Brief Update

So I'll do a really short update now. I promise pictures and a more involved update soon. 1. I was put in charge of a unique project here at school on April 1st. I am treating/moitoring a heartworm positive dog name Elijah. He is the first one that we have had here at school. It is sad but cool also as I am in charge of everything from walking to administering medications to x-rays and talking to the vets about treatment options and protocols. So far he is doing well. Fingers crossed! I will post pictures of him and keep you updated on his progress. 2. Glacier went into heat Sunday the 6th. School has been boring without her. 3. I again went to Eye Clinic this year. It was a ton of fun! Got to see old friends and make new ones. It was quite a bit different this year so I will update on what happend this year a bit later. 4. Congrats to MK for correctly guessing that puppy #6 (sorta) is a FGSD. She is sister to Sarah's Keller. Her name is Katie. We picked her up on our way home from Eye Clinic. She is with Faith for now but I will get her soon! I will put pics of her up ASAP. 5. Evals was on Wednesday. They were Glacier's last! *sad face* She was such a good girl besides her crate barking issue which was amplified a bit by her being in heat and being clingy at the moment. I got to work with our RM on some new stuff we are trying with some of the more difficult dogs in the region. I think that is about it for now. I will update with pictures hopefully by Monday. Thanks for being patient with me.

Awww, what a cute and normal name! I like it! Do you? Will Katie be your first full Shep? I can't wait to see pictures of her (and maybe some of Glacier too!). :-)

I've been trying to comment on your blog forever, but Blogger always gets mad at me.:( Katie is a great name! I love the GSD. Too bad Glacier came into heat. Ick.
