Got Dogs?

We do.

Greta. Came to Houston from NYC. She's 10 now and the alpha at our home.

Greta's sidekick. Loves to chase her tail... only she doesn't have one!! Also came to Houston via NYC. 10ish years old. She's a VERY friendly dog. Likes to put her nose as close to your face as she can~ BUT will not lick you! (Thank God)

Monty. Monty was at a shelter in Queens. The SADDEST & SMELLIEST dog ever. After a $30 cab ride to the ghetto, we sat in the most horrific waiting area and here comes Monty being dragged down a hall with a rope. Unbelievable. Needless to say, he has not been dragged since. Adoption fee of $250???, another $30 cab ride home, MULTIPLE baths, and a shave, we had our fresh & clean new addition. His namesake is one of my husbands friends in Ireland.

Suzy- Poor baby, she is one lucky dog, she found her forever home. She loves the kids. Vet thinks she is between 3-4 years old.

Suzy & Monty

Lucy. Lucy was dumped at a Sports Authority somewhere in North Houston on one HOT August day. Poor baby. 12+ years old, blind and partially deaf, this old lady was being taken to the pound for a sad ending. She now resides with us, spending her time going from a dog bed next to my bed to a dog bed in front of our fireplace. Lucy loves to swim and spent quite a few days last summer getting in and out of our pool. Good for her hips. Love her.

Believe it or not, I still have THREE more dogs to post about. More to come....

Dr. Visits

Went for the babies 9 month check up yesterday morning (a little late as they are now 10 months!), and I am SO proud of myself. I did it SOLO. By solo I mean, I loaded all of the babies into the truck along with the quad stroller (which is super heavy and I prefer to use two double strollers),drove to the doctors office, unloaded all of them into the stroller and went to see the doctor- Had them all checked out, loaded them back into the stroller, then back to the truck, stopped off at Starbucks- and finally HOME. (I dropped them off at home with mom & nanny and then went to work?!?!)

Here are their 10 month stats:
