The Boys are Ready for Christmas

We've all been bustiling around getting ready, so of course Howie and Zack had to get in the middle of it all...the groomer came and gave them their Christmas bath, nails clipped and a Christmas bandana. These two are not the labs you see on TV with bandanas all the time...they hate them...it was all I could do to get a picture.

 


Tuesday was Zack's day to go in to the vet, be sedated and have lots of x-rays and radiographs to make sure that his leg was healing properly. It's been 6 weeks since his surgery and I'm thrilled to say, he's doing great. There was just a little area in the bone that hadn't totally fused together yet...so he's still on limited activity for 3 more weeks. But they were very pleased with his progress. He's been released and we don't have to go back unless he has a problem...OMG no more problems please...

I've been sewing today...I'm working on a baby quilt for a neighbor with 30's fabrics...I'll show pictures when I get it together...the blocks are done...just have to get it together. I'm going to go do some more stitching before I have to start some dinner.

Tomorrow, I have to make more pretzels and do some cookies...oh I love this time of the year!
