one stuck in our eye.

The doctor had to put in new needles.

After round 2, Oreo walked right up to the doctor, and showed her how he can take the needles out with his teeth.

Mr. Smarty Pants.

I told oreo he better behave, because the vet was typing up all this in his file, and it was going on his permanent record.

Then, Oreo pranced away, finally laid down, got in the acupuncture zone, looking all dreamy eyed, and nodded off for the next twenty minutes. He must've remembered....oh yea, this stuff makes me feel good.

He's such a goof.

eyeball popsicle

Tried to get some hammock time in this Saturday, in between the rain showers.

Chewy joined me on the hammock, but kept lying down/standing up.  He said, "This bed is too hard."  He just couldn't get comfortable.

Finally, he noticed the pillow my head was on.  He worked his way up to the top of the hammock, which is not an easy balancing move (he has some really good core strength!), and plopped himself on the pillow, wrapped around my head.

Then, licked my eyeball like a popsicle.

Unfortunately, all this fun ended too soon, as the rain started up again.  We'll try again next weekend.

"I hope next week's popsicle flavor is beef!"

same park, new look

It's been a beautiful fall weekend.

Everytime we go to the park, it looks different, because some leaves have fallen and new leaves are starting to turn.

Unfortunately, the ticks are out in full force now, searching out warm bodies to cling too. Not fun. Even though I love this gorgeous fall weather, the ticks make me hope for a good solid freeze.

Just when I finally got Chewy to stop and drink water from the creek to.

And here he is on "his" rock. He heads there every time!
