    I can't be the only one who started reading this one and thought "she got the wrong thread!" :rofl1:

    Seriously awesome, though. I love when people exceed expectation with anticipating dog behaviours.

    Dr.'s appointment went well, referral was a little odd but shouldn't be a problem. I get the birth contr I want and need and everything's good. :)

    So much stress gone. Now I just have to get my teeth done...lol

    I know, right? I'm so used to running interference for him that I didn't quite know what to do with myself.

    An old bra, which didn't fit for a while, fits again, because apparently gaining 3lbs completely changed my frame! Yay!

    I also realized I look a little like Joseph Gordon Levitt today, so there's that.

    My aunt gave Aurelia two teensy little goldfish fry, and they're super cute and she loves them. She's really excited to see them change colors as they grow. :)

    Got a new lunchbox that I really love
    [​IMG]
    Lots of little compartments that you can cover/take out

    and lots of healthy lunch ideas!

    Oh and I was due new running shoes.. my mom went all crazy insisting I get VFFs. I might've said something like "I would rather gauge my eyes out with a spoon then walk around in those shoes" ..or something equally as dramatic lol

    so we reached a compromise. The bottoms are designed by vibrams, they are light, comfy..and still look like shoes lol

    :D yay for new toys!

    Fran, I think Merrell has some athletic shoes with Vibram soles. I have a pair of their hiking shoes.

    Renee I want to read it one day!!

    Bamm and Joey are getting along fine. Bamm has given him lip a few times but only when Joey tries to pounce on him. Other than that they have been doing great when I give them offleash time around each other. Bamm still mostly ignores him, but he has actually initiated play a little bit which is huge.

    I know I just posted about Bamm and Joey but a few min ago I caught them playing tug-o-war with a toy together. Bamm looked like he was really enjoying himself.

    We actually went up to NJ for this one. It was just across the Delaware border, so a couple girlfriends and I got a hotel for the weekend and squeezed 3 runs in over the two days. It was teeny tiny, with only 14 dogs running!

    If I ever hear of another one within reasonable drive of here, I will totally let you know. I betcha all your pups would enjoy it!
