Spain Family 2013

The Dog, Year In Review By January 9, 2014 Tags: , , , , 2 Comments

Chad turned the big 3-0 this year, graduated from Residency and has a “real” job! I use quotation marks because when he was in residency he worked 80+ hours a week, now he works 40. It’s nice, and weird, to have him home more… no one is more excited than Bella 🙂 I tried to be but I don’t have a tail. Now, if only he could get his patients to stop asking when he will be turning 18 – then it might feel REAL for Chad.

Bella or rather Bella Booperton, Dowager Countess of Spain Castle (as she is formally known around these parts) is now 4 and has a personal trainer. I was hoping Santa would bring me one of those – but instead he brought me a Kindle Fire and now Chad can’t get me to leave the gym because I’m busy watching movies on the stairmaster. Win.

This past weekend we were walking home when I realized that Bella’s paws were all red. I once dogsat for a family who told me that they exercised their dogs by throwing a ball up a paved road and the dogs would chase after it and then return it, and repeat – and then she told me to be careful because they would play until their paws bled. So, of course, I immediately thought of that and my face melted off and I died.
