Vets, Doughnuts, and Chevy!

1st Bath!
Brantley got his first bath of the season. YAY! Okay, it was a little colder than I usually like to do it but hey, everyone else was doing it. He enjoyed it though so I'm okay with it. I've been putting Bag Balm on his scar and let me tell you. What scar? It looks so good, really excited. I know that scars show character and what he's been through, but this one I think just held him back. First thing the BO and my Dad noticed was his leg and immediately said it would hinder him in the long run. I took him anyway and I haven't had an issue yet! Let's keep it that way. I feel like helping this scar heal will be a big step for the both of us. I'm sure there will always be something there, but it will be a long time memory.

Chevy and I busted our butts this week.
Always walking, running, getting locked up at the kennel at work. Dealing with little dogs yipping at yapping at him and not being able to run around freely in the graveyard I think really stressed him out this past week. Luckily the next dog I'm sitting for and him are best friends so the transition will be easier. Although I love this dog, last night Chev and I got to spend one night at home. It was awesome. I slept on my own couch, still clothed, lights on, TV on, and covered in pizza grease. Gross, I know, but it needed to happen. I decided getting a large Hawaiian pizza for myself... Was a bad idea. Yes, I ate the WHOLE thing. Under 10 minutes? Maybe 20... Bad idea. Felt like crap when I woke up at 5AM, but at least I had enough hot water to wash my hair finally and even shave a little (pits and half a leg), then it was back to ice cold water. Great.

Sun-bathing
Chevy and I enjoyed our day off today and that's exactly what I was making it. I didn't want to do anything but be with MY dog and MY horse. Grabbed a coffee, turned out, and went for a short hike. I cleaned stalls and Amanda came with her puppy. Cutest little thing. We went out for another hike, longer this time. Her puppy was so good! He's very shy but I think Chevy helped bring the "barn dog" out in him. A baby-sat for me while I went out for a quick run. She let it slip that she never had Allie's Donuts before... Well THAT needed to change, I don't care how much my stomach hated me.

I will watch these while you go feed lunch... Honest.
After ponies were taken care of I ran Chevy home to nap and came back right in time to meet the vet. Brantley was a very VERY good boy and got his picture taken for his Coggins. I really liked the vet as well and my new pony-friend Julia was her assistant so it was nice that she finally got to meet him. Kate came too which was great. She got to ride yesterday for the first time and I was so happy to have her there. Miss her a lot! (I know you may be reading this, it's true, I do <3). 

Everything looked good! Fecal sample in June... I don't usually do that buttttt I should probably do it. Ran home and took a nap... Should've cleaned, but as I said, DAY OFF!

Packed my stuff and Chevy and I went and took Mickey for a nice long walk. They were excited to see each other. I'll be here for 2 weeks and although Dad will be back, I think Chevy will still stay with me.

The Boys!

Oh man, I was so hungover from pizza love the next morning. I wish I could've shared.

I love that I can put this dog in any situation, say "stay", and he POSES! It's ridiculous, but so much fun.

I feel like this post may need hashtags such as #idowhatiwant and #sorrynotsorry
