Pink Eye?

99.9% sure Keller pup has Pink Eye. Poor thing. The goop, the redness, the fact she can't fully open it when she looks at me...we're going to try to go to the Vet in the AM. I wish I had her attitude when I wasn't feeling well! She's still as rambunctious as ever, only taking a second here or there to try to scratch her eye.

We tossed the Kong frisbee in the backyard tonight during my dinner hour for a good while. It was so nice out, 75 degrees, sunny, low humidity, light breeze. You could see her smile just as wide at the thought of it. :)

Keller Meets Grandma Anderson

Mom came to visit Keller, Dave, and I this week (see this post for the details!) Keller was soooooo happy to have a visitor! We spoiled Keller a touch by giving her some ice cream (1st picture: vanilla - mom helped her out. She didn't get what it was at first!); taking her to the cities (2nd picture: just zonked out!); and taking her to the South Dog Park (3rd picture: it's so hot!).
I pick her up to take pictures, and she's getting soooo heavy! I realize too soon enough that I won't be able to do that anymore! :(

Keller is excited because she knows we have a visitor on the way tonight! My mama is headed to Rochester. We cleaned yesterday and we went to the dog park. Because it's hot outside. I also bought Keller some cheese balls, because we were out of treats, and I was going to bake some, but I was in noooooooo mood to turn on the oven.

What Is This Hot Crap?

Simply put - Keller doesn't like the heat and humidity. But what dog does? I walked her three different times today, two shorter in the hottest parts and a longer one this evening. I was going to take her to the dog park, but I got bogged down with stuff today. But I apparently tuckered her out enough. Our walk this evening though was very nice - summer-y outside on the trails!

I realize that we are lucky to have such a well-behaved dog. Well, generally. :) She's a whiner, but 9 times out of 10, she won't bark at other dogs, people, etc., and she'll really only bark when she's stranded on the other side of a creek she is too chicken to cross (see YouTube videos). I've never heard her growl, she's not protective, and by far she is a happy, happy puppy.

I got to use my new Wells Fargo check card today for the first time since I had created my own - I put the picture of Keller at Chesterwoods Park when we went canoeing and she was caked with sand. The woman at the check out asked if that was my dog. I smiled and said, you bet!

The More Outside I Am, The Better!

Sorry it's been awhile! Keller is up to roughly 35 pounds-ish. We were outside today (warm and sticky) playing with her Kong frisbee! She loves it. We were also playing with a big yellow volleyball...I'll put that up on YouTube. Dave's in Dallas for a few days, so we'll try to update each day so he doesn't miss her as much. :)

I found another one of her teeth today. It's a molar...I think they're almost all out!
