Nelson woke up with goopy eyes this week. I needed to get him in to his first vet visit for a rabies shot and a couple other checks anyway. But the eyes. Oh, man. This dog in any sort of discomfort is already breaking my heart.

Thankfully, he’s got an incredible vet who took her time and was very patient with this new pet owner. I asked roughly 10,000 questions. Nelson did great with everything but that thermometer. (Ahem. Who can blame him?) He licked everyone’s hands before we left and had the energy to nearly eat a cat in the waiting room as a parting gift to the practice.

(My arms are more tired than my legs from our recent walks. He’s strong. I am not wise to the many ways of Ceasar or any other pet genius and there is apparently a squirrel baby boom in our neighborhood.)

I have completely become that crazy pet owner in less than a week who simply cannot imagine her life without this little guy. Now, off to snuggle that nose.
