Check-Up Day!

Today Mason had a regular check-up and got his DHPP shot.  We're headed to sunny Florida for some vacation sunshine in a few weeks and he needed to get in to get some traveling supplies and a shot...yes, a shot.  Mason's due for his regular shot routine so we made sure to get his DHPP shot today.  He'll go back to get his rabies shot  right before we leave as he couldn't have it at the same time.  Peanut got her yearly check-up too and everything looked good.  She's ready to bask in the sunshine and sip a little water poolside.

I think Mason has gained some weight since being "fixed" and has filled out a little.  He weighed in at 4 pounds 3 oz. and is very healthy.  Dr. Vernon thought he looked perfect too!

Mason's been having a lot of fun this summer.  I think his most favorite pastime is chasing japanese beetles, flies and skinks.  Although he's not quite fast enough to catch one of the skinks, he still tries sniffing them out and chasing them off the patio.  Yesterday, I even caught him chewing on something inside the house.  When I pulled it away from him, it appeared to be a 2 inch piece of the dehydrated remains of a dead snake..ummm yeah, he likes crittering.  I guess Mason really has grown into his schnauzer hunting drive.  Fun FUN FUN...As for the frogs outside, he's just fine sniffing long as they don't move.

He's such an amazing cuddle puppy too...

Cutie Patootie...

Mason decided it was a bit too hot outside (with his scruffy hair) after our walk so he wanted to air out his armpits...ermmm ears.  I think he had his ears back for a good 20 minutes and wasn't a bit interested in flipping them back over.  I thought it was too cute not to take a few pictures.

Such a gorgeous little fellow, right?

One Proud American Puppy!

Doesn't he look proud!  Spending the Fourth just relaxing and enjoying our freedom.  We went for a nice 4 mile walk this morning (Mason pooped out half way and had to be put in his pouch, but he enjoyed the "ride" anyway) and had some time to just sit out on the patio and relax.  Ahhhh summer!
 Here are a few precious shots of Peanut relaxing too...She loves the sunshine!
Bye for now!
