Today I took my lab Abigail
to get her annual shots and city license. That is always so much fun!!! Not because she hates it or fights it, but because she just gets so darn excited! Since she weighs close to 100 lbs, trying to keep a very excited dog under control at the rabies clinic held at the Humane Society where there are other dogs and cats is my workout for the day LOL. She's excited to get in the car, she's excited to get there, she's excited to get out, she's excited while filling out paperwork and paying, she's excited while getting the shots, she's excited going back out the door again and excited getting into the car and excited about every dog, kid, person, bike, etc she sees on the street as we are driving. She's a bundle of energy. The volunteers at the shelter were laughing at her when I had to give her age and I told them she was 7 years old. They said she's more excited than the puppies that go through there! She's so funny. And she sheds a ton. So I have hair all over me by the time we get back and all over my car, which is why she doesn't get to ride with me as much as she would like to. I've tried covering the seats but it doesn't work. There is still hair everywhere and she's usually so excited that the covers don't stay in place long. But I do take her with me sometimes. I just have to know that when we get back I have to go vacuum the car out good before anyone else (including me on days when I'm working) gets in it so they won't get covered with hair. Which is where I'm off to now..... to the vacuum!
