Vienna goes to the vet

Vienna had a little vet visit this morning, and she now weighs around 70 lbs! She is still a little skinny girl though, so I'm sure she still has some room to grow! Normally she is a bit shy at the vet, but today she was shaking, and refused to go with the nurse to the back room. She even slipped out of her collar and came running like a torpedo back into the room and huddled behind me with her head sticking through my arms. I'm not sure why she was so frightened this time, but we finally got her in the back room to get her nails trimmed. She came back smiling and happy and ready to go home to big brother.

Vienna gets crazy excited when it snows. Sunday morning she thought it a good idea to come barreling back inside and jump on Ronix and I as we were cuddled in bed, and kept hopping on Ronix until he pulled himself out of bed. I kept telling Vienna "V, we aren't getting up right now, it's 5 am." I couldn't figure out why she was so excited and wanted to get up until a few hours later I discovered we had a few inches of snow on the ground. Silly girl!

The weather here is beautiful today! It could definitely stand to jump 20 degrees, but as long as the sun is shining I won't complain. I am on a mission to find pet safe plants to put in my backyard so I can have at least one part of it be nice enough to sit out on a sunny day and read. I was hoping to put a lilac bush in the back, but first I have to make sure it is safe. That is my mission today on my sunny day off, hopefully I can find some pretty ones! Suggestions are welcome! :) Happy planting! (Or at least happy plant finding until it's time to plant!)


  1. Glad the vet visit went okay :)

  2. We never had a problem with Shasta Daisies, lilacs and lamb's ear. Lamb's ear multiplies quickly so be warned. Salt Lake valley is supposed to be warm this weekend-Yay for us huh!!!???

  3. Yes! I took Ronix and V out today actually, I was just about to do a quick update. :) Thanks for the plant suggestions! I love lilacs and I am planning on planting one or two tomorrow. We need to meet up one of these days at the DP!
